Type: Clinical pre-meeting course
Name: Artificial intelligence for clinicians
Date: Friday 27 August 2021
Course directors: M. Dahele (NL), E. Sterpin (BE)
Artificial intelligence (AI) is predicted to revolutionize many sectors, including healthcare. The aim of this one-day course is to provide a state-of-the-art, critical, overview of (selected) AI-related developments in radiotherapy.
- Describe the fundamentals of AI-related software
- Critically evaluate AI-based automatic clinical workflows
- Discuss the potential of AI and Big data to influence the discovering of new clinical paradigms
- Help those attending to identify how AI may present opportunities to advance their own research and clinical interests
- Increase awareness of the social dimension of AI and automation, including how they might affect jobs
Who should attend?
AI is likely to touch the whole of radiotherapy, from specific tasks like segmentation and treatment planning, to workflows like adaptive radiotherapy, to treatment selection and patient outcomes. Therefore, in addition to physicists, we anticipate that it will also appeal to interested technologists and clinicians.
