ACR and Pathology Associations Discuss Possible AI Collaborations

Representatives of the American College of Radiology (ACR) met with leaders of The College of American Pathologists (CAP) and the Association for Pathology Informatics (API) in Pittsburgh May 5 before the Pathology Informatics Summit 2019 to explore ways to work together on artificial intelligence (AI) and structured reporting initiatives.

The ACR’s representatives suggested opportunities for committee work. Discussions among the three organizations will continue in coming weeks to determine areas of joint interest.

The ACR is currently working with the Society for Imaging Informatics (SIIM), the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) and other groups to develop collaborations for the safe and effective implementation of AI to augment patient care.
