But is this more hype than reality? We speak to Prof Ng Kwan Hoong, Medical Physicist and Professor, Department of Biomedical Imaging, University of Malaya, and Dr Evelyn Ho, Consultant Clinical Radiologist, to separate the aspirational aspects of AI from the practical, when it comes to improving imaging and diagnosis of diseases.
