RSNA Value of Imaging through Comparative Effectiveness (VOICE) Program


Whether you’re new to comparative effectiveness research (CER), or are an experienced imaging researcher who wants to take your research to the next level, RSNA’s Value of Imaging through Comparative Effectiveness (VOICE) program is designed to help you achieve your goals and learn the key methodologies needed to perform CER, such as decision analysis and systematic review.

Led by a multi-institutional team of experienced faculty, this innovative and interactive nine-month program uses a blended learning approach by incorporating:

  • Hands-on training
  • Web-based videos
  • Webinars and readings
  • Faculty support
  • Extended access to course material

The VOICE program is one of the few that provides imaging science researchers with the opportunity to gain knowledge and skills that can be applied to eliciting the value and cost-effectiveness of diagnostic imaging procedures and imaging-based procedures. Plus, the program includes ongoing faculty support online and access to a discounted student license to TreeAge software during the second part of the course.

Course dates and locations

The 2022-23 VOICE program has been canceled for this cycle. More information will be available by February 2023.
