AI Chatbot Model Generating Reports on ACL Tears

AI Chatbot Reads Knee X-Rays for ACL Repair Diagnosis
For years, we have heard that artificial intelligence (AI) is going to make physicians obsolete. In medicine, our training focuses on looking for patterns of symptoms that lead us to a diagnosis. For example, a swollen knee, medial pain, and locking or catching is a medial meniscal tear until proven otherwise. Of all the medical fields, radiology seems to be the most amenable to the practical use of AI, and this session gives just one example where a chatbot can determine which patients, after knee injury, need an MRI to rule out an ACL tear after a knee x-ray. Perhaps this new chatbot will improve access to care and fast track patients who need expedited care.
