Opinion: Radiologists must reflect on best uses for AI
February 11, 2019 -- Medical students aren't being taught enough about artificial intelligence (AI) technology, and radiologists need to actively consider how best to validate, approve, and integrate AI algorithms into their clinical practices, according to an editorial published online on 8 February in European Radiology.  Discuss
6 trends to watch at ECR 2019
February 6, 2019 -- With just three weeks to go, the global radiology community is readying itself for ECR 2019 in Vienna, the 25th anniversary of the congress. In keeping with this year's aquatic theme of "the bigger picture," our market columnist Stephen Holloway has selected six of the hottest topics in the broader medical imaging arena today.  Discuss
What can radiologists learn from skiers?
January 28, 2019 -- Research on avalanche safety shows that training doesn't offer complete protection against making bad decisions, and well-trained, sensible people are led astray by their own cognitive biases. That rings true as much for radiology as for winter sports, Dr. Giles Maskell writes.  Discuss
To be seen or not seen, that is the question for radiology
January 25, 2019 -- Once viewed as an "ancillary" service, radiology and its status and profile have risen steadily over the years, but more direct contact with patients now is essential if the profession is to rise to the next level, the Maverinck writes.  Discuss
AI can assist in triaging abnormal chest x-rays
January 23, 2019 -- A study with nearly 500,000 patients seen at a top London hospital over 10 years has shown that artificial intelligence (AI) can accurately identify chest x-rays containing abnormal findings, enabling automated triage of these exams and getting them seen more quickly by radiologists. The findings were published online on 22 January in Radiology.  Discuss

Deep learning enables automatic radiotherapy planning
January 10, 2019 -- A multi-institutional team has developed an automated treatment planning system for intensity-modulated radiation therapy based on 3D dose prediction and dose distribution-based optimization. The researchers demonstrated that the deep-learning-based method shows promise for generating highly individualized radiotherapy plans optimized for precision and quality.  Discuss
Austrians spell out how to succeed with machine learning
January 7, 2019 -- It's vital for radiologists to understand the basic principles of machine learning and the differences between supervised and unsupervised learning, as well as to appreciate the importance of data quality, according to award-winning research from Austria.  Discuss
Where is AI making the difference in radiology today?
January 4, 2019 -- Artificial intelligence (AI) promises to reduce costs and improve clinical outcomes, and it can provide useful support tools that can be integrated into current workflow, PACS, medical imaging hardware, and healthcare clouds, writes industry expert Gene Saragnese.  Discuss
