September 4, 2018 -- The RSNA has launched its second annual machine-learning challenge: The RSNA Pneumonia Detection Challenge invites teams to develop artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms to identify and localize pneumonia in chest x-rays, with top submissions to be recognized at the RSNA 2018 meeting.  Discuss
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
Can AI best quantitative MRI in prostate lesions?
August 2, 2018 -- Quantitative measurement of prostate MRI exams can yield better lesion characterization performance than just qualitative assessment by radiologists, German researchers have found. But can machine learning do even better? At least for now, the answer is no, according to a study published online on 31 July in Radiology.  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
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
