IBIIS & AIMI Seminar: AI In Clinical Use – Lessons Learned
Jan 19 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm Zoom: https://stanford.zoom.us/j/92632628279?pwd=S3RFdXdEUmEweTNKelhrcmVxQUExdz09

Nina Kottler, MD, MS
Associate Chief Medical Officer, Clinical AI
VP Clinical Operations
Radiology Partners

Abstract:
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).

Bio:
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.

Title: Imaging Analytics for Neuro-Oncology:
Towards Computational Diagnostics

Abstract: Central nervous system (CNS) tumors come with vastly heterogeneous histologic, molecular, and radiographic landscapes, rendering their precise characterization challenging. The rapidly growing fields of biophysical modeling and radiomics have shown promise in better characterizing the molecular, spatial, and temporal heterogeneity of tumors. Integrative analysis of CNS tumors, including clinically acquired multi-parametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI), assists in identifying macroscopic quantifiable tumor patterns of invasion and proliferation, potentially leading to improved (a) detection/segmentation of tumor subregions and (b) computer-aided diagnostic/prognostic/predictive modeling. This talk will touch upon example studies on this space, as well as an overview of the largest to-date real-world federated learning study to detect brain tumor boundaries.

Using AI for Longitudinal Tumor Response Monitoring and AI Guided Cancer Treatments: From Lab to Clinic

Abstract:
Cancer patients are imaged with multiple imaging modalities as part of routine cancer care. However, the rich information available from the images are not fully exploited to better manage patient care through earlier intervention as well as more precise targeted treatments. In this talk, I will present some of the new AI methodologies we have been developing to track tumor response as well as from routinely acquired imaging applied to image-guided radiation treatments using CT/cone-beam CT as well as MRI-guided precision treatments. I will also present some demonstration studies of how AI based automated segmentation and tumor as well as healthy tissue change assessment can be used to early detect treatment toxicities to enable clinicians to better manage cancer care. Finally, I will show how these developed methods have been put to routine clinical care for automating radiotherapy treatment planning at MSK.

Abstract:
Developing and deploying computational tools for neuro-oncology applications includes a sequence of complex steps to identify appropriate images, assess image quality, annotate, process and other prepare and manipulate data for analysis. We have implemented services and tools on the open source XNAT informatics platform to automate much of this workflow to improve both its efficiency and effectiveness. Dr. Marcus will discuss this automated workflow and its implementation in a number of data sets and applications at Washington University.

Title: Missing the (Bench)mark?

Abstract

Machine learning has begun to revolutionize almost all areas of health research. Success stories cover a wide variety of application fields ranging from radiology and gastroenterology all the way to mental health. Strikingly, however, solutions that perform favorably in research generally do not translate well to clinical practice, and little attention is being given to learning from failures. Focusing on biomedical image analysis as a key area of health-related machine learning, this talk will present pitfalls, caveats and recommendations related to machine learning-based biomedical image analysis. As a particular highlight, it will cover yet unpublished work on two key research questions related to biomedical image analysis competitions: 1) How can we best select performance metrics according to the characteristics of the driving biomedical question? And 2) Why is the winner the best? The results have been compiled based on the input of hundreds of image analysis researchers worldwide.

Title: Medical AI Safety – A Clinical Perspective

Abstract:
Medical artificial intelligence is rapidly moving into clinics, particularly in imaging-based specialties such as radiology. This transition is producing many new challenges, as the regulatory environment has struggled to keep up and AI training for healthcare workers is virtually non-existent. Dr. Oakden-Rayner will provide a clinical safety perspective on medical AI, discuss a range of identified risks and potential harms, and discuss possible solutions to mitigate these risks as this exciting field continues to develop.

Bio:
Dr. Lauren Oakden-Rayner (FRANZCR, PhD) is the Director of Research in Medical Imaging at the Royal Adelaide Hospital and is a senior research fellow at the Australian Institute for Machine Learning. Her research explores the safe translation of artificial intelligence technologies into clinical practice, both from a technical and clinical perspective.

Title: Ethical Challenges in the Application of AI to Healthcare

Abstract:
This presentation will focus on three issues. First, applying AI to healthcare requires access to large data sets. Data acquisition and data sharing raises a number of challenging ethical issues, including challenges to traditional understandings of informed consent, and importance of diversity and inclusion in data sources. Second, I will briefly discuss the widely discussed issues around justice and equity raised by AI in healthcare. Finally, I will discuss challenges with ethical oversight and governance, particularly in relation to research development of AI. IRB’s are prohibited from considering downstream social consequences and harms to individuals other than research participants when evaluating the harms and risks of research. This gap needs to be filled, particularly as dual uses of AI models are now recognized as a problem.

Title: Learning to Read X-Ray: Applications to Heart Failure Monitoring

Abstract: We propose and demonstrate a novel approach to training image classification models based on large collections of images with limited labels. We take advantage of availability of radiology reports to construct joint multimodal embedding that serves as a basis for classification. We demonstrate the advantages of this approach in application to assessment of pulmonary edema severity in congestive heart failure that motivated the development of the method.
