Neural network trained to interpret chest x-rays

2018 07 Nov

Researchers in the United States trained a convolutional neural network (CNN) – a deep learning technique – to detect signs of pneumonia in chest x-rays from three large U.S. hospital systems, individually and in combination. Overall, the researchers found that the CNN models showed a significant reduction in accuracy when tested on data from outside... Read more

Deep learning tool classifies radiology free-text reports

2018 27 Feb

A recent study evaluated the performance of a deep learning convolutional neural network (CNN) model compared with a traditional natural language processing (NLP) model in extracting pulmonary embolism (PE) findings from thoracic computed tomography (CT) reports from two institutions. The findings show that the new CNN model can classify radiology... Read more
