Italians show CAD improves prostate biopsy targeting April 11, 2017 -- An artificial intelligence-based computer-aided detection (CAD) system that analyzes prostate MR images for tumors improves the targeting of core biopsies for cancer diagnosis, according to Italian research presented at ECR 2017. With fine-tuning, the system could improve patient care.
IR with CAD permits ultralow lung CT dose April 10, 2017 -- Iterative reconstruction (IR) can improve lung nodule detection with 3D computer-aided detection (CAD) to the point where nodule detection using ultralow-dose CT is comparable with standard and low-dose exposures, according to researchers from Japan presenting at ECR 2017 in Vienna.
Spanish present 15-point plan to reduce error rates April 5, 2017 -- A group of experienced radiologists from Madrid has developed a comprehensive, practical approach to cut error rates by adopting methods such as standardized imaging protocols. They collected a certificate of merit at ECR 2017 in Vienna for their efforts.
The great enabler: Artificial intelligence in radiology March 24, 2017 -- Much has already been debated over the effect of artificial intelligence (AI) for radiology, and now the first products have started to enter the market. AI will not replace radiologists, but enable them, according to market analyst Stephen Holloway.
Deep learning offers promise for prostate MRI reads March 22, 2017 -- Deep-learning software can outperform a nondeep-learning method that's been used previously in computer-aided detection software and may be able to help radiologists differentiate between prostate cancer and benign conditions on MRI, according to research presented this month at ECR 2017.
