AI Challenge Dataset feature

AI Challenges Planned for 2022 and beyond

The Prostate MRI AI Challenge is being planned in partnership with Society for Abdominal Imaging. This challenge will use multi-parametric magnetic resonance imaging  (mpMRI) to develop AI algorithms that detect and classify prostate lesions.

The Spine Challenge series is being planned in partnership with the American Society of Neuroradiology. The initial challenge will use cervical CT to develop models that identify cervical fractures. The subsequent challenge will use lumbar MRI to develop models to classify degenerative disk disease.

The Breast Imaging Challenge series is being planned in partnership with the Royal College of Radiologist (RCR) and University of Nottingham. The initial challenge will use mammography screening images to build models to classify potential breast lesions. The subsequent challenge will focus on classifying lesions found through Digital Breast Tomosynthesis studies.

AI Certificate Program Coming soon feature
 

RSNA Announces New Imaging AI Certificate

To help radiologists understand artificial intelligence (AI) and to adopt it into clinical practice, RSNA has developed its Imaging AI Certificate program to deliver a pathway for radiologists, including those who don’t consider themselves technologically savvy, to understand and learn how to apply AI to their practices.

Launching in 2022, the RSNA Imaging AI Certificate program offers a convenient online curriculum designed to help radiologists understand how to integrate AI into their practice, especially in terms of diagnostic radiology and workflow efficiency.

This radiologist-centered program will incorporate cased-based modules to demonstrate making diagnostic decisions and using AI to help balance workload. Radiologists won’t just “watch” how AI is integrated into a clinical setting. They will practice using AI algorithms in realistic and interactive ways designed to demonstrate how AI is relevant to their current clinical practice.

Following course completion, participants will receive an RSNA Imaging AI Certificate that recognizes their ability to understand AI algorithm development and to illustrate issues with AI algorithms within clinical practice.

RSNA will offer continued education to help participants refresh their skills, including additional coursework and a pathway toward additional certificates.

Visit RSNA.org/AI-Certificate to learn more and follow updates about the program and registration.

RSNA/AAPM Physics Modules Review

RSNA thanks the following institutions whose volunteers dedicated time to assist in updating 10 RSNA/AAPM Physics Modules. The RSNA/AAPM Physics Modules are self-guided online education modules that explore important physics concepts. They are designed to help supplement physics education during radiology residency and assist with continued self-study for radiologists worldwide. On an annual basis a select group of modules undergo peer review to ensure they remain aligned with current best practices and standards.
