EVALI shows particular imaging findings on CT
December 1, 2020 -- Particular CT imaging findings such as a diffuse alveolar damage pattern can help radiologists diagnose electronic cigarette or vaping product use-associated lung injury (EVALI), according to a presentation delivered on Monday at the virtual RSNA 2020 meeting.  Discuss
3D printing makes giant strides in liver
December 1, 2020 -- 3D models that combine vascular and biliary anatomy using different imaging techniques can contribute to more rigorous planning of complex liver operations, including hepatic resections, living-donor transplantation, vascular intervention procedures, and biliary reconstruction surgery, Portuguese researchers reported at RSNA 2020.  Discuss
GE products at RSNA 2020 include AI-enhanced imaging
December 1, 2020 -- GE Healthcare is demonstrating a slate of new imaging technologies at this week's virtual RSNA 2020 meeting, including the latest version of its interventional imaging platform, a new 3D mobile C-arm, and an array of products enhanced with artificial intelligence (AI).  Discuss
AI catches interval breast cancers missed by rads
December 1, 2020 -- Artificial intelligence (AI) software could help cut down on the number of interval breast cancers, according to research presented Monday at the 2020 virtual RSNA meeting. An AI program detected more than one-third of breast cancers missed on screening mammography in two different studies.  Discuss
Can AI software drive CT lung screening rates higher?
December 1, 2020 -- Can software based on artificial intelligence improve the anemic rates of CT lung cancer screening in the U.S.? That's the hope of Infervision, whose InferRead Lung CT.AI software won the Minnies award for Best New Radiology Software. The application is designed to automatically detect lung nodules on chest CT exams.  Discuss
How good is the evidence supporting AI in radiology?
December 1, 2020 -- Just how good is the quality of scientific evidence supporting the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in radiology? The research study named the Scientific Paper of the Year in the Minnies awards found that much of the evidence claiming AI algorithms are superior to human experts tends to be of low quality and based on exaggerated claims.  Discuss
Can AI be a second reader in breast cancer screening?
November 30, 2020 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm could obviate the need for a second radiologist to review a screening mammogram in more than four out of five exams performed for a national breast cancer screening program, according to a presentation on Monday morning at the virtual RSNA 2020 meeting.  Discuss
AI, COVID-19 imaging dominate RSNA 2020 so far
November 30, 2020 -- What have been the top stories at this week's RSNA 2020 virtual conference? Artificial intelligence (AI), imaging of COVID-19, and breast MRI have drawn attention, according to this roundup from day 2 of the meeting, provided by AuntMinnie.com's editorial team.  Discuss
New York neurorads share COVID-19 best practices
November 30, 2020 -- New York City has been dramatically affected by the COVID-19 crisis, and neuroradiologists there were at times the first to identify the disease incidentally via imaging exams performed for other purposes, according to two presentations delivered on Monday at the virtual RSNA 2020 conference.  Discuss
Involve medical students in reporting, Swiss team urges
November 30, 2020 -- Integrating medical students into the radiology reading room can have major long-term benefits, and the accuracy of medical students' reports is only slightly inferior to that of first-year residents, Swiss researchers have reported at the virtual RSNA 2020 meeting.  Discuss
RSNA 2020 PREVIEWS
November 18, 2020 -- Artificial intelligence (AI) may again be the darling of this year's RSNA meeting, but there's more to imaging informatics than AI, of course. Our final stop on this year's Road to RSNA preview takes a look at what to expect in enterprise imaging, clinical decision support, 3D printing, augmented and virtual reality, business analytics, patient portals, and other informatics topics.
November 17, 2020 -- The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted CT's usefulness as a diagnostic tool -- especially in the early days of the outbreak, when laboratory tests were scarce and results were delayed. Attendees at RSNA 2020 will learn about research demonstrating CT's efficacy in COVID-19 patients, as well as its use in cardiac imaging and other important areas.
November 16, 2020 -- A number of exciting women's imaging topics will be featured at the virtual RSNA 2020 meeting, including developments in ultrasound screening and cutting-edge interventional techniques to treat breast malignancies.
November 12, 2020 -- In this most unusual of years, x-ray has once again demonstrated why it's still the most widely used medical imaging modality, some 125 years after that historic experiment in Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen's lab.
November 11, 2020 -- It's no secret that 2020 has been a challenging year, as healthcare providers around the world have attempted to cope with the global pandemic caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. But MRI has shown its value throughout the crisis, and attendees of the virtual RSNA 2020 meeting will be sure to encounter research that highlights the modality's efficacy.
November 10, 2020 -- It's been a big year for ultrasound, and the presentations at the virtual RSNA 2020 meeting are sure to continue that trend. The conference will cover a number of cutting-edge ultrasound topics, including the use of artificial intelligence and contrast-enhanced applications.
November 9, 2020 -- Welcome to the first installment of this year's Road to RSNA preview of the RSNA 2020 meeting. Although RSNA 2020 will be held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic, attendees will find no shortage of scientific and educational content. And as in recent years, artificial intelligence will have a dominant presence at the meeting.
