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!
AIROGS Challenge Report: AI models can be used for glaucoma screening, but do they know when they cannot?
The rationale behind the Artificial Intelligence for RObust Glaucoma Screening (AIROGS) Challenge, an overview of its results and our experiences with Grand Challenge's new Type 2 challenges.
Hi all! With this newsletter we want to update you on all progress made for Grand Challenge: new features, interesting new blogposts and algorithms, upcoming challenges and the leaderboards of finished challenges.
Can AI predict breast cancer recurrence via automated quantification of tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes?
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.

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!
Last week, we opened STOIC2021: A COVID-19 AI challenge with 10,000 CT scans. Together with its participants, we aim to find the best solution for predicting who will develop severe COVID-19 from a chest CT scan. We will make the final solution easily accessible for everyone. In total, $20,000 in AWS Credits will be awarded to the winning teams.

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.

The market of artificial intelligence (AI) software for radiology keeps growing which makes it difficult for pretty much anyone in the field to maintain oversight. That's where AI for Radiology comes in. Read more about what we aim to do, how we do it, and learn what products are on the market today.
How to build a global, scalable, low-latency, and secure machine learning medical imaging analysis platform on AWS
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.
