Although intelligent algorithms have been used for some time in segments of medical imaging, new methods of machine learning, based particularly on “deep learning,” are much more powerful. AI-powered algorithms may offer concrete prospects for quantification, standardized imaging, and reporting.
The opportunity AI presents in MI is vast. Robust AI-powered algorithms can be used to drive clinically relevant and actionable information in a way that is quantitative, accurate, and reproducible, outcome-oriented clinical decision-making. Additionally, AI-powered algorithms may increase standardization that provides efficient automation and more operator-independent actions.
Thanks to innovative and forward-thinking technologies already implemented, and the increased computing power now available, we can bring practical AI implementations to both scanners and reading solutions.
