RadNet Developing Artificial Intelligence (AI) for Radiology

RadNet is working to develop a set of artificially intelligent computer algorithms that can read and interpret imaging studies. Though the work is still in its early stages, it promises to improve the lives of both patients and their healthcare providers. Artificial Intelligence (AI) has the potential to increase diagnostic certainty, reduce overtreatment, and conserve resources for patients most in need.

How AI Algorithms Work

A basic […]

Why PI-RADS Matters

In recent years, the role for multiparametric MRI in prostate cancer detection and management has expanded. Ongoing research shows that potential for multiparametric MRI to help reduce instances of overtreatment and understaging. One barrier to mainstream implementation has been a lack of standardization in the interpretation and reporting of multiparametric MRI exams. However, the Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System (PI-RADS) helps to solve that problem. […]

Adding Multiparametric MRI to Prostate Cancer Screening Will Save Lives and Money

In recent years, recommendations for prostate cancer screening have been caught amidst growing controversy. The utility of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) testing, the most prominent front-line screening exam for prostate cancer has been heavily critiqued. Meanwhile, numerous men present with incurable late-stage prostate cancer while men with low-risk, indolent disease receive treatment that offers little benefit in terms of health outcomes. Prostate cancer patients and their physicians have long sought an alternative to the current […]

USPSTF Recommendations Ignore Realities of Breast Cancer

Annual mammogram screening beginning at age 40 saves lives. U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends less frequent screening at a later age, not because screening will not save lives, but because it will not save sufficient numbers of lives when started before age 50.

The guidelines are based on outdated, blemished data and do not evaluate cost-effectiveness or any other benefits of early detection. In fact, USPSTF states, “Screening mammography in women ages 40 to […]
