Researchers Use AI To Measure Radiologists’ Bias In Interpretation Of Mammograms.

Aunt Minnie (6/29) reports researchers have used artificial intelligence (AI) technology to “analyze how radiologists read mammograms,” according to a study published in the Journal of Medical Imaging. The researchers from Oak Ridge National Laboratory “used an artificial intelligence tool to assess the level of bias” – such as context bias and the radiologists’ previous diagnostic experiences – in mammography interpretations by tracking the “eye movements of three board-certified radiologists and seven radiology residents.” The study “found that the radiologists’ analyses of mammograms were significantly influenced by context bias, and while radiology trainees were perhaps most vulnerable to the phenomenon, even more-experienced radiologists fell victim to some degree.”
