SERAM: The golden circle of success for radiologists
May 25, 2018 -- PAMPLONA, Spain - Radiologists should think of their specialty as more than just a job, according to presentations on 24 May opening the Spanish Society of Medical Radiology (SERAM) biennial congress. The discussion included talks on artificial intelligence, big data, and robotics -- technologies that are here to stay, the speakers noted.  Discuss
Strickland welcomes U.K. government statement on AI
May 21, 2018 -- It's vital to harness the full potential of artificial intelligence (AI) to treat cancer and improve research, U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May said in a speech on Monday that has been welcomed by Royal College of Radiologists President Dr. Nicola Strickland.  Discuss
Building ethical AI: Why we must demand it
May 16, 2018 -- A dark, dystopian future where artificial intelligence (AI) brutally and coldly runs the world and humans serve merely as a biological tool is a real possibility, writes Dr. Hugh Harvey, but how can we avoid this grim prospect? He addresses the question in his new column.  Discuss
Artificial intelligence tackles global cancer care
May 8, 2018 -- As the technologies used to treat cancer continue to evolve, the amount of clinical data being recorded and analyzed is growing at an unprecedented level. The recent ESTRO 37 congress in Barcelona addressed artificial intelligence's role in this process.  Discuss
Can deep learning power mammography CAD to new heights?
April 24, 2018 -- Computer-aided detection (CAD) software based on a deep-learning algorithm can accurately detect as well as characterize lesions on mammography studies, Hungarian researchers have reported in an article recently published online by Scientific Reports.  Discuss
Long-term deals and AI drive Q1 sales growth at Philips
April 23, 2018 -- More long-term managed service deals, along with increased activity in the artificial intelligence (AI) sector and a strong performance in ultrasound, have contributed to revenue growth at Philips during the first three months of 2018.  Discuss
Machine learning for fracture detection gathers pace
April 11, 2018 -- U.K. researchers have provided fresh evidence about the feasibility of transfer learning from pretrained convolutional neural networks. They demonstrated the technology's accuracy to predict fractures can be increased by removing surplus imaging data and reducing the opportunity for overfitting.  Discuss
ACR partners with MICCAI to make AI a clinical reality
March 30, 2018 -- Two influential radiology groups have signed a partnership to foster development of artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms to better meet the clinical needs of radiologists.
