What a New Study Reveals About Breast Density Awareness

January 06, 2023

In a recent interview from the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) conference, Mary Yamashita, M.D. discussed a variety of findings from a survey of over 8,000 women about breast density awareness, challenges with current breast density notification after mammography exams, and the ongoing need to educate patients as well as referring providers on breast density awareness.

Recognizing and Addressing Biases with AI and Radiologists

December 20, 2022

In a video interview discussing one of her recent lectures at the Radiological Society for North America (RSNA) conference, Nina Kottler, M.D., M.S., noted how the combination of artificial intelligence (AI) and radiologist experience can help mitigate bias limitations with the development of AI algorithms as well as educational biases inherent to a radiologist’s training and experience.

Meta-Analysis Assesses Impact of PSMA PET Imaging on Treatment Outcomes for Prostate Cancer Recurrence

December 14, 2022

In an interview at the recent Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) conference, Alex Pozdnyakov, M.D. discussed findings from a new meta-analysis, which revealed that prostate-specific membrane antigen/positron emission tomography (PSMA PET) imaging in patients with prostate cancer recurrence led to treatment changes that resulted in a pooled 60.2 percent rate of prostate cancer-free survival at 20 months.

Maximizing Cloud-Based Capabilities in Radiology

December 13, 2022

In a recent interview at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) conference, Eliot Siegel, M.D., discussed a variety of potential benefits with cloud-based image management in radiology, ranging from enhanced data security and economies of scale to improved access to a variety of artificial intelligence (AI) solutions to increase efficiency.

Emerging Insights on Improving Radiology Workflows

December 09, 2022

In a recent video interview from the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) conference, Tessa Cook, MD, PhD discussed new research on automated de-identification in radiology reports and the potential of artificial intelligence (AI) and natural language processing (NLP) to help address time-consuming challenges in the radiology workflow.

Can AI Improve the Consistency of Breast Density Assessment by Radiologists?

December 06, 2022

In a recent video interview, Susan Holley, MD discussed key findings from a large retrospective longitudinal study, presented at the recent Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) conference, which found that an emerging artificial intelligence (AI) model was over 24 percent more consistent than radiologist assessment of breast density.

What BI-RADS Changes Are on the Way for Breast MRI Reporting?

December 02, 2022

In a recent lecture at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) conference, Wendy DeMartini, MD, discussed a variety of preliminary proposed changes to the Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS) for breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examinations.

Can MRI-Based Prostate Cancer Screening be a Viable Alternative to PSA Testing?

December 01, 2022

In what may be the first study to assess the effectiveness of biparametric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for prostate cancer screening in a large cohort, researchers found that MRI screening had a significantly lower false positive rate and significantly higher positive predictive values (PPVs) than prostate-specific antigen (PSA)-based screening.
