Webinar: Blockchain Explained: What Radiologists Need to Know

March 26 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

"Just over a year ago, in December 2017, bitcoin reached its record high level, and cryptocurrency became a hot topic of conversation. While enthusiasm for bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies has faded since, the distributed ledger technology behind them continues to attract interest from various sectors, including healthcare. That technology is blockchain.

As blockchain technology continues to advance, it will become important for medical imaging professionals to better understand this technology, including its capabilities and limitations. The purpose of this webinar is to provide a simple explanation of blockchain and various terminologies. Afterward, we will explore how this technology can be used in radiology. We will also discuss how blockchain can complement yet another emerging technology: artificial intelligence. Finally, we will review the limitations and challenges of the blockchain."
