Dr. Masoom Haider
SENIOR CLINICIAN SCIENTIST

Dr. Masoom Haider is Director of the Sinai Health System Research MRI and Head of the Radiomics and Oncologic Imaging Research Lab at Mount Sinai Hospital. He is a Staff Radiologist, Mount Sinai Hospital, Senior Clinician Scientist, LTRI and Professor, Department of Medical Imaging, University of Toronto as well as an Ontario Institute of Cancer Research Clinician Scientist

Dr. Haider is also the Associate Vice Chair of the Biomarkers, Radiomics, Quantitation, Theranostics Group, Medical Imaging, Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto. He was previously Chief, Medical Imaging, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre.

He received his MD from the University of Ottawa and undertook additional training at the University of Toronto and the Cleveland Clinic Foundation.

Dr. Haider’s research focuses on prostate cancer localization with MRI using multiparametric approaches; radiological pathologic correlation in prostate cancer, GU malignancies and other abdominal and pelvic malignancies; and feature analysis of tumors for imaging biomarker validation (radiomics) and therapy response assessment.

He is also interested in functional assessment of tumors using MRI and CT, pancreatic and hepatobiliary cancer assessment with MRI and computer-aided diagnosis.

He is a co- Investigator on CIHR-funded Impact Grant: Canadian Epigenetics, Environment, and Health Research Consortium (CEEHRC) Phase II as well as the Terry Fox Foundation-funded Project Grant in Porphysome Nanoparticle-Enabled Image-Guided Cancer Interventions.

Dr. Haider holds three patents on technologies related to medical imaging as well as intellectual property related to medical imaging teaching. He has published more than 180 publications in peer-reviewed journals.
 

 

 

 

At a Glance

  • Head of the Radiomics and Oncologic Imaging Research Lab at Mount Sinai Hospital
  • Staff Radiologist, Mount Sinai Hospital, Senior Clinician Scientist, LTRI and Professor, Department of Medical Imaging, University of Toronto
  • Expert in oncologic imaging with a research focus in abdominal and pelvic MRI and therapeutic response assessment and quantitative imaging (radiomics) of cancer 

 

Major Research Activities

Currently our team is using machine learning and artificial intelligence methods combined with quantitative imaging biomarkers derived from radiomics to develop predictive and prognostic signatures from MRI and CT in prostate and pancreatic cancer. In prostate cancer, automated segmentation of the prostate and cancer sites on multiparametric MRI is being developed to aid in treatment planning and reproducible interpretation for precision medicine. In pancreatic cancer, a better understanding of radiologic pathologic correlates for non invasive assessment of the tumor microenvironment are being studied. A computational image analysis pipeline that incorporates the expertise of radiologists, pathologists and oncologists around medical imaging forms the core of the lab.
