AI analyzes likelihood, extent of COVID-19 on chest CT
August 6, 2020 -- A freely available artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm can yield comparable diagnostic performance to radiologists for assessing the likelihood and severity of COVID-19 on noncontrast chest CT exams in patients suspected of having the disease, according to research published online in Radiology on July 30.  Discuss
NIH launches COVID-19 AI, imaging data center
August 5, 2020 -- The U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) has launched the Medical Imaging and Data Resource Center, which will provide artificial intelligence (AI) and medical imaging data to clinicians treating patients with COVID-19.
Radiologists reading mammograms show wide variation
July 31, 2020 -- Radiologists interpreting mammograms demonstrated a wide range of sensitivity for detecting cancer, according to results of a study published July 28 in Radiology. The authors believe the findings justify the use of computer-aided detection (CAD) solutions for breast screening.  Discuss
Federated learning yields high-quality AI model
July 31, 2020 -- Federated learning -- an approach to training deep-learning models that incorporates data from other sites without sharing the actual data -- can protect patient privacy and enable more-generalizable radiology artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms, according to research published online July 28 in Scientific Reports.  Discuss
AI boosts MRI's performance for detecting liver lesions
July 29, 2020 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm improved MRI's performance when it comes to tracking changes in liver lesions after therapy has started, according to a study published July 25 in the Journal of the American College of Radiology.  Discuss
Using AI with x-ray improves hip fracture diagnosis
July 29, 2020 -- Using an artificial intelligence (AI) deep convolutional neural network to analyze x-ray images improves radiologist performance in identifying hip fractures, according to a study published July 23 in the European Journal of Radiology.  Discuss
AI, radiomics can predict stroke treatment success
July 28, 2020 -- Artificial intelligence (AI) and radiomics can help to predict if a particular treatment strategy for acute ischemic stroke will be successful and how difficult the procedure will be, potentially paving the way for personalized endovascular patient management, according to research published online July 20 in Stroke.  Discuss
AI spots cervical cancer lymph node metastasis on MRI
July 24, 2020 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm was able to preoperatively identify lymph node metastasis on MRI in patients with cervical cancer, potentially enabling some patients to avoid unnecessary surgery, according to research published online July 24 in JAMA Network Open.  Discuss
AI can assess COVID-19 severity on chest x-rays
July 24, 2020 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm can quantitatively assess the severity of COVID-19 on frontal chest x-rays, offering potential as a clinical triage and workflow optimization tool, according to research published online July 22 in Radiology: Artificial Intelligence.  Discuss
AI reduces missed lung cancers on chest x-ray
July 23, 2020 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm can help reduce the number of missed lung cancers on chest x-ray, according to a study published July 21 in Radiology. The study results point to AI as an effective way to address the challenging task of spotting subtle suspicious lung lesions.  Discuss
