ACR and MICCAI to Develop AI Algorithms for Clinical Radiology

The American College of Radiology and the Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention Society are working together to develop artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms to better meet the clinical needs of radiologists. The ACR is actively creating use cases for imaging AI and will work with MICCAI to leverage this knowledge base in MICCAI’s imaging AI competitions. The ACR Data Science Institute (ACR DSI) is actively working on technically-oriented use cases (TOUCH-AI) which will help algorithm vendors identify and target areas that have the greatest clinical impact, as well as strategies to ensure appropriate validation pre-deployment (CERTIFY-AI) and ongoing monitoring while in the clinical setting (ASSESS-AI).

Ultrasound Helmet Designed for Live Images and Brain-Machine Interface

A team of researchers from Vanderbilt University plan to create a brain-machine interface using an ultrasound helmet and electroencephalogram (EEG) that would allow doctors to view images as clear as those of the heart or womb. By using ultrasound technology for the brain, doctors could not only view real-time images during surgery, but also gain a better understanding of which areas become stimulated by certain feelings or actions. The ultrasound helmet would ultimately provide an effective way for people to control software and robotics by thinking about it. More...

AI Device for Diabetic Retinopathy Receives FDA Approval

The first-ever medical device to use artificial intelligence (AI) for detecting diabetic retinopathy has received marketing approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The AI-based diagnostic system named IDx-DR, which has been developed by privately-held AI diagnostics company IDx, is the first device to be authorized for marketing that provides a screening decision without the need for a clinician to also interpret the image or results. This means that the device can also be used by health care providers who may not normally be involved in eye care. More...
