In a recent video interview, Kathy Schilling, M.D., discussed findings from a study of ProFound AI, an adjunctive artificial intelligence (AI) software for digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT), that demonstrated a 23 percent increase in breast cancer detection in comparison to DBT alone.
Comparing year-long findings with and without adjunctive artificial intelligence (AI) at a breast cancer screening program in Spain, researchers found the combination of digital breast tomosynthesis and AI had a 92.5 percent accuracy for diagnosing cancer in patients with elevated risk.
The new launches include the 80/160-slice computed tomography (CT) scanner Aquilion Serve, which allows simultaneous previews of axial, lateral and AP views, and Celex, a multipurpose X-ray system that offers automated and customizable features to help maximize workflow efficiencies.
Final results of the prospective French CIRTACI trial are in: contrast media for diagnostic imaging are very safe in general, as long as radiologists are vigilant for patients with allergies, asthma, or previous reactions to contrast agents. The vast majority are more itchy than serious.
