We are so grateful to the RSNA for providing us the space and opportunity to bring this session to their annual meeting. This session is meant to be educational, fun, and interactive. The goal is to be of value to investigators who would like to learn more about pitching an idea to an academic chair, an industry rep, or a VC. Our panel of experts will utilize a rubric during each of the three presentations. After each presentation there will be 5 minutes of rapid-fire questions and comments from our expert panel.
Session will be featured LIVE on Monday November 30th from 3:30-4:30 CST
You must be registered for the RSNA Virtual Annual Meeting to register and attend this session

F. Edward Boas, MD, PhD Dr. Boas is an Interventional Radiologist at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. He has developed a new type of local immunotherapy, which involves delivering powerful immune stimulants directly into liver metastases, in order to induce a stronger anti-tumor immune response, while avoiding collateral damage to normal cells. Dr. Boas’ therapeutic method delivers immune cells into the liver metastases, training the immune system to recognize and destroy cancer cells throughout the body.
Joe Cavallo, MD, MBA Dr. Cavallo is an Assistant Professor of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at the Yale School of Medicine. His company Illumion is removing the Black Box from Artificial Intelligence in Radiology. With explainability software that can interrogate deep neural networks, Illumion can provide the “why” behind complex diagnostic decisions like cancer. Dr. Cavallo believes these findings will enable radiologists to understand the specific reasoning behind AI predictions and take control of AI as their own tool to provide more accurate and efficient clinical care.
Harrison Kim, MBA, PhD Dr. Kim is an Associate Professor in the Department of Radiology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). He and his team have developed a point-of-care portable perfusion phantom (P4) for standardized and accurate quantification of perfusion MRI. Dr. Kim believes their device could markedly increase the use of perfusion MRI across the globe.
