Europe lags behind on clinical implementation of AI
June 28, 2022 -- A new European survey suggests that the use of artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms in clinical radiology remains limited, largely because the impact of these tools on the reduction of radiologists' workload is still unproven. Read More
Why radiologists and AI must work together on breast cancer screening
June 27, 2022 -- A breast cancer screening workflow that leverages the different strengths of radiologists and artificial intelligence (AI) software can improve overall accuracy and reduce workload, a large U.S.-German study has discovered. Read More
AI chest x-ray software displays clinical promise in children
June 24, 2022 -- A new study has found that an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm initially cleared for analyzing chest x-rays of adult patients may also be effective for use in children. The algorithm was tested for identifying eight detectable lesions, and achieved an accuracy of 87.5%. Read More
Commoditization poses growing threat to radiology, Brady warns
June 20, 2022 -- The commoditization of radiology endangers the capacity of the specialty to maintain its hard-won central role in patient care. This is the view of Dr. Adrian Brady, consultant radiologist at Mercy University Hospital in Cork, Ireland, and first vice president of European Society of Radiology. Read More

AI tool shows promise in stenosis detection in vulnerable patients
June 14, 2022 -- A new artificial intelligence (AI) tool can accurately detect coronary CT angiography images of the arteries with significant stenoses, flagging them for priority reading by a human expert in a few seconds, a French expert has reported. Read More
Dutch team evaluates how AI can help cut scan times for breast MRI
June 3, 2022 -- Artificial intelligence could help decrease radiologist workloads by nearly 16% when it comes to ultrafast breast MRI scans by identifying patients who are most likely to have cancer, researchers from Groningen in the Netherlands have concluded. Read More
SERAM: Oleaga calls for more dynamic approach to AI
May 30, 2022 -- MALAGA - Lack of automation and knowledge are important obstacles to deployment of artificial intelligence (AI) in radiology practice, Prof. Dr. Laura Oleaga, PhD, said in a keynote lecture at the annual meeting of the Spanish Society of Radiology (SERAM). Read More
French team finds AI software can help cut PET scan times in half
May 27, 2022 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm can improve image quality in half-count F-18 FDG-PET scans, a finding that paves the way for significant cuts in acquisition time in routine clinical practice, nuclear medicine specialists from France have reported. Read More
Deep learning gives major boost to tumor segmentation in prostate MRI
May 25, 2022 -- German researchers have used a convolutional neural network (CNN) to automatically segment prostate tumors in multiparametric MRI data. The CNN can produce trustworthy clinical results, even if it is trained with manually segmented data, they reported at ISMRM 2022. Read More
