The 2nd Bergen workshop of the Global ECT-MRI Collaboration – September 17-18, 2018

The 2nd Bergen workshop of the Global ECT-MRI Collaboration – September 17-18, 2018

The workshop was held in Bikuben (Haukeland University Hospital), where 35 representatives from 21 different research groups in 9 countries participated. Updates on ongoing GEMRIC projects were discussed and 10 new analyses approved. While most of the focus was on the imaging and clinical data, blood biomarkers and plans for future funding were important parts of the agenda. The immediate action plan after the meeting includes:

  1. Providing recommendations for future data collection (imaging and clinical/neuropsychological assessments).
  2. Exploring funding options; COST, NRC, and more.
  3. Extending GEMRIC to include up to 2000 participants and perform research for 15 years in order to better understand the biological underpinnings of ECT and treatment response.
  4. Updating the common server with new software for hypothesis testing and statistical analyses, RedCap (clinical data) and a Wiki for information on projects, pipelines and analyses.

The machine learning seminar series: A mini-conference on machine learning @ Department of Radiology

Progress in Radiology 2018

Progress in Radiology 2018

From tomorrow on, Progress in Radiology, the 12th Symposium of the Japanese Scandinavian Radiological Society (JSRS) & the 15th Nordic Japan PACS Symposium will start. Progress in Radiology 2018 is organised in collaboration with The Norwegian Radiological Society, Haukeland University Hospital and the University of Bergen. This conference aims to promote the exchange of scientifically based radiological skills and to build professional networks between Scandinavian and Japanese radiologists. The organising committee endeavours to host “Progress in Radiology 2018” in a similar successful manner as JSRS’s previous symposiums in Japan in 2016 (with Prof. Yamada as President) and in Finland in 2014 (with Prof. Aronen as President) as well as the many preceding meetings. The symposium will, similar to previous years, cover topics ranging from oncologic imaging, cardiovascular imaging, interventional radiology, breast imaging, nuclear medicine and molecular imaging to PACS related topics.
