Large Google Health study gives boost to breast AI
January 2, 2020 -- A Google Health study involving nearly 29,000 mammograms from the U.K. and U.S. has provided fresh evidence that artificial intelligence (AI) can be as effective as human radiologists at detecting breast cancer. The findings were published in Nature on 1 January.  Discuss
Sinitsyn: Get ready for AI and the next big leap forward
December 23, 2019 -- Radiologists must be fully prepared for the next big technological leap forward that will be brought on by the implementation of artificial intelligence (AI), according to Prof. Valentin Sinitsyn, president of the Russian Society of Radiology.  Discuss
Deep learning boosts prediction of breast cancer risk
December 18, 2019 -- Swedish researchers are convinced an artificial intelligence algorithm that analyzes negative screening mammography exams can produce more accurate forecasts of a woman's future risk of breast cancer than models based on breast density measurements. They published their results online on 17 December in Radiology.  Discuss
AI-assisted FDG-PET/CT advances lung nodule detection
December 16, 2019 -- Swiss investigators have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm that could become a valuable tool for detecting small, FDG-avid pulmonary nodules on oncologic PET/CT scans, according to a study published online on 10 December in European Radiology.  Discuss
AI can speed up whole-body diffusion-weighted MRI
December 12, 2019 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm was able to produce high-quality whole-body diffusion-weighted MRI (WBDWI) in a fraction of the time traditionally needed to perform these exams, potentially enabling wider use of clinical WBDWI, U.K. researchers reported at RSNA 2019.  Discuss
Sosna: Love your profession, be more visible in era of AI
December 11, 2019 -- Imaging specialists need to love their profession more and promote visibility and understanding of radiology's role so the importance of the discipline is appreciated fully by medical colleagues and patients in the era of artificial intelligence (AI). That's the view of Prof. Jacob Sosna, president of the Israel Radiological Association.  Discuss
AI assists detection of vertebral fractures on CT
December 6, 2019 -- Dutch artificial intelligence (AI) researchers have trained a 3D convolutional neural network to localize and grade vertebral fractures in a manner that's consistent with clinical practice. They presented their findings at the 2019 RSNA meeting in Chicago.  Discuss
What's AI's clinical role in breast screening?
December 2, 2019 -- The critically important task of showing how artificial intelligence (AI) can enhance patient management surfaced on the first day of RSNA 2019, when the latest clinical evidence of AI's potential contribution in breast screening came under intense scrutiny.  Discuss
AI tool needs more diverse skin types in datasets
November 29, 2019 -- A dermatology algorithm powered by artificial intelligence (AI) that can identify a range of skin conditions doesn't work effectively on black skin, according to researchers in Uganda and Sweden. The study highlights the potential risks of AI-based healthcare and the need to ensure diversity in datasets used to train algorithms.  Discuss
SERAM president gazes into radiology's future
November 28, 2019 -- The radiologist as an "information manager" will coexist with the radiologist as a "carer of the patient" during the era of artificial intelligence. That's the prediction of Dr. Pablo Valdés Solís, president of the Spanish Society of Medical Radiology (SERAM), who is concerned about possible turf wars and continued economic problems.  Discuss
