August 26, 2022 — AI Metrics, an early stage radiology software company, announces changes to its executive leadership team, naming Dr. Andrew Smith as Chief Medical Officer and appointing Bob Jacobus as CEO. 

AI Metrics, launched in 2019 by Jacobus, Paige Severino, and radiologist and researcher Dr. Smith is developing software to more accurately assess cancer treatment effectiveness. The founders set out to leverage augmented intelligence in innovative imaging software solutions, improve radiology workflows, quantitative metrics, and reporting in clinical practice and clinical trials. 

Dr. Smith, the Company’s initial CEO, will take on the newly created role of Chief Medical Officer while continuing his role as Chairman of the Board. Dr. Smith is currently a Radiologist and Oncologic Imager at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He is Vice Chair of Clinical Research, Chief of Body CT, and is also the Clinical Director of AI at the University’s Heersink Institute of Biomedical Innovation

“I am excited to take on the role of Chief Medical Officer at AI Metrics, where I will be able to focus on the clinical aspects, the necessary research and new and innovative advancements needed in radiology and cancer treatment evaluation,” said Dr. Smith. “AI Metrics was created to utilize advanced technologies to help standardize reporting with greater inter-observer agreement, while decreasing variations in impressions – making it more useful and easier for oncologists to interpret data and information for their patients.” 

Jacobus was the company’s initial COO and has more than 20 years of experience in founding, investing in and raising capital for startups. He is an experienced financial professional, with significant industry experience in investment banking, early-stage ventures, financial management, new business development, engineering, operations, and manufacturing. Jacobus also has deep experience in the biotech, medical products manufacturing, software, transportation and insurance sectors. 

​​"I am honored to lead this innovative company that is delivering solutions to radiologists who work on important issues such as saving lives and working with advanced cancers,” said Jacobus. “My role as CEO is to lead AI Metrics as it helps solve real radiology pain points using AI technologies to improve accuracy, consistency, and efficiency in radiology.”
