Artificial Intelligence for Healthcare

Ali Kamen, Siemens Healthineers
Host: Mathias Unberath

The promise of AI in medical imaging lies not only in higher automation, productivity and standardization, but also in an unprecedented use of quantitative data beyond the limits of human cognition. This will support more accurate and more personalized diagnostics and therapies along multitude of disease pathways. Today, artificial intelligence already plays an important role in the everyday practice of image acquisition, processing and interpretation. In this talk, I provide example clinical applications where AI plays an integral role. These applications range from automated scanning, detection of anatomical structures, intelligent image registration and reformatting to predicting therapy outcome based on multimodal data.
