This channel contains news about the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE), including coverage of its annual meeting and links to recently released practice guidelines. ASE is a leading resource in cardiac ultrasound (echo) techniques and technologies. 

Automated medical imaging views using deep learning, artificial intelligence, Philips Epiq

GE, Siemens and Philips are among the echocardiography vendors that incorporate deep learning algorithms into its echo software to help automatically extract standard imaging views from 3-D ultrasound datasets. This is an example of the Philips Epiq system, which uses the vendor's Anatomical Intelligence software to define the anatomical structures and automatically display standard diagnostic views of the anatomy without human intervention. This can greatly speed workflow and reduce inter-operator variability.
