AI in radiology: The main worries 11 Jul 2019

In this webinar video, Dr Nicola Strickland will briefly explore some of the issues that are worrying radiologists about AI.

These include:
  • Is the AI that is being developed really addressing clinically relevant issues? What sort of clinical problems would it be most useful for AI to tackle?
  • There is a risk that financial and workforce pressures will drive the premature introduction of AI into clinical practice. How can radiologists be empowered to assess AI products that they may be asked to start using, to determine for themselves whether they are accurate and safe?
  • What sort of regulation of AI software is currently in place, nationally and internationally, and is this sufficient?
  • Do AI researchers have access to the vast amounts of good quality, standardised, curated, anonymised data that are needed to train, validate and test AI algorithms properly?
