1st Workshop on Artificial Intelligence for Next-Generation Diagnostic Imaging (AI4NextGenDI'22)

Sofia, Bulgaria, 4 - 7 September, 2022


The application of artificial intelligence (AI) becomes nowadays one of the most promising areas of health innovation. Among the most promising clinical applications of AI is diagnostic imaging, where AI algorithms can boost processing power of huge, heterogeneous medical image resources and therefore uncover disease characteristics that fail to be found by the naked eyes. AI can optimize radiologists' workflows and facilitate quantitative assessments of radiographic characteristics using radiomics approach. Nowadays refinement of AI imaging studies is required by consistent selection of clinically meaningful and patient-related endpoints.

The workshop on Artificial Intelligence for Next-Generation Health and Medical Applications – AI4NextGenHMA'22 - provides an interdisciplinary forum for researchers, developers, radiologist and clinicians to present and discuss latest advances in research work related to theoretical and practical applications of AI in diagnostic imaging and related areas. The workshop aims to bring together specialists for exchanging ideas and promote fruitful discussions.


The list of topics includes, but is not limited to:

  • AI for diagnostic imaging and digital pathology
  • DL models and architectures for medical image analysis
  • Explainable AI (XAI) for diagnostic imaging
  • Radiomics and quantitative image analysis
  • Structured reporting in radiology
  • Standardization of data annotation for AI
  • Clinical decision support systems, especially integrating results of image analysis
  • Clinical pathways based on image analysis and integration of clinical data
  • Biomedical ontologies, terminologies, standards and clinical guidelines
  • Data mining and knowledge discovery in radiology
  • Domain knowledge representation and integration into DL/ML models in medical tasks
  • Precision medicine and personalized medicine based on diagnostic imaging
  • Natural language processing for radiological report analysis
  • Medical signal processing and analysis
  • Social and ethical aspects of AI in radiology
