Interesting article on machine Learning. Will PACS solutions in 2020 have integrated CAD for 1. Mammography 2. Lung shadow detection on plain X-rays 3. Lung nodule detection on CT 4. Fracture and dislocation detection on limb X-ray 5. Haemorrhage detection on CT Head Etc I think CAD is a very useful tool for radiologists as it can act as a 1st reader. The role of radiologist will move from "detection" to "interpretation". Radiologists will take into account the clinical history, demographics, past history, blood results etc to provide a "clinical opinion".
We are going to see a change in the role of radiologists in the digital era.
