Statistics on the Academic Productivity of Past Fellows

The following graphs assess the productivity of Sick Kids Fellows in Diagnostic Imaging during the years 2000-2007. 

Terms and criteria used in the compilation of statistics:

By Class: “Class” is a group of Fellows all hired in the same year, regardless of the length of their term. 

By Year: All presentations and publications which were given in a particular year, or which Fellows were active. 

Cap: Cap refers to how long a particular Fellow was tracked after his initial term ended. Fellows are tracked for two years after the completion of their term. 

Publications: Publications were only counted if they were made in Toronto, from an institution inside the University Health Network.

RSNA: All RSNA presentations occurring during an individual’s term were counted towards the totals.

Research Day: All Research Day presentations occurring during an individual’s term were counted towards the totals.
