The aim of this survey was to assess undergraduate medical students’ attitudes towards artificial intelligence (AI) in radiology and medicine. A web-based questionnaire consisting of various sections aiming to evaluate the students’ prior knowledge of AI in radiology and beyond was sent out to students at three major medical schools. The survey showed that undergraduate medical students do not worry that AI will replace human radiologists, and are aware of the potential applications and implications of AI on radiology and medicine.
- Medical students are aware of the potential applications and implications of AI in radiology and medicine in general.
- Medical students do not worry that the human radiologist or physician will be replaced.
- Artificial intelligence should be included in medical training.
