Upcoming Webinars

Event 1: Artificial Intelligence - A Clinical Perspective 

Tuesday 9 March, 6pm AEDT


Dr Catherine Jones - “AI and the CXR - developing and validating comprehensive AI”
Rapid advances in artificial intelligence modelling have led to the development of new and exciting AI tools to assist radiologists. Developing a comprehensive chest X-ray diagnostic tool is a complex process, requiring consideration of clinical use cases, workflow integration and hidden stratification. Dr Catherine Jones discusses the process of developing and validating the most comprehensive chest X-ray diagnostic tool available.

Learning Objectives:
1) To understand the commonly used terms relating to artificial intelligence in radiology. 
2) To gain a deeper insight into the development of AI for the interpretation of chest radiographs. 
3) To develop a greater understanding of the clinical use cases of chest radiograph AI.


Dr Luke Oakden-Rayner - “The basics of safe medical AI”
Medical imaging AI systems are capable of incredible things, but they can also be unreliable, unpredictable, and even dangerous. In this talk, Dr Luke Oakden-Rayner will explain the intuition behind a key concept in medical AI safety, model under specification, and discuss several approaches that developers can take to mitigate this problem.

Learning objectives:
1) What is "underspecification" of an AI model?
2) How can underspecification lead to harm?
3) How can we develop and test AI in a way that mitigates the risks of underspecification?

 Event 2: JMIRO - How to be a good reviewer

Tuesday 16 March, 4pm AEDT

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.
