  • Biography
    Brandon D. Gallas provides mathematical, statistical, and modeling expertise to the evaluation of medical imaging devices at the FDA. His main areas of research are image quality, computer-aided diagnosis, imaging physics, and the design, execution, and statistical analysis of reader studies ([https://github.com/DIDSR/iMRMC/releases], https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/iMRMC/index.html). Recently, he has been investigating pathologist performance and agreement using whole slide imaging devices and the microscope (https://ncihub.org/groups/eedapstudies). These studies are enabled by an evaluation environment that registers the digital images to the glass slides (https://github.com/DIDSR/eeDAP/releases ). Dr. Gallas also participates in the Pathology Innovation Collaborative Community (https://digitalpathologyalliance.org/), a regulatory science initiative to harmonize and standardize digital pathology processes to speed up innovation to patients.
