- Diana Bracco: "Artificial Intelligence will help radiologists make increasingly precise and reliable diagnoses"
MILAN, September 28, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Unlocking the AI revolution: a symposium on the future of the healthcare industry and diagnostic imaging in the era of artificial intelligence is the title that describes the theme of the edition 2023 Bracco Innovation Day. This event took place at the Human Technopole Auditorium in Milan.
Fulvio Renoldi Bracco, Vice President and CEO of Bracco Imaging, opened the event with a talk in which he observed: "Artificial intelligence is significantly impacting our lives and its adoption in diagnostic imaging will greatly benefit both patients and providers. Therefore, for some time we have been creating a dedicated AI team that collaborates with prestigious universities, hospitals and private companies and whose objective is to develop algorithms and intelligent solutions capable of improving the diagnostic performance of contrast media, resulting in increasingly accurate and predictive images.”
The symposium included three sessions with important international speakers and concluded with final words from Anna Maria Bernini, Minister of Universities and Research. The first session, which looked at the new capabilities of Artificial Intelligence in drug discovery, omics sciences and pharmaceutical manufacturing, highlighted how AI is set to play an important role in many aspects of medicine and the healthcare industry. . Specifically, AI will: accelerate the speed of development of new drugs designed for specific targets, facilitate the study and management of large amounts of omics data for the prevention and treatment of human diseases, and rationalize the production sector to maximize yields and minimize environmental impact.
The second session was dedicated to the impact of AI in radiology, where important topics related to the adoption of AI in diagnostic imaging were addressed.
The final session discussed the numerous ethical, political and regulatory aspects that national and international institutions are currently addressing in the face of the AI revolution.
This final session was opened by Diana Bracco, President and CEO of Bracco Group, who spoke about the growing importance of diagnostic imaging for patient health, a sector in which the company is a world leader. "Imaging is consolidating its status as a pillar of contemporary medicine and as an essential tool for the identification of pathologies and the development of innovative medical treatments. In fact, it is universally understood," he stated, "that early diagnosis not only allows for better personalized and precise, but also helps to address diseases in their early stages. Precision imaging, thanks also to its non-invasive nature and minimal risk to the patient, will increasingly occupy a central place in the medicine of the future , where diagnosis and therapy appear to be more closely integrated." Diana Bracco then focused her attention on the potential of the AI revolution for diagnostic imaging. "Artificial Intelligence will help our radiologists in their work, supporting them in the production of increasingly accurate and reliable diagnostic reports."
In addition to the many visitors, Bracco Innovation Day was attended by guest researchers from Bracco facilities in Italy, Switzerland, Germany, the United Kingdom, the United States and China. During the session dedicated to 'AI in radiology', the results of an important study published in the prestigious journal Investigative Radiology were presented: https://journals.lww.com/investigativeradiology/fulltext/9900/amplifying_the_effects_of_contrast_agents_on.129.aspx. The authors of this study were, among others, Alberto Fringuello Mingo, Sonia Colombo Serra and Giovanni Valbusa, three young researchers from Bracco Imaging. Using Artificial Intelligence, the team successfully “trained” a neural network using an innovative approach to enhance contrast in MRI images of the brain, all without any impact on the current clinical protocol.
