This is an example of how artificial intelligence (AI) can help improve patient care by pulling together patient data from numerous sources n the elect if medical records that are specific to a patient’s diagnosis and treatment for a specific disease state. This is Siemens’ AI-Pathway Companion introduced at the Radiological Society Of North America (RSNA) 2018 meeting this week.
There’s a new modality in radiology, one that takes advantage of digital radiography (DR) and reflects the tenets of value-based medicine — low cost, high information and low radiation dose to patients.
The FDA has not cleared this modality, but it has shown promise managing patients suffering from lung dysfunction as well as injury to musculoskeletal tissues.
Although the transition to digital images began with computed radiography (CR), it was the emergence of digital radiography (DR) that is expediting X-ray transformation. The future will bring continued enhancements, advanced capabilities such as AI and the ability to capture motion, addressing global healthcare issues and meeting the goals of higher quality care with greater access at a lower cost.
Patients prefer to receive imaging results as soon as possible, according to new research published in Radiology. They also want that information to come from their physician and over the telephone, not through a patient portal.
Identifying the problems that suppress patient satisfaction can prove as elusive an exercise as formulating the remedies. The creatively collaborative process known as design thinking can help with both.
It will come as no surprise to attendees of RSNA 2018 when Vijay M. Rao, MD, officially kicks off the proceedings by homing in on AI and machine learning during her president’s address on Sunday, November 25, at 8:30 a.m. After all, that topic was the talk of McCormick Place last late November and, since then, it’s only grown in importance to the profession.
From November 25-30, imaging professionals from around the world will convene at Chicago’s vast McCormick Place for the 104th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting for the Radiological Society of North America. This year, roughly 680 vendors, to date, are slated to exhibit their latest and greatest products. Read on to find out what top technologies will be on display.
See the future of healthcare! Join us for lunch and an informative session on the most significant innovation in Radiology in more than three decades. See the future of healthcare, X-Ray in Motion: Changing the Role of Radiology in Pulmonary Function Assessment and Diagnosis. A panel of radiologists and pulmonologists discuss advanced tools that allow radiologists to assess and quantify lung function from x-ray images* (* not cleared by the FDA.)

Overhead Tube Crane (OTC) – This type of system features a ceiling-mounted X-ray tube that moves about the room to treat patients while lying down, sitting or standing, including those in a wheelchair or gurney. It’s easy to use and offers exceptional imaging flexibility so staff can make fast accurate diagnoses. OTC is ideally suited for facilities with a large number and variety of exam types, especially when patients are bedridden.
Though the primary cause for radiology malpractice cases is misdiagnosis, breakdown in communication between radiologists and ordering providers now accounts for a growing proportion of lawsuits, according to a new analysis published in Current Problems in Diagnostic Radiology.
