Imaging of the heart, including scans and x-rays, has transformed modern medicine by helping us to understand disease and monitor treatments. Artificial intelligence (also called machine learning) has great potential to improving imaging research and patient care. This talk will discuss what artificial intelligence is and how it is being used in imaging research at the University of Edinburgh. However, there are also challenges to the use of artificial intelligence techniques. We will explore the issues and ethical considerations around integrating artificial intelligence into cardiac imaging.

Professor Michelle Williams is a Professor of Cardiovascular Imaging at the University of Edinburgh and Honorary Consultant Radiologist at NHS Lothian. She is Associate Director of the British Heart Foundation Data Science Centre and the Imaging theme lead. Her research, funded by the British Heart Foundation, centres around multi-modality non-invasive imaging of the heart and blood vessels, including using machine learning and other advanced analytic techniques. She is president of the British Society of Cardiovascular Imaging, member of the executive community of the European Society of Cardiovascular Radiology, member of the Board of Directors of the Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography.
