ACR Resident and Fellow Journal Club

The RFS facilitates 2 journal clubs, on the topics of Artificial Intelligence and Economics. These journal clubs let trainees interact directly with ACR leaders and gain their unique perspectives on their areas of expertise.

The journal club meets via conference call facilitated by a member of ACR leadership.


Upcoming Events

The next RFS AI Journal Club will take place Wednesday, January 30, 8-9PM EST, with a recap of the RSNA pneumonia challenge hosted on kaggle. This was a controversial topic because of the reports that AI was better than radiologists.

This journal club will have at least 3 participants from the top 10 leaders in this competition - including Ian Pan and Alexandre Cadrin (#1 team), Phillip Cheng (#3) and Felipe Kitamura (#10).

Please review the competition here: Also a recap of the previous discussions around Chexnet would be helpful as you join us on January 30.
