MAS-AI: Model for ASsessment of Artificial Intelligence

In the coming years, artificial intelligence (AI) wil play an increasingly bigger role at Odense University Hospital (OUH) and other hospitals in Denmark and abroad. In particular, the area of medical imaging appears to be an area that may benefit from the technology.

The use of AI may affect a number of different fields; the organisation of treatment, patient security, effect of the treatment, the patient’s experience with the treatment, inequality in health, economy, staffing requirements and ethics.


The project aims to develop a model (MAS-AI: Model for ASsessment of Artificial Intelligence) to assess the value of AI technologies in the field of medical imaging. The assessments can help decision makers select the AI technologies that create value and avoid implementing technologies with no or unintentional effects.

The model is developed based on the following steps:

  1. A review of existing guides, evaluations and assessments of the value of AI in the field of medical imaging
  2. Interviews with leading researchers in AI in Denmark
  3. Workshops with decision makers, patient organisations and researchers

Based on the results from the steps above, the project will develop an overall model, which provides administrative and clinical decision makers with an overview of the consequences of AI technology in the field of medical imaging.


Start: 2020
End: 2021


The project is a cooperation with the Department of Radiology and the Department of Nuclear Medicine at OUH.
