Will technology soon replace radiologists?
Leading researchers in radiology shared their vision for the marriage between radiology and super-smart computers at the recently-concluded annual meeting of the Radiological Society of America in Chicago.

Computer-aided diagnosis has myriad functions, but two primary goals reign in the radiology sphere. One is to find, extract and quantify information that is there in the images, be they CT, MRI or PET scans, but that is not evident by viewing alone. Features like tissue textures, shape and signal intensities are picked up by CAD technology to help guide diagnosis, and further, help predict the progression of the disease and best treatment options....
