ACR Data Science Institute Update: What’s Ahead in 2018

The most important activity of the ACR DSI in 2018 will be the development of detailed AI use cases for the radiological sciences.
By Bibb Allen, Jr. | Chief Medical Officer, ACR Data Science Institute | Feb. 8, 2018

Throughout 2018, the ACR DSI will develop a number of educational activities to inform ACR members of key issues in data science. ACR DSI Senior Scientists will contribute articles to the new bimonthly JACR Data Science and Radiological Practice column, with topics including the economics of AI in medical practice, legal and ethical issues around AI in medicine, and government regulatory activities. A number of web-based educational programs are being developed to introduce AI to radiological professionals, detail the implementation of AI, and provide tutorials around the science of AI model creation.
