From speech recognition and driver assistance systems in cars to smart chat-bots for helpdesks, artificial intelligence is making its way into countless routine applications. Notably, impressive results have been achieved when AI is used to correctly classify images. Radiologists are engaging in generating a huge volume of images, making it increasingly challenging to meet productivity while maintaining diagnostic accuracy. In medical imaging, the expectation of obtaining accurate diagnosis from detailed anatomical and functional images encourages radiologists to use AI in medical imaging. This helps in better analysis of the study. In addition, use of AI in image analysis helps to accelerate interpretation, improve accuracy, and reduce repetition for radiologists and other specialties.
