An example of how Agfa is integrating IBM Watson into its radiology workflow. Watson reviewed the X-ray images and the image order and determined the patient had lung cancer and a cardiac history and pulled in the relevant prior exams, sections of the patient history, cardiology and oncology department information. It also pulled in recent lab values, current drugs being taken. This allows for a more complete view of the patient's condition and may aid in diagnosis or determining the next step in care.
