AI can help facilitate gadolinium-free cardiac MRI
May 7, 2019 -- Chinese and U.K. investigators have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm that can detect chronic myocardial infarction on noncontrast-enhanced cardiac cine MRI. This might avoid the need for gadolinium-based contrast, according to an article posted online on 30 April in Radiology. Read More
New breast CAD advances detection with MRI, PET
May 3, 2019 -- Researchers from Austria have developed a new computer-aided segmentation and diagnostic (CAD) algorithm to distinguish between cancerous and benign breast lesions using PET and MRI data. Their study was published online on 27 April in European Radiology Experimental. Read More
Voice recognition: Informatics experts give their view
May 1, 2019 -- How much of an effect do voice recognition programs have on radiologists' efficiency? How can the technology be improved? The jury is still out on these systems, it seems, and some health IT specialists remain convinced there is significant room for improvement. Read More
AI can segment white-matter hyperintensities on MRI
April 22, 2019 -- Artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms are capable of segmenting cerebral white-matter hyperintensities of presumed vascular origin on brain MR images as well as or better than human observers, enabling more reliable quantification of these lesions, according to the results of a recent AI developer challenge.
