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.
Resulting Publication: A publication that was eventually made of a project that had previously been presented at an RSNA conference or on a Research Day, or both. These occurred anywhere from the same year of the presentation to many years afterwards.
