October 14, 2021


AI methodology has improved dramatically over just the past five years. Clinical implementation however has moved much more slowly. In this talk, Dr. Summers will provide an overview of how state-of-the-art AI can help radiologists make more accurate and efficient diagnoses and predictions. Dr. Summers will focus on AI applications in the abdomen, both his area of clinical specialty and a relatively less traveled topic area in AI. Dr. Summers will also cover such important topics as explainability, the role of large data sets, and ethics.
