Artificial intelligence for MRI distinguishes uterine cancer from fibroids
November 15, 2018 -- A machine-learning algorithm for MRI helped clinicians differentiate uterine sarcomas from leiomyomas, according to a study published online November 12 in the European Journal of Radiology. The algorithm could help women avoid unnecessary surgery, concluded the researchers from Iran.  Discuss
Are medical students avoiding radiology because of AI?
November 13, 2018 -- Are some medical students choosing not to pursue radiology as their specialty due to concerns over the potential effects of artificial intelligence (AI)? The answer appears to be yes, according to results from a survey of Canadian medical students published online November 11 in Academic Radiology.  Discuss
How well does imaging AI perform in the real world?
November 7, 2018 -- Artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms can yield impressive results when tested on images similar to those used in their training. But how well do they do on images acquired at other hospitals and on different patient populations? Not always as well, according to research published online November 6 in PLOS Medicine.  Discuss
Deep-learning algorithm predicts Alzheimer's disease
November 7, 2018 -- By learning to identify the metabolic patterns of Alzheimer's disease, a deep-learning algorithm for brain FDG-PET studies can accurately predict the onset of this devastating disease years before a clinical diagnosis can be made, according to new research published online in Radiology.  Discuss
Machine learning can predict stroke treatment outcomes
October 30, 2018 -- Making use of imaging features and demographic information, machine-learning algorithms predicted 90-day outcomes in patients with acute ischemic stroke, offering potential as an aid for treatment decisions, according to research published online October 24 in the American Journal of Roentgenology.  Discuss
5 reasons why imaging AI is different from CAD
October 29, 2018 -- Artificial intelligence (AI) in medical imaging is on the rise and already becoming part of the standard of care. But with all the hype, one must ask: Is next-generation imaging AI simply a new take on computer-aided detection/diagnosis (CAD)? Aidoc CEO Elad Walach presents five reasons why AI is fundamentally different.  Discuss

October 26, 2018 -- The American College of Radiology Data Science Institute (ACR DSI) has released a series of standardized artificial intelligence (AI) use cases that will accelerate the adoption of AI for medical imaging.  Discuss
Deep learning improves detection of cerebral aneurysms
October 26, 2018 -- A deep-learning algorithm can provide an effective second assessment of MR angiography studies, helping to catch cerebral aneurysms that were missed by the radiologist during initial interpretation, Japanese researchers reported in an article published online October 22 in Radiology.  Discuss
ASTRO: AI's rad therapy future is in predicting outcomes
October 22, 2018 -- SAN ANTONIO - Radiation oncology is already putting artificial intelligence (AI) to work by using the technology for automating mundane tasks. But AI's real value will come when it is able to accurately predict patient outcomes, according to a Sunday talk at the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) annual meeting.  Discuss
