Imaging Informatics

The Washington Post revealed the last-minute decision—which occurred in 2017, but was never reported—in a story published Friday, Nov. 15. 

Presagen announced Oct. 30 the launch of its AI Open Projects platform, a tool that allows radiology practices worldwide to share images and help to build AI products that are “robust, scalable and unbiased.” 

Those involved said that such access is crucial for early cancer detection, and will hopefully help to avoid any unnecessary, duplicative testing in the future. 

Imaging informaticists can make a big impact on AI strategies, according to a new analysis published in Academic Radiology.

Commercially available face recognition software accurately identified patient’s based solely on their brain MRI scans. The findings suggest more resources must be put into securing imaging data.

Using CT to image skulls of humans, chimpanzees and gorillas, and tapping MRI to render brain volumes and structures, scientists in Switzerland have uncovered new clues to the trajectory of human evolution.

Playing videogames during breaktimes reduces activation in the brain’s supplementary motor area, and the falloff shows up in findings on fMRI and as poorer functional performance in short-term memory tests when people get back to work.

Women initially deemed to have a less than 2% chance of developing breast cancer often skip the recommended follow-up MRI six months later. Johns Hopkins researchers are attempting to understand why, and recently published some early insights into the issue.

The Medical Imaging & Technology Alliance (MITA) is giving radiologists an assist in efforts to address device-related cybersecurity concerns at their practices. 

Shared decision-making (SDM) plays a key role in patient-centered care. And according to a new analysis published in the American Journal of Roentgenology, it’s a process radiologists can be more involved in than they may think.

Siemens Healthineers announced Thursday, Sept. 26, that it has received FDA clearance for three modules of the company’s AI-Rad Companion Chest CT software.

Every patient’s medical history should include a “Past Imaging History” section specifically designed to provide context about their health, according to a new commentary published in Current Problems in Diagnostic Radiology.
