Dutch Israeli Mini Symposium on AI and Radiology

On 22 January 2022, the Dutch Israeli Mini Symposium on AI and Radiology takes place! The aim of this symposium is to share knowledge on the state-of-the-art radiology and AI technologies developed in the Netherlands and in Israel. 

Radiology and AI 

Radiology is a vital component of most medical decisions affecting patient care and radiologists work with all clinical specialties. However, with the huge amounts of radiology imaging data, artificial intelligence (AI) can be used to increase quality of image readings and improve efficiency, both for better patient outcomes. Additionally, AI is an important enabler of precision medicine. As more patient data becomes available, we can determine in a more detailed way what information implies certain treatments leading to better patient outcomes. In terms of efficiency, AI can speed up the diagnosis process by automating tasks that are time consuming when performed manually or help the radiologist prioritise urgent cases. Which imaging exams should the radiologist assess first? AI can do a first assessment and move cases up the list if necessary.
