The integration of machine learning models into healthcare systems offers unprecedented opportunities for improving diagnostic accuracy, treatment planning, and patient outcomes. However, this technological advancement brings forth a host of ethical considerations that demand careful scrutiny. This research paper explores the multifaceted ethical landscape surrounding the deployment of machine learning models in healthcare settings. The ethical considerations encompass a spectrum of issues, including but not limited to patient privacy, transparency in algorithmic decision-making, bias mitigation, and the potential impact on healthcare disparities. The paper examines existing ethical frameworks and proposes guidelines for ensuring responsible and patient-centric deployment of machine learning in the medical domain.It explores cases where ethical considerations may conflict with the pursuit of optimal algorithmic performance, emphasizing the importance of prioritizing patient well-being and maintaining public trust.
