At this year’s Annual Scientific Meeting, the European Society of Breast Imaging (EUSOBI) will team up with the Swedish Society of Breast Imaging as they play host in Malmö, Sweden from September 29th through October 1st. In addition to keynote speakers like Prof. Therese Sørlie, who will examine “The intrinsic molecular subtypes in breast cancer”, and Prof. Regina Beets-Tan, who will address “The Future of Cancer Imaging”, attendees will get the opportunity to experience several eye-opening sessions and workshops devoted to the topic of artificial intelligence (AI).
On October 1st, the first session of the day, moderated by Drs. Kristina Lång and Matthew Wallis, will begin with “What does AI actually mean?” and “What can AI currently do in mammography, US and MRI?”, followed by a discussion on ethical issues of AI in medicine, a necessary conversation as the healthcare industry’s relationship with AI moves forward at such a rapid pace. The session will wrap up with a spirited “Oxford Debate” arguing on the issue of “This house believes that AI is ready to take over our role in screening mammography”; the “Yes” camp will be led by Prof. Fiona J. Gilbert and the “No” camp led by Prof. Sian Taylor-Phillips, which is sure to provide a stimulating conversation for those in attendance.
An exciting development that will also take place at EUSOBI 2022 will be the presentation of the AI-focused recipient of the EUSOBI Young Researcher Grant, Bas van der Velden, who will present his research on “Triaging women from MRI to mammography to adapt screening to changes in breast density using artificial intelligence”.
Several industry workshops will also be held during the annual meeting, two of which will focus on the topic of artificial intelligence. Siemens Healthineers, in collaboration with ScreenPoint Medical, will host the workshop “What, When, Why? Artificial Intelligence in Mammography”, examining the impact of AI in cancer detection and comparing the interpretation of 2D and 3D mammograms by AI systems and radiologists. The next AI-focused session, hosted by Lunit, will explore the current and future application of AI in mammography interpretation and cover experiences of using AI in clinical routine.
