In a recent paper from consulting firm Deloitte, experts argue that evolving digital technology—notably artificial intelligence (AI)—has the potential to create jobs in many areas of healthcare, including diagnostic radiology.
In a recent editorial published in The New York Times Magazine, Abraham Verghese, MD, a professor of internal medicine at Stanford, explained that the popularity of electronic health records (EHRs) and the emergence of artificial intelligence (AI) in medicine may be overriding physicians' own clinical judgement more than helping to inform it.
A former Colorado neurologist is being sued for malpractice and fraud after allegedly purposely falsely interpreting MRIs and misdiagnosing more than two dozen patients in Colorado and Florida with multiple sclerosis (MS), according to an article published May 7 by Summit Daily in Summit County, Colorado.
In a recent interview with the American College of Radiology Bulletin, Efren J. Flores, MD, a radiologist at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, discussed the challenges and opportunities radiologists face when patients with apparent substance use disorders enter the emergency department.
The American College of Radiology Thyroid Imaging and Reporting Data System (ACR TI-RADS) outlines risk stratification and management of thyroid nodules based on ultrasound features, but biopsy recommendations remain variable amongst radiologists.
When performing radiotherapy treatment for lung or esophageal cancer, making small adjustments to a patient's positioning can reduce the amount of unintentional damage to the patient's heart, according to an ESTRO press release.
Molly Fausone is a third-year medical student at the University of Michigan—she's also paralyzed from the chest down. Despite her physical limits, a new device allows her to perform full-body patient exams with limited physical contact, according to a University of Michigan press release.
A misconfigured security setting on a radiology interface at Middletown Medical, a multi-specialty physicians group in New York, led to a security breach exposing patient data, including radiology images, reports and Social Security numbers, according to HIPPA Journal.
Radiologist requisitions are the primary means of acquiring clinical information and have been shown to improve diagnosis. But new research suggests the quality of clinical information in these forms is declining.
Medical imaging devices require large amounts of energy, and that costs money. A recent blog post by the Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) examined what leaders need to know about how they are billed for energy and what facilities can do to cut costs.
According to a study published in the Journal of the American College of Radiology, CESM may be easier to implement into clinical workflow by decreasing equipment and patient setup times related to contrast administration.
A new study led by researchers at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania found the longer patients with positive cancer screening results wait for diagnostic testing, the worse their outcome.
Radiology staffing shortages are hitting Waikato Hospital in New Zealand. Its workforce problem led a department of health board executive to label the unit as “vulnerable” and has prompted the hospital to look for imaging specialist overseas, according to an April 5 article in Stuff.
Deep learning and artificial intelligence (AI) are often associated with identifying nodules and classifying images, but a recent study found convolutional neural networks (CNNs) can be utilized in radiology workflows to determine musculoskeletal MRI protocols.
