Can AI diagnose pneumonia better than radiologists?
November 17, 2017 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm developed by Stanford University researchers can detect 14 types of medical conditions on chest x-ray images, and it's even able to diagnose pneumonia better than expert radiologists, according to a paper published November 14 on arXiv.org.  Discuss
Deep learning shows promise for bone age assessment
November 16, 2017 -- A deep-learning convolutional neural network algorithm can estimate skeletal maturity on pediatric hand radiographs as accurately as expert radiologists -- and nearly as accurately as a commercial computer-aided diagnosis software application, according to research published online in Radiology.  Discuss
Deep learning differentiates liver masses on CT
November 10, 2017 -- A deep-learning approach using a convolutional neural network can accurately classify liver masses into five categories based on dynamic contrast-enhanced CT images, according to research from Japan published online recently in Radiology.  Discuss
Artificial intelligence may help bridge experience gap for liver CEUS
November 9, 2017 -- Can a computer-aided diagnosis system based on machine learning characterize focal liver lesions on contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) cine clips as accurately as an expert reader? It's certainly possible, if research published online recently in Radiology is any indication.  Discuss
Machine learning helps predict exam wait times, delays
November 6, 2017 -- Accurately predicting how long patients may have to wait for their imaging exams is key for both practice management and patient satisfaction. Machine learning may be able to help, according to a study published online October 24 in the Journal of the American College of Radiology.  Discuss
Can deep learning prevent unnecessary thyroid biopsies?
November 2, 2017 -- Approximately 90% of biopsies performed on thyroid nodules have benign findings. Deep learning may help many of these patients avoid unnecessary procedures, according to a research team from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, and Arizona State University.  Discuss
