Academy/NIST Workshop 2018-03-13T12:00:46+00:00

The Academy for Radiology & Biomedical Imaging Research is hosting a workshop, partnering with the National Institute of Standards and Technology, to collectively address some of the most pressing technological needs within the imaging community.

Wednesday, May 16th and Thursday, May 17th.


(Cost to Register $200.00)


The purpose: Collectively discuss the needs of the future diagnostician – what we have come to refer to as the “Diagnostic Cockpit” (Dx CP) of the future. This workshop will facilitate dialogue among and between industry, imaging research academia, the broader physician community, and federal government agencies whose missions and expertise bear on medical imaging. This is a continuation of the Academy Scientific Symposium held in September 2017.

  • Collaboration that leads to the development of harmonized approaches to diagnostic data
  • Provide guidelines for a standardized data management framework to enable the development of uniform inputs/outputs for diagnostic AI/ML
  • Development of a Dx CP design specification outline to be used by independent efforts beyond this initiative (the goal of this workshop is not to develop the Dx CP, but to collectively understand the guidelines needed by the end.
