Module 5 - Applications of AI



Module 5 reviews applications of AI-assisted image interpretation technologies in radiology,  neuroradiology,  and nuclear medicine. In order to integrate AI in the clinical workflow for improved efficacy, participants will be able to select and benchmark the required hard- and software for AI.

Learning objectives

In Applications of AI participants learn the quality criteria to select AI-suppor-ted image interpretation technology in domains of general radiology & their sub-specialties, neuroradiology & nuclear medicine, get to know the types of AI-supported image interpretation technology and implementation requirements and the integration into clinically approved workflows and efficacy and revenue policies

Learning content

In this module, you receive a general overview of healthcare techno-logy with emphasis on imaging and the legal requirements and safety aspects for clinical use of AI technology in Europe.
It also covers the interpretation and auditability of AI technologies in medical imaging, AI solutions for clinical use, regulations for medical products: “software”, cross-domain AI solution, benchmarking in clinical practice and emerging fields for AI supported decision making in Nuclear Medicine
