Deep learning can detect location of PICC line tips
June 12, 2017 -- A deep-learning algorithm that can prescreen chest radiographs for an incorrectly positioned peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) was presented at the recent Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine annual meeting. The algorithm can alert radiologists to immediately prioritize those cases.  Discuss

ACR 2017: GE's Immelt says radiologists should not fear AI
May 23, 2017 -- WASHINGTON, DC - Radiologists should take advantage of artificial intelligence (AI) by using it to improve their hospitals and practices, and they shouldn't fear that the technology will take their jobs, advised Jeffrey Immelt, chairman and CEO of General Electric, during a May 21 keynote address at the American College of Radiology (ACR) meeting.  Discuss
ACR launches Data Science Institute to drive AI
May 21, 2017 -- The American College of Radiology (ACR) announced an initiative on Sunday at its annual meeting aimed at advancing the field of artificial intelligence (AI) in radiology. The college's new Data Science Institute plans to work with industry partners and regulators to spur the adoption of these tools in clinical practice.  Discuss
'Deep patient' may point the way to better care
May 12, 2017 -- SAN JOSE, CA - With so much research focused on disease diagnosis using artificial intelligence, it's easy to overlook a largely untapped resource that could wield at least as much firepower to reinvent healthcare for the better. That resource is the deep patient, according to a May 11 talk at the NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference.  Discuss
Deep learning for lung cancer advances goals
May 11, 2017 -- SAN JOSE, CA - Deep-learning algorithms based on convolutional neural networks are advancing a number of cherished goals in lung cancer analysis that will soon help patients live longer -- and even predict how long they might expect to live, according to a May 10 talk at the NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference.  Discuss
AI will bring doctors and machines together in radiology
May 10, 2017 -- SAN JOSE, CA - Physicians and machines will work better together rather than separately when it comes to deploying artificial intelligence (AI) for analyzing medical images in the years to come, according to a series of presentations on May 9 at the NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference.  Discuss
