Can AI reliably measure carotid intima-media thickness?
May 25, 2018 -- Artificial intelligence (AI) software that combines deep-learning and machine-learning techniques can measure carotid intima-media thickness more accurately than sonographers can, according to research in the July 1 issue of Computers in Biology and Medicine.  Discuss
AI can detect, assess white-matter lesions on CT scans
May 23, 2018 -- Researchers from the U.K. have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm capable of accurately detecting and rating the severity of brain lesions on CT scans of patients presenting with stroke or dementia, according to an article published online May 15 in Radiology.  Discuss
AI may help overcome barriers to medical 3D printing
May 21, 2018 -- How can artificial intelligence (AI) help ameliorate the high cost and long turnaround time of producing 3D-printed models? One possibility is by automating steps in the 3D printing process, according to a review article published online May 9 in Expert Review of Medical Devices.  Discuss
AI can find, classify pleural effusions on chest x-rays
May 18, 2018 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm has shown promising results for finding and classifying pleural effusion on chest x-ray studies, potentially helping to speed up interpretation times and triage priority cases.  Discuss
Bone scan software predicts prostate cancer survival
May 17, 2018 -- Researchers using automated software to assess bone scintigraphy scans of patients with metastatic prostate cancer found that the algorithm helped them predict which patients were more likely to survive, compared with manual methods of interpreting the scans, according to a May 17 paper in JAMA Oncology.  Discuss
#MyRadGirlfriend No. 63: AI and radiology
May 17, 2018 -- The arrival of artificial intelligence (AI) in radiology can mean different things to different people. In the next installment of #MyRadGirlfriend, Ryan and Andy have very different perspectives on how AI will affect their future career prospects.  Discuss
Radiology leaders must counter hype over AI in radiology
May 16, 2018 -- Radiology leaders must take the lead in educating the imaging community about how artificial intelligence (AI) will augment the work of radiologists rather than take away their jobs, said RSNA President Dr. Vijay Rao at the recent Canadian Association of Radiologists meeting.  Discuss
Will AI cause radiologists to go the way of horses?
May 14, 2018 -- Will radiologists meet the same fate from the advent of artificial intelligence (AI) as horses following the development of machine power? It's possible, according to an opinion article published online May 11 in the Journal of the American College of Radiology.  Discuss
How will AI impact image interpretation process?
May 9, 2018 -- Will artificial intelligence (AI) lead radiologists to begin overcalling potential abnormalities during image interpretation? Not necessarily, if a recent study that assessed the impact of computer-aided detection software on patient recall rates in screening mammography is any indication.  Discuss
New framework facilitates radiology AI algorithms
May 9, 2018 -- How can artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms best be developed and implemented in radiology? A new framework created by the American College of Radiology's Data Science Institute will show the way, according to an article published online May 5 in the Journal of the American College of Radiology.  Discuss
