    What kind of new clinical imaging aspects will improve multi-disciplinary team meetings in the future?


    Efficiency gain without giving up on quality is key during MDTs. AI will suggest a diagnosis and annotate relevant images to present, CDS will recommend treatment based on similar patient data, but might also do this based on other imaging data/diagnosis and liquid biopsies.

    Just like radiologists use imaging hanging protocols today for diagnosis, are there any substantial benefits creating something similar (e.g. AI driven image fusion and data composition) for collaborative care coordination of specific patient pathways?


    Thanks to AI radiologists, pathologists, specialists will become collaborative clinicians working from anywhere. For patient centric personalized pathways, these clinicians will review relevant imaging and clinical data in team discussions. Is there an opportunity to fix these imaging and data elements in predefined layouts and formats?

    What are the biggest challenges for AI in medical imaging to overcome towards integration into the current applications and workflows and how do you expect these to be tackled?


    Most of the AI tools for imaging generate metadata stored into DICOM presentation state files which can be read by any PACS viewer. Is this sufficient? For every speciality a specifc AI tool might provide the best result. How do you see these being integrated into your viewer(s) and workflows?

    1702: Radiomics, Radio-genomics, Pathomics. What are they, how do you validate these tools in a clinical trial and is there a future for these tools in a clinical (as opposed research or single–site) setting? 1739: How can deep-learning techniques be used to improve central radiological review in clinical trials within the next 5 years? 1751: What are the key pointers for a smooth central ARSAC approval process?


    1702: None 1739: 1751: Often ARSAC applications can cause a substantial delay in the start up timelines of a trial. It is therefor in our interest to work with the ARSAC review team to reduce this as much as possible by being proactive and look at the risks prior to application.

    What data set and expertise is necessary to implement a deep learning model on 3D medical images that can perform better than non-deep image processing and classifier methods?


    At Brainomix, we develop neuroimaging software for diagnostic support using artificial intelligence approaches. Deep learning research his very popular but not always necessarily better than a simple k-means clustering algorithm. The reasons and the conditions for deep learning approaches to improve the performance of more classic machine learning techniques are often overlooked. Of a particular interest to us: What are the conditions for the design and training of a powerful deep learning 3D brain imaging diagnostic support tool?

    Is there a role for high throughput imaging in personalised medicine?


    High throughput imaging has the potential to screen putative agents at various doses to find the optimum treatment - is it worthwhile?

  • 1787

    How do we explore interactions of agents to find the optimum therapeutic window?


    Synergistic interactions of drugs may offer increased efficacy, better tolerance and decreased adverse effects. However, the combinatorial effect blows the problem up to an unsolvable scale. How do we move from reductionist 1 dimensional assessments of utility up to poly-agent assessments?
