AI algorithm predicts immunotherapy response
August 30, 2018 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm can analyze a radiomic-based biomarker on CT scans to predict how cancer patients will respond to immunotherapy, French researchers reported in an article published online on 14 August in the Lancet Oncology.  Discuss
Regulation needed to ensure safe use of AI in radiology
August 29, 2018 -- Proper regulation is needed to ensure that artificial intelligence (AI) software is used safely, ethically, and appropriately with protection of patient privacy in radiology, according to Italian researchers in a review article recently published online in Insights into Imaging.  Discuss
Computer scientists may hold trump cards in AI's future
August 15, 2018 -- Unlike traditional areas of research that require clinician supervision, investigations of artificial intelligence (AI) imaging are likely to be driven by computer scientists, and this may restrict the input of radiologists and sit uncomfortably with them, writes Dr. Simon Wong.  Discuss
Medical imaging AI market primed for growth
August 3, 2018 -- The world market for artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning in medical imaging is set for robust growth and is forecast to top $2 billion by 2023. The sector holds great promise, but barriers must be overcome before AI becomes mainstream, writes industry analyst Simon Harris.  Discuss
AI algorithm predicts billing codes from MRI log data
July 31, 2018 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm can accurately predict billing codes from log data of MRI studies, potentially helping to avoid coding errors and reducing radiographers' workload, German researchers reported at the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine meeting in Paris.  Discuss
PACS can play key role in tackling backlog of scans
July 30, 2018 -- Want to increase your reporting efficiency? Check your PACS/RIS. That's the message of researchers from a top London facility who found that, depending on the PACS/RIS, between 33% and 51% of reporting time can be spent on tasks not related directly to image interpretation.  Discuss
Can AI enhance the utility of breast conebeam CT?
July 30, 2018 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm for breast conebeam CT (CBCT) studies can accurately differentiate between benign and malignant breast lesions, potentially improving the real-world performance of radiologists reading CBCT images, according to a Web-exclusive paper in the August issue of the American Journal of Roentgenology.  Discuss
U.K. issues guidelines on building digital archives
July 18, 2018 -- The U.K. Royal College of Radiologists (RCR) has released detailed guidance on the technical requirements for radiologists and industry to facilitate and improve connectivity and also simplify submission of anonymized, annotated cases between a PACS and a digital archive.  Discuss
