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
AI can optimize treatment of glioblastoma
August 14, 2018 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm can reduce dosing levels for chemotherapy and radiotherapy for glioblastoma without affecting the effectiveness of the treatments, according to a study being presented this week at the 2018 Machine Learning for Healthcare conference at Stanford University.  Discuss
AI developer MaxQ-AI files papers for $8M public offering
August 14, 2018 -- Artificial intelligence (AI) software developer MaxQ-AI has filed papers with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for an initial public offering of just over $8 million. The company plans to use the funds to commercialize its Accipio family of AI algorithms for analyzing head CT scans to rule out stroke.  Discuss
New opportunities emerge for AI in medical imaging
August 13, 2018 -- The promise of artificial intelligence (AI) for medical image analysis may draw most of the attention, but AI has the potential to enhance the entire medical imaging process and enable "intelligent" imaging systems, according to market research firm Frost & Sullivan.  Discuss
AI characterizes complex mood disorders from fMRI
August 9, 2018 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm can distinguish patients with major depressive disorder from those who have bipolar disorder based on an analysis of functional MRI (fMRI) studies, according to research published online August 6 in Acta Psychiatrica Scandinavica.  Discuss
3 ways to ensure AI algorithms are really working
August 6, 2018 -- Artificial intelligence (AI), deep learning, and related technologies have emerged as solutions that can really make a difference in almost every medical field imaginable, from radiology to pharmaceuticals to diagnosis. But the question remains: How do we know that these algorithms are actually working?  Discuss
Medical imaging AI market primed for growth
August 2, 2018 -- The world market for artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning in medical imaging is set for robust growth and is forecast to top $2 billion by 2023. The sector holds great promise, but barriers must be overcome before AI becomes mainstream, writes industry analyst Simon Harris.  Discuss
Can AI best quantitative MRI in prostate lesions?
August 2, 2018 -- Quantitative measurement of prostate MRI exams can yield better lesion characterization performance than just qualitative assessment by radiologists, German researchers have found. But can machine learning do even better? At least for now, the answer is no, according to a study published online July 31 in Radiology.  Discuss
Ultralow-dose CT with CAD helps detect lung nodules
August 1, 2018 -- An ultralow-dose CT protocol involving computer-aided detection (CAD) matched the accuracy of standard CT for identifying lung nodules at just 10% of the radiation dose of a standard scan, according to an article published online July 25 in the Journal of Thoracic Imaging.  Discuss
