Abstract PurposeThis study was performed to demonstrate that a properly trained convolutional neural net (CNN) can provide an acceptable surrogate for human readers when performing a protocol optimization study. Tears of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) were used as a proof of concept for this study. MethodsFollowing institutional review board approval, a curated set of 2,007 paired knee MR images was extracted from the author’s picture archival and communications system (PACS) for 1523 norm...

OBJECTIVE: To clinically validate a fully automated deep convolutional neural network (DCNN) for detection of surgically proven meniscus tears. MATERIALS AND METHODS: One hundred consecutive patients were retrospectively included, who underwent knee MRI and knee arthroscopy in our institution. All MRI were evaluated for medial and lateral meniscus tears by two musculoskeletal radiologists independently and by DCNN. Included patients were not part of the training set of the DCNN. Surgical reports...

AIM To investigate the feasibility of applying a deep convolutional neural network (CNN) for detection/localisation of acute proximal femoral fractures (APFFs) on hip radiographs. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study had institutional review board approval. Radiographs of 307 patients with APFFs and 310 normal patients were identified. A split ratio of 3/1/1 was used to create training, validation, and test datasets. To test the validity of the proposed model, a 20-fold cross-validation was performe...

Osteoporosis is a prevalent and treatable condition, but it remains underdiagnosed. In this study, a deep learning-based system was developed to automatically measure bone mineral density (BMD) for opportunistic osteoporosis screening using low-dose chest computed tomography (LDCT) scans obtained for lung cancer screening. First, a deep learning model was trained and tested with 200 annotated LDCT scans to segment and label all vertebral bodies (VBs). Then, the mean CT numbers of the trabecular ...

Deep learning with convolutional neural networks (CNN) is a rapidly advancing subset of artificial intelligence that is ideally suited to solving image-based problems. There are an increasing number of musculoskeletal applications of deep learning, which can be conceptually divided into the categories of lesion detection, classification, segmentation, and non-interpretive tasks. Numerous examples of deep learning achieving expert-level performance in specific tasks in all four categories have be...

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a leading image modality for the assessment of musculoskeletal (MSK) injuries and disorders. A significant drawback, however, is the lengthy data acquisition. This issue has motivated the development of methods to improve the speed of MRI. The field of artificial intelligence (AI) for accelerated MRI, although in its infancy, has seen tremendous progress over the past 3 years. Promising approaches include deep learning methods for reconstructing undersampled M...

Body composition entails the measurement of muscle and fat mass in the body and has been shown to impact clinical outcomes in various aspects of human health. As a result, the need is growing for reliable and efficient noninvasive tools to measure body composition. Traditional methods of estimating body composition, anthropomorphic measurements, dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry, and bioelectrical impedance, are limited in their application. Cross-sectional imaging remains the reference standard ...

OBJECTIVES To build and validate deep learning and machine learning fusion models to classify benign, malignant, and intermediate bone tumors based on patient clinical characteristics and conventional radiographs of the lesion. METHODS In this retrospective study, data were collected with pathologically confirmed diagnoses of bone tumors between 2012 and 2019. Deep learning and machine learning fusion models were built to classify tumors as benign, malignant, or intermediate using conventional r...

Recent investigations have focused on the clinical application of artificial intelligence (AI) for tasks specifically addressing the musculoskeletal imaging routine. Several AI applications have been dedicated to optimizing the radiology value chain in spine imaging, independent from modality or specific application. This review aims to summarize the status quo and future perspective regarding utilization of AI for spine imaging. First, the basics of AI concepts are clarified. Second, the differ...

In the last two decades, relevant progress has been made in the diagnosis of musculoskeletal tumors due to the development of new imaging tools, such as diffusion-weighted imaging, diffusion kurtosis imaging, magnetic resonance spectroscopy, and diffusion tensor imaging. Another important role has been played by the development of artificial intelligence software based on complex algorithms, which employ computing power in the detection of specific tumor types. The aim of this article is to repo...

Osteoporosis and its clinical consequence, bone fracture, is a multifactorial disease that has been the object of extensive research. Recent advances in machine learning (ML) have enabled the field of artificial intelligence (AI) to make impressive breakthroughs in complex data environments where human capacity to identify high-dimensional relationships is limited. The field of osteoporosis is one such domain, notwithstanding technical and clinical concerns regarding the application of ML method...
