Artificial intelligence (AI) is introducing remarkable advances and innovations in the field of radiology, as widely emphasized during the last annual meeting ofthe Radiological Society of North America (see the mdct.net Newsletter – December 2018). Recent and continuously evolving data have already shown how feasible it is to apply AI to radiological practice, while many studies are exploring new strategies to incorporate AI technologies into existing imaging systems. The objective is to provide a supportive instrument for radiologists and to achieve more precise and individualized diagnoses for patients.
On the wave of this revolutionary progress, we propose Dr. Anzidei’s review, which examines the most relevant applications of AI to MDCT and highlights the unique clinical role played by radiologists. The background and characteristics of AI methods combined with MDCT, as well as some experiences with this application, are illustratedin the selected literature.
Finally, we propose two new clinical cases covering different body regions and pathologies.
We remind you that suggestions for topics to be covered in future issues of this newsletter are welcome as usual. Please send your proposals to us at email@example.com.
