Technology and imaging: “Ask not what radiology can do, but what it should do!”

Phillip Koo
January 08, 2018

Each year, over 54,000 people assemble in Chicago on the Sunday following Thanksgiving to attend the Radiological Society of North America Annual Meeting (RSNA), which is consistently one of the largest medical meetings in the world.  The 103rd Annual Meeting recently concluded and was a great chance to reflect on 2017, while taking a peek at 2018 and beyond.  The hot topic this year was artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning.  Though the idea of AI instills fear in many, it is clear that opportunities abound. Beyond any concerns, we must remain focused on how we utilize these technologies to meaningfully improve the delivery of healthcare for an individual as well as a broader population.
