Professor Changhong Liang graduated and obtained his Ph.D. from Guangdong Cardiovascular Institute in 1998. In 1988, he joined the Radiology Department of Guangdong Provincial People's hospital, and served as a physician, and later as an attending physician, associate chief physician (1996) and chief physician (2000). He was appointed as the supervisor of Ph.D in Southern Medical University in 2004, and then as the supervisor of Ph.D in Shantou University and in South China University of Technology. His current clinical research and teaching mainly focus on abdominal and cardiovascular radiology, molecular imaging, imaging data mining and artificial intelligence. He has been the PI of 10 scientific research grants, including National Key Research and Development Project, NSFC(Natural Science Foundation of China), the sub-project of the National Eleventh-Five Year Research Program of China, Natural Science Foundation of Guangdong Province, Guangdong Science and Technology Research Project, etc. As the first author, corresponding author or a key author, he has published over 60 papers in prestigious journals, including Journal of Clinical Oncology, Clinical Cancer Research and Radiology. His research findings were awarded with 4 scientific technique prizes. As the main inventor, he was granted 8 patents for invention. He is also the chief editor of 8 textbooks and the chief translator of 3 English textbooks. And recently he has shown special interest in the application of radiomics and deep learning in diagnosis and clinical prediction model construction. His research findings on oncology radiomics is in the leading position in the world. 
Professor Liang is the expert with State Council Special Allowance, Chief Scientist of National Key R&D Program of China, Medical Leading Talent in Guangdong Province, Vice Dean of Medical College, South China University of Technology, Director of Imaging Medicine Division, Guangdong Provincial People's Hospital. His current positions in academic societies include President of Asian Society of Abdominal Radiology, Vice Chairman of Chinese Society of Radiology, Vice President of Chinese Association of Radiologist and Chairman of Guangdong Association of Radiologist. He also serves as the associate editor of Chinese Journal of Radiology.
