Can Deep Learning Ultrasound Assessment be a Viable Option for Diagnosing Ovarian Cancer?April 20th 2022
A new study suggests that deep learning algorithms with multimodal ultrasound have comparable specificity and sensitivity to subjective expert assessment and use of the O-RADS classification to distinguish between benign and malignant ovarian tumors.
FDA Issues Advisory on Use of AI and Machine Learning for Large Vessel Occlusion in the BrainApril 15th 2022
The advisory emphasizes that the computer-aided triage and notification (CADt) devices, many of which incorporate artificial intelligence (AI) or machine learning technology, are intended to aid radiologists in prioritizing the assessment of brain imaging that may reveal signs of large vessel occlusion (LVO).
What Does the Future of Certification Look Like?April 4th 2022
Artificial intelligence and other emerging technological advances may transform health-care certification, potentially improving access to best practice standards, increasing provider engagement, and bolstering collaboration.
Fracture Detection: Study Suggests AI Assessment May Be as Effective as Clinician AssessmentApril 1st 2022
The authors of a new meta-analysis found no significant differences between clinicians and artificial intelligence in diagnosing fractures but conceded that slightly over half of the studies assessed had a high risk of potential bias.
Study Offers Closer Look at AI-Enabled Tool for Assessing Breast DensityMarch 21st 2022
The artificial intelligence (AI) model reportedly had an 89.3 accuracy rate in differentiating between non-dense and dense breasts on mammography scans, and a 90.4 percent rate of agreement with human radiologist reviewers.
Could an AI-Powered Enhancement of MRI be a Pre-Op Game Changer for Total Shoulder Arthroplasty?February 28th 2022
A new artificial intelligence tool reportedly overcomes resolution issues of standard magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans with 3D images of the shoulder bones and may eliminate pre-operative use of computed tomography (CT) for total shoulder arthroplasty procedures.
Assessing and Implementing Artificial Intelligence in RadiologyFebruary 21st 2022
In a recent video interview, Nina Kottler, MD, discussed the promise of artificial intelligence (AI) for improving workflow efficiency for radiologists, keys to assessing AI vendors and change management principles for facilitating implementation of AI into one’s practice.
