When we gathered five years ago, at the annual RSNA conference in November 2016 to kick off RADxx, we could only hope that our initiative would make the kind of impact that we aspired to.

In fact, only about a quarter of active radiologists in the country are women, according to a 2016 Association of American Medical Colleges report.
