This came from a recent article on The Atlantic- “Anything You Can Do, Robots Can Do Better” which claims “in spite of the radiologist's training requirement of at least thirteen additional years beyond high school, it is conceptually quite easy to envision this job being automated. The primary focus of the job is to analyze and evaluate visual images. Furthermore, the parameters of each image are highly defined since they are often coming directly from a computerized scanning device”. Although, i don’t agree and think the author has forgotten much of the medical imaging interpretation requires more than just the visual skills there is lots of brains involved, it makes interesting reading.
Do you think Robots will replace radiologists in future?
