Building upon major advances in computer science, there has been an explosion of research interest in the use of deep learning in radiology. In this presentation, I will show how deep learning has led to major performance improvements in radiology image analysis, including automated body part recognition, lesion segmentation and detection. I will discuss how deep learning may enable fully-automated radiology image interpretation. Finally, I will show how deep learning systems can be trained using large numbers (>100,000) of radiology images and text reports.
