Aidence has become a corporate member of the British Institute of Radiology (BIR), an international membership organisation for everyone working in imaging, radiation oncology and the underlying sciences.
Aidence’s mission is to use artificial intelligence (AI) to empower radiologists to deliver better, more affordable cancer care. Already a strong supporter of the BIR’s events on artificial intelligence, Aidence will be one of the sponsors of a key virtual event in the BIR programme, Lung Cancer Imaging: Update for the not-so-new normal, on 11 September 2020.
Simon Thompson, Chief Executive of the BIR, said:
“It is very exciting to welcome Aidence to the BIR as a corporate member. Their involvement and collaboration will help chest radiologists explore how AI can support their work”.
Dr Lizzie Barclay, Medical Director for Aidence and previous radiology registrar, commented:
“The BIR is a fantastic organisation, committed to truly supporting the radiology community – with, for instance, the great educational materials I’ve so keenly used during my radiology traineeship. I am honoured to partner with the BIR to further show today’s radiologists how AI can reduce some of their workload and help them provide better healthcare.”
BIR corporate members are an integral part of the BIR community and work with the wider membership to develop educational events, webinars, and publishing activities.
