Diagnostic Imaging

Physicians and scientists in Germany have developed an artificial neural network that’s capable of interpreting brain MRI scans to tell physicians how brain tumors are responding to chemotherapy and radiation therapy, according to a study published in The Lancet Oncology.

Researchers have trained an AI algorithm to identify and locate radius and ulna fractures on wrist radiographs with 98 percent sensitivity and 73 percent specificity, on a per study basis. Their findings were published in the Radiological Society of North America’s new journal Radiology: Artificial Intelligence.
