A New Look to Kick Off Spring

ITN debuts redesign in May issue

You may have noticed a few changes when this issue of ITN arrived in your mail! This issue debuts our new look, which was designed to help make its content easier to read, more streamlined and more visually appealing. Please share your thoughts with us!

 

Artificial Intelligence and Radiology

Bundled with this issue is a special supplement on artificial intelligence (AI), sponsored by Philips Healthcare. This supplement, written by industry consultant Greg Freiherr, will take a close look at three key components of AI:

•    How To Make Artificial Intelligence Work For Radiology — The future of AI in healthcare depends on people being an integral part of the process.

•    What AI Will Look Like In Medical Imaging — AI will likely reshape the  practice of radiology one task at a time.

•    How To Keep AI From Failing ... Again — Expectations must be kept in line and produce tangible and measurable results in order for physicians to make
    better decisions faster.
