Build a foundational knowledge of artificial intelligence (AI) and equip yourself with the expertise to effectively implement AI at your practice and create a more productive workplace. This virtual course led by AI experts will help you better understand deep learning and to confidently make decisions around vendor selection.

During this course, participants will attend a live demo, participate in small group discussions and network with peers and presenters. 

Learning objectives

After attending this course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify learning strategies to translate practical theories in artificial intelligence (AI) into clinical practice.
  • Explain the current clinical applications of deep learning in radiology.
  • Consider the pre-implementation and implementation complexities, including ethical, legal and social implications, before adopting AI into a radiology practice.
  • Detail a grounded outlook on the current limitations and future possibilities in radiology AI.
