Application of artificial intelligence to radiology

Authors: Timothy Deyer, Amish Doshi

Abstract

Radiology has undergone two major technological transformations since its inception. First, Ultrasound, MRI and CT radically improved on X-ray for pathology detection. Next, Picture Archive and Computer Systems (PACS) dramatically improved radiologist efficiency and diagnostic accuracy. Radiology is now, again, on the precipice of another radical technological transformation—artificial intelligence (AI).
