SIIM 2018 Recap: Supporting Women in Radiology

SIIM 2018 Recap: Supporting Women in Radiology

Thank you for joining us to show support for Women in Radiology while at SIIM18. We had over 120 people join us for the event hosted by RADxx and Ambra Health.


RADxx Networking Event

Thanks for coming out in full force to our networking event to connect the present and future of RADxx.


The discussion was led by Dr. Amy Kotsenas and Dr. Tessa Cook. The group divided up into tables and each group shared some of the unique struggles they had felt as women in the industry including frequently being the only woman in a meeting, encouraging more young women to enter math and science-based fields, and overall work-life balance.

Following the roundtable session, Dr. Tessa Cook was interviewed by Aunt Minnie.

Watch the full replay below:

Collaboration was a key theme at this year’s show and while collaboration among vendors and technology is critical, there is something to be said for human collaboration as well.

Time and time again, we have seen that when different perspectives come together, ideas are shared that may not have come up previously.

This was the original foundation of #RADxx, a movement started by Ambra Health and Dr. Geraldine McGinty that focuses on networking and mentorship opportunities for leading women in radiology, informatics, and IT management of radiology systems.

We couldn’t continue these initiatives without the support of the community, thank you to all!
