Many hospitals will be back at replacing their PACS in 2020. So what should radiologists be looking for?

Interesting article on machine Learning. Will PACS solutions in 2020 have integrated CAD for
1. Mammography
2. Lung shadow detection on plain X-rays
3. Lung nodule detection on CT
4. Fracture and dislocation detection on limb X-ray
5. Haemorrhage detection on CT Head
Etc
I think CAD is a very useful tool for radiologists as it can act as a 1st reader. The role of radiologist will move from "detection" to "interpretation". Radiologists will take into account the clinical history, demographics, past history, blood results etc to provide a "clinical opinion".

We are going to see a change in the role of radiologists in the digital era.
