Artificial Intelligence (AI) Methods and Applications in Medical Imaging and Nuclear Medicine Webinar Series

Organized by the Physics Instrumentation and Data Sciences Council

In this new 6-session webinar series--organized by the Physics Instrumentation and Data Sciences Council--you’ll develop a profound knowledge and understanding of AI for medical imaging, providing you with both a foundational overview of the basic concepts and methods in AI, and how these methods are increasingly applied in imaging including anatomic radiology and nuclear medicine/molecular imaging—including current challenges, limitations, and ways forward.

Throughout the series, experts will focus on reviewing state-of-the-art applications in several areas (e.g., image segmentation, image classification, predictive modeling, etc.), as well as highlights of various applications in nuclear medicine imaging.

At the completion of the series, your greater comprehension of emerging AI techniques and applications will give you the tools needed to translate these methods to routine clinical imaging, with the potential to significantly improve diagnosis, prognosis and treatment response assessment, and provide you with further stepping stones towards precision medicine.
