The road to radiology’s AI adoption runs through workflow integration – Radiology Today
Artificial intelligence (AI) has the power to augment radiologists’ work and achieve goals, but access to that power requires new approaches to radiology workflow design. Broad provider adoption will require integrating AI into clinical workflows. Current workflows and user interfaces will need to be rethought and adapted to the ways AI interacts with patient image data and delivers insights. Read the news release to learn how Carestream has integrated AI to help improve radiology workflow.
8 overlooked PACS features that can help increase your ROI – Everything Rad
Technology advances are impacting multiple areas of diagnostic imaging – and PACS software is no exception. There are multiple features – perhaps too many – that have the potential to increase productivity and improve diagnoses. Sometimes, radiologists are surprised to learn about features that have been available to them all along. In this blog, a Carestream software specialist shares a list of features within the CARESTREAM Clinical Collaboration Platform that are often under-used but could be beneficial to medical imaging.
Analysts predict rise in X-ray mammography imaging – Health Imaging
The utilization of X-ray mammography systems to detect breast cancer is expected to rise in highly populated countries throughout the world in the years ahead, according to a new report from Frost & Sullivan. The report—called “Global X-ray Mammography Imaging Systems Market, Forecast to 2022″—examines global trends in mammography utilization and provides insight for current vendors working in the space.

Healthcare IT at its earliest stage? – HIMSS Europe Insights
In 2025, the health and care space will largely be 15 years into widespread digitization. Is that when we will see major disruption and transformation? This article highlights a keynote address at the HIMSS Europe 18 & Health 2.0 conference in Spain this past summer. The speaker discussed how healthcare went from being an industry whose information was recorded, stored and moved around on paper, to an industry whose ‘information backbone’ turned digital.
Small exercise tips for radiologists may yield large gains – Radiology Today
Given the conditions radiologists work in, it is no surprise that carpal tunnel, and neck and back pain are common. With the introduction of digital film and medical records, a new hazard has emerged for radiologists who remain stationary behind a desk for 10 to 12 hours per shift. This article shares ways to combat this sedentary dilemma for a profession that, by its nature, requires prolonged screen time.
