Tucson, AZ (PRWEB) May 03, 2017
Online radiology resource AuntMinnie.com today launched its new Artificial Intelligence Community, designed to cover one of the hottest trends in healthcare: the use of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and other tools to analyze and interpret medical information.
Artificial intelligence involves the use of sophisticated computer algorithms to analyze large volumes of complex data, detecting trends and predicting outcomes far more efficiently than could be achieved with human-based analysis. The technology is showing great potential in healthcare, as physicians and other providers clamor for better tools to enable them to work more efficiently.
As one of the medical specialties that generates the most digital data, radiology is ripe for artificial intelligence. Modern technologies such as CT, MRI, PET, and digital radiography are producing a deluge of information that threatens to overwhelm radiologists unless new data analysis tools are created.
Fortunately, artificial intelligence tools are becoming available that will enable radiologists to use AI to collect a wealth of case-based information to help them interpret images. For example, AI algorithms could ensure that prior radiology exams, lab results, and related health information are delivered to radiologists even as they sit down to their workstations, helping them render faster, more accurate diagnoses. In addition, algorithms developed via a type of machine learning called deep learning are showing promise for handling a wide variety of image analysis tasks in radiology.
"We're pleased to be able to deliver the new Artificial Intelligence Community to our readers," said Ashok Shah, general manager of AuntMinnie.com. "Artificial intelligence and machine learning will be key components of healthcare in coming years, and this new special section will be a resource that our readers can rely on for the latest news and information about this exciting technology."
The new community is being launched with a feature article by AuntMinnie.com Senior Editor Erik L. Ridley that highlights the current status of artificial intelligence and the most urgent use cases for the technology in radiology. The story can be reached at http://ai.auntminnie.com.
