Some of the topics discussed were the anonymization of Medical Imaging Data, the data management, the AI Model of the Healthcare System of Catalonia, the AI validation (different approaches and pro’s and con’s) and the use and integration of these new technologies from the industrial point of view. Also of particular interest was the presentation on accumulated experiences from The Cancer Imaging Archive held by Prof. Fred Prior.
