Dear Women's Imaging Insider,
What if your department could reduce the number of mammograms on its daily reading list by almost 20%? At this year's ECR in Vienna, Swedish researchers presented data that suggest using artificial intelligence (AI) software can help radiologists do just that, making them more efficient and allowing them to spend time on screening exams that need extra attention. Check out this edition's Insider Exclusive to find out more.
When you've finished reading our featured article, take a look at what else is going on in the Women's Imaging Community, including more coverage from ECR 2019:
- Discover why researchers from the University of Southern California say that AI-based computer-aided detection could improve radiologists' breast cancer detection rates and increase department revenues.
- Is breast screening AI software equivalent to radiologists? Maybe for the average breast radiologist but not for the most experienced, Dutch investigators say.
- Learn more about a dedicated breast CT scanner Swiss researchers claim could offer an alternative to mammography and digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT).
- Find out what contributing writer Stephen Holloway of U.K.-based Signify Research has to say about DBT going mainstream in Europe.
- Read why Egyptian investigators believe that automated breast ultrasound is more accurate than DBT as a diagnostic tool for working up positive findings on mammography screening in dense breast tissue.
- Discover why Austrian and German researchers say that healthy women at high risk of developing breast cancer need not fear gadolinium breast MRI screening.
