Taking artificial intelligence out of the black box: An “interpretable” deep learning system for liver tumour diagnosisSource: European Society of Radiology
Convolutional neural networks (CNN) have demonstrated the potential to become effective and accurate decision support tools for radiologists. A major barrier to clinical translation, however, is that the majority of such algorithms currently function like a “black box”.

Clinicians are calling for increased collaboration between computer scientists, biomedical engineers and interventional radiologists as machine learning is posited to play a more prominent role in interventional radiology (IR) procedures, from informing the initial diagnosis, through to patient selection and intraprocedural guidance. In a recent primer published in The Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology (JVIR), Brian Letzen, Clinton Wang and Julius Chapiro, all of the Yale School of Medicine, New Haven, USA, outline the clinical applications of machine learning for IRs, and visualise a future where artificial intelligence (AI) enables the elevation of the discipline to become, in Chapiro’s words, “the epitome of personalised medicine”.

Yale University researchers have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm for classifying liver lesions on MRI scans that explains the reason for its decisions. The algorithm could address concerns about the "black box" nature of AI, according to research presented at last week's RSNA 2018 meeting.
