ARTICLE SUMMARY:

MCRA’s Alex Cadotte, who just finished a six-year stint with the Imaging Software Team in FDA’s Division of Radiological Health, and Gregory Ramina, who directs regulatory affairs at Viz.ai, one of the first firms to bring a pure AI tool through the agency, talk to Market Pathways about FDA’s evolving approach to AI devices and the direction in which they hope things proceed.

Exactly how the agency will handle constantly evolving AI technologies in a way that ensures a reasonable assurance of safety and effectiveness, but doesn’t lead to unsustainable compliance costs for a field of mostly smaller start-ups, still remains to be seen.

Market Pathways sat down with two experts who have been in the AI regulatory trenches.
