July 17, 2022 -- VIENNA - Using an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm to triage screening mammography exams for interpretation both cuts radiologists' recall rates and their daily reading list, according to a presentation delivered on 16 July at ECR 2022. Read More
ECR: AI could avoid further follow-up for lung nodules
July 16, 2022 -- VIENNA - An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm for pulmonary nodule detection can enable many patients to be discharged earlier from follow-up in lung cancer screening, according to research presented at ECR 2022. Read More
Video from ECR 2022: Alexander Radbruch on gadolinium retention
July 16, 2022 -- VIENNA - The jury's still out on the potential dangers of gadolinium retention in the brain caused by gadolinium-based contrast agents used in MRI, according to Prof. Dr. Alexander Radbruch. He also thinks a watching brief is needed on the rising incidence of gadolinium found in wastewater and that artificial intelligence (AI) may cut gadolinium dose by 10% in the next five years.
