Radiomics and Augmented Intelligence Laboratory RAIL Lab

The Radiomics and Augmented Intelligence Laboratory (RAIL) of the Department of Radiology and the Norman Fixel Institute for Neurological Diseases is involved in the inception, development, validation, and translation of clinical AI applications for precision diagnostics, streamlining of healthcare processes, and enhanced health quality and safety.  


The RAIL lab builds on UF’s artificial intelligence (AI) initiative, and UF/UF Health’s unique position as one of the top five public research universities in the United States and only a few comprehensive universities having medical and all other major professional and scientific disciplines co-localized on the same, contiguous campus.

The RAIL lab has active cross-disciplinary collaborations and has members both from the College of Medicine and the College of Engineering. We also collaborate with key industry partners in medical imaging and healthcare. This multi-disciplinary laboratory based at the Fixel Institute uses state of the art technology, including AI, with a focus on developing and translating clinically impactful medical AI applications.

One of the unique aspects of the RAIL lab is our team’s focus on not only developing state of the art software but doing this while considering the practical challenges and necessities for successful deployment and adoption so it can be brought into clinical practice to positively impact healthcare practice and every patient’s journey within the healthcare system.
