ContextVision to show upgraded software at ECR 2017 February 24, 2017 -- Image enhancement software developer ContextVision plans to highlight upgrades to its US PlusView ultrasound image enhancement software and its GOPView XR2 Plus image enhancement technology at ECR 2017 in Vienna.
Spanish group seeks to integrate CAD, PACS February 23, 2017 -- Computer-aided detection (CAD) software and PACS software may not always be integrated in the most user-friendly fashion. A Spanish research group hopes to change that with a new software platform that will make it easier for all hospitals in the region of Galicia to expand their use of CAD.
Alzheimer's CAD uses deep networks to boost accuracy February 23, 2017 -- Spanish researchers have built a technique for the early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease based on the use of a deep-learning algorithm. The method replaces visual inspection of MRI and PET data with comprehensive image analysis of affected brain tissues that exploits their 3D nature.
Karolinska implements Philips navigation system February 15, 2017 -- Karolinska University Hospital has deployed Philips Healthcare's new augmented-reality surgical navigation system to perform image-guided spine surgery in the facility's hybrid operating room.
New CT algorithm reduces noise, dose February 14, 2017 -- A reconstruction algorithm for CT fluoroscopy demonstrated a "significant" reduction in noise and effective dose compared with filtered back projection in a study by German researchers and published online by European Radiology. The algorithm also boosted readers' confidence.
Machine-learning analysis of heart motion predicts survival February 8, 2017 -- A machine-learning survival model based on 3D cardiac motion predicts outcomes beyond conventional risk factors in patients with pulmonary hypertension, according to a new study from the U.K. and Singapore. Semiautomated analysis of the cine MR images could potentially be used to guide patient management.
Pixyl receives capital for software February 8, 2017 -- Startup neurology and radiology software firm Pixyl has received an investment of 500,000 euros from ITTranslation Investment, Crédit Agricole, and Davycrest Nominees.
Machine learning in radiology targets efficiency February 6, 2017 -- While artificial intelligence is unlikely to replace radiologists any time soon, a new breed of software applications based on machine learning is poised to take on many of their tedious, repetitive, and time-consuming tasks -- improving productivity and freeing up more time.
Parizel calls for more standardization of MRI protocols February 1, 2017 -- DUBAI - The development of effective imaging biomarkers can spark a huge improvement in the diagnosis, management, and follow-up of patients with multiple sclerosis, but much greater standardization is required, ECR 2017 President Dr. Paul Parizel, PhD, told delegates at the Arab Health congress.
