Artificial Intelligence

This channel includes news and technology innovations for artificial intelligence (AI) software, also referred to as deep learning, cognitive computing and machine learning. AI technology is being integrated in radiology for imaging appropriate use criteria (AUC), clinical decision support, predictive analytics and to assist radiologists with improved workflow.

From business intelligence to clinical research to product development we are learning to leverage data as a critical component of how we perform and how we improve

Kaplan–Meier curves for the high-risk individuals and the ones with low or medium risk according to AI-severity. The threshold to assign individuals into a high-risk group was the 2/3 quantile of the AI-severity score computed for patients of the KB development cohort. a Kaplan–Meier curves were obtained for the 150 leftover KB patients from the development cohort. b Kaplan–Meier curves were obtained for the 135 patients of the IGR validation cohort. p-values for the log-rank test were equal to 4.77e–07 (KB) and 4.00e–12 (IGR). The two terciles used to determine threshold values for low-, medium-, and high-risk groups were equal to 0.187 and 0.375. Diamonds correspond to censoring of patients who were still hospitalized at the time when data ceased to be updated. The bands correspond to the sequence of the 95% confidence intervals of the survival probabilities for each day. KB Kremlin-Bicêtre hospital, IGR Institut Gustave Roussy hospital.
