Imaging Network Ontario is an initiative created in response to a request by the Ontario Research Development Challenge Fund for assistance in harmonizing its investments in imaging research. The establishment of the Imaging Network Ontario provides a means of harnessing and focusing the intellectual and innovative capabilities at Ontario universities in partnerships with emerging and established medical imaging companies to create a strong and sustainable internationally competitive imaging industry based on scientific excellence in Ontario.
The Imaging Network Ontario (ImNO) hosts an annual symposium that promotes collaborations, broadcasts career opportunities, informs trainees on diverse imaging applications and fosters a greater understanding of the commercialization process.
The symposium features world-renowned keynote speakers and sessions that bring together our trainees with imaging scientists, clinicians and patient groups, and industry representatives. Our last symposium featured 2 technical keynote presentations, 2 special focused sessions on Introduction to Patient Partnerships and on Medical Imaging in Global Health: Challenges and Opportunities for Collaboration. We also had 400 participants and showcased 143 trainee presentations in either 10-minutes oral presentations and 3-minute pitch presentations. Our first educational outreach challenge was great success.
Our 21th symposium will be on March 23 - 24, 2023 in London, Ontario. Stay tuned for details!
