Artificial intelligence in clinical imaging: a health system approach has recently been published in Clinical Radiology, Volume 75, Issue 1. Authored by F.J. Gilbert (Department of Radiology, Cambridge), S.W. Smye (NIHR Clinical Research Network, School of Population Sciences and Health Services Research, King’s College, London) and C-B. Schönlieb (Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, Cambridge).
The development and application of artificial intelligence (AI) to radiology requires an approach that encompasses a health system. The UK government and National Health Service (NHS) are creating an ecosystem to facilitate academic/industrial partnerships aimed at accelerating the creation of relevant and robust AI tools, which will improve the development and delivery of healthcare imaging. A series of recent initiatives are described, which will drive the development and adoption of AI in clinical imaging.
