AI can assist in triaging abnormal chest x-rays
January 23, 2019 -- A study with nearly 500,000 patients seen at a top London hospital over 10 years has shown that artificial intelligence (AI) can accurately identify chest x-rays containing abnormal findings, enabling automated triage of these exams and getting them seen more quickly by radiologists. The findings were published online on 22 January in Radiology.  Discuss
