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
Long-term deals and AI drive Q1 sales growth at Philips
April 23, 2018 -- More long-term managed service deals, along with increased activity in the artificial intelligence (AI) sector and a strong performance in ultrasound, have contributed to revenue growth at Philips during the first three months of 2018.  Discuss
Machine learning for fracture detection gathers pace
April 11, 2018 -- U.K. researchers have provided fresh evidence about the feasibility of transfer learning from pretrained convolutional neural networks. They demonstrated the technology's accuracy to predict fractures can be increased by removing surplus imaging data and reducing the opportunity for overfitting.  Discuss
