Imaging Informatics

 

Researchers from the Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands recently presented in Nature Communications a newly developed spectrometer small enough to be inserted into a smartphone, according to an Eindhoven University of Technology release.  

As cyberattack become increasingly common incidents, healthcare professionals must push security to the forefront. In a presentation given at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago, Jim Whitfill, CMO of innovation Health Partners and President of Lumetis, described the current cybersecurity environment and detailed how professionals can take steps toward improving privacy.

Nicole Murphy, MS, a medical physicist at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, and Christina Sammet, PhD, research assistant professor of Radiology at the Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine and medical physicist at Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, targeted three main objectives in relation to radiation dose management at RSNA 2017. 

Artificial intelligence (AI) is here to stay in radiology—and so are radiologists.
