Exploring how artificial intelligence may support human interpretation of medical images

The application of artificial intelligence to our working and personal lives has been forecast for great expansion in 2016. Taking hold of this emerging development, the Royal College of Radiologists (RCR) recently held a forum that brought together clinicians, academics and researchers from the worlds of computer science, mathematics and medicine. The topic was machine learning – that branch of artificial intelligence which focuses on developing computer programmes that can grow and change when exposed to new data without being explicitly programmed.Hosted by RCR President, Dr Giles Maskell, the meeting was called by the RCR because its medical specialties of clinical radiology and clinical oncology are highly technical and rely heavily on digital resources. Radiologists interpret medical images to support the diagnosis of patients with disease and injury, and clinical…
