Pass the radiology exam, an artificial intelligence bot!

Monterey– A good Artificial Intelligence (AI) may be just what the doctor ordered, or at least the day before.

An AI system recently passed a radiology exam with an average accuracy of 79.5 percent across 10 tests, researchers in the UK found. That’s not bad, Business Insider reported, considering that the average accuracy for human radiologists is 84.8 percent.

The researchers, who published their study in the British Medical Journal, wanted to determine whether an AI bot could pass the “quick report” portion of the Fellowship of the Royal College of Radiologists (FRCR) exam, which radiologists in the UK must pass. . to complete your training.

In the Quick Report section the candidates are required to interpret 30 radiographs in 35 minutes.

To pass, candidates must report at least 90 percent of radiographs correctly; The AI ​​scored over 90 percent on 2 of the 10 tests it took.

“This part of the exam is designed to ‘stress test’ candidates for speed and accuracy, providing a mix of challenging normal and abnormal cases that would normally be encountered in general practice and radiological interpretation in clinical practice.” are referred to by the emergency department,” the researchers explained.

They used 10 simulated FRCR Rapid Report tests for the study. The AI ​​candidate was a commercially available smartergence tool developed by the French company Millview.

The study also included 26 radiologists who had taken and passed the actual FRCR exam within the past year.

When no interpretive images were used, which the AI ​​doesn’t record at all, the AI ​​candidate had an average overall accuracy of 79.5 percent and was able to pass 2 out of 10 tests. Radiologists were 84.8 percent accurate and passed 4 out of 10 tests.

For images that radiologists often misdiagnose, the AI ​​was wrong only 50 percent of the time.
