NCIMI at RSNA
NCIMI and several of our partners including GEHC, Mirada Medical and Perspectum Diagnostics headed to Chicago in December for RSNA – the Radiological Society of North America annual conference.
It was a great chance to reconnect within international colleagues and hear more about the latest developments, in what was a surprisingly mild Chicago December.
There, we presented a GE Healthcare white paper – Integrating Artificial Intelligence into Healthcare. This highlighted two of our exemplar projects: Use of AI to improve oncology PET/CT clinical workflow and productivity, and use of algorithms in the critical care suite to identify critical findings on chest X-rays.
Claire said: "We were delighted to talk about the power of collaboration and partnership, and how we are keeping patients at the heart of everything we do.
"This white paper with GE highlights our commitment to working together. It was a chance to share the early impact of our work on a global stage, whilst also growing our network of contacts."
Claire also spoke at GE Digital's Connect event alongside ACR Chair Geraldine McGinty to discuss the future of AI in Radiology, and our model of collaboration in NCIMI and the potential to support untapped areas of need such as endometriosis.

The week also saw Claire, Fergus and Mike Brady attend the official launch event for the report from MIT Technology Review: The AI effect – How artificial intelligence is making health care more human. You can read more about the report, which includes discussion with Mike and findings of research amongst 900 healthcare professionals about their experience with AI, here.
Claire also joined an internal panel discussion for GE, hosted by with GE's Chief Medical Officer, Mathias Goyen to discuss the future of radiology with the incoming chair of the European Society of Radiology.
It was also a chance to tour the AI Showcase stands including those of our SME partners and GE’s technology stands, as well as making new connections for potential collaboration and to see the latest advances we can integrate into NCIMI.
Following this, we are hosting GE international Digital Leadership team this coming month on 28th January, to discuss what new technology we can bring to NCIMI to support our partners in new algorithm development and deployment.
