Video from UKIO 2019: Rachel Dunscombe on PACS gains
June 11, 2019 -- LIVERPOOL, U.K. - How can you get the best out of your PACS? How can interoperability and image sharing be improved? Prof. Rachel Dunscombe gave some practical advice on the opening day of the UK Imaging & Oncology Congress (UKIO).  Discuss
Deep learning provides boost for liver imaging
May 30, 2019 -- Two German radiologists have developed a deep-learning algorithm to assist with liver MRI scans. The procedure can also be applied to other diagnostic issues, delegates learned at the 100th German Radiology Congress in Leipzig.  Discuss
Forsting: Brain imaging for metastasis is not easy
May 29, 2019 -- Radiologists must beware of normal brain images in cancer patients with neurological symptoms and adopt more sensitive techniques to catch brain metastasis. That's the view of Prof. Michael Forsting, who will deliver a keynote lecture on this topic today at the 100th German Radiology Congress (RöKo 2019), to be held from 29 May to 1 June in Leipzig.  Discuss
DRG prepares to unveil book at 100th congress in Leipzig
May 24, 2019 -- The German Radiological Society (DRG) is to launch a new book about medical imaging's current and future role during the upcoming 100th German Radiology Congress (RöKo 2019), which begins in Leipzig on 29 May.
French survey reveals what radiologists expect from AI
May 21, 2019 -- 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.  Discuss
AI image interpretation platforms come of age
May 15, 2019 -- Image interpretation systems involving artificial intelligence (AI) have improved dramatically, and huge potential now exists for boosting patient management decisions with image preanalysis by AI algorithms, writes Dr. Neelam Dugar. Adopting common standards is vital, however.  Discuss
EuSoMII supports worldwide survey on radiology AI
May 14, 2019 -- A team of Dutch, German, Czech, and U.S. radiologists and radiology residents has unveiled an online survey to determine how members of the global medical imaging community view the use of artificial intelligence (AI). The European Society of Medical Imaging Informatics (EuSoMII) supports the initiative.  Discuss
AI predicts myocardial infarction, death in patients at risk of CAD
May 13, 2019 -- By analyzing clinical and hybrid imaging data, an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm can predict which patients will go on to experience myocardial infarction or death during long-term follow-up, according to research from Finland presented at this week's International Conference on Nuclear Cardiology and Cardiac CT in Lisbon.  Discuss
How to train the medical physicists of the future
May 10, 2019 -- At the recent European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology meeting in Milan, a debate examined the skills that medical physicists will require in 10 years' time and asked how training for medical physicists specializing in radiation oncology should develop over the next decade. Five expert speakers presented their thoughts -- and then let the audience decide.  Discuss
AI-based FFR-CT software offers robust performance
May 8, 2019 -- Different CT tube voltage levels didn't hinder the performance of a prototype artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm for estimating fractional flow reserve on coronary CT angiography (FFR-CT), according to a study by a multinational research group published on 30 April in the American Journal of Roentgenology.  Discuss
