Program Summary

This Expert Forum Symposium features two respected radiologists who share their clinical experience applying advanced artificial intelligence techniques in both MR and CT imaging.

MR and CT imaging are advancing at a rapid rate with new scanner and software technology finding its way into advanced imaging scanners each year. Artificial Intelligence is proving to play a major role in this expansion. In this one-hour accredited CME symposium, Dr. Gold and Dr. Prokop will provide insight into how they are putting new AI tools into everyday practice at their facilities and explain how these tools are providing better patient care and throughput. Following the presentations, the faculty will take question from the audience.
