OAK BROOK, Ill. (June 19, 2018) — The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) will offer the next in its series of regional courses later this year in Paris, France. The RSNA Spotlight Course, Practical Applications of Artificial Intelligence, will be held September 23-24, 2018, at the Espace Saint-Martin, Paris. Registration is now open for the first-of-its-kind artificial intelligence educational experience in Europe.

The course is one of several RSNA education initiatives related to artificial intelligence (AI) in radiology. As the medical use of AI continues to grow at a rapid pace, RSNA is dedicated to supporting the development of this innovative technology and recognizes the value AI brings to all radiology subspecialties. Through the course, radiologists can learn how to apply practical applications in AI to their everyday workflows and processes.

"The interest for such education is global, and RSNA is delighted to be able to help fill this profound need through a Spotlight course in Paris dedicated to artificial intelligence," said Umar Mahmood, M.D., Ph.D., RSNA Board Liaison for International Affairs. "The two-day course, given by experts in the AI and radiology fields, allows attendees to gain a broad perspective from an introduction to advanced topics, developed by a highly trusted source in radiology education."

During the two-day program presented in English, participants will learn about integrating AI with current medical imaging and will examine how AI will impact radiology's future. After completing this course, attendees will have a better understanding of how AI can help, and not replace, human radiologists.

"Artificial intelligence is changing the field of radiology," Dr. Mahmood said, "and we, as radiologists, are all learning how we can improve our roles in patient care, whether that's through image interpretation or workflow management, with help from AI."

Presented under the direction of Safwan Halabi, M.D., from Stanford Children's Health, An Tang, M.D., M.Sc., from the University of Montreal, and Marc Zins, M.D., from Hôpital Paris Saint-Joseph, the course will be taught by renowned leaders in the specialty of radiology.

AI education from RSNA gives radiologists resources for professional success and improved patient care. With expanded programming at RSNA 2018 and a new Radiology journal, Radiology: Artificial Intelligence launching in 2019, RSNA is the recognized leader for radiologists who want to integrate AI with clinical practice.

RSNA is an association of over 54,200 radiologists, radiation oncologists, medical physicists and related scientists promoting excellence in patient care and health care delivery through education, research and technologic innovation. The Society is based in Oak Brook, Ill. (RSNA.org)
