Artificial intelligence in clinical imaging: An introduction

      Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become a topic for discussion in various medical domains, especially radiologic image interpretation. The idea of integrating AI within a clinical radiology practice has been met with both excitement and skepticism. By understanding how AI works, and developing an appreciation for both limitations and strengths, radiologists can harness its computational power to streamline workflow and improve patient care.
