C-MIMI: AI could cut mammography workload in half
September 23, 2019 -- AUSTIN, TX - An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm could cut in half the number of screening mammograms that need to be interpreted by radiologists by directing them only to cases most likely to contain cancer, according to research presented on Sunday at the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine's Conference on Machine Intelligence in Medical Imaging (C-MIMI).  Discuss
ISCT: Will AI for CT be radiology's killer app?
September 23, 2019 -- SAN DIEGO - While artificial intelligence (AI) has been generating buzz in radiology, a "killer app" for AI in medical imaging has yet to emerge. Dr. Eliot Siegel believes that killer app could be the use of AI for processing CT data, according to a talk at the 2019 International Society for Computed Tomography (ISCT) meeting.  Discuss
Can AI screen for nonalcoholic fatty liver disease?
September 20, 2019 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm was able to automatically quantify liver fat on abdominal CT images in a new study, according to research published online September 17 in Radiology. The findings may potentially enable patients who are undergoing CT scans for other indications to also be screened for nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).  Discuss
ASTRO: AI predicts side effects from radiation therapy
September 17, 2019 -- CHICAGO - Researchers developed an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm that was able to predict which patients were likely to experience side effects after radiation therapy for head and neck cancer, according to a study presented Monday at the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) meeting.  Discuss
AI detects pulmonary nodules on chest x-rays
September 16, 2019 -- A computer-aided detection software application based on artificial intelligence (AI) is able to identify pulmonary nodules quickly and accurately on chest x-rays, offering potential to serve as a triage or second-reading tool for radiologists, according to research published online September 11 in Clinical Radiology.  Discuss
AI can differentiate parkinsonism on DWI-MRI
September 13, 2019 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm can distinguish between parkinsonian syndromes on diffusion-weighted MRI (DWI-MRI) exams at an accuracy level comparable to that of current gold-standard methods, according to research recently published online in Lancet Digital Health.  Discuss
Google inks AI partnership with Mayo Clinic
September 12, 2019 -- Google and the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, have inked a 10-year strategic partnership involving artificial intelligence (AI), cloud computing, and data analytics.  Discuss
AI analysis of FFR-CT shows value -- in men
September 11, 2019 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm that estimated fractional flow reserve (FFR-CT) on coronary CT angiography outperformed visual stenosis scoring by clinicians for detecting lesion-specific ischemia in men -- but not women, according to research published online September 7 in the European Journal of Radiology.  Discuss
AI, radiomics predict prostate cancer aggressiveness
September 10, 2019 -- The combination of an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm and radiomics can accurately and automatically predict the aggressiveness of prostate cancer on dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI exams prior to biopsy, according to research published online September 5 in Clinical Radiology.  Discuss
Are studies on AI for tuberculosis really valid?
September 6, 2019 -- Many research studies reporting on the diagnostic accuracy of artificial intelligence (AI)-based software for detecting pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) on chest x-rays include design shortcomings that call into question how well the algorithms would work in the real world, according to an analysis published online September 3 in PLOS One.  Discuss
