AI

The webinar, “AI, an Ally or an Enemy?” will be a roundtable discussion featuring speakers Curtis P. Langlotz, MD, PhD, RSNA Board liaison for infor­mation technology and annual meeting and professor of radiology and biomedical informatics at Stanford University; Paul Chang, MD, professor of radiology and vice chair, radiology informatics, Univer­sity of Chicago; and Adam Flanders, MD, professor of radiology, co-director, neu­roradiology/ENT radiology and vice chair, imaging informatics at Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia. This webinar will be highly interactive with the panel answering questions from attendees.

The first three webinars of the series, “Intro to AI and Machine Learning: Why All the Buzz,” “Current State and Future Perspectives of AI” and “Future Appli­cations of AI” are available for purchase on-demand.

Members can access the live webinars and the on-demand recordings for $35 per webinar. Non-members can access both versions for $50 per webinar. The live webinars offer CME credit and the on-demand versions offer SA-CME credit. For more information, visit RSNA.org/AI-Webinars.

RSNA/ASNR Comparative Effectiveness Research Training (CERT) Program

RSNA and the American Society of Neuroradiology (ASNR) jointly sponsor the Comparative Effectiveness Research Training (CERT) Program, an interactive course in com­parative effectiveness research (CER), targeted to junior faculty and senior trainees in imaging science. The CERT program provides an introduction to the methodology and tools for performing CER, including technology assessment, risk benefit analysis and cost-effectiveness evaluation. The CERT program is a series of online modules, a 1½ day in-person workshop and online didactic lectures and grant proposal review discussions. The next session begins in October.

Accepted participants are responsi­ble for travel expenses and onsite hotel accommodations. There is no fee for this course. Apply online at RSNA.org/CERT or contact RSNA staff at dor@rsna.org with questions.

Introduction to Research for International Young Academics

The Introduction to Research for International Young Academics (IRIYA) workshop encourages young radiologists from around the world to pursue careers in academic radiology.

During a four-day seminar held during the RSNA annual meeting, participants will learn about academic radiology, gain real-world insight from other RSNA mem­bers and network with future mentors.

Nominations must be submitted by a radiology department chairperson or training director. Applicants must be from outside the U.S. and Canada and a resident or fellow currently in a radiol­ogy training program, or a radiologist who is no more than two years out of training, and beginning or considering an academic career.

2019 Physics Modules Now Offer SA-CME Credit

Beginning with the release of the 2019 RSNA/Association of Physicists in Medicine Physics Modules, the modules will offer SA-CME credit.

SA-CME credit is only available for topics released in 2019 and future models. Previously released Physics Modules do not offer SA-CME credit.

Serving as a refresher for learners seeking knowledge about medical-physics concepts, the Physics Modules also provide key information for residents preparing for the CORE exam. 

The following modules will be released with SA-CME credit in the first quarter of 2019 (listed in order of release):

  • Interactions of Radiation and Tissue
  • Ultrasound — Concepts and Transducers
  • Basic Concepts in Radiography
  • Basic Principles of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance
  • MRI: Image Artifacts
  • MRI: Image Formation
  • PET/PET-CT/Image Quality
  • Radiation Dose and Risk
