A usability study to assess the clinical utility of artificial intelligence and explainable artificial intelligence systems on brain tumor classification prediction tasks

Canadian Neurosurgeons, Neurosurgical Residents and Neuroradiologists are invited to participate in a survey study to assess the clinical utility of an AI system for brain glioma grading. If you choose to participate, you will be given 25 MRI cases (30-45mins) from patients with gliomas, and asked to give your prediction on the glioma grade with and without AI assistance.

The survey is being conducted by Mostafa Fatehi (University of Calgary) and Dr. Weina Jin and Dr. Ghassan Hamarneh (Simon Fraser University). Questions:

After completion of the survey, you will be given a $50 gift card from as a token of our appreciation.

International Survey on the Supplementary Motor Area (SMA) Syndrome

The therapeutic management of lesions in the SMA region is not amenable to rigorous randomized clinical trials so we depend on expert opinion and surgical experience to guide the neurosurgical community. As such we would like to gather a qualitative overview of the current international practices concerning SMA surgery. To obtain this goal we constructed a questionnaire in collaboration with various international experts in the field of glioma surgery.

We would like to ask all board certified neurosurgeons, of the major international neurosurgical societies, to take some time to complete the questionnaire as a considerable participation grade will help us to formulate clear conclusions. The first part of the questionnaire will measure the clinical experience of the individual surgeon with glioma surgery in general and SMA surgery in particular. The second part is specifically dedicated to various clinical aspects of SMA surgery.

The completion of the questionnaire will take approximately 10-15 minutes. Questions:
