AI is set to be used in NHS hospitals for the first time after health regulator gives the green light for its deployment in radiology departments
Artificial Intelligence in UK hospitals!
Artificial intelligence is now being used by the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) Hospitals to help to assess images obtained from x-rays and scans thereby reducing the reporting time by up to 80 minutes.
How will this change treatment?
Implementing AI, alongside review by a healthcare professional, will save hospitals time and money and potentially allow more patients to be seen more quickly
Will AI replace doctors?
Even though AI technologies will be used during radiology treatments, the AI results will still be edited and reviewed by a trained healthcare professional. By saving time, this may result in lower waiting times for patients to receive scans and get their results.
