Abstract

The role of artificial intelligence is increasing in all branches of medicine. The emerging role of artificial intelligence applications in nuclear medicine is going to improve the nuclear medicine clinical workflow in the coming years. Initial research outcomes are suggestive of increasing role of artificial intelligence in nuclear medicine workflow, particularly where selective automation tasks are of concern. Artificial intelligence-assisted planning, dosimetry and procedure execution appear to be areas for rapid and significant development. The role of artificial intelligence in more directly imaging-related tasks, such as dose optimization, image corrections and image reconstruction, have been particularly strong points of artificial intelligence research in nuclear medicine. Natural Language Processing (NLP)-based text processing task is another area of interest of artificial intelligence implementation in nuclear medicine.
