The new ACR Data Science Institute (DSI) will work with government, industry and others to guide and facilitate the appropriate development and implementation of artificial intelligence (AI) tools to help radiologists improve medical imaging care.

The ACR DSI will lead creation of a national quality, technical and leadership framework to:

  • Define appropriate medical imaging AI use cases
  • Set standards for medical imaging AI interoperability
  • Test and evaluate medical imaging AI algorithms
  • Address regulatory, legal and ethical issues that accompany medical imaging AI

The DSI will benefit from decades of ACR experience in developing DICOM standards, modality accreditation, appropriateness criteria, practice standards and radiology workflow standardization.
