Automatic diagnosis: How algorithms support radiology

Dear Sir or Madam,

Algorithms have become an integral part of modern life. They are programmed to solve problems automatically and without human intervention. A project now wants to use machine learning to support radiology. You can read how this should look like in our current interview.

Have an educational week,
