April 13, 2017 — Anne Le Grand, general manager of Watson Health Imaging, will explore the potential of cognitive imaging to aid radiologists in delivering high-quality, patient-centered care as this year’s Radiology Leadership Institute (RLI) Summit keynote speaker. 

Besides cognitive imaging — using computers to develop clinical insights from medical images — Le Grand will also address using augmented intelligence — as opposed to artificial intelligence — as IBM trains Watson to “see” medical images. Her address, "Watson Health: Empowering Heroes, Transforming Health," will be presented Sept. 7. Registration is open for the annual meeting, which will be held Sept. 7–10 at Babson College in Wellesley, Mass.

“Radiology and radiologists lead in the development and implementation of both imaging and minimally invasive procedures, driven not only by technology but also by societal needs,” said Alexander M. Norbash, M.D., FACR, the RLI Summit program chair. “RLI Summit attendees will be able to hear how cognitive imaging and augmented intelligence may make radiologists’ work even more effective, efficient and well-informed when looking at enormous amounts of information pertinent to patients,” he noted. “This keynote will highlight how radiologists are true heroes in the healthcare system and how the appropriate use of empowering technologies will assist them in providing better patient outcomes,” Norbash stated.

With the theme, “Build Your Playbook for Peak Practice Performance,” the RLI Summit offers in-depth, hands-on facilitated breakout sessions to provide maximum interaction between faculty and attendees. The RLI, a program of the American College of Radiology (ACR), delivers progressive leadership and business management training and offers real-world strategies for radiologists to grow and advance in practice.
