Banzato, Tommaso

Tommaso Banzato is an Associate Professor of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging at the University of
Padua and is currently the head of the Radiology Unit of the Veterinary Teaching Hospital of the
same university. He received his PhD from the University of Padua in 2013 with the thesis on the
standardisation of several diagnostic imaging techniques in snakes, lizards and birds. In 2019 he
was funded by the University of Padua for a project aimed to use deep learning to predict the
grading of human meningiomas using a translational application of a methodology he has
developed in dogs. Since 2021 he is a guest member of the AI committee of the ACVR. He has
authored more than 50 publications and cooperates with several international research teams. At

present time his research is mainly focused on the development and testing of deep learning-
based applications on diagnostic imaging of companion animals. Furthermore, he is commented

to the comparative study of aging. For such a research he was recently founded by the Italian
Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR) for a project aimed to compare the aging
process in dogs and humans.
