‘RAD Women’ launch online resource center

Women with an interest in medical imaging informatics have a new online resource center thanks to RADxx, the women’s advancement initiative kicked off at last year’s RSNA by Geraldine McGinty, MD, and Mini Peiris of the healthcare software company Ambra Health.

The new info hub offers helps aimed at promoting learning, networking and career opportunities, while RADxx itself has topped 100 members—men as well as women—according to a press release sent by Ambra, which sponsors the work.

“It’s up to all of us to mentor and sponsor emerging leaders in radiology to close the gender gap within the field,” McGinty says.

The group will hold a reception Thursday at the annual meeting of SIIM in Pittsburgh.
