– Introductions.

– “Practical AI in Lung Cancer Screening“: Dr. Ty Vachon, Co-Founder, CEO Oatmeal Health.

In his talk, Dr. Vachon addresses the use of AI in series to prepare for Lung Cancer Screening HEDIS Measures EHR tool to find patients, imaging tool to evaluate and nudging tool to follow up.

– “AI to eliminate chemical contrast agent in imaging“: Dr. Shuo Li, Associate professor at Case Western Reserve University.

 Chemical contrast agent-enhanced imaging plays a critical role in clinical diagnostic imaging. Recently there has been an increasing concern regarding the chemical contrast agent used in the clinic. In this talk, Dr. Li will share his ground-breaking AI contrast-enhanced imaging, which develops state-of-the-art machine-learning techniques to eliminate the need for chemical contrast agents.
