Yeah, AI in Imaging is Great, But Does it Make MORE Work?

2021 20 Jul

Although AI has been regarded as a tool for decreasing the workload of radiologists, a recent Dutch study shows that most current AI applications in medical imaging may have the opposite effect.  Recent developments in artificial intelligence (AI) for radiology appear more likely to add to the workload of radiologists than reduce it, Dutch researchers...

AI uses ECG and X-ray Results to diagnose Arrhythmic Disorders

2021 10 May

Researchers from the Kobe University Hospital, Japan, have developed an AI that uses multiple types of test data to predict the location of surplus pathways in the heart. These “accessory pathways” cause the heart to beat irregularly.   In this study on “Accessory pathway analysis using a multimodal deep learning model” published in Scientific Reports,... Read more

AI to support Breast Tomosynthesis Image Interpretation

2021 09 May

Digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) is increasingly used in breast cancer screening, as it increases sensitivity of mammography. Due to the large number of images, reading errors occur as well as an increase in reading time.   This is based on findings from a study on the “Impact of artificial intelligence support on accuracy and reading time in breast...

Diagnosing Prostate Cancer Using Artificial Intelligence

2021 25 Jan

Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers among men. Patients are determined to have prostate cancer based on Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA), a prostate-specific antigen used as an index for the screening of prostate cancer. However, diagnostic accuracy for prostate cancer is as low as 30%. That is why a large number of patients have to undergo... Read more
