AI may predict COVID-19 progression on chest x-rays
May 12, 2020 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm can predict how COVID-19 cases will progress based on analysis of baseline chest x-rays, offering potential to help in deciding how to triage these patients, according to a study posted online May 5 as a preprint on medRxiv.org.  Discuss
AI could enhance chest imaging's COVID-19 role
May 11, 2020 -- Artificial intelligence (AI) could enhance the role of chest imaging in the COVID-19 pandemic, moving it beyond disease evaluation to applications such as assessing risk, monitoring treatment, and discovering therapeutic targets, according to an editorial published May 6 in Radiology: Artificial Intelligence.  Discuss
AI predicts Alzheimer's disease using MRI, patient info
May 8, 2020 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) model was able to predict a patient's risk for Alzheimer's disease by analyzing brain MRI exams and nonimaging factors such as age, gender, and cognitive test scores, according to research published online May 1 in Brain.  Discuss
Can AI provide 'nowcasts' for COVID-19 on chest x-rays?
May 5, 2020 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm developed based on concepts commonly employed in economics and meteorology can yield a high level of accuracy for identifying COVID-19 on patients' chest radiographs, according to research from the University of Hong Kong. It also significantly outperformed radiologists.  Discuss
