New AI software shows promise in diagnosing breast cancer along with ultrasound and CT scan.

A test conducted by a New York-based radiology group found artificial intelligence used in breast ultrasound examinations provides evidence that the software helps in cancer detection when using ultrasound and CT scans. The tests took place over 18 months and included input from nine specialist and utilized AI software from Koios Medical. Koios DS Breast…

Radiation Doses for Lung Cancer Screenings Vary

A study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that many facilities exceed the recommended radiation dose when performing CT scans for lung cancer. The study also found that facilities following protocols set by a radiologist or an internal medical physicist contained lower doses. “If CT scans are performed with higher radiation dose than recommended, this…

Every year, over 3 million people are diagnosed with nasal polyps. These polys develop in the nasal passages and sinuses and cause postnasal drip, persistent runny nose and stuffiness, and facial pain. While not usually harmful, nasal polyps cause annoying symptoms and sometimes require surgery. Even after surgery, these polyps may return. A study conducted…

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is now helping diagnose small blood vessel disease, one of the leading causes of dementia and stroke. Clinical researchers at Imperial College London and the University of Edinburgh have developed an AI software to diagnose small vessel disease from CT scan results. The technology was first tested in 2018. Since then, researchers…
