Artificial intelligence means different things to different people. For some, it’s more of a buzzword with some potential down the line, while for others, it’s radically changing the way they do their work right now. For the radiography field, it’s likely a little bit of both. Let’s take a closer look at some of the potential applications for this technology, and how it may benefit your practice now or later.
As a start, one of the major impacts we are likely to see with artificial intelligence is support for diagnosis. There are certain health issues like cardiovascular abnormalities or smaller fractures that can be difficult to detect even to a trained eye. AI enhancements can serve as a second line of defense in terms of ensuring that every issue a patient has is properly captured and cataloged.
AI is also helping in the logistical side of the radiography field as well. By implementing AI workflows into digital radiography, some practices are able to automate some of the more tedious tasks, as well as help further things like speed and imaging quality. Combine these with the natural benefits of digital radiography, and you have a more efficient experience for doctors and patients.
Artificial intelligence is going to have different applications and needs based on where you are as a practice, but it’s always a good idea to know about potential resources that you may be able to use, even if it’s in the near future. This is why it’s a good idea to schedule a consultation with ExamVue to learn more about equipment and software that could implement this great tool.
