Vision transformer AI model boosts PET/CT imaging of cancer
This study included imaging from 143 patients with active abdominopelvic cancer and 64 patients without any active cancer who underwent whole-body PET/CT scans at Osaka University Hospital between January 2020 and August 2021.Using this data, the researchers trained a previously developed ViT-B/16 model without modifications to classify the PET/CT images as “positive” or “negative” (malignant or benign). Next, they compared the ViT’s performance with two baseline CNN models, called DenseNet and EfficientNet, on 4,852 test PET/CT images.Predictions and Grad-CAMs of ViT-based models on sample PET/CT, PET, and CT te...

Experts: Consider BMI when imaging patients with chest pain
A patient’s body mass index (BMI) has a significant effect on how much radiation exposure they receive from chest imaging in cases of suspected cardiac ischemia, according to a study published April 9 in the Journal of the American Heart Association. Cardiologists at Saint Luke's Mid America Heart Institute in Kansas City, MO, found that as BMI increases, so too does radiation exposure, although PET offers the least variability, followed by SPECT, and then coronary CT angiography (CCTA). The finding is key to providing “patient-centered” care, the group wrote. “These data may be helpful to generate more accurate ...

SimonMed to integrate Infervision tech into its facilities
SimonMed Imaging is integrating Infervision’s AI-powered InferRead Lung CT.AI technology into its facilities. The move aims to improve the identification of pulmonary nodules and to provide 3D characterization and comparison of nodules. It will be integrated into CT chest scan readings, including those for lung cancer screening. The technology automatically displays boxes around nodules in a new series providing standardized reporting of all nodule characteristics including image number, type of nodule, and volume. It also assesses previous exams to track changes in diameter and volume. In cases where pneumonia is su...
