13th March 2018 – Featured in Radiology Business – Artificial intelligence (AI) technologies had a significant presence at the European Society of Radiology’s annual meeting, the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) 2018. According to a new report published by Signify Research, however, the buzz wasn’t as strong as it was at RSNA 2017 in Chicago.

“AI didn’t seem to generate the same buzz and excitement as it did at RSNA”, wrote author Simon Harris. ‚”Perhaps this is a positive sign that AI is now descending the peak of the hype cycle. Or perhaps it’s a sign that European radiologists aren’t yet fully embracing AI?”

Of course, Harris noted, AI is still clearly gaining momentum. An entire area of the floor at ECR 2018, including a mini theater for presentations, was dedicated to AI.
