Medical imaging has remarkably advanced over the last decade with the widespread adoption of imaging technologies like atomic force microscopy (AFM), IR imaging, and enhanced US imaging Elastography. This progressive cycle of advancement, backed by continuous research and development in clinical analysis and medical intervention, is changing the outlook of diagnostic imaging services. Leading the transformation through a myriad of opportunities is artificial intelligence (AI). Although AI is being utilized as an extra pair of eyes for medical imaging analysis, radiologists are already exploring new services that extend the scope of AI applications beyond quality assessment and optimization of medical images. Despite AI applications’ superior processing and computing power, the best results are obtained from teamwork— radiologists and radiographers leveraging AI algorithms as a second look. In addition to the benefits of optimized productivity, AI-powered workflow engines enable quality and reliable collaboration for radiology reading workflows via medical equipment.
That being said, medical equipment and mobile devices produce a massive amount of patient-centric data, which has to be secured against data breaches and stored away from the peering eyes of hackers. Enter blockchain. This relatively new technology combined with AI algorithms provides reliable cybersecurity for radiologists and physicians sharing data across blockchain’s distributed ledgers. In addition to impregnable data security, blockchain technology supports the distribution of graphics processing units that drive AI analytics to facilitate future medical imaging endeavors. All these advancements are driving the adoption of cutting-edge medical imaging products and services among numerous healthcare professionals and researchers across the globe.
