AMVC 2020: Leading radiology's fight against COVID-19

May 15, 2020

The appearance of a new coronavirus in Wuhan, China, in late 2019 raised alarm bells in Hong Kong, and radiologists in the city quickly mobilized to prepare for the pandemic. Dr. Michael Kuo of the University of Hong Kong shares their experiences and what they learned.

In the May 1 presentation from AuntMinnie.com's 2020 Virtual Conference, Kuo discusses how hospitals and public health authorities in Hong Kong learned from the outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in 2002-2003, which informed the city's response to SARS-CoV-2. He also discusses the use of advanced technology to fight COVID-19, such as artificial intelligence (AI), which could provide an early warning of future outbreaks.

Kuo is founding director of the Medical Artificial Intelligence Lab Program in the department of diagnostic radiology at the University of Hong Kong. He also founded Ensemblehealth.AI.
