QIICR participated in the Crowds Cure Cancer experiment at RSNA 2017.
The experiment pulled together researchers from a number of ITCR funded projects to build and test a system to have expert radiologists at the meeting provide annotation as input for further analysis.
The prototype system is available open source on github. It is a web application that communicates with a lightweight remote application server and database.
Over 250 people participated of whom 112 self-identified as radiologiests. Together they provided over 2000 annotations, with 3 participants providing over 100 annotations each and many others providing more than 20.
A publication describing the work in more detail is planned. For now contact Steve Pieper if you would like additional information.
