Video from ECR 2018: Erik Ranschaert on a clinical view of AI
March 1, 2018 -- VIENNA - Artificial intelligence (AI) is about much more than just data analysis, says Dr. Erik Ranschaert, PhD, vice president of the European Society of Medical Imaging Informatics. He gives a clinical perspective on AI and explains how exactly the technology can transform the working lives of radiologists.  Discuss
Video from ECR 2018: Bernd Hamm on Brexit, AI, and the big chill
February 28, 2018 -- VIENNA - Brexit will have no impact on the relationship between the European Society of Radiology and the U.K. Royal College of Radiologists, said ECR 2018 President Dr. Bernd Hamm in an exclusive interview. He shares his thoughts on the first day of the congress, including the impact of artificial intelligence (AI), attendance so far, how the organizers are beating the cold weather, and why he's serving as ECR president for the second time.  Discuss
Separating the art of medicine from artificial intelligence
February 21, 2018 -- Is it feasible to develop an artificial intelligence algorithm that can actually "read" chest x-rays? The task is definitely not an easy one and major challenges must be addressed, writes radiologist Dr. Hugh Harvey in his new column.  Discuss
Can artificial intelligence enable a 10-minute MRI scan?
January 17, 2018 -- Artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms promise to improve the imaging workflow, leading to significantly faster MR image acquisition times as well as vastly improved image quality in low-dose CT images. Consultant radiologist Dr. Hugh Harvey from London investigates in a new column.  Discuss
PACS with AI can replace PACS without AI
January 8, 2018 -- Artificial intelligence (AI) can help solve the huge reporting backlog, but this requires industry's cooperation, writes Dr. Neelam Dugar. PACS with AI will replace PACS without AI in the next five to 10 years, so don't get left behind, she urges.  Discuss
What's next for deep learning? Dutch show the way
January 3, 2018 -- A multidisciplinary team from the Netherlands collected a top award at RSNA 2017 for identifying four key areas of future development for deep learning: multitask learning, image-to-image synthesis, unsupervised learning, and uncertainty estimation and novelty detection.  Discuss
AI algorithm matches radiologists in breast screening exams
December 14, 2017 -- How does an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm compare to radiologists when it comes to interpreting screening mammography exams? Their performances were fairly comparable, according to research presented at the recent RSNA 2017 meeting in Chicago.  Discuss
Deep learning can quantify CAC on low-dose CT
November 29, 2017 -- CHICAGO - A deep-learning algorithm can automatically calculate coronary artery calcium (CAC) scores from lung cancer screening CT exams and facilitate risk stratification in these patients, according to research presented on Tuesday at RSNA 2017.  Discuss
EuSoMII: AI's on cusp of deployment in cancer screening
November 22, 2017 -- Artificial intelligence (AI) promises to transform radiological reading, and the imaging community must gear up for revolutionary diagnostic tools far removed from today's visual representations, a U.K. expert said at the European Society of Medical Imaging Informatics (EuSoMII) meeting.  Discuss
EuSoMII: Radiologists, AI must share control of data
November 20, 2017 -- While Hollywood portrays dystopias in which artificial intelligence (AI) has rendered humans obsolete, the truth may not be quite as grim if imaging can harness the power of machine learning, according to research presented on 18 November at the European Society of Medical Imaging Informatics (EuSoMII) meeting in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.  Discuss
