VIU to collaborate on €3 million AI-radiologist integration project
The collaboration will investigate how to optimize the integration of radiologists and AI for mammography
Miguel Eckstein has entered the VIU into an exciting collaboration with top academics and scientific industries from the Netherlands to improve the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) and radiologists for optimization of diagnostic performance and medical outcomes in cancer screening. The €3 million Accurate and Intelligent Reading for EArlier breast cancer Detection (aiREAD) project will use AI and other new methods of image analysis to improve how radiologists read breast cancer screening mammograms. Optimal reading of the screening mammograms will result in earlier detection of breast cancer, fewer healthy women recalled due to false alarms, and savings in the costs of healthcare. The project is funded and organized by the Dutch Research Council (NWO) and the Dutch Cancer Society (KWF).
