The Ethics of AI

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is undoubtedly beneficial. It has improved patient outcomes and made radiology more efficient. However, some great challenges remain and researchers believe that AI cannot be trusted completely. Global imaging societies and their representatives are collaborating on a   live document outlining a clear set of AI ethics to be used in radiology. In order to prove the point of ethical guidance about AI, major radiology organizations from America, Canada, and Europe have jointly drafted the Ethics of AI in Radiology for the community. The American College of Radiology published the consensus draft document, which was co-authored by the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM), […]
