EMRAD panellists discuss the impact of AI on staff

East Midlands Imaging Network (EMRAD) hosted its second AI event in May, focusing on the benefits of AI. Panellists and speakers from Radiobotics, East Midlands Academic Health Science Network (EMAHSN) and Innersight highlighted the ways their products and services can transform healthcare. The event was
all about discovery, development, deployment and sustainability of AI.

“It is apparent that AI is changing healthcare as we know it, improving patient experience and care delivery,” state the organisers. “Collectively it is important that we all work together to discover and identify problems that could hinder successful implementation of AI. Successful patient care, delivery and satisfaction is the foundation of any AI project in care.”

While considering AI’s impact on patient care, it is important to consider the effect this has had on staff. According to the event organisers, there have been mixed opinions on job satisfaction and enhancement with AI implementation in the imaging department. “A good example is the detection of insignificant nodules or misidentification of nodules by the AI on chest CTs increasing the cognitive load on the reporter, which may lead to fatigue and loss of confidence in the AI,” they say.

Dr Dheeraj Giri has been appointed deputy medical director artificial intelligence.
