“As I look to the future of my specialty of radiology and medicine as a whole, I see that various forms of artificial intelligence will play important roles in the practice of medicine in the future.” – Dr. Thomas Kim

Dr. Kim was the focus of the News-Gazette’s Wired In Sunday interview column on Jan. 6. The column features the Champaign-Urbana technology community. 

Dr. Kim’s startup, A2IR (Artificial Intelligence Imaging Research), became a tenant at the EnterpriseWorks incubator in September of 2018. The company  leverages artificial intelligence in interpretations of medical imaging studies. He is a radiologist at Carle in Urbana. 

“We are working to develop AI-driven software that will provide preliminary interpretation of selected radiology studies. It will help radiologists with improved workflow and efficiency, allowing them to handle the continually increasing volume of radiology exams and the increased complexity of each exam, especially as we look to the next 30 years in the U.S, with an increasing number of aging patients from the baby boomer generation.”
