3 ways AI could be integrated into radiology workflow
August 24, 2018 -- As radiology artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms move toward clinical use, there are three possible models for how AI will best fit into the specialty's workflow, according to a talk on Thursday at the U.S. National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering's Artificial Intelligence in Medical Imaging workshop.  Discuss
Facebook, NYU feel need for MRI speed with AI
August 24, 2018 -- Can less really be more in MRI? Facebook and New York University (NYU) intend to find out with the launch of fastMRI, a collaborative project that aims -- with the help of artificial intelligence (AI) -- to make MRI scans up to 10 times faster by reconstructing diagnostic-quality images using much less raw data.  Discuss
Cinematic rendering bolsters AI for depth estimation on endoscopy
August 21, 2018 -- The photorealistic quality of cinematically rendered CT scans may reduce the amount of imaging data needed to train artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms for medical endoscopy applications, according to an August 16 accepted manuscript in Physics in Medicine and Biology.  Discuss
AI, new cardiac imaging technology can assess for CAD
August 20, 2018 -- The combination of artificial intelligence (AI) and a new noninvasive cardiac imaging technique can perform comparably to current imaging tests used to detect coronary artery disease (CAD) -- without requiring cardiac stress, contrast agents, or radiation exposure, according to research published recently in PLOS One.  Discuss
AI algorithm can triage head CT exams for urgent review
August 14, 2018 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm can prescreen head CT exams for a range of acute neurological events such as stroke, hemorrhage, or acute hydrocephalus, enabling triage of cases that require urgent review by radiologists, according to research published online August 13 in Nature Medicine.  Discuss
