Enterprise Imaging

Around the web

Many new imaging solutions were on display at the world's largest health informatics conference, held at McCormick Place in Chicago.

Radiologist David Gruen, MD, discusses some of the overarching themes from the Healthcare Information Management Systems Society's annual meeting.

End-users of various radiology IT systems offer their assessment of the software in the annual KLAS Research 2023 Best in KLAS report.

Radiomics can predict major cardiac events using CCTA images

A CCTA-based radiomics method was recently found to be more accurate in identifying potentially problematic plaques than conventional CCTA anatomical parameters alone.

Why is cloud computing is being adopted in radiology? Amy Thompson, a senior analyst at Signify Research, explains what she is seeing in radiology PACS and enterprise imaging system in the market in terms of cloud adoption. She said there has been rising interest in adopting cloud over the past few years, and the COVID pandemic showed amity healthcare systems the value of having a cloud-based system for easier remote access to patient data and imaging.

Cloud storage helps solve radiology IT and cybersecurity issues and is growing

Amy Thompson, a senior analyst at Signify Research, explains why radiology is rapidly adopting cloud data storage solutions.

Chest X-ray. Using an explainable artificial intelligence (AI) model, researchers were recently able to accomplish highly accurate labeling on large datasets of publicly available chest radiograph X-rays.. 

Natural language processing generates CXR captions comparable to those from radiologists

Recent developments in NLP technology have improved its ability to recognize semantics and context, making it more likely that NLP could generate coherent medical reports without radiologist assistance.

Which risk stratification system is best for classifying thyroid nodules?

A new analysis compared the results of 39 published studies and nearly 50,000 patient cases to rank the performances of six different thyroid nodule stratification systems.

Amyloid plaque patterns on PET imaging predict Alzheimer's progression in asymptomatic patients

Experts involved in the new research suggest that identifying these spatiotemporal variations could play an important role in clinical research and precision medicine.

6 tips for integrating NPPs into imaging practice

The role of non-physician practitioners will inevitably continue to grow in healthcare, but how will their presence impact radiology?

An example of an FDA cleared radiology AI algorithm to automatically take a cardiac CT scan and identify, contour and quantify soft plaque in the coronary arteries. The Cleerly software then generates an automated report with images, measurements and a risk assessment for the patient. This type of quantification is too time consuming and complex for human readers to bother with, but AI assisted reports like this may become a new normal over the next decade. Example from Cleerly Imaging at SCCT 2022.

Legal considerations for artificial intelligence in radiology and cardiology

There are now more than 520 FDA-cleared AI algorithms and the majority are for radiology and cardiology, raising the question of who is liable if the AI gets something wrong.

Referring providers want virtual consultations with radiologists

Virtual consultations help diminish the effects of reading room “chaos” owed to frequent interruptions, which can occur up to 27 times per hour for radiologists.
