This virtual study day will provide an update within the field of lung cancer imaging, give an insight into all round elements of imaging in lungs and what may be the new norm after the COVID-19 pandemic.
Who should watch: A multidisciplinary audience consisting of radiologists, radiographers, advance practice providers, oncologists and pathologists.
• To disseminate information on the general principles of lung cancer imaging
• To explore whether current imaging techniques, approaches and interpretation need to be modified

Mr Jeroen Van Duffelen
Jeroen is COO and co-founder of Aidence. Jeroen's entrepreneurial spirit led him to teach himself software engineering and starting his own company commercializing an online education platform. He then tried his hand in the US startup ecosystem where he joined a rapidly scaling cloud company. Jeroen returned to Amsterdam where he ran a high-tech incubator for academic research institutes, it is here Jeroen first got his taste for applying AI to healthcare. Why Jeroen is excited about applying AI to the healthcare industry: “There have been many claims about technologies reducing the cost of healthcare. I believe AI is the first one that will actually be able to do this, through automating labor-intensive tasks.” Jeroen's vision Aidence & Veye Chest: “Aidence will develop an AI suite that will fully automate the basic & tedious tasks that radiologists have to perform on a daily basis, allowing them to focus on the most important and difficult tasks.”
