AI in Medical Imaging May Exaggerate Health Inequities

2023 15 May

Researchers from the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM) found that after analysing crowd-sourced sets of data used to create AI algorithms from medical images, most did not contain demographic data. In addition, they found the algorithms were not evaluated for inherent biases.   This implies that researchers or clinicians who may... Read more
