Prokop: AI will enable you to focus on what matters
November 7, 2018 -- Many aspects of imaging are dull and should be automated, Dr. Mathias Prokop said at the annual European Society of Medical Imaging Informatics meeting on 3 November. Artificial intelligence (AI) will create the space and time for radiologists to concentrate on what really matters.  Discuss
Embedded AI x-ray units set for 2019 market launch
November 1, 2018 -- Central and Eastern Europe will be early adopters of "smart" imaging equipment with embedded artificial intelligence (AI), according to market guru Simon Harris. The first machines with embedded AI will appear in 2019, he predicts.  Discuss
AI gets attention in new cardiac training scheme
October 23, 2018 -- France's cardiac training program has been updated to take more account of artificial intelligence (AI), radiation dose, and the structured report. In this interview, Dr. Alexis Jacquier, PhD, vice president of the French Society of Cardio-Vascular Radiology, elaborates on the changes.  Discuss
JFR 2018: French radiology backs new nonprofit AI plan
October 17, 2018 -- Interest in artificial intelligence (AI) showed no sign of waning for the duration of the Journées Francophones de Radiologie Diagnostique & Interventionnelle (JFR 2018), and the congress proved the perfect stage for announcing the latest AI project: a nonprofit association.  Discuss
JFR 2018: Spotlight falls on radiomics
October 15, 2018 -- Being both data-driven and a vital element of discovery research, radiomics is poised to be a pivotal process for the development of new diagnostic imaging strategies and therapies, delegates learned at the French radiology congress (JFR 2018).  Discuss
JFR 2018: Teams prepare for battle in AI challenge
October 12, 2018 -- Rivals in the ongoing big data/artificial intelligence (AI) challenge that will take place during the course of the French national radiology congress (JFR 2018) are eager for the next round of images, scheduled for opening day on 12 October in Paris.  Discuss
Fake views: Generating image data for machine learning
October 10, 2018 -- Like a human locked in a white soundless room struggling to make sense of the outside world, artificial intelligence is impossible to achieve without some sort of input, Dr. Hugh Harvey writes. A functional algorithm must use data, he notes.  Discuss
Why radiology must take care when it comes to AI
September 26, 2018 -- Artificial intelligence (AI) is mindless, and this is a fundamental flaw, writes the Maverinck. There is no objectivity or neutrality in AI, and it's not a real science; it's closer to online gambling and tinkering than creating a fundamentally reliable support system for highly specific tasks, he argues.  Discuss
How can PACS functionality be improved?
September 25, 2018 -- PACS has come a long way since it was first adopted in the early 1980s. But PACS software developers still need to address important technological limitations that can have a negative impact on user experience, according to research published on 17 September in the Journal of Digital Imaging.  Discuss
