AI in Medical Imaging to Top $2 Billion by 2023


CRANFIELD, England, Aug. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The world market for machine learning in medical imaging, comprising software for automated detection, quantification, decision support and diagnosis, is set for a period of robust growth and is forecast to top $2 billion by 2023, according to a new report from Signify Research, an independent supplier of market intelligence and consultancy to the global [...]



A THREE-DIMENSIONAL (3D) model of a human left heart ventricle has been successfully bioengineered by researchers at Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA. The new creation was built with the aim of providing a device that can be used to test drugs, study disease, and develop patient-specific treatments for arrythmia and various other heart conditions. [...]

Contrast Media/Contrast Agent Market, by Media Type and Geography – Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2018-2026


Contrast media or contrast agent is used in medical imaging to enhance the image of body parts generated through X-rays, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), and ultrasound. These substances are momentarily used to change the way imaging tools or x-rays interact with the body. Contrast media or contrast agent help the physicians to diagnose [...]

Dilated Cardiomyopathy Market – Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2018 – 2026


Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a condition in which the heart gets enlarged and is not able to efficiently pump blood. The reduced heart function can affect the functioning of other organs such as lungs, liver, and kidney. The heart muscles begin to dilate (stretches), which result in thinning and increased area of the chamber, further it [...]

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Systems Market – Global Industry Insights, Trends, Size, Share, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2018-2026


Magnetic resonance Imaging (MRI) is an advanced medical imaging technique employed to image the anatomy and physiological processes in the body of an individual. These images are formed by MRI scanners using high power magnets, strong magnetic fields, radio waves and magnetic field gradients. Magnetic resonance imaging systems does not use ionizing radiations, it is mainly [...]

Exercise Can Reduce the Risk of Heart Failure


Getting regular exercise and staying slim can lower the risk for an especially hard-to-treat type of heart failure, new research shows. This specific type of disease is called heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). Ejection fraction is the amount of blood that’s pumped out of the heart. In many people with heart failure, the heart [...]

A deep-learning classifier identifies patients with clinical heart failure using whole-slide images of H&E tissue


Over 26 million people worldwide suffer from heart failure annually. When the cause of heart failure cannot be identified, endomyocardial biopsy (EMB) represents the gold-standard for the evaluation of disease. However, manual EMB interpretation has high inter-rater variability. Deep convolutional neural networks (CNNs) have been successfully applied to detect cancer, diabetic retinopathy, and dermatologic lesions from [...]

Small wins vs. big losses: AI in healthcare


All journeys begin with a single step. The journey to value-based care is no different. One foot in front of the other. The steady accumulation of those steps and one finds oneself a thousand miles from the starting point. The same will be the story of artificial intelligence in healthcare.
