Scan AI: London Medical Imaging & AI Centre

On the 23rd July 2019, Scan, NVIDIA, Mellanox and NetApp came together at Kings College London to reveal the collaborative deep learning & AI solution that had been deployed in KCL's Medical Imaging & AI Centre.

The projects aim was to bring artificial intelligence in medical imaging to the point of care. In contrast to traditional medical testing, which involves sending scans for further analysis by specialists, point of care testing allows the results gained from X-rays, CT scans or MRI to be delivered immediately at the time of the patient-doctor interaction.

The collaborative partners deployed the NVIDIA DGX-2 AI supercomputer as part a cluster that powers the first phase of the project. The system’s large memory and two petaflops of compute prowess enables the KCL team to tackle the training of large, 3D datasets in minutes instead of days.

The work aims to discover breakthroughs in classifying stroke and neurological impairments, determining the underlying causes of cancers, as well as recommending the best treatment for patients.
