The addition of Jacob is an important part of contextflow’s mission to improve radiology workflows by developing software in close collaboration with leading clinical radiologists.
contextflow GmbH, the Vienna-based developer of deep learning-based software for medical image analysis, is thrilled to announce the addition of Jacob Visser as Clinical Advisor. Jacob will make contributions around high-quality annotated data, user interface (UI) design, and the clinical impact of patterns/diseases for product development.
Jacob holds several distinguished positions at Erasmus MC in Rotterdam, NL: Assistant Professor of Value-Based Imaging, Chief Medical Information Officer, and Head of Imaging IT and Value-Based Imaging. He is also a member of the European Society of Radiology’s (ESR) Value-Based Radiology Subcommittee, and serves as a member of the European Society of Medical Imaging Informatics’ (EuSoMii) Scientific Committee. As if his schedule weren’t busy enough, Jacob contributes to the Radiological Society of North America’s (RSNA) Working Group for Common Data Elements.
As contextflow CEO & Co-Founder Markus Holzer puts it, “Jacob’s resume reflects both his skills as a practicing radiologist and the trust the radiology community has in his abilities to translate new technologies into improved patient outcomes. We’re incredibly lucky to benefit from his guidance.”
Regarding his inspiration to join the team, Jacob says, “I have been following contextflow’s progress practically since the company’s founding, and their traction in the area of lung CT is impressive. Being able to shape clinical decision support tools that myself and colleagues can benefit from in clinical practice is a big motivator. We’re literally shaping the future.”
