Radiography 2020: Patient centred care era artificial intelligence

Virtual event, organised by the Department of Radiography at City, University of London, provides forum to learn about the latest developments in AI and patient centred care in radiography.

by Shamim Quadir (Senior Communications Officer)

On Wednesday 8th July, the British Society of Radiology hosted the virtual, online "Radiography 2020: Patient centred care in the era of artificial intelligence” event, organised by the Department of Radiography at City, University of London.

The event was open to all radiographers with an interest in and expertise of artificial intelligence (AI), including radiographers, clinical practitioners, research collaborators, alumni, current students and academics of City, University of London, with the all-day event being attended by 600 participants from more than 45 countries.

Led by research, policy and practice, the latest developments in AI and patient centred care in radiography were discussed at the event, split between an introductory session, followed by sessions of talks from industry and academia.

The Keynote session: “AI and patient centred care in radiography” was delivered by Dr Rachel Harris, Professional and Education Manager and Research Lead, and Dr Tracy O’Regan, Professional Officer Clinical Imaging and Research, from The Society and College for Radiographers.

Whilst all talks delivered were pre-recorded, a live Q&A session was hosted as a chance for attendees to ask any burning questions. Members of the Department of Radiography were on hand in the morning and afternoon to answer questions offline also.

The talk “Impact of AI on radiography education” delivered by event co-ordinator, Dr Christina Malameteniou, Postgraduate Programme director (taught and research) for Radiography at City, University of London, is still available to watch online:

Reflecting on the event, Dr Malameteniou said:

Artificial intelligence is already here and this event was all about trying to bring the Radiography community together to discuss the most important issues to move this agenda forward. Ethics of AI, patient acceptability, practitioner anxiety and uncertainty for the future, need for clinical validation and for proportional changes to our academic curricula are highlighted as  priorities for a future with AI. Artificial intelligence is one of the key research areas at the Department of Radiography and a new postgraduate module on AI customised for radiographers will run at City, University of London from November 2020.

If you would like to know more about these opportunities for study please contact Dr Christina Malamateniou directly.
