Education program

  • The consortium will offer different types of education sessions:
    • Hands-on workshops on different image analysis tools. These are 1 hour sessions, they will be regularly scheduled through the year with offering at Countway Library and at MGH.
    • Half-day sessions dedicated to imaging topics. They will be offered once in Longwood and once at MGH. As the Harvard Catalyst Genetics Program is doing, we will use the CRP support to organize these sessions.
    • During the year we will offer a couple of 1h lectures on various topics. There is already one on quantitative imaging that has been given at the Radiology Grand Rounds at CHB and that will be given again at the joint program in nuclear medicine. Jeff is finishing one on CT risks and is working on getting CME credit for it.

  • The consortium decided to offer 3 half-day sessions between March and June:
    • They will be mostly focused on clinical applications for different modalities and disciplines.
    • After each session we will get an evaluation to learn if people who attended the session were satisfied by the content and what they thought was missing. If there is a need for more basic principles of imaging, we will either introduce them in the current lectures or dedicate new sessions to them.
    • Valerie will work with the CRP at the different institutions to organize the logistics for those half-day sessions. Their feedback will be useful regarding what time during the day is best, what days of the week etc.

  • Calendar:
    • Valerie created a calendar with the main Radiology meetings, the Harvard Radiology CME courses and a couple of other meetings (cardiology, pediatrics etc) so we will not compete with these meetings.
    • Tentative dates for our sessions:
      • March 22-24: Cardiology: (Neil Rofsky (MRI), Todd Perlstein (US) + someone with PET experience (tbd)
      • April 8-9: Imaging risks with an emphasis on pediatrics (MRI, radiation, dosimetry, contrast agents)
      • May 18-26: Image processing, Image guided therapy
