Led by Maryellen Giger, PhD, of UChicago, along with leaders from the American College of Radiology (ACR), Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), and American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM), the Medical Imaging and Data Resource Center (MIDRC) will create an open source database with medical images from thousands of COVID-19 patients. Funding is from the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

With better breast imaging, radiologists could find, classify, or rule out cancer sooner—reducing anxiety, medical risk, and costs for millions of patients.
The Graduate Program in Medical Physics at the University of Chicago mourns and condemns another murder of a Black person at the hands of the police. The unjust deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery were the tipping point that demonstrate the urgent need for societal changes after years of innocent Black lives lost, followed by failures to bring offending officers and racist vigilantes to justice.
