MITA Calls for Clarification

The Medical Imaging & Technology Alliance (MITA) released a new whitepaper to bring forth a new framework. With this research, they want to establish the difference between manufacturing and servicing for all medical imaging devices. The latest document called, ‘Considerations for Remanufacturing of Medical Imaging Devices’, insists on establishing a clearer differentiation between manufacturing and […]

Imaging Proximity and Convenience Matter

Follow-up imaging is an important requirement for patients to ensure complete healing. However, when it comes to the location of imaging facilities, new research found that patients usually come back to the same place for follow-up imaging where they had gone for initial imaging.

The International Group Uses AI to Study Cellular Structure in Brain

Taking the potential of Artificial Intelligence a step further, a team of researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) used machine learning and non-invasive neuroimaging data to unravel valuable insights deep into the cellular structure of the human brain. According to scientists, this would aid in revealing key cellular properties of various regions of […]

Preparing for AI in Healthcare

There exists a remarkable hype about the proliferation of AI in healthcare. The potential of Artificial Intelligence in healthcare is momentous, but is the industry prepared to embrace the transition in everyday care? The answer is – not yet.
