Larry Schwartz is Radiologist-in-Chief at the New York-Presbyterian Hospital and diagnostic radiologist at the Columbia University Medical Center. He is Chair of the Imaging Committee of the Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology (formerly CALGB) and Chair of the Imaging Committee for SWOG. For the past 20 years, the focus of his work has been quantitative imaging biomarkers in oncology, and in particular, utilizing CT and MRI, developing advanced imaging techniques and imaging biomarkers. Working together with Dr. Zhao’s group, he has developed quantitative techniques to automate the calculation of tumor burden as well as metastases specific sites and developed quantitative feature analyses on CT and MRI to correlate with genomic data. He also contributed to the creation of multiple public databases for creating algorithms and for providing test data sets to other investigators. The CT reproducibility study is now available to investigators globally to evaluate  algorithms  and  the  performance  of  repeat  CT  scans.  Professor Schwartz  participated  in  multiple  national  and international  efforts  of  image  standardization  and  the  creation  of  response -based  criteria,  including  the international standards for RECIST and for Prostate Cancer thru PCWG2 and PCWG3.
