U.K. radiographers need boost to explain AI to patients
July 7, 2022 -- U.K. radiographers are on shaky ground when it comes to explaining decisions aided by artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms to patients, say researchers. They suggest the issue could be holding back wider use of the technology in an article published July 1 in Radiography. Read More
