February 1, 2019 — The European Society of Radiology (ESR) and GE Healthcare are partnering on artificial intelligence (AI) for the upcoming European Congress of Radiology (ECR), Feb. 27-March 3, 2019 in Vienna, Austria. The partnership includes joint sessions on artificial intelligence and a 300 m² dedicated space on GE Healthcare’s 850 m² booth where visitors can experience the AI transformation through interactive tools.
The average hospital generates 50 petabytes of data annually, including clinical notes, lab tests, medical images, genomics and more, yet less than 3 percent of it is used. AI has the potential to make sense of the data and to generate actionable insights that help improve provider efficiency, increase diagnostic accuracy, personalize treatment, improve patient experience, and enable remote and predictive maintenance. GE Healthcare has 200-plus imaging applications and is working with partners like Nvidia, Microsoft, Amazon and Intel to embed analytics, cloud capability and AI into devices, workflows and technologies already used by healthcare providers today.
