Siemens Healthineers Demonstrates the Potential of Generative AI in Medical Technology

At RSNA 2023, Siemens Healthineers has presented ideas and prototypes for the use of generative AI that not only focus on image or text applications, but also combine them.

A chat system is being developed that will load, link and prepare the appropriate responses, reports and images, so that clicking on a medical image will highlight the appropriate area in the report – and vice versa. In addition, reports on diagnostic images will be dynamically generated by AI and prioritized according to importance.

Siemens Healthineers is also working on generative AI for use in customer service and support and medical staff training, making generative AI an important part of the so-called “Smart Imaging Value Chain”. This includes intelligent data integration throughout the entire imaging process – from patient history to reporting.

We are working with Siemens Healthineers to use AI to scan hundreds of databases for information about the patient or their illness by using natural language with the power of large language models and get a clear picture. In the future, using such applications we will be able to identify possible issues in the course of treatment very easily and will be able to incorporate new findings from research into treatment much faster. Some of it is still a vision, but with large language models, such scenarios become conceivable,” says PD Dr. Johannes Haubold, Senior Physician for Clinical AI Integration at the University Hospital Essen, Germany.

André Hartung, Head of Diagnostic Imaging at Siemens Healthineers, says: “Thanks to our products and the extensive image and text data they generate, we are in a unique position: clinicians can focus more on the medical question and the patient. They lose less time searching through the available data sets. This is just the beginning of our journey to generative AI.”
