The RADxx awards recognize the achievements of women in the field of medical imaging informatics, as well as anyone— both men and women— who have helped and supported women in medical imaging informatics.

Are you, or someone you know, a Trailblazer, Advocate or Rising Star in the field of medical imaging informatics? If so, we want to hear from you! Nominate a worthy individual today.

The inaugural RADxx awards will honor three outstanding individuals who have helped to lead the way, or are emerging fresh voices, in imaging informatics. These individuals could be physicians, or work in the field in other roles such as administration or IT. They will have actively helped raise awareness for medical imaging informatics— one of the fastest growing disciplines within healthcare as new technology and increased amounts of patient data converge.


Those interested in applying may do so from now until Friday, November 10. Requirements for the Trailblazer, Advocate and Rising Star award categories are outlined below. The award winners will be selected by the RADxx executive committee from eligible submissions. The award recipients will be announced at a reception— Cocktails for Change— during the RSNA Annual Conference on Tuesday, November 28 2017 in Chicago, IL.   RSVP to attend Cocktails for Change and join a growing community of your peers in imaging informatics!
