AI Accurately Predicts Who Will Develop Pancreatic Cancer Based on CT Scans

An AI tool can accurately predict who would develop pancreatic cancer based on what their CT scan images looked like years prior to being diagnosed with the disease. More...

Novel Imaging Technique Could Improve Cancer Screening in Areas with Limited Access to PET Scans

Positron emission tomography (PET) is one of the most widely used diagnostic tools in cancer care. However, PET scans can be hard to access in developing countries and rural areas. Now, researchers have begun testing a new technology that could provide a cheaper, faster imaging approach for areas where access to PET scans is limited. More...

Noncancerous Imaging Markers on Chest CT Performed Before SBRT Improve Survival Prediction

Noncancerous imaging markers on chest CT performed before stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) improve survival prediction, compared with clinical features alone, according to a new study. More...

CT Imaging-Based Assessment of Thoracic Aortic Diameter Useful for Predicting Heart Attacks

A new study has revealed that the diameter of the thoracic aorta is a biomarker for heart attacks and other adverse cardiovascular events in women and men. The study suggests that cardiovascular risk assessment associated with thoracic aortic size among asymptomatic women and men could lead to effective, sex-specific prevention strategies. More...

AI Algorithms Enable Highly Accurate and Cost Effective Medical Image Diagnosis

An engineering team at the University of Hong Kong (HKU, Hong Kong) has developed a new approach “REFERS” (Reviewing Free-text Reports for Supervision), which can cut human cost down by 90%, by enabling the automatic acquisition of supervision signals from hundreds of thousands of radiology reports at the same time. More...

AI System Quantifies Lung Lesions and Airway Volumes on CT Imaging in IPF Patients

Scientists have developed an artificial intelligence (AI)-based image analysis software to detect parenchymal and airway abnormalities on computed tomography (CT) imaging of the chest and to explore their prognostic importance in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). More...

MRI/PET Scans Link Brainstem Atrophy to Dementia Symptoms

Frontotemporal dementia, FTD, comes with extrapyramidal symptoms, such as those in Parkinson’s disease, and this makes the diagnosis of FTD challenging. However, a new study now shows that accurate imaging and analysis of the brain may make it possible to distinguish between FTD and other diseases that cause extrapyramidal symptoms. More...
