JFR 2018: French radiology backs new nonprofit AI plan
October 17, 2018 -- Interest in artificial intelligence (AI) showed no sign of waning for the duration of the Journées Francophones de Radiologie Diagnostique & Interventionnelle (JFR 2018), and the congress proved the perfect stage for announcing the latest AI project: a nonprofit association.  Discuss
JFR 2018: Must you perform prostate MRI before each biopsy?
October 16, 2018 -- Most experts recommend MRI for patients with a history of systematic negative biopsies and in whom there is still a suspicion of prostate cancer, but the added value remains controversial, Dr. Olivier Rouvière, PhD, told delegates at the French national radiology congress (JFR 2018).  Discuss
AI can prescreen head CT studies for urgent findings
October 16, 2018 -- A set of artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms can prescreen head CT scans for urgent findings such as intracranial hemorrhage and cranial fracture, enabling triage of these cases for priority review by radiologists, according to research published online on October 11 in the Lancet.  Discuss
JFR 2018: Spotlight falls on radiomics
October 15, 2018 -- Being both data-driven and a vital element of discovery research, radiomics is poised to be a pivotal process for the development of new diagnostic imaging strategies and therapies, delegates learned at the French radiology congress (JFR 2018).  Discuss
Pressures on radiology increase litigation risks
October 15, 2018 -- Unprecedented pressures and the constant struggle to tackle the seemingly endless reporting backlog are contributing to a sustained rise in the number of litigation claims involving radiology, but the number of legal cases remains small, a U.K. study has found.  Discuss

October 12, 2018 -- Rivals in the ongoing big data/artificial intelligence (AI) challenge that will take place during the course of the French national radiology congress (JFR 2018) are eager for the next round of images, scheduled for opening day on 12 October in Paris.  Discuss
PET/CT rivals CT for NSCLC recurrence
October 11, 2018 -- Swiss researchers have found that FDG-PET/CT is "not superior" to contrast-enhanced CT in the detection and evaluation of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) recurrence two years after follow-up curative treatment. Their study was published online on 4 October in the Annals of Thoracic Surgery.  Discuss
