AI and breast density foretell potential risk of interval cancer
March 5, 2021 -- The combination of breast density and artificial intelligence (AI)-based analysis may be able to significantly reduce the number of interval cancers missed in mammography screening programs, Dutch researchers reported in a Thursday presentation at ECR 2021. Read More
AI detection of intracranial hemorrhage saves lives
March 4, 2021 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm that screens head CT exams for intracranial hemorrhage -- and triages suspected cases for radiologist review -- can yield significant improvements in patient outcomes, researchers from Israel reported on Wednesday at ECR 2021. Read More
Automated breast positioning comes under scrutiny at ECR 2021
March 3, 2021 -- A prize-winning ECR 2021 study of mammographic screening images has shown that automated analysis of breast positioning found a significant number of inadequate images in the technical repeats attributed to positioning errors. Read More

Don't become the recluses of medicine, Brady urges
February 12, 2021 -- There's a real danger the growth of artificial intelligence and the new working practices necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic will lead to "the vanishing radiologist" becoming a reality, Dr. Adrian Brady has warned in a hard-hitting opinion piece. Read More
Deep learning provides boost for detection of aortic valve calcium
February 10, 2021 -- Researchers have found that their artificial intelligence model was highly accurate for automatically detecting and quantifying aortic valve calcium on cardiac CT, outperforming radiologist assessments in severe cases. Read More
Teleradiology sector provides clear ray of hope in COVID-19 era
February 8, 2021 -- How is teleradiology faring in the pandemic? How is artificial intelligence shaping the market? How do the major players compare and what does the future hold? Analyst Arun Gill gives some answers. Read More
AI algorithm can boost breast cancer risk assessment
February 1, 2021 -- An international team of researchers has developed Mirai, an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm that can estimate a woman's risk of breast cancer across multiple future time points based on analysis of her mammogram and clinical risk factors. Read More
Sweden's Karolinska unveils breast AI results
December 23, 2020 -- Researchers from the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm have found that a breast cancer risk assessment model based on artificial intelligence (AI) outperformed traditional methods. The AI model beat conventional risk models used alone and when combined with breast density data. Read More
