Artificial Intelligence (AI) is one of the most invested and explored technologies in the 21st century. Medical imaging has been the pioneer field in the healthcare industry, in deploying AI. It was initially expected that the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic would have a negative impact on the growth of demand for AI-enabled medical imaging solutions. However, contrary to the expectations, in reality, the COVID-19 pandemic increased the requirement for AI-enabled solutions and enhanced their adoption for diagnosis through medical imaging. Several governments have also been playing a crucial part in bolstering the adoption of AI-enabled imaging solutions to overcome the COVID-19 crisis.
