AI could enhance chest imaging's COVID-19 role
May 11, 2020 -- Artificial intelligence (AI) could enhance the role of chest imaging in the COVID-19 pandemic, moving it beyond disease evaluation to applications such as assessing risk, monitoring treatment, and discovering therapeutic targets, according to an editorial published May 6 in Radiology: Artificial Intelligence.  Discuss
AI predicts Alzheimer's disease using MRI, patient info
May 8, 2020 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) model was able to predict a patient's risk for Alzheimer's disease by analyzing brain MRI exams and nonimaging factors such as age, gender, and cognitive test scores, according to research published online May 1 in Brain.  Discuss
Can AI provide 'nowcasts' for COVID-19 on chest x-rays?
May 5, 2020 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm developed based on concepts commonly employed in economics and meteorology can yield a high level of accuracy for identifying COVID-19 on patients' chest radiographs, according to research from the University of Hong Kong. It also significantly outperformed radiologists.  Discuss
How best can radiology 'appropriately consume' AI?
May 1, 2020 -- The useful integration of artificial intelligence (AI) into clinical practice -- "appropriate consumption" of the technology -- may take longer than initially anticipated, but it will happen, according to an April 30 talk by Dr. Paul Chang at AuntMinnie.com's 2020 Virtual Conference.  Discuss
Collaboration yields brain CT hemorrhage dataset
April 30, 2020 -- It's not easy to create datasets needed to train generalizable artificial intelligence algorithms. For the 2019 RSNA Artificial Intelligence Challenge, it took the teamwork of two societies and 60 volunteer neuroradiologists, according to an article published online April 29 in Radiology: Artificial Intelligence.  Discuss
AI helps distinguish COVID-19 from other pneumonias
April 30, 2020 -- Chinese researchers have found that artificial intelligence (AI) can help clinicians distinguish COVID-19 from other pneumonias on chest CT, according to a study published April 27 in Radiology.  Discuss
AI aids classification of indeterminate lung nodules
April 27, 2020 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm can categorize indeterminate lung nodules on CT better than existing clinical risk models, according to research published online April 24 in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.  Discuss
AI bolsters lesion assessment on breast ultrasound
April 24, 2020 -- An artificial intelligence (AI)-based breast ultrasound software application can enhance the accuracy and consistency of lesion assessment for readers across a wide range of specialties and experience levels, according to research published online April 22 in the American Journal of Roentgenology.  Discuss
AI can speed up measurements of leg length discrepancy
April 23, 2020 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm was able to automate and significantly speed up the simple but labor-intensive task of manually measuring leg length discrepancy on pediatric radiographs, according to research published online April 21 in Radiology.  Discuss
AI can enhance MRI-guided radiation therapy plans
April 21, 2020 -- Artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms can rapidly predict 3D dose distributions for online adaptive MRI-guided radiation therapy plans, enabling swift optimization and quality assessment of these treatments, according to research published online April 19 in the Journal of Applied Clinical Medical Physics.  Discuss
