WEBINAR: Applying Advanced Workflow and AI in Today's Reading Room

This webinar is supported by an educational grant from Philips Healthcare


Technology may be threatening the very practice of radiology. Those who have built a career in the space have a passion for what they do, but are concerned with how technology may impact their space.

Radiologists are not averse to change and innovation — in fact, they believe that innovation can serve them, and the patients they care for, very well. Any technology or innovation that enables better patient care should be seriously considered.

In this webinar, we will be sharing our experience and achievements in deploying the latest technology and innovation in the areas of advanced workflow orchestration and artificial intelligence (AI) in radiology at the University of Utah.

This webinar takes place at 2 p.m. Eastern, Nov. 1, 2018.
