Will radiologists eventually be replaced by artificial intelligence?
Call it artificial intelligence. Deep learning. Computer cognition. Whatever its name, it’s the same thing – machines recognizing clinical problems in digital images ahead of the radiologists charged with making the diagnosis.
The artificial intelligence (AI) trend is new, but it’s gaining ground quickly, according to industry experts. The advent of these technologies and radiology’s growing interest in and dependence on them has been discussed at national and international meetings, including the RSNA, HIMSS, and SIIM annual meetings, during the past year. But, there’s still a long way to go.
