Aidence has become a corporate member of The British Institute of Radiology (BIR). The company’s mission is to use AI to enable radiologists to deliver better, more affordable cancer care. Already a strong supporter of the BIR’s events on AI, Aidence was a sponsor of a key virtual event in the BIR programme – ‘Lung cancer imaging: update for the not-so-new normal’ planned for September.
BIR chief executive Simon Thompson said: “It is very exciting to welcome Aidence as a corporate member. Their involvement and collaboration will help chest radiologists explore how AI can support their work.”
Aidence medical director and previous registrar Dr Lizzie Barclay added: “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.”
