AI improves reader performance for ABUS studies
February 14, 2020 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm could potentially help radiologists and other physicians improve their ability to classify lesions on automated breast ultrasound (ABUS) exams, according to research published online February 12 in Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology.  Discuss
CT radiomics unlocks basal ganglia stroke onset time
February 11, 2020 -- The combination of radiomics and a machine-learning algorithm can determine on CT if an ischemic stroke in the basal ganglia occurred within the window of time in which a stroke patient can still receive thrombolysis, according to research published online February 10 in the Journal of the Neurological Sciences.  Discuss
AI boosts radiologists' mammography performance
February 10, 2020 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm trained with a large set of mammography data outperformed radiologists when it came to identifying breast cancer in a new study, but it also helped them improve their own performance, according to research published online February 6 in Lancet Digital Health.  Discuss
AI predicts progression of osteoarthritis on x-rays
February 10, 2020 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm can predict how osteoarthritis will progress over four years based on analysis of baseline knee x-rays and other risk factors, according to research published online February 6 in Osteoarthritis and Cartilage.  Discuss
14 ways AI can improve the business of radiology
February 7, 2020 -- Business analytics based on artificial intelligence (AI) can create value for radiology practices by improving processes, optimizing resources, and enhancing workflow, according to an article published in the current issue of Seminars in Musculoskeletal Radiology.  Discuss
AI may help improve management of stroke patients
February 5, 2020 -- Artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms can determine from multiparametric MRI exams if a stroke patient's symptoms began within 4.5 hours -- the recommended window of time for a patient to be treated with thrombolysis, according to research published online January 28 in Stroke.  Discuss
AI helps characterize breast masses on ultrasound
February 4, 2020 -- A breast ultrasound artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm was able to differentiate breast masses at a high level of accuracy by combining analysis of B-mode and color Doppler images, according to research published online January 31 in European Radiology. It even yielded comparable performance to experienced radiologists.  Discuss
Deep learning distinguishes between Alzheimer's, iNPH
February 3, 2020 -- A deep-learning algorithm can differentiate between Alzheimer's disease and idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (iNPH) on MRI scans at a comparable accuracy to radiologists, according to research published online January 22 in Magnetic Resonance in Medical Sciences.  Discuss
AI finds infarction in stroke patients on unenhanced CT
January 30, 2020 -- Canadian researchers found that their artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm was able to find and quantitate infarcted brain tissue on baseline CT studies in patients with acute ischemic stroke, potentially helping to improve treatment decisions, according to research published online January 28 in Radiology.  Discuss
Deep learning could help MS patients avoid GBCA MRI
January 28, 2020 -- With the aid of a deep-learning model, a team of researchers has detected with greater than 70% accuracy active lesions in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS), potentially helping them avoid repeat MRI scans and multiple doses of gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs), according to a study published in the February issue of Radiology.  Discuss
