ONLINE Practical Deep Learning for Radiologists Fellowship

19 - 21 Sep 2022

100% Online

Level II - General radiologist

9 EACCME CME Credits

In this short online fellowship, you will acquire knowledge about how a convolutional neural network works, being able to experiment in real time with the main parameters that influence its training. We will also cover the main limitations of Deep Learning in the field of medical imaging and discuss basic notions and resources to start experimenting with Deep Learning algorithms in daily practice. Each day, a series of selected topics will be presented, followed by a guided interactive activity

Description

The upsurge of Machine Learning and Deep Learning algorithms paired with the high amount of digital data generated in radiology is changing this medical specialty. Deep Learning algorithms, in particular convolutional networks, are promising techniques for processing medical imaging data in a wide variety of clinical scenarios.

During the first session, a brief introduction to the typical concepts of artificial intelligence will be given. We will then focus on data acquisition and manipulation in order to optimize for a Deep Learning task, what the main hindrances are and how to solve them, followed by an introduction to the basic bits and pieces needed in order to initialize a Neural Network.

The second session will cover a hands-on neural network training pipeline in which we will tweak the different pulls and levers and play with the network in order to understand how this influences the final results. We will end the session with two less technical lectures that will focus on the basic requirements and tools needed for DL in the radiology setting as well as tips and advice on how to start the DL journey in your own department.

The last session will be dedicated to model evaluation, how are the main metrics useful in different case scenarios, and their limitations in a “real-life” clinical setting. We will also discuss the ethical and professional implications of AI in the daily clinical practices as well as review and work on the guidelines for critical assessment of AI research.

Throughout the course we will also see other applications of DL in the healthcare setting, such as study protocolization, structured reporting and communication of incidental findings, among others.

TMC Academy fellowships are held in a virtual classroom environment on Zoom. Participants are encouraged to engage in discussions making use of their camera and microphone in order to recreate the face-to-face experience.

Online sessions are recorded so that participants can review on their own time following the training.

In this small group environment among your peers, you are free to ask questions, make mistakes, and learn together with the support of the radiologist mentor.

This fellowship is organised by TMC Academy, an EACCME Trusted Provider.


Testimonials:

"AI is developing fast in Radiology. The course allows me to understand the development process of DNN and its validity. Practical sessions stressing the importance of different parameters and hyperparameters, as well as the prevalence of pathology.”
Dr. Kenneth Kwok-Pan, Monash Health, Australia (Fellow, Jun 2021)

"Thanks to this dynamic and interactive workshop with TMC Academy, I am now able to recognise well-written AI manuscripts.”
Dr. Julia Carmona-Bozo, Department of Radiology/ University of Cambridge, UK (Fellow, Jun 2021)
