Breakout Sessions

In keeping with our Workshop structure, we initiate conversations that carry discussions from the presentations into a Breakout process. Often it allows a broader perspective as more and different disciplinary colleagues participate more casually in conversations about given topics.

In the Clinical Breakout, colleagues will discuss a series of questions to distill action plans to advance screening or the screening research progress. A parallel Breakout will convene as well to consider more technical issues involved with computational imaging and the development of AI tools that could help improve the screening process. At the end of the Workshop, the two Breakout groups come together to hear about their respective deliberations with an eye towards converging on action plans to foster progress.


Clinical Breakout Session – Getting Serious About the Public Health Impact of Thoracic CT Imaging

Technical Breakout Session – Harnessing Photon Counting CT and AI
