RADxx Launches Inaugural Awards Program to Recognize Outstanding Leadership in Medical Imaging Informatics

NEW YORK, Oct. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- RAD Women (#RADxx), a networking group for the advancement of women in imaging informatics, today announced the launch of the inaugural RADxx Awards. The RADxx awards will recognize the achievements of women in the field of medical imaging informatics, as well as anyone— both men and women— who have supported the career advancement of women in medical imaging informatics. Informatics is a fast growing discipline within healthcare as new technology and increased amounts of patient data converge. Applying that practice to medical imaging requires additional expertise that bridges the gap between patient care, physician workflow, imaging operations and technology solutions.

The RADxx Awards will honor three outstanding individuals who have helped to lead the way, or are emerging fresh voices, in medical imaging informatics. The categories include:

  • RADxx Trailblazer: Recognizes a pioneering woman leader in informatics who has been in the field for at least 10 years.
  • RADxx Advocate: Open to both men and women who have helped support and further the advancement of women in imaging informatics.
  • RADxx Rising Star: Recognizes the next generation of women leaders in imaging informatics.

Those interested in applying may do so from now until Friday, November 10 at http://radxx.ambrahealth.com/awards. Eligible individuals could be physicians, or work in the field in other roles such as administration or IT.

Award winners will be selected by the RADxx executive committee from eligible submissions. RADxx Awards recipients will be announced at a cocktail reception during the RSNA annual conference in Chicago, IL on Tuesday, November 28.

"Imaging IT experts will be the future leaders of a rapidly growing field as new technology, growing volumes of patient data, and more empowered patients force innovation. We are pleased to shine the spotlight on outstanding women in this emerging field through the RADxx awards to foster more mentorship and career opportunities," said Mini Peiris, Chief Marketing Officer of Ambra Health and Co-Founder of RADxx.

RADxx is an initiative sponsored by Ambra Health and founded in 2016 by industry leaders Dr. Geraldine McGinty (@DrGMcGinty) and Mini Peiris (@Mini_Peiris) to foster networking and mentorship opportunities for women leaders in radiology, informatics and IT management of imaging systems. With over 100 women and men in the group, RADxx seeks to address the underrepresentation of women in imaging informatics. The founding team has expanded into a steering committee for the initiative that includes leading practitioners, Dr. Amy Kotsenas (@AmyKotsenas) and Dr. Tessa Cook (@asset25).
