J. Raymond Geis, MD, senior scientist at the ACR Data Science Institute, spoke with HealthImaging about the recently published multisociety statement on ethical AI in radiology.

The National Cancer Institute—part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH)—has awarded researchers at the University of Arizona Health Sciences $3.6 million to investigate a new imaging-based method to detect breast cancer.

“The radiology community needs an ethical framework to help steer technological development, influence how different stakeholders respond to and use AI, and implement these tools to make the best decisions forand increasingly withpatients," said one of the paper's lead contributors, Raymond Geis, MD.

Mobile x-ray company Trident USA Health Services has reached an $8.5 million civil settlement to resolve allegations that it participated in a kickback scheme with skilled nursing facilities.

Experts have theorized that there is a direct relationship between an individual’s amount of physical activity and the development of changes in the shoulder or hip. A team of UK researchers sought to test this theory by comparing MRI findings from rugby players and ballet dancers to healthy participants, sharing their findings in Clinical Radiology.

The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) has published their first issue of Radiology: Imaging Cancer, a new online journal dedicated to the latest in cancer imaging.

“Knowing that the cancer yield of screening US is similar after DBT versus DM may help inform clinical practice, because questions abound about whether DBT is sufficient screening for women with dense breast tissue," wrote authors of a new study published in the American Journal of Roentgenology.

Metrics based on PET/CT imaging can identify neuroendocrine tumor patients who may benefit from peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) better than traditional imaging-based scoring measures, according to a study published in the September issue of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine.

Researchers out of the U.S. have created an AI smartphone app to automatically identify cardiac devices—such as pacemakers—on chest x-rays, describing their process in JACC: Electrophysiology.

Brain scans contain vast amounts of patient data, some as valuable as that within your DNA. In a recent opinion piece published in Wired, professor of radiology and biomedical imaging at Yale, Evan D. Morris, PhD, argued that we need to do more to protect these valuable images.

Authors of a new study published Sept. 20 in the Journal of Nuclear Medicine argue that gallium-68 (68Ga) prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA)-11 PET/CT imaging can offer additional insight into bone metastases in prostate cancer patients and should be more widely used.

Three chapters published in June by The United States Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) are under appeal and postponed "until further notice."
