Chest x-ray interpretation: radiographers and radiologists compared

2018 09 May

Chest x-rays (CXR) are one of the most frequently requested imaging examinations and are fundamental to many patient pathways. New research examining the diagnostic accuracy of CXR interpretation by reporting radiographers (technologists) shows they are able to interpret CXRs at a level comparable to consultant radiologists. Chest radiographs are... Read more

AI to enhance, not replace, radiologists' jobs

2018 02 Apr

Rapid advances in artificial intelligence, including deep learning, are a major factor behind improvements in medical image analysis. Some deep learning models have shown their ability to identify pathologies in radiological images such as bone fractures and potentially cancerous lesions, in some cases more reliably than an average radiologist. With... Read more
