Does radiology have a bright future?

2018 23 May

Do AI and machine learning herald the end of radiology?   I could answer in one word: Yes. But HealthManagement has given me 700 and I’m delighted to have the opportunity to expand my hypothesis.   I might as well start with the “elephant in the room”. How many radiologists cringed when they read President Obama’s assertion that “radiologists are losing... Read more

Machine learning predicts which patients benefit from prostate mpMRI

2018 02 Apr

Multiparametric MRI (mpMRI) is a novel imaging tool that is increasingly used for prostate cancer detection. Key obstacles to routine use of prostate MRI include quality control, cost and access. To optimise resource utilisation and reduce unnecessary costs, a new machine learning model has been developed for identifying which patients could benefit... Read more

Supervised machine learning predicts CLABSI

2018 06 Mar

Machine learning has proven to be useful for developing prediction models for outcomes in intensive care unit patients. A new study comparing machine learning techniques for predicting central line-associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI) shows supervised artificial intelligence can accurately predict CLABSI in patients admitted to the ICU. Early identification... Read more

Machine learning unpicks the lexical complexity of radiology reports

2018 22 Feb

In a recent study conducted at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York, researchers used machine learning (ML) techniques to identify clinical concepts in radiologist reports for CT scans (Zech et al. 2018).  These techniques include natural language processing algorithms and demonstrate an important first step in the development of...

AI and ML applications in healthcare

2018 20 Feb

From the algorithm development sandbox to the clinical wilderness.Today, far too many articles and blog posts suggest that artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) is some sort of magic pill that can easily be taken to ensure that all and any problems within healthcare will disappear overnight. However, change is difficult and often a... Read more
