  • National AI Initiative
    National AI Initiative Office launches the AI Researchers Portal that connects AI researchers to Federal resources that can support their research, including data, computing, and testbeds, as well as AI-relevant grant funding programs. It also provides searchable repositories of approximately 140 current Federal grant programs relevant to AI, and around 40 Federally-funded testbed resources, in addition to a wide variety of data and computing resources useful for AI research. This portal is one of many tools and approaches for advancing the Nation’s leadership in AI research and development – the first goal of the National AI Initiative.

  • AAPM Webinars
    • Episode #28 | AAPM Webinar Series on Advances in Medical Physics
      Thoughts on the Implementation of AI in Clinical Practice
      Artificial intelligence (AI) is changing the world and will likely transform healthcare. In the past several years, a lot of research has been done in the field of AI in medicine in general, and also, specifically, in radiation oncology. We have seen a lot of exciting research work published, however, very few of these tools have been used in routine clinical practice. In this talk, I will discuss these challenges and present some thoughts and work on potential solutions.

    • Episode #1 | AAPM Webinar Series on Inertia or Excellence: Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion within AAPM
      EDI in AAPM: Why Should I Care?
      Over the last 2 years, AAPM has ramped up several of our equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) efforts. This webinar will provide a taxonomy and vocabulary for AAPM members who are interested in understanding EDI concepts and desire to be more equitable and inclusive in their daily life and workplace. Also, this webinar will be used to introduce 3 of our new affinity groups, the Black and African American Physicist Subcommittee (SC), the Hispanic and Latin-x Physicist SC and the Sexual and Gender Minority SC.

Corgi Phantom:
The Corgi Phantom is designed to evaluate cone beam CT systems. The modular phantom can be configured for different scan sizes, providing tests for multi-axis high resolution, sensitometry, cone beam artifacts, and uniformity. Additionally, the phantom includes holes for measuring dose.

Liver Phantom:
The Liver Phantom combines the advantages of objective test objects and anthropomorphic elements for evaluation of advanced iterative processing. The phantom includes low contrast test objects designed both for ROC tests along with conventional patterns, metal artifact inserts, and beads for MTF calculations.
