Applications of Artificial Intelligence in CT and MR Imaging. Proudly supported by GE Healthcare.Wednesday 14 July 2021
The webinar is designed to provide insights to applications using Artificial Intelligence (AI) in CT and MR clinical practice.
The most modern model of AI, Deep Learning, utilizes a deep neural network-based recon engine that learns how to differentiate noise from signals to intelligently suppress noise without impacting anatomical and pathological structures. The resulting images, in CT, provide outstanding image quality with a preferred texture for improved reading confidence and with a radiation dose reduction. For MRI it is possible to manipulate the sequence parameters to create an image with higher spatial resolution and shorter imaging times.
In this webinar, recent clinical applications, learnings and best practices of AI including Deep Learning, TrueFidelity™ and AIR™ Recon DL will be presented by renowned radiologists from Australia and New Zealand in CT and MR Imaging.
This session will explore:• AI in MRI and how it assists in spatial resolution increase and image quality aiding Radiology reporting and exam time efficiency. Clinical cases in Body MR imaging. • Multiple AI models in CT including the detection of incidental Prostate tumours and the supreme image quality that TrueFidelity ™ provides across all aspects of CT imaging including Spectral.• Meet the experts online via Q&A.

FROGG Genitourinary Sessions for Radiation Oncology Trainees, supported by Mundipharma (Eligard)Session 3Monday 15 March 2021
RANZCR is excited to announce the third session in our FROGG Webinar Series, in partnership with Mundipharma (Eligard). Registration is free for RANZCR trainees. During the third session, our guest speaker will be Dr Alison Tree, Consultant Clinical Oncologist, The Royal Marsden Hospital. Radiotherapy technology has undergone a revolution over the last decade, with fractionation, dosimetry and image-guidance changing almost beyond recognition. This has enabled us to deliver bold new treatments, develop whole new machines like the MR Linac, and expand the reach of radiotherapy into metastatic disease. But radiotherapy technology is expensive and healthcare budgets are not infinite. Are radiotherapy innovations been driven by evidence and clinical need, or are these innovations driven by what is possible, rather than sensible? Come and join the discussion!
Speakers:Dr Alison Tree
JMIRO - How to be a good reviewerTuesday 16 March 2021
Peer review is designed to assess the validity, quality and often the originality of articles for publication. It is the foundation for safeguarding the quality and integrity of scientific research.Becoming a peer reviewer offers an excellent opportunity to play a role in the research community and gain experience to improve your own writing. This webinar is being convened by members of JMIRO’s Editorial Board, including the Editor in Chief, Professor Michael Barton, and will take you through the essentials of how to be a good reviewer, covering what a good review entails, how not to be “Reviewer 2”, and more. If you are interested in becoming a reviewer, have recently enrolled as a trainee reviewer, or are simply looking for a refresher on peer review, register to attend here.
Speakers:Prof Michael Barton A/Prof Warren ClementsDr Belinda CampbellDr Kellie KnightSimon Goudie
Artificial Intelligence Webinar Tuesday 9 March 2021
Learning Objectives: • To understand the commonly used terms relating to artificial intelligence in radiology. • To gain a deeper insight into the development of AI for the interpretation of chest radiographs. • To develop a greater understanding of the clinical use cases of chest radiograph AI.
Speakers:Dr Luke Oakden-RaynerDr Catherine Jones
New Reality in Cardio-vascular MRI Webinar. Proudly supported by Philips.Wednesday 9 December 2020
This webinar is designed to provide an in-depth view into some modern applications of cardiac and vascular MRI in the clinical practice. Recent developments and already established techniques will be presented by internationally renowned experts. The spectrum of clinical scenarios shared during this webinar will include topics spacing from non-contrast MR vascular imaging, thoracic MRI applications as well as practical tips for congenital heart disease MR imaging in clinical practice.
