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.

Why Should Mammogram Patients Trust AI?

Posted by Alyssa Watanabe, MD, FACR on Sep 24, 2020 4:44:35 PM

 

Artificial intelligence (AI) is quickly becoming a mainstay in radiology, and it’s helping doctors read mammograms more accurately than ever. AI is no replacement for an expert radiologist, but it is a highly trained, sensitive tool that can pick up subtle differences the human eye might miss.

Why are Radiologists Embracing AI? Performance Building Trust

Posted by Alyssa Watanabe, MD, FACR on Aug 27, 2020 4:21:45 PM

 

Computer-Aided Detection (CAD) software has been a fixture in digital imaging centers in the U.S. since the late 1990s. While it’s been widely implemented in the U.S., studies have shown that traditional CAD systems lack specificity and display numerous false flags that are distracting and rarely beneficial.
