May 2023 Cycle Report
30 May 2023 by Miriam Groeneveld
This cycle, the RSE team has made improvements for pathology. It is now possible to upload DICOM-WSI files, they will be converted to tiff. Segmentations as tiff files are now supported and will be validated according to the segmentation interface. The annotation statistics plugin has had an overall make-over, with progress bar and caching improving general usability. Other features include a 3D brush for creating and editing masks, and improvements to the admin page for challenge organizers.

January 2023 Cycle Report
15 Feb. 2023 by Miriam Groeneveld
This cycle work was done to make algorithm result viewing faster by reusing Cirrus sessions. We also made it possible to select existing images for trying out an Algorithm, creating a Display Set in Reader Studies and creating Archive Items.
December 2022 Cycle Report
10 Jan. 2023 by Miriam Groeneveld and Chris van Run
In this year's first release, we added the option to reuse existing images to run an algorithm on or create an archive item or display set. Previously this was only possible with the python client. We extended our annotation types with the ellipse annotation, to be used in Reader studies or Algorithms. Under the hood, we are working on improving the viewing of pathology images, making them faster and more error-proof. To improve the reliability and ease of use of the GC-API client, we have added retries to certain requests in the client. This should reduce the number of errors that need to be handled by the user.

One year of MDR: 17% of products comply
27 May 2022 by Kicky van Leeuwen
It has been a year since the more stringent Medical Device Regulation (MDR) replaced the former Medical Device Directive (MDD). With two years left on the clock for the 'transition period', only 17% of the AI products for radiology have obtained clearance under the MDR so far. If the market continues at this pace, half of the current CE marked AI products for radiology will not comply in time. The likely consequence is that software will be taken off the market and can no longer be used clinically after May 2024. Does that mean users stop buying MDD compliant AI software? Read about it in this blog!

Can AI predict breast cancer recurrence via automated quantification of tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes?
6 March 2022 by Francesco Ciompi, Anne Mickan, Bram van Ginneken, Alexander Lemm, Roberto Salgado and Megan Schuurmans
TIGER is the first challenge on fully automated assessment of tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) in hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) breast cancer histopathology slides. With TIGER, we released a training set of 390 whole-slide images and a total award of $13,000 in AWS Credits, which will be awarded to the winning teams. Together with its participants, we aim to find the best AI-based solutions for automating the assessment of the TILs and produce a “TILs score” that can predict the recurrence of breast cancer.

Learn about AI in healthcare with these online courses
17 Feb. 2022 by Kicky van Leeuwen
Barely anyone working in the field of AI in healthcare received a formal education on the combination of topics. Simply, because with emerging fields, there usually isn’t much formal education yet. However, by now, with the market maturing, more and more educational resources are becoming available for AI in healthcare specifically. Are you looking to bridge that gap between healthcare and AI? This is the place to start!

Is AI worth its money?
5 Oct. 2021 by Kicky van Leeuwen
In the application of AI in healthcare, there is still a major question to be answered: who is going to pay - and how much - for AI in healthcare? A health technology assessment may help to find out. We applied this method to assess AI for stroke. In this blog, we discuss the results and implications and make the model available for your own use.

How to build a global, scalable, low-latency, and secure machine learning medical imaging analysis platform on AWS
24 Aug. 2020 by Razvan Ionasec, Bram van Ginneken and James Meakin
It is hard to imagine the future for medical imaging without machine learning (ML) as its central innovation engine. Countless researchers, developers, start-ups, and larger enterprises are engaged in building, training, and deploying machine learning solutions for medical imaging that are posed to transform today’s medical workflows and the future value of imaging in diagnosis and treatment.
