73-year-old man with papillary carcinoma of left lobe of thyroid. Screen shot shows example of thyroid nodule annotation (segmentation and TI-RADS annotation) performed on ultrasound image in longitudinal projection with electronic Physician Annotation Device software (Stanford Medicine Radiology). Radiologists performed nodule segmentation by selecting points (red) on nodule outline (green), while controlling smoothing of outline polygon by means of spline interpolation.
This is a lung X-ray reviewed automatically by artificial intelligence (AI) to identify a collapsed lung (pneumothorax) in the color coded area. This AI app from Lunit is awaiting final FDA review and in planned to be integrated into several vendors' mobile digital radiography (DR) systems. Fujifilm showed this software integrated as a work-in-progress into its mobile X-ray system at RSNA 2019. GE Healthcare has its own version of this software for its mobile r=ray systems that gained FDA in 2019.
