We have a call to action in healthcare – we need to drive value. Artificial intelligence (AI), if deployed correctly, can help accomplish this lofty mission. In this discussion we will review the following lessons learned in deploying radiology AI at scale: 4 unexpected benefits of implementing AI emergent finding triage; the importance of investing in AI radiologist education; how “most” AI needs to be incorporated into the radiologist workflow; why a platform is required to deploy AI at scale and what a modern platform looks like; how to use AI to add value to your data; and, as Dr. Curt Langlotz famously said, why rads (practices) who use AI will replace those who don’t (a depiction of what the role of the radiologist might look like in a tech enabled future).
Dr. Kottler has been a practicing radiologist specializing in emergency imaging for over 16 years. Combining her clinical experience with a graduate degree in applied mathematics, she has been using technological innovation to drive value in radiology. As the first radiologist to join Radiology Partners, Dr. Kottler has held multiple leadership positions within her practice and is currently the associate Chief Medical Officer for Clinical AI. Externally Dr. Kottler serves on multiple committees for the ACR, RSNA, and SIIM. Dr. Kottler is also passionate about promoting diversity and creating a culture of belonging. As such she is a member of the AAWR, is a member of the diversity and inclusion committee at SIIM, serves on the steering committee for RAD=, and leads the education and development division of the Belonging Committee within Radiology Partners.
