POCUS used widely in lung ultrasound applications
Some of the top "domains" of point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) incorporate the technology into lung ultrasound applications, according to research published in the Journal of Radiology Nursing. A team led by the POCUS Certification Academy, part of Inteleos in Rockville, MD, published a list of the top 25 POCUS community-defined practice domains, dubbed “POCUS25.” They found via survey data that the POCUS community believes the most important domains are tied to imaging of the pneumothorax, pericardial effusion and cardiac tamponade detection, normal lung ultrasound, basic practical physics, and extended focused assess...

AI improves performance of nonradiologists in chest imaging
AI improves chest x-ray imaging interpretation by nonradiologist practitioners, which could be useful in low-resource settings, according to research published January 29 in Chest. A team led by Jan Rudolph, MD, from University Hospital, LMU Munich in Germany found that a convolutional neural network (CNN)-based AI system focusing on chest x-rays improved the performance of nonradiologists in diagnosing several chest pathologies. “In an emergency unit setting without 24/7 radiology coverage, the presented AI solution features an excellent clinical support tool to nonradiologists, similar to a second reader, and allows ...

AuntMinnie.com X-Ray Insider
Dear Digital X-Ray Insider,RSNA 2023 wrapped up in Chicago recently, with a bevy of digital x-ray studies presented at the meeting. We’ve featured one more here: an AI study conducted in Zambia testing an algorithm developed by Google to detect tuberculosis on chest x-rays. The model performed well, and you can read about the study in this issue’s featured article. As expected, AI studies took most of the top headlines from RSNA 2023. The mood at the meeting may have been summed up most succinctly by Sean Raj, MD, of outpatient radiology group SimonMed Imaging: “We’re going all in on AI,” he said, in a presentat...

AI improves x-ray reads for rads with varying experience
AI assistance can improve the detection accuracy of thoracic abnormalities on chest x-rays across radiologists with varying levels of expertise, according to a study published December 12 in Radiology. In a retrospective study, a commercially available algorithm (ChestView, v. 1.2.0, Gleamer) increased sensitivity for detecting all abnormalities on x-rays for all readers (thoracic radiologists, general radiologists, and radiology residents), according to a group of Gleamer consultants and clinicians at Cochin Hospital in Paris.“Our findings suggest that artificial intelligence assistance in chest radiograph interpretatio...

Can open-source AI algorithms help clinical deployment?
A group in the U.K. has developed neural networks for interpreting chest x-rays that could help speed the adoption of AI systems in clinical settings, according to a study published December 8 in The Lancet Digital Health. In a retrospective cohort study, the researchers developed X-Raydar-NLP (natural language processing) and X-Raydar, deep neural networks that can accurately classify 37 common chest x-ray findings from images and their free-text reports. Moreover, they have made the neural networks available to others.“By making our model freely available, we hope to accelerate the adoption of automated systems in cli...

Bering gets FDA nod for AI chest x-ray software
London-based medical AI company Bering Limited has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance for its BraveCX AI-powered chest x-ray triage software. BraveCX is a computer-assisted triage and notification software that analyzes adult (≥ 18 years old) chest x-rays for the presence of prespecified suspected findings. The product was developed on over 1 million chest x-rays and has yielded an area under the curve of 0.96 for pleural effusion and 0.98 for pneumothorax in testing, the company said.

AI assist for x-ray reads serves nonradiologists well in the ED
CHICAGO -- German researchers are testing ways to support nonradiologists in interpreting chest x-rays in emergency settings using an AI assistant.Presenting the research on November 28 at RSNA 2023, Jan Rudolph, MD, from the department of radiology at University Hospital LMU Munich said nonradiologists can significantly benefit from AI assistance in emergency-related chest x-ray analysis.“If you go to the periphery, to smaller hospitals in the periphery, there's basically the duty doctors from internal medicine or surgery departments that have to analyze the chest x-rays,” Rudolph explained. “So we were thinking and...

3 AI-based technology trends on display at the 2023 RSNA conference
Vincent Chan.The topic of AI will once again be infused throughout sessions and on display in the exhibitor hall at this year’s RSNA scientific assembly and annual meeting. The need for imaging modalities to support an earlier, more accurate diagnosis continues to drive AI applications in the medical imaging market. In fact, the size of the market for AI in medical imaging is experiencing phenomenal growth, expected to increase from $1.12 billion in 2022 to $27.52 billion by 2029, according to Maximize Market Research, a global healthcare market research firm. While more transformational change is coming, I would like t...

AI detects incidental lung nodules on chest x-rays
In this study, the researchers evaluated imaging results from 14,563 patients who underwent initial chest x-rays in outpatient clinics. Three radiologists categorized nodules into malignancy (group A), active inflammation or infection that needs treatment (group B), (group C), and others (group D). Lesions were considered present when the software’s abnormality score exceeded 15%.According to the findings, the AI software detected unexpected lung nodules in 152 patients (1%). The study authors excluded 72 patients due to inconclusive results because they had no follow-up images. In addition, seven patients were excluded ...
