Deep learning tools are being widely described and applied, though usually with poor demonstration of the imaging basis for decision-making. Some published results are already known to be invalid because the AI tool used irrelevant features to make key decisions. Explainable AI can help to avoid such errors.

This AJR Live Webinar will describe the need and methods for understanding and extracting the imaging features utilized by predictive deep learning systems. Critical for gaining confidence in decision-making AI tools, this process also provides important insights into the biology of a disease and its imaging aspects that were previously unappreciated.

Learning Outcomes

After attending this session, participants will be able to:

  • Articulate various extraction components of images used for decision-making.
  • Explain how deep learning methods are not necessarily “black boxes.”

Many reviewers seek assistance on methods for systematically reviewing manuscripts, determining what aspects of manuscripts to which they should pay most attention, and understand ways in which they can provide guidance to authors about how to improve their manuscript. Few venues exist for such reviewer education. This webinar will allow reviewers and authors alike hear the views of accomplished AJR reviewers on these topics.

Learning Outcomes

After attending this session, participants will be able to:

  • Articulate the AJR manuscript review process.
  • Articulate the features that reviewers seek in a high-quality manuscript.
  • Identify errors in manuscript preparation that can lead to a determination that a manuscript is not suitable for publication.
