NEW! Exclusive Online Conference Coverage

NEW! Exclusive Online Conference Coverage

Imaging Technology News (ITN) is expanding its online conference coverage to help you benefit from information you may normally not have access to. We are debuting this exclusive coverage with the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) annual meeting in June.

On itnonline.com, Contributing Editor Greg Freiherr conducts exclusive interviews with three key opinion leaders: Eliot Siegel, M.D., professor and vice chair of radiology at the University of Maryland; James T. Whitfill, M.D., chief medical officer for Innovation Care Partners, a Clinical Integrated Network in Phoenix; and Kim Garriott, principal consultant at Logicalis. These experts will share their opinions with Freiherr on key issues facing artificial intelligence as it relates to radiology.

The exclusive SIIM channel will also feature educational videos shot at SIIM, and new products and technology being featured. You can look for this exclusive conference coverage with all shows the ITN team covers in 2018.

 

More Accolades

ITN was honored with a pair of National Bronze Azbee Awards for editorial excellence at the 2018 American Society of Business Publication Editors (ASBPE) Azbee Awards of Excellence banquet in Washington, D.C. Both ITN awards were in recognition of the efforts of Contributing Editor Greg Freiherr — in the Regular Column, Contributed category for Freiherr’s monthly column “The Last Read,” and in the Online Video News category for “Technology Report: Enterprise Imaging” from the 2016 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting.

ITN and Freiherr were recognized in April with Regional Gold Azbee Awards in the same categories in the ASBPE Upper Midwest Region. ITN also received three other 2018 Regional Azbee Awards, including:

•    Silver, Enterprise News Story — “Oncology Information Systems Need to Integrate

•    Bronze, Trade Show/Conference Coverage — RSNA 2017

•    Bronze, Single Topic Coverage by a Team — “Comprehensive Coverage of Breast Imaging,” October 2017.

 

The Azbee Awards of Excellence recognize the best editorial, online content and design in business-to-business (B2B) media. According to ASBPE, more than 1,000 entries across 78 categories were submitted for the 2018 Azbee Awards of Excellence. Entries were judged by more than 100 experienced editors and designers in the business-to-business (B2B) space.

Machine Learning IDs Markers to Help Predict Alzheimer's

Neurologists use structural and diffusion magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to identify changes in brain tissue (both gray and white matter) that are characteristic of Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. The MRI images are analyzed using morphometry and tractography techniques, which detect changes in the shape and dimensions of the brain and in the tissue microstructure, respectively. In this example, the images show the normal brain of an elderly patient. Image courtesy of Jiook Cha.
