IN THIS EPISODE:
[01:59] The current state of radiology [07:16] How subspecialization has evolved as a result of technological advancement, which has resulted in increased workload [12:06] Allocation and workflow orchestration [21:32] Sharing information with other interfaces and third-party apps [24:00] The impact on software being customized and personalized as opposed to having to adapt [27:53] The definition of brilliant workflows for each of the doctors
The amount of imaging and technology has greatly increased which has upped the workload for radiologists, but the expectation and time requirements have stayed the same. AI is both exciting and a little scary to most in the medical imaging field. There is always some concern about whether it will replace radiologists' jobs, but its potential to help is incredible and can maximize productivity. Customization on top of standardization is key when creating technology for radiologists. They have different preferences in how they interpret images and how they work best.

[00:56] Fredrik and Olof give background info on themselves and Sectra [02:51] How Sectra defines customer centricity [06:36] Customer engagement drives strategic and long-term improvements [11:05] The process for setting priorities and choosing what to focus on [14:04] How they measure if they are making an impact [18:28] Olof shares a customer story
Sectra is genuinely focused on its customers. Everyone engages with customers in a personal way and gets feedback to make the products better. The numbers and data are important but it’s equally important to do customer visits to experience what drives those numbers. Getting feedback and testing while designing is just as important as feedback and checking after the release. With check-ins throughout the process, it can save time and drive the process as needed.
Radiology imaging: 5 ways AI can elevate your work
What are the most recent trends in radiology imaging? What impact does AI have on workflow efficiency? Steve Holloway, Company Director & Principal Analyst at Signify Research, Nynke Breimer, Global Product Manager, AI Radiology at Sectra, and Dr. Benjamin Fine, Radiologist and Clinician Scientist at Trillium Health Partners discuss key trends, and the role AI plays in improving clinical workflows.

IN THIS EPISODE:
[02:18] Experiences with workflow and integration within imaging informatics [05:41] What resonates with customers and makes a difference in end-to-end workflow [09:11] What is working well with the rollout of AI [15:06] The aspect of governance and challenges of integration [19:54] Considerations with the future of AI [24:46] Strategies to consider with enterprise imaging and AI
It is important that the end users trust what they see or adoption and integration will be difficult. The ability to cross-communicate between departments using AI technology has the potential to enhance collaboration and increase quality of care. Because of their experience with digitization and absorbing data from numerous sources, radiologists' roles are expected to evolve as AI is incorporated in clinical practice.
Loved the first three episodes. A lot of great information to soak up. Looking forward to more
