Siemens Healthineers and European Society of Radiology Initiate Partnership for Digitalization

Siemens HealthineersWith their first course under the heading "Intelligence. Innovation. Imaging - The perfect vision of AI," held in Barcelona on April 5-6, Siemens Healthineers and the European Society of Radiology launched a collaborative arrangement aimed at promoting discussion with the radiology community. This concept had already proven itself in the Digital Experience Hall at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR), where it focused on the digital future of radiology, and the partners now intend to continue the arrangement: "Digitalization affects all of us, and will fundamentally change our lives and the healthcare industry," says Christoph Zindel, President Diagnostic Imaging at Siemens Healthineers. "Companies must actively promote and understand the topic if they are to shape this digital future. That makes it all the more important to have an effective discussion with the radiology community, so we can work together to identify effective solutions and promote further dialogue." The Chairman of the ESR Board of Directors, Professor Lorenzo E. Derchi, from Genoa (Italy), adds, "We are very pleased that Siemens Healthineers has not only put the forward-looking themes of radiology, digitalization, and artificial intelligence at the heart of its corporate interests, but is also working with ESR to determine how we can best make these themes accessible to our members. The event in Barcelona was a great, highly successful launch, and we hope there will be many more high points to follow."

In the future, Siemens Healthineers will regularly publish texts and interviews on the subject of AI on the AI Blog, which ESR recently introduced.
