Gain Access to the Industry Leading Online Diagnostic Decision Support Solution
STATdx, the premier diagnostics software, is only $500 CDN for CAR members. As a key participant in the care of almost every patient and disease category, radiologists work under tremendous pressure to get every diagnosis right, right away. STATdx provides diagnostic decision support to increase speed, accuracy and confidence in diagnosing complex imaging cases. In fact, a recent study found that radiologists using STATdx saw a 19% reduction in diagnostic error compared to those did not use STATdx.
As part of the CAR’s initiatives to ensure radiologists are seen more, heard more and that they are better understood, we have actively engaged with Canadians at large, as well as federal government officials and MPs across Canada. Throughout the summer we have also met with several senior policy staff within government and some of our board members met with their MP within their communities. The CAR facilitated meetings between Dr. Flegg and Dr. Anderson, reaching out to their federal political representatives and had productive discussions about radiologists’ work, their value and the CAR’s priorities over the next few years. This not only raises awareness of the value of radiology but also provides the opportunity to garner support.
As part of our ongoing efforts to help stakeholders better understand the impact that artificial intelligence has on radiology, the CAR developed an infographic, which has been shared on social media and is available on our website.

The maximum capacity for the webinar has been met, but due to overwhelming interest, more webinars on the topic are scheduled for this fall, featuring Dr. An Tang and Dr. Roger Tam, AI subject matter experts and AI Working Group members. Drs. Tang and Tam will walk you through AI development in radiology and provide a thorough overview of machine learning and its implications in Canada.
