Cloud-based imaging, 3D printing profession optimization, and AI driven healthcare systems are in the news.
This week’s articles include: how AI is affecting the healthcare industry; SIIM adopts latest HL7 FHIR standard; how to increase female medical student interest in radiology; ways for radiologists to boost their role in 3D printing; and the advantages of cloud-based image sharing.
Is an AI-driven health system a ‘realistic’ vision? – British Journal of Healthcare Computing
The interest in artificial intelligence (AI) is affecting industries worldwide, including the healthcare sector. However, the enormous potential of this new technology has divided opinions in healthcare. Companies embracing the use of AI now specify their software does not intend to replace the work of individual clinicians; it aims to help clinicians care for their patients.
SIIM adopts latest HL7 FHIR standard – www.SIIM.org
HL7 FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) version STU 3 is now available. Although it is still a trial, exiting the draft stage is an important milestone for the long way FHIR has come and how mature it has become in the approximately three years since DSTU 1.
How to increase female medical student interest in radiology – Radiology Business
Interest in radiology among female medical students remains almost the same over the last few decades. In a study recently published in Current Problems in Diagnostic Radiology, the authors examine what can be done to finally reverse that trend and increase interest. One method in particular made a significant difference—promoting the visibility of female radiologists.
How radiologists can optimize their role in 3D printing – www.AuntMinnie.com
Now that healthcare and 3D printing can be combined, there are ways for radiologists to get started and even maximize their role in this field. According to a recent webinar discussion with a panel of 3D experts, there are practical measures radiologists can follow to further integrate 3D printing into their own healthcare environment.
Cloud-based image sharing improves efficiency and reporting times – Radiology Business
Radiologists might benefit from investing in cloud-based image sharing software to improve departmental workflow. According to new research published in American College of Radiology, cloud-based image sharing showed high efficacy in a mammography department. The researchers stated that recent advancements in cloud-based image transfer technology have resulted in more efficient options for examination transfer between institutions.
