This channel includes news and new technology innovations for healthcare information technology (HIT) as it relates to cardiology reporting systems, cardiac PACS, electronic medical records, electronic health records, EMRs, EHRs, radiology PACS integration, clinical decision support, advaned imaging visualization, analytics software and cybersecurity.

Collage depicts broad applications in machine learning or deep learning (DL) that can be applied to advanced medical imaging technologies. Size of the liver and its fat fraction — 22 percent — (top middle in collage) can be quantified automatically using an algorithm developed by Dr. Albert Hsiao and his team at the University of California San Diego. This and other information that might be mined by DL algorithms from CT and MR images could help personalize patients’ treatment. Collage provided by Albert Hsiao
