May 16, 2024


Join host Chase Hendrickson, MD, from Vanderbilt University Medical Center, as we begin our fifth season of the podcast with a discussion about a recent article in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism with Katie Guttenberg, MD, from UTHealth Houston, and guest expert Odelia B. Cooper, MD, from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. The article featured this month, by Demir et al, was first published online in JCEM in March 2024: “Machine Learning May Be an Alternative to BIPSS in the Differential Diagnosis of ACTH-dependent Cushing Syndrome.”
