Patient-specific Radiation Dose Estimates@AuntMinnie

Ridley reports,  “A machine-learning algorithm shows potential for facilitating the holy grail of real-time, patient-specific radiation dose estimates from CT scans, according to research presented at the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) annual meeting”.  “In a proof-of-concept study, a team from Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) implemented a machine-learning algorithm that could identify organs on CT datasets with approximately 99% accuracy — the first step in creating real-time radiation dose estimates that are customized for individual patients.”
