X-Ray

X-ray, or X-radiation, is a form of electromagnetic radiation that can pass through many materials that are opaque to light. They can be used to take images of the inside of the human body.

In new QuickPoLL survey on imaging during the pandemic, responses were tallied from around 170 radiology administrators and business managers, who are part of an imagePRO panel created by The MarkeTech Group (TMTG), regarding the effects of COVID-19 on their business. TMTG is a research firm specializing in the medical device, healthcare and pharmaceutical industries.

This is an artificial intelligence (AI) application from Lunit that automatically detects a collapsed lung (pneumothorax) on a Fujifilm mobile DR X-ray system. The AI automaticially scans all images as they are captured to determine if there is a critical finding and if so, immediately alerts the RT so it can be listed as a STAT read and so they cal alert the attending physician.

Maps of stiffness (storage modulus) in uniform-concentration sample (left) and sample with harder inclusion (right) (sample: polyacrylamide gel). It can be seen that harder inclusion is clearly visible in spite that its concentration is only slightly different from the surrounding matrix. Note that such a slight difference cannot be discerned by typical X-ray radiography for medical diagnostics.
