Women’s attitudes to the use of AI image readers: a case study from a national breast screening programme
Researchers and developers are evaluating the use of mammogram readers that use artificial intelligence (AI) in clinical settings. In this study, the authors examined the attitudes of women towards the use of AI in mammogram reading using both a survey and focus groups. Based on the views of 4096 participants, the author concluded that women of screening age are ready to accept the use of AI in breast screening but are less likely to use other AI-based health applications. A large number of women are undecided, or had mixed views, about the use of AI generally and they remain to be convinced that it can be trusted.
