Imaging Analysis Working Group

The Imaging Analysis Working Group is a group of students, faculty, and staff interested in methodologies pertaining to medical imaging. We are based out of the University of Colorado at the Anschutz Medical Campus, with collaboration from Johns Hopkins University. Our meetings consist of a presentation followed by a discussion. The presentation can be anything related to medical imaging including personal research or a journal club. We also encourage work-in-progress talks. 

If you are interested in joining or presenting to our group, please contact Sarah Ryan at

Meets: Fridays, 11am-12pm
Location: ColoradoSPH Dean's Conference Room, AMC Bldg 500, Third Floor, Room W3166 (unless noted). Our meetings are also streamed online; for the link and access code, contact
