GTC: Topol sees AI fostering empathy in healthcare
March 20, 2019 -- SAN JOSE, CA - The ever-expanding clinical application of artificial intelligence (AI) is changing the face of healthcare -- not only extending the scale of medicine's influence on society but also fostering deeper empathy among clinicians, Dr. Eric Topol said in a March 19 talk at the GPU Technology Conference (GTC).  Discuss
Video from GTC 2019: New developments in AI give boost to healthcare
March 20, 2019 -- SAN JOSE, CA - What's going on at the cutting edge of artificial intelligence (AI)? You'll find out this week if you're at Nvidia's GPU Technology Conference (GTC 2019), where the latest advances in AI are being showcased across a range of industries. We caught up with Abdul Hamid Halabi, global lead for healthcare at Nvidia, to find out what the GPU hardware developer has in store for radiology.  Discuss
AI can predict cognitive development from MRI at birth
March 19, 2019 -- By analyzing the white-matter connections of an infant's brain at birth on MRI, an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm can predict the level of cognitive development at age 2 -- offering the potential to facilitate early interventions in at-risk children, according to research published in the May 15 issue of NeuroImage.  Discuss
What do patients think about radiology AI?
March 19, 2019 -- What do patients know about the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in radiology? While they may not understand much about the technology, they do have some thoughts on the subject, according to a qualitative study published online March 14 in the Journal of the American College of Radiology.  Discuss
Automated algorithms track adherence to follow-up advice
March 15, 2019 -- An algorithm based on natural language processing was able to analyze radiology reports for text that recommended follow-up imaging, while a second algorithm determined whether patients followed the recommendations, according to an article published online March 12 in the American Journal of Roentgenology.  Discuss
AI may help women with ductal hyperplasia avoid surgery
March 15, 2019 -- New York City researchers found that an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm that analyzed mammography data was able to help determine which patients with pure atypical ductal hyperplasia may safely be monitored with imaging rather than proceed to surgical excision, according to a study published online March 12 in the American Journal of Roentgenology.  Discuss
AI can reduce mammography screening's workload
March 14, 2019 -- Artificial intelligence (AI) could effectively reduce the workload involved in reading mammography screening exams by eliminating studies most likely to be normal from the radiologist's worklist, according to a presentation delivered at ECR 2019 in Vienna.  Discuss
Practical considerations of AI: Part 1 -- Paying for AI
March 13, 2019 -- Artificial intelligence (AI) has generated much excitement and hype in radiology, but there are crucial real-world issues that will affect adoption of the technology. In the first of a new series of articles, consultant Michael J. Cannavo -- the PACSman -- delves into the all-important money matters.  Discuss
Accuracy of AI algorithms may drop with independent data
March 13, 2019 -- The performance of artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms for classifying chest x-rays dropped when they were used with patient populations that were different from the ones on which they were trained, according to research published online March 5 in the Journal of Digital Imaging.  Discuss
Mammo AI software yields workflow, economic benefits
March 12, 2019 -- A computer-aided detection (CAD) algorithm based on artificial intelligence (AI) proved to be better than traditional CAD in helping radiologists detect breast cancer. The AI-based CAD could also improve efficiency and increase revenues, according to research presented at ECR 2019 in Vienna.  Discuss
