French unveil new initiative in artificial intelligence
June 4, 2018 -- France's national professional council, G4, has launched a novel collaboration with other partners to develop a complete artificial intelligence tool for medical imaging. The project's committee has urged industry to participate in the "AI imaging ecosystem" scheme.  Discuss
AI can detect, assess white-matter lesions on CT scans
June 1, 2018 -- Researchers from the U.K. have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm capable of accurately detecting and rating the severity of brain lesions on CT scans of patients presenting with stroke or dementia, according to an article published on 15 May in Radiology.  Discuss
Augmented reality, AI algorithms bolster liver surgery
May 31, 2018 -- Researchers from Germany have developed artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms that can generate a 3D liver model from MRI or CT scans. They examined these 3D models to plan liver cancer surgery and also projected them onto the patient intraoperatively using augmented reality software.  Discuss
SERAM: The golden circle of success for radiologists
May 25, 2018 -- PAMPLONA, Spain - Radiologists should think of their specialty as more than just a job, according to presentations on 24 May opening the Spanish Society of Medical Radiology (SERAM) biennial congress. The discussion included talks on artificial intelligence, big data, and robotics -- technologies that are here to stay, the speakers noted.  Discuss
Strickland welcomes U.K. government statement on AI
May 21, 2018 -- It's vital to harness the full potential of artificial intelligence (AI) to treat cancer and improve research, U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May said in a speech on Monday that has been welcomed by Royal College of Radiologists President Dr. Nicola Strickland.  Discuss
Building ethical AI: Why we must demand it
May 16, 2018 -- A dark, dystopian future where artificial intelligence (AI) brutally and coldly runs the world and humans serve merely as a biological tool is a real possibility, writes Dr. Hugh Harvey, but how can we avoid this grim prospect? He addresses the question in his new column.  Discuss
Artificial intelligence tackles global cancer care
May 8, 2018 -- As the technologies used to treat cancer continue to evolve, the amount of clinical data being recorded and analyzed is growing at an unprecedented level. The recent ESTRO 37 congress in Barcelona addressed artificial intelligence's role in this process.  Discuss
CAD gains momentum for scoring of lung nodules
May 2, 2018 -- Computer-aided detection (CAD) and risk stratification are useful for excluding lung cancer on thoracic CT, according to Scottish and Dutch researchers. CAD followed by radiology review of suspicious cases is cost-effective and can lead to a 30% reduction in screening costs, they say.  Discuss
Can deep learning power mammography CAD to new heights?
April 24, 2018 -- Computer-aided detection (CAD) software based on a deep-learning algorithm can accurately detect as well as characterize lesions on mammography studies, Hungarian researchers have reported in an article recently published online by Scientific Reports.  Discuss
