AI can help predict heart attacks, death on CCTA
June 25, 2019 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm can predict heart attacks and death better on coronary CT angiography (CCTA) studies than risk-assessment methods such as the Coronary Artery Disease Reporting and Data System, according to research published online June 25 in Radiology.  Discuss
AI can improve reproducibility of radiomics in CT
June 24, 2019 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm may be able to help overcome one of the biggest issues limiting the clinical use of radiomics in CT -- the low reproducibility of quantitative imaging features on images from different reconstruction algorithms, according to research published online June 18 in Radiology.  Discuss
