Resources for the Advancement of Women in Medical Imaging Informatics

Takeaways from the 2017 ACR Commission on Human Resources Workforce Survey

One of the key takeaways of the 2017 ACR Commission on Human Resource Survey was that gender distribution remains the same; the radiology field is still primarily male. However, the divide is a bit less in younger age groups. And most importantly, only 13% of practice leaders are female. How can we encourage more women […]

Survey: Rad residency programs must sharpen efforts to draw women, engage med students

When it comes to radiology, both men and women in medical school are more likely to pursue a field they have had positive exposure to. However, women frequently rank radiology less positively than men. How can we change this perception?

Machine Learning Course 2

This online course from Stanford University provides a broad introduction to machine learning, datamining, and statistical pattern recognition. Topics include: (i) Supervised learning (parametric/non-parametric algorithms, support vector machines, kernels, neural networks). (ii) Unsupervised learning (clustering, dimensionality reduction, recommender systems, deep learning). (iii) Best practices in machine learning (bias/variance theory; innovation process in machine learning and AI). The course will also draw from numerous case studies and applications, so that you'll also learn how to apply learning algorithms to building smart robots (perception, control), text understanding (web search, anti-spam), computer vision, medical informatics, audio, database mining, and other areas.
