AI Algorithm Clinical Deployment Evaluation Framework

Framework Description

This is a general framework for evaluation of AI algorithms for clinical deployment. Not all points in this framework will be relevant to every algorithm; each algorithm is likely to have certain unique considerations. This framework tries to give form to the evaluation for approval by covering the most common aspects that should be evaluated, discussed and considered

Definitions

  • Ready for Clinical Deployment = potentially ready to put into place where they will be used in regular clinical workflow
  • Algorithms that are in clinical validation mode = initial development of algorithm is complete but do some additional validation in a clinical development and not ready to use for clinical decision making

Analysis – Benefits

  • Breadth – how many cases/patients effected?
  • Depth – extent of effect on each case both on patients and radiologists

Risk & Costs - Erroneous Results

  • Detectability
  • Correctability
  • Impact on patients

Risk & Costs - Risk Spectrum

  • Low – prioritization/triage/alerting with little to no impact on patient
  • Moderate – decision/diagnosis support, workflow requires radiology evaluation
  • High – decision/diagnosis support that doesn’t require radiology evaluation
  • Highest – algorithms that produce clinical outputs that where there is no ability for radiologist to crosscheck; zero detectability and correctability of errors

Monitoring & QA

  • Follow-up evaluation of algorithm performance
  • Degree of monitoring correlates to Risk Spectrum
