Nvidia and King College London have developed a new AI platform that seeks to automate radiology assessments across the NHS.
The platform is set to recognise patterns in medical scans that will assist doctors to be able to diagnose medical conditions more quickly and free up medical staff from taking on this repetitive task. If successful, the platform could transform 12 further clinical pathways in oncology, cardiology and neurology.
“Radiology platform to be built buy Nvidia and Kings College London“
Kings College will combine Nvidia’s DGX-2 systems, 2 petaflop supercomputers, and their Clara AI tool kit with the college’s in house imaging system NiftyNet, along with imaging technologies from partners. Researchers and engineers from both teams will join together with clinicians from major London Hospitals to create the platform.
“This marks a significant chapter in the future of AI tools and how they will benefit patients and the healthcare system.” said Professor Sebastien Ourselin, head of the School of Biomedical Engineering & Imaging Sciences at King’s College London. “Nvidia’s DGX-“ AI System will make it possible for us to speed up training of large 3D datasets whilst keeping it secure on hospital premises.”
