AI and medical imaging: building a relationship on solid data foundations

The reasons and concerns behind augmenting traditional medical diagnosis using machine learning

Have you ever seen a Computerized Tomography (CT) scanner? If you ever get the chance to look at one closely, you might feel impressed:  it’s a feat of meticulous engineering, capable of simultaneously taking X-rays from hundreds of different angles. You might also feel grateful – it’s one of the most important medical diagnostic advances of the last several decades (with a Nobel Prize behind it). 

The powerful processor inside the CT scanner reconstructs a three-dimensional representation, using image processing techniques that carefully examine the image and identify areas of interest. Medical imaging is perhaps today the most advanced and widely practiced branch of medical diagnosis. It surely is hard to believe that this field emerged from an accidental discovery.  Continue reading here.
