Webinar: Artificial Intelligence - A Clinical Perspective [9th March]


Join Dr Catherine Jones, Thoracic Radiologist and Chest Lead at annalise.ai and Dr Luke Oaken-Raynor, Director of Research, Medical Imaging, Royal Adelaide Hospital on Tuesday 9th March as they discuss some of the most pressing considerations surrounding the development of and implementation of medical ai today.


Tuesday 9th March | 6pm AEDT 

In partnership with RANZCR. Register your interest here.

This event is free to attend for both RANZCR members and non-members. Annalise is supporting the cost of this webinar for non-members. 

Presentation overviews

Part 1: AI and the CXR - developing and validating comprehensive AI

Presented by Dr Catherine Jones, annalise.ai 

Rapid advances in artificial intelligence modelling have led to the development of new and exciting AI tools to assist radiologists. Developing a comprehensive chest X-ray diagnostic tool is a complex process, requiring consideration of clinical use cases, workflow integration and hidden stratification. Dr Catherine Jones discusses the process of developing and validating Annalise CXR, the most comprehensive chest X-ray diagnostic support tool available.

Learning objectives:

  1. To understand the commonly used terms relating to artificial intelligence in radiology.
  2. To gain a deeper insight into the development of AI for the interpretation of chest radiographs.
  3. To develop a greater understanding of the clinical use cases of chest radiograph AI.


Part2: The basics of safe medical AI

Presented by Dr Luke Oaken-Rayner, Director of Research, Medical Imaging, Royal Adelaide Hospital, Researcher, Australian Institute for Machine Learning

Medical imaging AI systems are capable of incredible things, but they can also be unreliable, unpredictable, and even dangerous. In this talk, Dr Luke Oakden-Rayner will explain the intuition behind a key concept in medical ai safety, model underspecification, and discuss several approaches that developers can take to mitigate this problem.

Learning objectives:

  1. What is "underspecification" of an artificial intelligence model?
  2. How can underspecification lead to harm?
  3. How can we develop and test artificial intelligence in a way that mitigates the risks of underspecification?
