Dr. Reid Omary is a graduate of Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine he completed his residency with the university of new mexico and the university of virginia where he also completed a postdoctoral research training and received a

master's in epidemiology dr. Omari then trained as a fellow in cardiovascular and interventional radiology at the university of northwestern he currently serves as a professor in the chairman of department chairman of the department of

radiology at Vanderbilt University he's also the director of medical innovators development program in Nashville Tennessee he served on numerous leadership roles with American Cancer Society's American College of Radiology

American Heart Association and a society of interventional radiology please help me in welcoming welcoming him to the podium so thank you i'm actually not going to go to the podium i'm going to be right around here so i can i can try

to be a part of you because i'd like to to lead off by saying we are all in this together as a technologist as interventional radiologist there's any nurses in here that we are one giant team and to really start I'd like to

have this picture how many of you have ever seen this image so so what do you what do you see what do you see in this one black and white photo uncertainty okay anything else shock your yeah I would definitely agree with that any any

other emotion can't any idea what's happening what's that yeah so this is this is amazing this is this is Harold widdle he's a five-year-old boy this was an image for Reader's Digest in 1974 that before the

internet was the equivalent of going viral and it was the first he's got a hearing aid this is the first time that he wore hearing aids it's the first time he heard it sound and the shock the Wonder I show this image because

fundamentally this is why all of us are here we're the reason we are here to treat patients and to give them the lives that they want and it doesn't matter that this is about a hearing aid or a child or an adult it doesn't matter

if the patient is seen at a community hospital we're seeing in an academic hospital the reason why is always the same and i think when we when we look at today's session and we also look at the other session that you have had your

we're all in this together we're all here for the same line here's another

example this is tom tom works at vanderbilt if you walk around the campus at tom you cannot help but see him if you ask Tom what he does what do you do

Tom Tom will say I fight lung cancer what Tom what Tom does how he fights lung cancer is he walks around the campus and if people are smoking he tells them to stop smoking he cordons them up Tom

puts on average how many miles do you think he walks a day around campus five that's a good guess is actually 11 ok tom is as committed as devoted the fighting lung cancer is anybody at Vanderbilt and so when we think of been

research around lung cancer like Thomas as critical as anybody and so it's it's one of these things we research everyone in this room is contributing in one way or another to research and you may not recognize that you may think I'm just

full of it that is just not true I like the concept of me working in a lab with a test tube that that that there's no way that's going to I'm text well I'd like to I'd like to go over some examples that really really explain why

so everyone in this room is involved in patient care and when you are involved in patient care whether you consider it or not you're involved in research because the care that you give ultimately is evaluated through outcomes

when you document she recorded documents if you you when you enter the size of our ambala expiry you think oh I'm just entering something well actually it really matters because when we can follow up registries and we try to look

at outcomes every piece of information that goes in there in that registry is related to what's documented so every step of the process from taking care of patients to documenting is form of research and ultimately you as

the text are the face to by orcs you interact with all of our patients the experience that our patients have in many ways is related to you and take take pride and recognize that we would not be as successful as a specialty

without you and that what you do in one way or another has an impact on our research and so I'm going to ask what

what is innovation we hear this word bandied about commit can anyone give me a take a stab at it it's what you

insight okay what's that improvement good both of those very good innovation is so it's it's all of these innovation is more than just something new it's trying to take an idea or a concept and it's applying it

it's bringing it out the patient and it's trying to scale it and so what we all do everyone in this room is we innovate we take the discovery and we get them out and we apply them to to our patients and so the pipeline of research

is there's several ways of looking at it ok on the on this side might be the basic science or the preclinical this is when you think back to high school and you think back to like oh you know someone mixing chemicals you know or an

Erlenmeyer flask or beaker some of you may look and think back to chemistry lab in high school with either fond memories or like oh that was just so too painful with the basic science this is worth discovery start and this is where our

innovation begin and I think we're going to hear a lot from our other speakers on starting here and then trying to move stuff over to the IRS week and so the foundation the pipeline of our new procedures our new clinical programs

begins with basic science and it's not that the basic science is more or less important anywhere anywhere in this spectrum is in important they all add value and just recognize that what's happening here has

to start here what does Dan do

yeah and six again dance started as an IR tech I used to be at the University of wisconsin-madison and I worked with Dan and Dan Dan was awesome and Dan Hatt was very curious and one thing that

you're going to see from all these pictures is the partnership it's a team sport sedan has worked very closely with Charlie strada Charlie's one of the grandfather's of neuro interventional radiology and seganus pivoted and he's

engaged full time and research spending a lot of time also in the animal lab and so this was a natural extension of his curiosity and that that's like a complete dive deep into working on that left side of the pipeline of Kerry McGee

the Kerry is a band or built and while not in I our shoes a CT tech she made a complete pivot two years ago every single imaging clinical trial that comes through Vanderbilt every single one goes through carry every week she reviews 12

clinical trials that involve imaging and so she works with Rick Abramson who oversees he's our Vice Chair innovation he's one of her body radiologist once again the partnership and so Carrie decided her skills were best suited

towards clinical trials and then i'm

going to give another example josh is josh here anybody does anybody know Josh okay so I've worked with Josh at Northwestern ici josh is here with almond check now with the editor a JV I

are one of the interventional radiologist at Northwestern and Josh's pivot was to industry and he he has been involved with pre-clinical so animal research he also does training and so it's example

where the impact that you can have is as text can be very different and you have many opportunities in addition to what you're doing you might say that oh these are like career pivots that's cool but that's not me what might I do what might

I do to get more involved in my current position and I'm going to give you three potential options so the first is

There is no transcript for this clip.

are interventional radiology everyone here and the more we can recognize that

everyone can contribute to the success of the team this is an example of an ablation we've been do going in mr we got we got everybody from from text to anesthesiology to nursing to researchers and it never would have

been successful if we didn't have the combined expertise of everyone so thank you for your attention today and I really appreciate the opportunity to be here thank you [Applause]
