Part 1 | AI in imaging: the hype and the reality | Presented by Dr Sian Philips, Consultant Radiologist, Chair of MISC, Head of Speciality School/ Associate Dean (Radiology), HEIW

  1. To review the role of artificial intelligence and its current applications in the imaging department
  2. To describe current challenges and opportunities in the deployment of artificial intelligence applications.
  3. Explore how radiologists can influence AI deployment in the clinical environment.

Part 2 | AI and the CXR – developing and validating comprehensive AI | Presented by Dr Catherine Jones, Thoracic Radiologist and Chest Lead, 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 the most comprehensive chest X-ray diagnostic 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.
