RSNA 2019: AI Helps Find Signs of Heart Disease on Lung Cancer Screens

2019 04 Dec

  With the help of artificial intelligence (AI), researchers have developed a tool that automatically measures coronary artery calcium – an important marker of heart disease – on chest CT images, according to a study being presented this week at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA).     You might also...

Deep Learning Improves Lung Cancer Detection from X-rays

2019 18 Nov

New research led by South Korean radiologists provides further proof as to how artificial intelligence can help improve diagnosis of lung cancer using medical imaging.   Radiologists performed better in detecting malignant lung cancers on chest x-rays when they read images with deep-learning based software, according to the research published...

Collapsed Lung Scans: New Technology Offers Accurate Reads

2019 24 Oct

New assistive technology developed by University of Waterloo researchers has been shown to be useful in diagnosing collapsed lungs from chest x-rays, with better accuracy than radiologists. The AI-driven system could serve as a “computational second opinion” for clinicians given that evaluation of this condition can at times be difficult. You... Read more

Google & Northwestern: AI finds cancer before radiologists

2019 21 May

Google and Northwestern scientists show precision of new deep learning system to predict lung cancer An artificial intelligence system, using deep learning, successfully detected malignant lung nodules on low-dose chest computed tomography (LDCT) scans, performing equal to, or better than expert radiologists, according to a new study from...

Should lung cancer screening include persons not meeting CHEST criteria?

2018 12 Jun

A significant reduction (20 percent) in lung cancer mortality reduction is attributable to annual screening with low-dose CT imaging. In 2013, the American College of Chest Physicians (CHEST) published their guidelines that endorse low-dose CT screening for patients aged 55 to 74 years with at least a 30 pack-year smoking history. The guidelines... Read more

Lung cancer: differentiating metastatic from nonmetastatic lymph nodes

2017 26 Sep

New research demonstrates that dynamic first-pass contrast-enhanced (CE) perfusion area-detector CT (ADCT) is as useful as FDG PET/CT for the differentiation of metastatic from nonmetastatic lymph nodes and assessment of N stage in patients with non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC). In addition, researchers found that using mathematic methods and... Read more
