AI theme for CAR 2018

Annual meeting promises deep learning opportunities for delegates

Artificial Intelligence in Radiology-Present and Future is the theme for CAR 2018, or more formally known as the 2018 Annual Scientific Meeting of the Canadian Association of Radiologists (CAR).

Over four days in Montreal, radiologists, residents and industry partners from across North America will share their work, network, and socialize against a backdrop of topics that demonstrate how imaging is harnessing the power of technologies such as deep learning and artificial intelligence.

Friday, April 27 will offer a track fully devoted to the use of AI and deep learning in radiology, with an emphasis on clinical applications. The morning will kick off with a primer on AI and what it means for radiology. In the afternoon, delegates will participate in didactic sessions about how North America's radiologists are applying the technology in their clinical research, and how they stay abreast of the changes in a dynamic field.
