Artificial intelligence (AI) in medical imaging: threat or opportunity?

This article deals with the potentials and consequences of integrating AI into radiology. The authors define basic terms such as “machine/deep learning” and analyse the use of AI in recent publications. Article: Artificial intelligence in medical imaging: threat or...

Vertebral elastoplasty proven safe and effective

The authors set out to evaluate technical success of image-guided elastoplasty – a novel method for percutaneous vertebral augmentation with a silicone elastomeric material. The procedure was successfully performed 19 times which led the authors to say elastoplasty...

Multicolour imaging with spectral photon-counting CT

This research aimed to assess the possibility of multicolour quantitative imaging with spectral photon-counting computed tomography (SPCCT) of different mixed contrast agents. The results proved that SPCCT enables multicolour quantitative imaging and opened up the...

Shear wave imaging detects endoleaks after aortic repair

The authors used an animal model to evaluate residual endoleak and thrombus organisation with shear wave imaging after endoleak embolisation. Using eight dogs with 16 iliac aneurysms and type I endoleak after endovascular aneurysm repair, the authors concluded that...
