Artificial intelligence in radiology 2020

23rd - 24th January 2020   (GMT+01:00) Europe/London

CPD: 6 points per day

After the success of the last two Artificial intelligence events in 2018 and 2019, jointly organised by The British Institute of Radiology and The Royal College of Radiologists, we are back again in 2020. This time it will be even bigger and better with a new format!

This year’s event will be held across two-days with sessions appealing to our multidisciplinary audience.

Day one will cover talks on AI from a global perspective and the progressive work in this field being undertaken across continents. This will be followed by a session on AI in oncology in the afternoon, with eminent speakers in this field led by Royal Marsden Hospital.

Day two will cover clinical research-based talks being undertaken across the country to aid the healthcare industry with enhancing patient care / pathways and cutting-edge technology.

Throughout the two days, there will be proffered oral presentations showcasing research projects at various stages of development and also industry sponsored talks discussing their pioneering work.

We invite all radiologists (consultants and trainees), radiographers, physicists, oncologists as well as other healthcare professionals and those with an interest in AI to join us at this exciting event.
