AI can detect, assess white-matter lesions on CT scans
June 1, 2018 -- Researchers from the U.K. have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm capable of accurately detecting and rating the severity of brain lesions on CT scans of patients presenting with stroke or dementia, according to an article published on 15 May in Radiology.  Discuss
Augmented reality, AI algorithms bolster liver surgery
May 31, 2018 -- Researchers from Germany have developed artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms that can generate a 3D liver model from MRI or CT scans. They examined these 3D models to plan liver cancer surgery and also projected them onto the patient intraoperatively using augmented reality software.  Discuss
