Artificial intelligence (AI)

Conversations are happening across the globe to discuss how AI could improve healthcare, and the risks and benefits in each scenario. The Royal College of Radiologists is working hard to be the voice of our specialties when it comes to AI in healthcare.

Coming soon: the Artificial Intelligence Registry

Artificial Intelligence (AI) products are developing rapidly in the field of medical imaging and a wave of deployment is expected in the near future.

Deployment of AI apps may take place in a clinical setting either whilst an algorithm is under evaluation or once approved. 

We’re building a registry to allow clinicians and AI companies to come together to share their experiences. Watch this space for updates on how to submit data to the registry and how to use the registry itself, once built.
