Medical Imaging in Tanzania

Muhimbili National Hospital (MNH) in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania serves as the tertiary referral center for a country of over 55 million people and has only 8 staff radiologists for this 1600 bed hospital. Radiology as an independent department is relatively new at MNH and the residency program is only 10 years old. The hospital has modern radiology equipment, highly motivated residents and staff, wide referral base, and a large patient population with complex pathologies, including post renal transplants; one of the last remaining barrier for radiologists is advanced subspecialty training. In the falls of 2018 and 2019, I joined a group of radiologists to teach MNH radiology residents as part of a longitudinal training program to foster skill transfer. In this lecture, I will share the lessons I’ve learned, including 1) the role of radiologists in promoting healthcare access in developing countries 2) common misconceptions about global health radiology 3) ways to contribute and maximize impact and 4) strategies to maintain sustained growth.

Adapting to Succeed in Radiology's Post-Pandemic Future

Radiology’s future will be impacted by uncertainties along a number of axes from reimbursement to potential replacement either by technology or non-physician providers. In this talk Dr. McGinty will explore the way in which radiologists can prepare to adapt and succeed in this dynamic environment.

Breast MRI: Innovative Approaches to Improve Breast Cancer Screening

Results of large screening trials have established breast MRI to be the most sensitive technique for detecting breast cancer. It is currently recommended for screening of women with high lifetime risk (>20%). Future directions in breast MRI aim to increase the accessibility of the examination by reducing costs and eliminating the need for gadolinium contrast agents, as well as to improve accuracy for breast cancer detection and provide advanced biological characterization of disease to aid in tailoring therapies. In this presentation, we will discuss the potential of emerging techniques, including abbreviated and ultrafast breast MRI protocols to increase throughput and reduce overall costs of breast MRI, diffusion-weighted MRI to improve diagnostic accuracy and enable cancer detection without the need for a contrast agent, and machine learning/artificial intelligence approaches to aid in diagnosis and management.

Coals to Newcastle; Experimentation, Design Thinking, and the Translational Future of Radiology

We live in an imperfect world, which we hope and believe is continuously evolving toward perfection. In order to maximize the rate of such progress, it may be beneficial to consider the perspective of experimentalism and to intentionally strengthen and reinforce such a culture. Building a culture of experimentation necessitates broadly cultivating curiosity, guaranteeing data’s primacy over opinion, democratizing experimentation, being ethically aware, and embracing a different leadership model. Similarly, as we consider refining our cultures to more broadly embrace and believe in experimentalism, we can integrate design thinking as a driver for practical innovation. Design thinking demands extraordinary empathy with users, defining users needs while adding your insights, ideating and innovating, prototyping, and committing to testing and learning. Stanford has been a celebrated leader in this work. Effective leadership models are central to succeeding at creating a culture of experimentalism and design thinking. The servant-leader, who sets an example and influences positive behavior with humility and through service, perhaps mobilizes the potential of the group most effectively. Our optimized future may well be realized through experimentalism, design thinking, and servant-leadership.

Promoting Innovation Within Your Team: Lessons Learned From 40 Years In MRI

The creative process has biological origin in the human brain that is shaped by external social and environmental factors. Advances in diagnostic imaging, including MRI, are widely considered some of the most important developments in medicine during the past half century, and will likely continue to have a significant impact on human health. Innovation in MRI through academic-industrial partnerships has accelerated the development of the field, and examination through the lens of magnetic resonance imaging provides remarkable insight into the biological basis and external factors that shape the creative process. Lessons learned from these experiences provide practical guidance to how we can enhance our creativity as individuals and ensure innovation amongst interdisciplinary teams.
