AI can triage chest X-rays in record time

2019 23 Jan

Chest X-rays are the routine 'go-to' test used as the first step in medical protocols to help diagnose multiple issues affecting the lungs, heart, bones and soft tissues. Chest X-rays comprise close to 50 percent of all diagnostic medical imaging performed globally. Consequently, the enormity of volume of these exams creates significant backlogs at... 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
