Radiology: What can AI do for your practice’s bottom line? 3 ways AI makes a difference for the financial health of a practice

Posted by Greg Houlgate, Chief Revenue Officer at CureMetrix on Mar 31, 2021 8:00:00 AM

 

It’s no secret that artificial intelligence (AI) has arrived in radiology and that AI-based CAD is good for patients.

But what about AI’s effect on your revenue? As highlighted in International Hospital, whether you are an independent radiologist or a large imaging center, you have a business to run, and practices need revenue and cost saving strategies to survive. The good news is that using AI to screen patients for breast cancers doesn’t just benefit patients—research shows that it improves your practice’s bottom line.

Artificial Intelligence (AI), Seeing Through Ethnic Disparities in Breast Imaging: An Interview with CureMetrix President Kevin Harris

Posted by Dawn Anderson, SVP Marketing on Feb 26, 2021 11:17:11 AM

 

Radiologists know that every patient is different. When reading a mammogram, it’s important to know a patient’s racial and ethnic background, health history, age, geographic location and breast density, just to name a few factors. Understanding how these differences may affect a patient’s diagnosis is crucial—and unfortunately, many radiologists do not have the data driven insights they need to accurately diagnose a diverse array of cases and find breast cancers earlier.

Coronary heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in the United States. One in three women will die from heart disease alone, according to the American Heart Association—five times the rate of death from breast cancer.

AI Test Drive for Radiologists: Special RSNA Results Recap

Posted by Kevin Harris, President at CureMetrix on Jan 11, 2021 9:13:44 AM

 

Artificial intelligence (AI) continues to make a major impact on medical imaging, particularly in computer-aided cancer detection. Multiple studies have demonstrated that using AI-based computer-aided detection (CAD) for mammography significantly improves radiologists’ ability to detect breast cancers[1] and reduces the number of false positives recalled for unnecessary screening[2].

AI Test Drive - CureMetrix Highlights Mammo AI Study Results

Posted by Dawn Anderson on Dec 7, 2020 12:53:27 PM

As published by AuntMinnie.com - Dec 1, 2020:

Computer-aided detection (CAD) software developer CureMetrix reported in a Tuesday morning presentation at the virtual RSNA 2020 meeting that radiologists who used its mammography artificial intelligence (AI) software in a recent challenge were more accurate than those who didn't utilize the technology.

In a "Test Drive Challenge" study performed by the company in collaboration with Ambra Health, CureMetrix found that radiologists who used its AI software had improved sensitivity and specificity for detecting breast cancer compared with those who didn't. They also read normal cases much faster than those who interpreted the exams without the aid of AI software, said Kevin Harris, president of CureMetrix.

In the study, CureMetrix first invited seven experienced radiologists to read an enriched test of 25 mammograms, which included 19 normal and six biopsy-confirmed cancer cases, according to the vendor. These exams were interpreted without the use of AI on a research platform created by Ambra, according to the vendor.

Next, 30 other radiologists who volunteered to participate in the challenge read the same cases on the same platform, but with help from AI. In this part of the study, the radiologists were given a worklist of the 25 mammograms that had been prioritized by the firm's cmTriage mammography triage software by level of cancer suspicion. They then interpreted the exams with help from the vendor's cmAssist algorithm, which identifies, marks, and scores suspicious lesions for review by the radiologist, according to CureMetrix.

Radiologist performance on test set of 25 screening mammograms
  Radiologists without AI Radiologists with AI Percentage improvement
Sensitivity 71% 75% 5%
Specificity 56% 75% 34%
Accuracy 60% 75% 25%

The improvements were seen across all levels of reader experience, according to the company.

In addition, the radiologists were able to read normal exams 40% faster with use of AI, CureMetrix said.
