AI characterizes breast masses on ultrasound
March 21, 2019 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm distinguished between benign and malignant masses on breast ultrasound at a high level of accuracy -- perhaps even exceeding the diagnostic performance of less-experienced radiologists, according to research published online March 19 in the Japanese Journal of Radiology.  Discuss
Video from GTC 2019: Dr. Christopher Hess asks 3 questions for AI developers
March 20, 2019 -- SAN JOSE, CA - Do the developers of artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms really understand radiology? There are three questions AI developers should consider when they start developing AI for medical imaging, according to Dr. Christopher Hess, PhD, chair of the radiology department at the University of California, San Francisco, who spoke at this week's Nvidia GPU Technology Conference (GTC 2019).  Discuss
AI, radiomics can help predict chemotherapy response
March 20, 2019 -- Artificial intelligence (AI) and radiomics can identify which non-small cell lung cancer patients are likely to respond to chemotherapy, potentially enabling likely nonresponders to be shifted to alternative treatments, according to research published online March 20 in Radiology: Artificial Intelligence.  Discuss
