The goal of augmented intelligence is to increase efficiency and effectiveness in practice. To achieve this, augmented intelligence technologies are being asked to perform a range of tasks, from simple to complex and quantitative. The development of these systems is increasingly important as screening becomes more personalized.

This webinar will provide an overview of augmented intelligence in a variety of breast imaging applications. In addition, the presenters will compare commonly used breast cancer risk assessment models, describe the machine learning approach and big data in risk prediction, and summarize the potential benefits and harms of restrictive risk-based screening.

Artificial intelligence is in the early phases of application to medical imaging, and patient safety demands a commitment to sound methods and avoidance of rhetorical and overly optimistic claims. Adherence to best practices should elevate the quality of articles submitted to and published by clinical journals.

This webinar will highlight best practices for writing and reviewing articles on artificial intelligence for medical image analysis. Participants will critically read and evaluate articles on the application of AI in biomedical imaging for proof of technical feasibility, expert level performance, and real-world clinical performance.

Patient shielding is standard practice in diagnostic imaging, despite growing evidence it provides negligible or no benefit and carries a substantial risk of increasing patient dose and compromising diagnostic efficacy of an image.

Although change is difficult, it is incumbent upon radiologists, medical physicists, and radiologic technologists to abandon the practice of patient shielding in radiology. This webinar will discuss the historical rationale of patient shielding and the folly of its continued use.

After attending this session, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the risks of patient shielding in diagnostic radiology
  • Describe the lack of benefit for patient shielding in the modern technical environment
