RSNA is launching a new program that would allow radiologists to pursue certification in artificial intelligence, the society announced Wednesday.
The Imaging AI Certificate program is an online-based curriculum geared toward helping rads incorporate AI into daily practice, with a focus on diagnostic imaging and workflow improvements.
Radiologists can work at their own pace to watch on-demand videos, complete hands-on cases, and learn how algorithms are built and programmed, among other topics.
“The RSNA Imaging AI Certificate will be quite impactful for all radiologists, especially those who want to be more involved with the implementation of AI algorithms in their clinical practices,” Linda Moy, MD, course director and professor of radiology at the NYU Grossman School of Medicine, said in a statement. “The certificate will provide radiologists with an understanding of how to evaluate the usefulness and accuracy of AI algorithms and allow them to develop realistic expectations of how AI software may change their clinical workflow.”
After completing the course, graduates will receive a certificate and RSNA will offer continued options to gain additional training. Enrollment opens this coming fall.
“We are at a pivotal time in the progression of radiology,” said Matthew B. Morgan, MD, course director and associate professor and director of informatics and quality improvement in breast imaging at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. “For the first time, we have AI that can … ‘see’ beyond what we can see to process and recognize patterns in quantitative data that is beyond human ability,” he went on to say. “This is where some of the most exciting advancements may come.”
