WEBINAR: Building the Bridge - How Imaging AI is Delivering Clinical Value Across the Care Continuum

The webinar will be held on August 5 at 2 pm ET / 1 pm CT

Identify key downstream beneficiaries of imaging AI and its potential impact on their clinical practice and outcomes

Imaging AI has come a long way in just a few years. More than 30% of radiologists have adopted AI, citing improved efficiencies and increased quality as primary drivers. Triage apps are prioritizing worklists, and image analysis algorithms are detecting and measuring lesions—but we are just scratching the surface of AI and its impact on patient care. From neurology to women’s health to pulmonology and beyond, the downstream clinical benefits to providers and patients can be profound. To get there we need to focus attention on how AI is being communicated, applied and consumed throughout the care cycle. This webinar will discuss imaging AI across the care continuum, and how these maturing technologies are supporting radiologists and care teams to improve outcomes. We will explore how AI outputs are informing providers and specialists downstream and how they are integrating these insights into their clinical practice.
