On November 17, 2021, Ziwei Liu successfully defended his Master’s Thesis titled, “Radiomics characterization of the rectal environment on MRI after chemoradiation to accurately evaluate pathologic response outcomes in rectal cancer”.

Case Western Reserve-led team to test artificial intelligence medical imaging to determine which rectal cancer patients need surgery—or can avoid it
 

Over the past year and a half, our hospitals, overwhelmed by COVID-19 patients desperate for oxygen, have been debilitated by staff and resource shortages. While many called for vaccines as a hopeful cure-all, some recognized a faster alternative: efficient and deliberate distribution of hospital resources.

“Novel, Robust Radiomic Approaches for Predicting Outcome and Response in Lung Cancers”

On November 19, 2021, Vincent Dong successfully defended his Master’s Thesis titled, “Evaluating the utility of deep learning for predicting therapeutic response for diabetic retinopathy”.

Congratulations to CCIPD’s Executive Director Katherine Gullett for being selected as a Veale Entrepreneurship Fellow.

NANS Lifetime Achievement Award is intended to recognize an individual who has made significant and lasting contributions to the field of neuromodulation over the course of their career. 

Developments in artificial intelligence are opening up new possibilities in radiology. The advancements help doctors conduct more accurate diagnoses and predict patient outcomes. 

Machine-learning algorithms can guide humans toward new experiments and theories
