Guido Germano, PhD

Director, Division of Artificial Intelligence Medicine

Guido Germano, PhD, researches on how to develop software to allow computers to process and analyze 3-D images of the heart in much the same way an experienced human operator would. He also studies how to apply artificial intelligence techniques to the measurement of parameters critical to understanding, the state and behavior of the human heart.

Many of the physicians who have medical staff privileges to practice medicine at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center are independent physicians, and not employees or agents of the hospital. These independent physicians bill separately for their services. You should contact your physician to determine their status and billing practices.
