Imaging Technique Provides Insight into Speech Development

Our speech development is affected by numerous factors, including the pathway of the brain. What we hear and derive affects individual language development significantly. A research team from New York University used different imaging techniques to determine the effect of the brain’s pathways and its contribution to speech development. Published on March 4, the research […]

Do We Need AI Guidelines for Healthcare?

Artificial Intelligence along with other new technologies is making a breakthrough in healthcare and medicine. After the development of some unique guidelines, the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists (RANZCR) are of certain that AI is the most advanced and effective technology that can boost healthcare. However, before the technology is widely acclaimed […]

Is CDS the answer for Ordering Appropriately?

It is a common practice to overuse healthcare resources, which includes imaging. House staff physicians have been overusing resources leading to concerns arising repeatedly. Researchers have recently developed a clinical decision support (CDS) tool that helps clinicians with less experience to reduce inappropriate imaging orders. The study team analyzed over 5000 CT and MRI orders […]

fMRI May be Able to Help with Emotional and Physical Pain

People suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) often experience immense emotional and physical pain. A recent study conducted by researchers from the University of California, San Diego, found that functional MRI (fMRI) can be used to significantly reduce the pain. fMRI can be used for noninvasive vagus nerve stimulation which can considerably reduce the pain […]

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. Most healthcare service providers are still on their journey of digitizing their processes and tools to […]

Why Radiologists Need Machine Learning Curriculum to Improve Safety, Workflow Efficiency

The rapid growth of machine learning has brought a major surge in the field of radiology, transforming diagnostic operations and imaging applications with advanced algorithms and processes. However, radiologists and imaging experts are only aware of the advantages of harnessing machine learning. They lack knowledge of the challenges that come with embracing the technology, how […]

How Radiologists Can Minimize Distractions, Reduce Burnout and Become More Efficient

Burnout is a major issue that affects radiologists more than medical practitioners in any other specialty. Several factors contribute to exhaustion in the medical profession but radiologists face the major impact because of great pressure to perform more in lesser time. Bureaucratic workload, lack of autonomy in their field, and their compensation related directly to […]
