I am confident with the direction that the CAR is heading and the progress that our association is making. Canadians have become more aware of the value of radiology and the role that radiologists play in the healthcare team. Read More
The recent White Paper titled Ethical and Legal Issues Related to Artificial Intelligence1, championed by members of the CAR AI Working Group, has received attention from not only the radiology community but also key decision-makers. Read More
On Thursday, May 23, 2019, in Montreal, Quebec, the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation Science and Economic Development announced that the government will invest up to $49 million in the Digital Health and Discovery Platform (DHDP). The DHDP is a network of partners, including the Canadian Association of Radiologists (CAR) that is led by the Terry Fox Research Institute (TFRI) and Imagia. Read More
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is rapidly gaining momentum within Canadian healthcare, specifically in the field of medical imaging. Although in the research phase, AI in radiology is of growing interest to the medical community and to patients across the country.
A recent poll conducted by Nanos revealed that an overwhelming 83% of Canadians would support research in the use of AI in radiology in Canada. Working in collaboration with a panel of experts, the Canadian Association of Radiologists (CAR) is taking a leadership position in AI and has written a White Paper, which describes ways in which this technology may be used to improve the delivery of patient care and overall population health...more.
The CAR’s Artificial Intelligence Working Group, chaired by Dr. An Tang (Université de Montréal) is pleased to announce the publication of its White Paper on Artificial Intelligence in Radiology in the Canadian Association of Radiologists Journal. Read More
Artificial Intelligence in Radiology-Present and Future is the theme for CAR 2018, or more formally known as the 2018 Annual Scientific Meeting of the Canadian Association of Radiologists (CAR).
Over four days in Montreal, radiologists, residents and industry partners from across North America will share their work, network, and socialize against a backdrop of topics that demonstrate how imaging is harnessing the power of technologies such as deep learning and artificial intelligence.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) refer to computer algorithms that change their output based on exposure to more data input. These algorithms were initially described decades ago, but they became economically feasible to use only recently, because of more powerful computers combined with the availability of appropriate machine-consumable input data.
