Artificial Intelligence: Implications for Advanced Imaging and Precision Medicine

The talk will focus on applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in healthcare. It will highlight how AI drives efficiency and productivity, improves patient experience, contributes to outcomes that matter to patients, and increases the quality of care by expanding precision medicine. We will discuss state-of-the-art and challenges of AI adoption and inclusion in the clinical workflow. We will address scanner and instrument level technologies, workflows covering reading and guidance, and patient-centric clinical decision support, together with advanced concepts such as the Digital Twin.
