About me

Dr. Ross Filice is a Professor, the Chief of Imaging Informatics, and the Director of Research in the Department of Radiology at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital as well as the Chief of Imaging Informatics for MedStar Medical Group Radiology. He is the Director of the Georgetown Radiology Informatics Mini-Fellowship and also holds a position as Clinical Informatics Scientist in the National Center for Human Factors in Healthcare within the MedStar Institute for Innovation. Dr. Filice performs clinical and teaching duties as an attending physician in the Abdominal Imaging Section at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital.

After earning bachelor's degrees in Computer Science and Molecular Biology at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, Dr. Filice earned his Doctor of Medicine at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. This was followed by an internship in Internal Medicine at Greenwich Hospital, a residency in Diagnostic Radiology at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, and a fellowship in MRI and Imaging Informatics at the University of Maryland Medical System.

Dr. Filice focuses on imaging the chest, abdomen, and pelvis using all modalities including MRI, CT, Ultrasound, and Radiography (X-Rays) and with particular focus on liver MRI, prostate MRI, pelvic MRI, multi-modality cancer imaging, and multi-organ transplant evaluation. He also works on enterprise and operational informatics challenges including managing and improving the enterprise imaging platform, deployment of artificial intelligence tools, establishing opportunistic screening programs, and collaborative informatics, quality, and safety research. He is regularly invited to speak nationally and internationally on imaging informatics topics, serves as a reviewer for multiple journals, and has published numerous articles in the field.
