The project aims to estimate the potential impact AI technology may have on medical malpractice claims caused by diagnostic errors in radiology in NY. It will use a publicly available dataset in the US for malpractice claims, the NPDB, to analyse past paid medical malpractice claims and use these trends to forecast medical malpractice claims caused by diagnostic errors by radiologists. A systematic review of literature will then be conducted to estimate the take up rate and and accuracy of AI technology in radiology to forecast changes in these claims in the future under different legal scenarios.
