The Hope for Medical Imaging Informatics


The RADxx 2020 Awardees share their hopes and insights from what the future of medical imaging informatics might look like.

Radiology is known to be a specialty of innovation – and its arm of medical imaging informatics falls right in line with that description. It is also segment of radiology that has dedicated significant levels of energy to growing its cadre of female providers. Each year, RADxx, an initiative spear-headed by Dr. Geraldine McGinty and Ambra Health that fosters networking and mentoring opportunities for women in radiology, selects four people throughout the industry to highlight the contributions they have made to imaging informatics.

This year, they selected Dr. Cheryl Petersilge, CEO and founder of consulting company Vidagos, as their RADxx Trailblazer, Dr. Carol Wu, a cardiothoracic radiologist, as the RADxx Rising Star, Dr. Ann Scherzinger, a radiology professor from the University of Colorado, as the RADxx Champion, and Dr. Alexander Towbin, chair of radiology informatics at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, as the RADxx Advocate.

Diagnostic Imaging spoke with each awardee about what they envision for the future of medical imaging informatics – not only in relation to the growing number of women in the field, but for the sub-specialty overall. Here are their insights.
