French survey reveals what radiologists expect from AI
A new survey from France has shown that most radiologists believe artificial intelligence (AI) will reduce medical errors and allow them to spend more time with patients, but many of them still do not use AI. They fear they lack sufficient knowledge, and this may hamper future practice.
Postmortem pediatric imaging proves value
What are the key indications, advantages, and limitations of postmortem pediatric imaging? Which modality works best? And what is the role of 3D printing? Dr. Owen Arthurs from London's Great Ormond Street Hospital provides some answers.
