The hype over AI has caused great harm in our field, influencing young skulls full of mush to avoid the field altogether, since "AI will take over". The doom and gloom has pervaded the field, and is generally sourced from those who don't understand Radiology and don't care to do so. As Mike puts it with respect to the AI sales presentations: Because very few of these companies have staff who know anything about radiology and cardiology basics, let alone how to integrate AI into the interpretation workflow. I would add that in general, the AI folks don't know what they don't know. And it behooves us in the field to be very well aware of that. 11/20/2019 9:24:09 AMdocholliday126 The last paragraph says AI is ready for stand alone of mammo interpretation. That's not good.... 11/20/2019 10:42:36 AMThePACSman I re-read the article 4 times and didn't see that said but maybe my eyes are decieving me. AI can be used as a valuable tool to aid the mammog...

AbstractPurposeTo compare automated breast volumetric scanning (ABVS) with hand-held bilateral whole breast ultrasound (HHUS) prospectively in regards to patient workflow, woman preference, efficacy in lesion detection, and characterization.Materials and methodsSupplemental screening was performed with both ABVS and HHUS to 345 women with dense breasts and negative mammograms. Acquisition and evaluation times were recorded. Lesions were classified according to BIRADS US criteria and compared one to one. Women were recalled for a secondary HHUS examination if ABVS showed any additional lesions. Findings were compared based ...
Abstract Deep convolutional neural network (DCNN), now popularly called artificial intelligence (AI), has shown the potential to improve over previous computer-assisted tools in medical imaging developed in the past decades. A DCNN has millions of free parameters that need to be trained, but the training sample set is limited in size for most medical imaging tasks so that transfer learning is typically used. Automatic data mining may be an efficient way to enlarge the collected data set but the data can be noisy such as incorrect labels or even a wrong type of images. In this work we studied the generalization err...
Private health insurers spend more than $2 billion a year to screen women in their 40s for breast cancer, though fewer than half those eligible undergo mammograms, a new study shows.

(JAMA Network) Researchers used a large commercial claims database to estimate the percentage of US women in their 40s with private insurance who were eligible and received screening mammography in 2017 and national costs for this screening.
