AI vs Humans: Detecting Incidental Pulmonary Embolism on Chest CT

2022 19 Jul

A study was conducted to assess the diagnostic performance of an AI algorithm for detecting incidental pulmonary embolus (iPE) on conventional contrast-enhanced chest CT examinations. Results show that the AI tool had a high negative predictive value (NPV) and moderate positive predictive value (PPV) for detection and was able to find some iPEs that... Read more
