ACR Shares AI-LAB Platform to Speed AI-Powered Eye Care

The American College of Radiology® Data Science Institute® (ACR DSI) and the American Academy of Ophthalmology have announced a collaboration that will expand ACR DSI’s groundbreaking AI-LAB™ platform to include ophthalmic imaging. This initial collaboration building upon the successful AI-LAB platform is a natural expansion because modern ophthalmology practices produce the large quantity of images needed for artificial intelligence training. More information about the collaboration is in the joint ACR/AAO press release.

ACR DSI Links Use Cases to Datasets to Speed AI Development

The American College of Radiology® (ACR®) Data Science Institute® (DSI) and the Cancer Imaging Archive (TCIA), funded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), have teamed to connect use cases and datasets to speed medical imaging artificial intelligence (AI) development. TCIA datasets have been matched to ACR DSI cancer and non-cancer use cases based upon attributes such as body area, modality, and presence of secondary comorbidities. TCIA data are available under Creative Commons Attribution Licenses, and most are freely available for commercial use for machine learning purposes.

ACR Informatics Fellowship Accepting 2021 Applications

The ACR Informatics Fellowship provides a radiology resident or early-career professional with hands-on experience in the field of informatics, including one-on-one mentoring. The fellow will be introduced to initiatives of the Data Science Institute®, ACR's AI-LAB™, and other ACR Informatics projects as part of a three-part program.

All applications will be reviewed by the Informatics Fellowship Review Committee. Candidates will be notified by email of the decision by early May, and an announcement will be made at the 2021 ACR Annual Meeting. Applicants for the Informatics Fellowship must be eligible for ACR Membership. Information on membership categories and eligibility for membership is available on the ACR website.

Apply today! Applications for the 2021 Informatics Fellowship will be accepted from February 1 - March 31, 2021.
