AI can distinguish between types of spondylitis on MRI
September 10, 2018 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm can differentiate between tuberculous spondylitis and pyogenic spondylitis on MRI at a level comparable to that of experienced musculoskeletal radiologists, according to research published online September 3 in Scientific Reports.  Discuss
Business models emerge for AI in medical imaging
September 10, 2018 -- Until fairly recently, most medical image analysis software was workstation-based and sold with a one-time software license. However, with the introduction of cloud-based artificial intelligence (AI) solutions, subscription and fee-per-study models are becoming more prevalent, writes Simon Harris from Signify Research.  Discuss
