2023 Radiology Improvement Summit

"Improvement Capability"

Hosted by:

The Stanford Department of Radiology

Thursday February 9th - Friday February 10th

In-Person - Limited Virtual Option


Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that the 8th annual Radiology Improvement Summit will be held at Stanford University on February 9-10, 2023. The meeting will be held live and in-person; we encourage everyone to join us in sunny California, though a limited virtual option will be available for those will be unable to travel.

This year’s theme is “Working Backwards.”  As AI tools are coming available, we are seeing many solutions hitting the market, looking for problems to solve. In improvement, we know that the first step is to first define the need or the problem, and then work “backward” to consider all potential options in order to choose the best solution, applied in the best way. This skill, native to improvement leaders, will become increasingly critical in the coming years as we face an onslaught of AI-enabled software applications and other tools.

As in the past, the meeting will be geared toward physicians as well as administrative, technical, nursing, and other improvement colleagues. Improvement is a team sport, so bring your team!

The program will be a 2-day event on Thursday (8:30 AM - 4:30 PM Pacific Time) and Friday (8:00 AM - 12:00 PM Pacific Time).  We will be working out the program details in the next few weeks, but in the meantime, please mark your calendars. The program contact is Jaime Tran at jjtran@stanford.edu. Please also feel free to visit our website at http://med.stanford.edu/radisummit.html, which will be updated as more information becomes available. 


Thank you all for your undying efforts to improve, to share, and to learn. We hope to see you all on February 9!  

Warm regards,
