Weekend Course

ORGANIZERS: Dwight Nishimura

 
Saturday, 11 May 2019
Room 710A  13:30 - 17:00 Moderators:  Dwight Nishimura

Skill Level: Basic to Intermediate

Session Number: WE-13

Overview
This half-day Educational Course will provide an introduction to statistical methods for imaging studies. The course will focus on concepts of study design and data analysis that are frequently used in imaging studies. Topics to be covered include prospective and retrospective studies, error rates and hypothesis testing, ROC curves, basic sample size calculations, methods for evaluating quantitative imaging biomarkers, and statistical concepts in radiomics analysis. 

Target Audience
Radiologists, scientists, medical physicists, engineers, and clinicians who would like an overview of the foundations of study design and statistical analysis methods focused on imaging tests

Educational Objectives
As a result of attending this course, participants should be able to:
•Describe different study designs
•Apply basic statistical methods for evaluating imaging tests
•Identify the information necessary to perform sample size calculations
•Understand key concepts and biases in radiomics analyses
