The Society of Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) hosts an annual conference, with this year’s taking place in Austin, Texas. Attending this event was Computational Science and Engineering PhD student Harikrishnan Changarnkothapeecherikkal, who is advised by Dr. Hembroff, the director of the Health Informatics Graduate Program.
Harikrishnan’s presentation, in conjunction with Henry Ford Health, discussed the difficulties in performing manual quality control of MSK radiography and how he, Dr. Hembroff, and the contributing members of Henry Ford Health automated and enhanced the process by utilizing deep learning multi-task techniques.
Harikrishnan reflected afterwards that he had a great experience at the conference, from the networking that he took part in to the feedback that was provided by experts in the field. He remarked that the audience intently listened to his presentation, offering their enthusiasm and participation, something that he was blown away by. However, it is not a surprise that the work piqued the interest of many conference attendees, as his encouraging results reveal the potential for significant improvements in efficiency and accuracy to influence radiology departments and patient care.
The ICC wishes to congratulate Harikrishnan on his hard work and his outstanding presentation and representation of MTU and the ICC at the SIIM ‘23 Conference!
