ETC on Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Thank you to all who participated in the SAR AI Challenge!


The AI Challenge received over 50 submissions encompassing 30 institutions and 4 countries.  Each submission was reviewed by members of the AI ETC for technical innovation and feasibility and the relevant DFP members for potential impact.  The reviewers were blinded and over 70 of them were involved in the scoring.  This challenge has generated tremendous discussion, education and excitement around AI for all abdominal imaging. 


A Very Special Thank You to Bracco and ACR Data Science Institute for Their Support of the 2020 SAR TANK!
