A newly announced fund will help implement artificial intelligence (AI) in NHS Trusts. The AI Diagnostic Fund will help promote the use of AI solutions for imaging and diagnostics for conditions like cancer, cardiovascular disease, and stroke. One key goal is to get AI tools for stroke diagnosis to all stroke centers by the end of this year.

According to BusinessCloud, “This AI Diagnostic Fund will include the use of AI tools to analyse chest X-Rays – the most common tool used to diagnose lung cancer – which is the leading cause of cancer death in the UK. With over 600,000 chest X-rays performed each month in England, the deployment of diagnostic AI tools to more NHS Trusts will support clinicians to diagnose cancer patients earlier, improving patient outcomes.”
