Researchers from the National Institutes of Health, Radiological Society of North America, American College of Radiology and Academy for Radiology and Biomedical Imaging Research have published what they’re calling a “roadmap for AI” in medical imaging—a framework for accelerating foundational research in the field.

Using dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI, researchers found quantitatively mapping a patient’s blood-brain barrier dysfunction (BBBD) may be valuable for risk stratification and stroke prevention after a transient ischemic attack (TIA).

Representatives from numerous healthcare organizations gathered in 2018 and developed a new document focused on helping researchers use AI algorithms in radiology to improve patient care. 

Researchers from the University of California, Los Angeles, have developed an artificial neural network capable of identifying and diagnosing prostate cancer almost as well as radiologists with a decade of experience.

More than 80% of stable patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) are treated in the intensive care unit despite only 16% of them experiencing complications that require an ICU stay, according to a U.S. registry analysis published in JACC: Cardiovascular Interventions.

The American College of Physicians (ACP) published a position paper April 16 in the Annals of Internal Medicine, voicing their discontent with recent federal actions to weaken the Affordable Care Act and offering seven recommendations on how to improve it.

CT colonography (CTC) achieved a similar positive predictive value (PPV) as colonoscopy during colon cancer screening and can help clinicians care for patients by specifying the nature of exam findings, according to a new study published in the American Journal of Roentgenology.

Researchers have found that low-intensity ultrasound can change decision-making processes in the brain, sharing their findings in Nature Neuroscience.

Radiologist Debra S. Dyer, MD, has joined the GO2 Foundation for Lung Cancer, a new patient advocacy group, as a member of its Scientific Leadership Board.

The Heart Rhythm Society's 2019 scientific sessions will be held May 8-11 in San Francisco, a venue that enabled the program committee to tap into Silicon Valley’s expertise with digital health, emerging technology and innovation. HRS.19 Program Director Christine Albert, MD, MPH, gave Cardiovascular Business a preview of meeting highlights.

Researchers at Tel Aviv University in Israel have 3D-printed what they said is the first vascularized heart using a patient’s own cells and biological materials.

Michigan-based startup HistoSonics raised $54 million in its Series C funding round to support the noninvasive Robotically Assisted Sonic Therapy (RAST) platform, an AI solution that combines advanced robotics and imaging to destroy unwanted tissue.
