Healthcare organizations are likely to see a rapidly growing market around artificial intelligence tools for medical imaging, a new report predicts.

The market for artificial intelligence (AI) tools to process and analyze medical imaging studies is slated to push past $2 billion by 2023, according to a new report from Signify Research.

Healthcare organizations are increasingly eager to implement machine learning, deep learning, and other detailed pattern recognition algorithms that can provide clinical decision support while improving the efficiency of radiologists, pathologists, and other image-based diagnosticians.

As clinical and financial use cases for AI become more enticing – and fears over the role of artificial intelligence in medicine start to abate – healthcare providers appear somewhat more willing to experiment with new types of data-driven decision-making, the report says.

Deep learning will be a particularly important strategy for AI developers, and will account for more than half of the anticipated market growth over the next five years.
