Logistic models and artificial intelligence in the sonographic assessment of adnexal masses - a systematic review of the literature.
Authors: Grigore M, Popovici RM, Gafitanu D, Himiniuc L, Murarasu M, Micu R Abstract Adnexal masses are common, yet challenging, in gynecological practice. Making the differential diagnosis between their benign and malignant condition is essential for optimal surgical management, but reliable pre-surgical differentiation is sometimes difficult using clinical features, ultrasound examination, or tumor markers alone. A possible way to improve the diagnosis is using artificial intelligence (AI) or logistic models developed based on compiling and processing clinical, ultrasound, and tumor marker data together. Ample re...

Artificial intelligence helps cut down on MRI no-shows
(American Roentgen Ray Society) According to ARRS' American Journal of Roentgenology, artificial intelligence predictive analytics performed moderately well in solving complex multifactorial operational problems--outpatient MRI appointment no-shows, especially--using a modest amount of data and basic feature engineering. Such data may be readily retrievable from frontline information technology systems commonly used in most hospital radiology departments, and they can be readily incorporated into routine workflow practice to improve the efficiency and quality of health care delivery.

Overview of artificial intelligence-based applications in radiotherapy: recommendations for implementation and quality assurance.
Abstract Artificial Intelligence (AI) is currently being introduced into different domains, including medicine. Specifically in radiation oncology, machine learning models allow automation and optimization of the workflow. A lack of knowledge and interpretation of these AI models can hold back wide-spread and full deployment into clinical practice. To facilitate the integration of AI models in the radiotherapy workflow, generally applicable recommendations on implementation and quality assurance (QA) of AI models are presented. For commonly used applications in radiotherapy such as auto-segmentation, automated tre...

Artificial intelligence in trauma systems
Local trauma care and regional trauma systems are data-rich environments that are amenable to machine learning, artificial intelligence, and big-data analysis mechanisms to improve timely access to care, to measure outcomes, and to improve quality of care. Pilot work has been done to demonstrate that these methods are useful to predict patient flow at individual centers, so that staffing models can be adapted to match workflow. Artificial intelligence has also been proven useful in the development of regional trauma systems as a tool to determine the optimal location of a new trauma center based on trauma-patient geospatia...

Artificial intelligence in pathology: an overview
Artificial intelligence (AI) is at the forefront of modern technology and emerging uses within the healthcare sector are now being realised. Pathology will be a key area where the impact of AI will be felt. With more and more laboratories making the transition to digital pathology this will provide the key infrastructure in which to deploy these tools and their use will start to become a reality in diagnostic practice. The potential of AI in pathology is to create image analysis tools which could either be used for diagnostic support or to derive novel insights into disease biology, in addition to those achievable with a human observer.

Overview of artificial intelligence-based applications in radiotherapy: recommendations for implementation and quality assurance
The radiotherapy (RT) workflow is a complex process consisting of several time-consuming steps that have an impact on treatment quality and hence patient outcome. Artificial intelligence (AI) has been proposed as a tool to increase quality, standardisation and acceleration of these steps leading to a more safe and accurate radiation administration by automation and optimization of workflows [1 –3]. Especially with the introduction of adaptive radiotherapy (ART), a streamlined workflow is mandatory in clinical routine.

Examination of the Flynn effect in German patients with epilepsy assessed with the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS) III and IV.
Abstract The Flynn effect describes an increase in intelligence quotient (IQ) in the general population of about 3 points per decade. While this effect is well established in healthy individuals, research exploring the link to brain pathologies is scarce. We investigated the Flynn effect in a German sample of 203 patients with epilepsy with left, right, and bilateral lesions. Intelligence quotient values were obtained using the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scales (WAIS) III and IV. Our results showed a stable Flynn effect with nearly no difference in adjusted full scale IQ (FSIQ) scores (0.02 IQ points) between the...

Evaluation of Artificial Intelligence in Participating Structure-Based Virtual Screening for Identifying Novel Interleukin-1 Receptor Associated Kinase-1 Inhibitors
In this study, at first, a discriminatory structure-based virtual screening (SBVS) was employed, but only one active compound (compound 1, IC50 = 2.25 μM) was identified. The low hit rate (2.63%) which derives from the weak discriminatory power of docking among high-scored molecules was observed in our virtual screening (VS) process for IRAK1 inhibitor. Furthermore, an artificial intelligence (AI) method, which employed a support vector machine (SVM) model, integrated information of molecular docking, pharmacophore scoring and molecular descriptors was constructed to enhance the traditional IRAK1-VS protocol.

Combining Three-Dimensional Modeling with Artificial Intelligence to Increase Specificity and Precision in Peptide-MHC Binding Predictions.
In this study, we present a rapid, predictive computational approach that combines a popular, sequence-based artificial neural network method, NetMHCpan 4.0, with three-dimensional structural modeling.
