Welcome back to the BIR and RCR joint AI Annual conference 2022. We look to build on the success of the previous year's meetings by now looking at AI in practice. We will have presentations of success in real life working with radiology AI as well as the further steps and routes to adoption. Our contributors this year will share their experiences, tips and best practice in the implementation of AI.

The event will be held across two-days with sessions appealing to our multidisciplinary audience.

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.
