The HEALTHY-AI Lab is a part of the ROBUST program, which focuses on creating trustworthy AI-based systems for sustainable growth. The lab aims to contribute to Sustainable Development Goal 3, Target 3.8, by increasing the cost-effectiveness of healthcare services and improving access to quality essential healthcare services, through developing AI-enabled workflow solutions. In the specific case of prostate MRI, the lab aims to improve diagnostic accuracy and reduce the need for unnecessary biopsies through the use of AI-aided diagnosis. This can not only improve patient outcomes and reduce healthcare costs but also contribute to reducing the burden on healthcare systems.
In addition, the HEALTHY-AI Lab also supports Sustainable Development Goal 9, Target 9.5. Specifically, by developing and implementing AI solutions in the field of medical imaging, the HEALTHY-AI Lab drives innovation and helps to modernize and improve the infrastructure of healthcare systems. This can lead to more efficient and effective healthcare delivery and support the development of industries related to medical technology and AI. The use of AI-steered acquisition strategies and an AI quality management system can also improve the quality of healthcare services and reduce costs associated with medical imaging.
