ACR DSI co-sponsoring 2-day workshop focused on AI in medical imaging

The American College of Radiology Data Science Institute (ACR DSI) announced this week that it is co-sponsoring a National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) workshop about artificial intelligence (AI) in medical imaging. RSNA and the Academy of Radiology and Biomedical Research are also sponsoring the event.

The workshop, which is free to attend, is scheduled for Aug. 23 and 24 at the NIH Main Campus in Bethesda, Maryland. Both Bibb Allen, MD, ACR DSI chief medical officer and Keith J. Dreyer, DO, PhD, ACR DSI chief science officer, will be taking part in the two-day event.

“Dr. Dreyer and I are excited to represent the ACR DSI in this much-needed convening of stakeholders,” Allen said in a prepared statement. “By gathering leading experts to discuss gaps in research and data needs for machine learning, we’ll be able to focus our efforts on those areas with the greatest potential to enhance AI in clinical practice.”

“By more closely reviewing the examples of machine learning in the imaging life cycle and discussing implementation challenges for clinical practice, we’ll be better prepared to address the opportunities that AI holds for radiology,” Dreyer said in the same statement.
