Charles E. Kahn Jr. Named Editor of Radiology: Artificial Intelligence

May 2, 2018 – The Board of Directors of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) announced that Charles E. Kahn Jr., M.D., M.S., will become editor of the new online journal, Radiology: Artificial Intelligence. The new journal will highlight emerging applications of machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) in the field of imaging across multiple disciplines. It will provide a way to keep practicing physicians and imaging researchers up to date on the best emerging science in this subspecialty.

Beginning in early 2019, the journal will be published bi-monthly and available exclusively online. RSNA members will receive a complimentary subscription as a member benefit. Original research and editorial submissions to Radiology: Artificial Intelligence will be accepted beginning summer 2018.

Kahn is professor and vice chair of the Department of Radiology at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine in Philadelphia since joining the university in 2014. He is also a senior fellow of the Institute for Biomedical Informatics and the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics at Penn.

Radiology: Artificial Intelligence is an exciting venture,” Kahn said. “I’m deeply honored for the opportunity to serve as this new journal’s editor, and look forward to working with our authors, reviewers and editorial team to present cutting-edge science in this rapidly growing field.”

A board-certified radiologist with a clinical specialty in abdominal imaging, Kahn’s research interests include health services, comparative effectiveness, decision support, information standards and knowledge representation.

Kahn has served as an associate editor for the journal Radiology, and as an associate editor for the American Journal of Roentgenology (AJR). He has also served as a section editor for the Yearbook of Medical Informatics, a guest editor for the Journal of the American College of Radiology (JACR), and as chair of the Publications Committee of the American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS).

He has been a reviewer for several scientific journals, including Radiology, RadioGraphics, AJR, Academic Radiology, Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association (JAMIA), Journal of Biomedical Informatics, Journal of Digital Imaging, European Radiology and Artificial Intelligence in Medicine.

Kahn has authored or co-authored more than 110 peer-reviewed articles, and given nearly 100 invited lectures.

“With his extensive editorial experience and profound interest in the fields of artificial intelligence and machine learning, Charles Kahn is a natural fit for this role,” said Mary C. Mahoney, M.D., RSNA board liaison for publications and communications. “The RSNA Board is excited to see where he takes this important new journal.”

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.
