I’m pleased to announce that Dr. Bradley Erickson has graciously agreed to serve as an associate editor for the Journal of Digital Imaging (JDI). Dr. Erickson brings his energy and expertise to the management of some of our most challenging manuscripts. I am very excited to be working with him and am grateful for his help and leadership in both JDI and SIIM.
We can’t publish JDI without our thoughtful and conscientious reviewers. We are always looking for new reviewers so we don’t overburden our current reviewers. But how can you contribute as a great reviewer? I presented some guidelines at the SIIM 2014 Annual Meeting and now the slides are available to you as an online tutorial.
The program at SIIM 2014 is amazing this year. It is hard to decide which of the many interesting and informative sessions to attend. However, on of the highlights of the meeting is and annual membership meeting and Fellow Induction. During the membership meeting, I have the privilege of announcing the JDI awards for the 2013 publication year.
The 5th Annual CIBR Medical Imaging Technology Showcase on Capitol Hill highlights the vision and innovation found in a unique partnership of patient advocacy groups, scientific societies, academic radiology and industry all joining forces to promote and support imaging research. This year’s showcase included ten displays that highlighted commercial and research efforts.
The manuscripts that are frequently downloaded give me a good idea of content preferences for JDI readers and can be calculated far more quickly than an impact factor. In a recent evaluation of what readers have downloaded during the previous 90 days, I found the top five articles.
The editor of JDI is actively pursuing papers in the following areas: enterprise imaging informatics, the IIP in the healthcare enterprise, analytics informatics, productivity and workflow, and harnessing informatics for quality management.
This year’s Imaging Informatics Professional (IIP) Learning Track 1 is focused on the changing role of the IIP. Most of us have honed our skills implementing and/or managing radiology PACS, and know a lot about managing radiology image workflow. As we all know, this is a good skill set that can be leveraged to help advance our careers, given the right opportunity.
