Lior Drukker is a fetal medicine specialist sharing his time between hands-on fetal medicine and research at the Nuffield Department of Women’s and Reproductive Health at the University of Oxford.
Dr Drukker’s main research project is Perception Ultrasound by Learning Sonographer Experience (PULSE) project. In PULSE, he utilizes artificial intelligence (AI) to teach a machine how sonographers scan. Ultimately, the aim is to improve pregnancy imaging analysis for clinical purposes and develop considerably more powerful assistive interpretation methods of obstetric scanning. Dr Drukker’s supervisors are Prof. Alison Noble of the Institute of Biomedical Engineering (IBME) and Prof. Aris Papageorghiou of the Nuffield Department of Women’s and Reproductive Health. Owing to his intensive computer science background as well as fetal medicine expertise, in the PULSE project, Dr Drukkers holds the position of bridging between engineers and physicians.
His additional clinical and research interests are neurosonography, quality improvement, and cutting-edge ultrasound technologies.
