Radiology Leaders Discuss State of AI in Fall 2018: Minoshima and Pien


By Michael Mozdy

During the 2018 Imaging Elevated: Utah Symposium for Emerging Investigators, I had the chance to sit down with the keynote speaker, Homer Pien, PhD, the Chief Scientific Officer for Philips Healthcare and Satoshi Minoshima, MD, PhD, Professor and Chair of the Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences at the University of Utah. I asked them about the state of artificial intelligence in clinical radiology practice. Here are some snippets from the conversation.
