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.
TeraRecon to target U.K. NHS Supply Chain
March 22, 2017 -- Advanced visualization software developer TeraRecon is setting its sights on the new U.K. National Health Trust (NHS) Supply Chain to sell more of its products and services abroad.
Medical image analysis sector set to expand
March 20, 2017 -- The worldwide medical image analysis software market is expected to climb at a compound annual growth rate of 8.1% during the period of 2016 to 2024, according to a report by market research firm Transparency Market Research.
ContextVision secures ultrasound patent
March 16, 2017 -- Image enhancement software developer ContextVision has secured a patent for a new skeletal visualization technology for 3D ultrasound.
Color mapping boosts vessel interpretation in stroke CT
March 6, 2017 -- VIENNA - Color mapping of cerebral vasculature in 4D CT angiography speeds interpretation and may improve accuracy in the detection of vessel occlusions in acute stroke patients, researchers said on Sunday at ECR 2017.
CAD beats readers for subsolid lung nodules
March 3, 2017 -- VIENNA - A computer-aided detection (CAD) scheme outperformed experienced human readers in detecting subsolid nodules as well as cancers in data from more than 2,000 lung cancer screening subjects, researchers reported on Thursday at ECR 2017.
