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.

Enterprise imaging (EI) is one of the most important areas of focus in modern healthcare, especially in image-heavy specialties such as radiology and cardiology. A new webinar from the teams at  Health Exec and Change Healthcare, “Realizing the Value of Enterprise Imaging: 5 Key Strategies for Success,” examined the value of EI and why healthcare providers need to treat it so seriously. 

Nearly 200 unprotected computer servers full of medical data have been identified throughout the United States. The discovery, part of a new report from ProPublica and Bayerischer Rundfunk, covers the data of more than 5 million Americans.

When physicians place orders for imaging examinations, they often leave out key information that could help the radiologist provide better patient care. The authors of a new analysis published in the European Journal of Radiology have proposed a standardized grading system, the Reason for exam Imaging Reporting and Data System (RI-RADS), that could combat this issue.

Natural language processing (NLP) and machine learning can help track when free-text radiology reports include follow-up imaging recommendations, according to a new study published in the Journal of Digital Imaging.

Researchers have developed an algorithm that identifies if follow-up imaging recommendations are adhered to or not, sharing their findings in the Journal of Digital Imaging.

 

Audiovisual radiology reports can provide significant value when used in addition to traditional reports, according to new findings published by the Journal of Digital Imaging.

The American College of Radiology (ACR) has shared more information about the 2019 Imaging Informatics Summit, noting that the event is focused on the direct impact AI technologies and data can have on patient care.

Two different AI-based methods can identify patients with implantable devices that could pose a safety risk during MRI scans, according to research published in the Journal of the American College of Radiology.
