Artificial Intelligence May Cause a Significant Disruption to the Radiology Workforce.

J Am Coll Radiol 2019 Apr 8. Epub 2019 Apr 8.

Departments of Radiology, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Biostatistics and Bioinformatics, Duke University, Durham, North Carolina. Electronic address:

The increasingly realistic prospect of artificial intelligence (AI) playing an important role in radiology has been welcomed with a mixture of enthusiasm and anxiousness. A consensus has arisen that AI will support radiologists in the interpretation of less challenging cases, which will give the radiologists more time to focus on the challenging tasks as well as interactions with patients and other clinicians. The possibility of AI replacing a large number of radiologists is generally dismissed by the radiology community. Read More

The Role of the ACR Data Science Institute in Advancing Health Equity in Radiology.

J Am Coll Radiol 2019 Apr;16(4 Pt B):644-648

ACR Data Science Institute, Reston, Virginia; Department of Radiology, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts.

Commercially available artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms outside of health care have been shown to be susceptible to ethnic, gender, and social bias, which has important implications in the development of AI algorithms in health care and the radiologic sciences. To prevent the introduction bias in health care AI, the physician community should work with developers and regulators to develop pathways to ensure that algorithms marketed for widespread clinical practice are safe, effective, and free of unintended bias. The ACR Data Science Institute has developed structured AI use cases with data elements that allow the development of standardized data sets for AI testing and training across multiple institutions to promote the availability of diverse data for algorithm development.

The Patient Perspective on Lung Cancer Screening and Health Disparities.

J Am Coll Radiol 2019 Apr;16(4 Pt B):601-606

Lahey Hospital and Medical Center, Burlington, Massachusetts. Electronic address:

Lung cancer screening is just starting to be implemented across the United States. Challenges to screening include access to care, awareness of the option for screening, stigma and implicit bias that are due to stigmatization of smoking, stigma of race, nihilism with lung cancer diagnosis viewed as a "death sentence," shared decision making, and underestimation of lung cancer risk. African Americans (AA) have the highest lung cancer mortality rate in the United States despite similar smoking rates as whites. Read More

Improving Lung Cancer Screening Access for Individuals With Serious Mental Illness.

J Am Coll Radiol 2019 Apr;16(4 Pt B):596-600

Department of Psychiatry, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard. Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts; Mongan Institute for Health Policy, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts.

Lung cancer continues to be the leading cause of cancer mortality in the United States across all races and ethnicities, but it does not affect everyone equally. Individuals with serious mental illness (SMI), including schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, experience two to four times greater lung cancer mortality in part due to high rates of smoking, delays in cancer diagnosis, and inequities in cancer treatment. Additionally, adults with SMI experience patient, clinician, and health care system-level barriers to accessing cancer screening, such as cognitive deficits that impact understanding of cancer risk, higher rates of poverty and social isolation, patient-provider communication challenges, decreased access to tobacco cessation, and the fragmentation of primary care and mental health care.

J Am Coll Radiol 2019 Apr;16(4 Pt B):590-595

Rural and Minority Health Research Center, University of South Carolina, Columbia, South Carolina; Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, University of South Carolina, Columbia, South Carolina. Electronic address:

Rural populations have higher rates of smoking and both lung cancer incidence and mortality compared with their urban peers. As such, it is imperative that high-risk, rural populations have access to recommended low-dose CT (LDCT) screening, which can detect lung cancer at an earlier, more treatable stage. Data from the 2015 National Health Interview Survey, a nationally representative survey, were analyzed to assess nonmetropolitan-metropolitan and geographic differences in LDCT utilization among screening-eligible individuals.
