This interview with Maryellen Giger, PhD, delves into the creation of the MIDRC imaging repository, how its data can be used to develop and evaluate AI algorithms, ways that bias can be introduced—and potentially mitigated—in medical imaging models, and what the future may hold.

A volunteer study participant applies an ultrasound probe to their abdomen.
One day, the ultrasound equipment that health care professionals use for essential diagnostic imaging may no longer be confined to the clinic, instead operated by patients in the comfort of their homes. New research marks a major step toward that future.

An artificial intelligence computer program that processes magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can accurately identify changes in brain structure that result from repeated head injury, a new study in student athletes shows. These variations have not been captured by other traditional medical images such as computerized tomography (CT) scans. The new technology, researchers say, may help design new diagnostic tools to better understand subtle brain injuries that accumulate over time.

An image of a thyroid tumor, produced by high-definition microvasculature imaging, shows the tumor's microvasculature in high detail.
Researchers have shown that an automated cancer diagnostic method, which pairs cutting-edge ultrasound techniques with artificial intelligence, can accurately diagnose thyroid cancer, of which there are more than 40,000 new cases every year.

New research has demonstrated that a wearable brain scanner can measure brain function whilst people are standing and walking around. This breakthrough could help better understand and diagnose a range of neurological problems that affect movement, including Parkinson's Disease, stroke and concussion.

NIH’s Chief Officer for Scientific Workforce Diversity (COSWD) will moderate a 90-minute event featuring panelists who will discuss the importance of theoretical models and building an inclusive environment through mentorship. Dr. Karen Salt, Deputy Director for Research Culture and Environment within UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), will join the discussion to share insights from her work advancing equality, diversity, and inclusion in research careers.

The Interagency Modeling and Analysis Group (IMAG) organizes this consortium meeting annually to discuss important and focused issues concerning multiscale modeling (MSM) with the goals: to stimulate new Consortium activity and create a collaborative discussion environment for all participants of the MSM Consortium as well as non-MSM attendees from the research community. In this 2-day meeting, the first day would focus on “Evolution and Success of the IMAG/MSM,” what IMAG/MSM has accomplished in its 20-year history and what lessons can be gleaned from them, and would also feature an Early-career Investigator Forum. The second day would focus on “The Future of Multi-Scale Modeling,” including how to increase justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI), synergize with other major initiatives, and how to grow the field of MSM in general. Early-career investigators will be an important aspect of both days as they will serve as bridges between the past, present, and future. The meeting will feature multiple speakers, including original awardees of the Consortium, and include scientific sessions, panel discussions, and small working group activities to grow and enhance the community of multiscale modelers.
