Dr. Kottler sat down with Diagnostic Imaging at RSNA 2023 to discuss AI imaging milestones and the potential impact of AI on workflows in radiology.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is of course one of, if not the hottest topic at this year's RSNA annual meeting, but how is all of the hype translating to clinical practice?
As exciting as new technology can be, actually using that technology requires a great deal of effort, especially for larger institutions that are faced with training dozens of radiology staff.
User education is a key component to adoption and uptake, according to Nina Kottler, MD, MS, associate chief medical officer of clinical artificial intelligence at Radiology Partners. Dr. Kottler spoke with Diagnostic Imaging at RSNA 2023, where she reflected on Radiology Partners hitting (and recently surpassing) an impressive milestone: utilizing clinical AI in more than 20 million patient exams. None of that would be possible without purposeful training programs to make sure that radiology end-users are comfortable with the new technology and understand the key benefits of use.
Dr. Kottler, who is also an associate fellow at Stanford University's Center for Artificial Intelligence in Medicine & Imaging (AIMI), also spoke about what she has observed in terms of the affect that AI is having on radiology workflows.
