Antoch spells out how radiology can thrive beyond 2020
November 20, 2019 -- Radiologists can only ensure their future success if they work together, learn more about artificial intelligence (AI) and radiomics, and obtain reliable data to validate, standardize, and certify potential AI applications. That's the view of Prof. Gerald Antoch, president of the German Röntgen Society.  Discuss
Medical students, radiologists may view AI differently
November 15, 2019 -- Radiologists are less afraid of artificial intelligence (AI) than medical students, who may avoid choosing radiology due to their pessimistic view of the technology's effects, according to the findings of a Swiss survey published online on 9 November in the European Journal of Radiology.  Discuss
Deep learning advances in 3D quantification of body composition
November 11, 2019 -- Accurate fully automatic segmentation of subcutaneous fat, visceral fat, and psoas muscle from abdominal CT is feasible without human input. That's the main finding of new artificial intelligence research conducted at the Utrecht University Medical Center in the Netherlands.  Discuss
Germany leads in new survey of burnout in radiology
November 6, 2019 -- Burnout has reached "crisis levels" in Germany among radiographers and imaging directors, according to a new survey of job satisfaction in four developed countries. In fact, 97% of respondents from Germany reported either "moderate" or "high" burnout levels -- a much higher rate than in other nations.  Discuss

European societies join in ethical AI statement
October 1, 2019 -- The European Society of Radiology and the European Society of Medical Imaging Informatics have collaborated with five other radiology and imaging informatics organizations to produce a new statement calling for codes of ethics and practice governing the use of artificial intelligence (AI).  Discuss
Lancet: Many AI studies lack quality and depth
September 25, 2019 -- Artificial intelligence (AI) can detect diseases from medical imaging with similar levels of accuracy as healthcare professionals, according to a new meta-analysis published on 24 September by Lancet Digital Health. However, the authors admit that only a tiny proportion of studies were of sufficient quality to be included in the analysis.  Discuss
5 facts to know about the JFR president
September 25, 2019 -- Dr. Catherine Adamsbaum is the president of France's national radiology congress (JFR), which begins on 11 October. How did she get to be where she is today, and where does she see radiology heading? In this profile, we paint a fuller picture of the person behind this year's presidency.  Discuss
Can an AI algorithm fool radiologists?
September 23, 2019 -- A type of artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm called a generative adversarial network can learn to insert suspicious lesions into -- or remove them from -- mammograms, but the technology isn't yet capable of fooling radiologists, according to Swiss research posted online on 10 September in the European Journal of Radiology.  Discuss
