  • Digital X-Ray Library: A New Concept in Radiology Education

    A digital X-ray library system is vital for an academic radiology department. Existing commercial solutions for creating image collections are often not suitable for radiologic applications. For these reasons, we developed our own digital archive system and image collection database system. We chose a database development tool that allows rapid design and development of multimedia, user-friendly programs supporting Web-based applications. With this software, we developed the three main functions of our system: a. Data import function fully integrated with our different modalities. b. Data editing by means of simple and powerful management software, which is connected to the database server remotely. c. Data sharing and distribution on the viewing stations with the ability to create stand-alone CD-ROMs and with a Web server for online access by using any Web browser. The system implemented was adopted by all of our department members, and the growth of database content was clear evidence of the success and acceptance of the system by the users. Storage of selected interesting cases in the image databases will become a natural and common trend among our radiologists during their daily clinical routine.

  • Implementation of a PACS & RIS in a Private Radiology Center: A Three Year Experience

    Since the year 2003 till the present time, a picture archiving and communication system (PACS) was implemented with the radiology information system (RIS) to improve the quality, user-friendliness, accessibility, and management of radiology data (images, reports, databases, knowledge) of a large number of patients in a private radiology centre in Egypt five servers and 45 personal computers (PCs) form the integrated system (in two different branches of the centre). The first server is dedicated to management and archiving of digital imaging and communications in medicine (DICOM) images (PACS server). The second server is dedicated to uploading cases on the internet (web server). The rest of the servers are dedicated to management of the RIS and archiving of patient data, reports (word documents), and images in the digital imaging and communications in medicine (DICOM) and the joint photographic experts group (JPEG) formats. There are two main client-server networks of imaging modalities (magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, digital radiography), one in each of the two branches. The PACS server is located within the main branch, which is linked remotely with other branch via high speed dedicated frame relay connection diagnostic medical images within the centre are displayed in the DICOM format for reviewing and consultation. Images and reports can be distributed to referring physicians, in the form of Microsoft word documents and JPEG images, which can also be used for quick and easy archiving and distribution. Also secured patients' examinations can be viewed by the referring physician over the internet through the connection with the web server.

  • Predictive modeling to identify scheduled radiology appointments resulting in non-attendance in a hospital setting

    No-show appointments are a troublesome, but frequent, occurrence in radiology hospital departments and private practice. Prior work in medical appointment no-show prediction has focused on general practice and has not considered features specific to the radiology environment. We collect data from 16 years of outpatient examinations in a multi-site hospital radiology department. Data from the radiology information system (RIS) are fused with patient income estimated from U.S. Census data. Features were categorized into three groups: Patient, Exam, and Scheduling. Models based on the total feature set and separately on each feature group were developed using logistic regression to assess the per-appointment likelihood of no-show. After five-fold cross- validation, no-show prediction using the total feature set from 554,611 appointments yielded an area under the curve (AUC) of 0.770 ± 0.003. Feature groups that were most informative in the prediction of no-show appointments were those based on the type of exam and on scheduling attributes such as the lead time of scheduling the appointment. A data-driven no-show prediction model like the one presented here could be useful to schedulers in the implementation of an automated scheduling policy or the assignment of examinations with a high risk of no-show to lower impact appointment slots.

  • Evaluation of radiology data warehouse implementation on education, research, and quality assurance

    Implementation of data warehouse in the field of business has been profitable for the company. Nevertheless, the data warehouse implementation has not been widely applied in the field of healthcare. The purpose of this research was to determine the effectiveness of radiological data warehouse implementation in the fields of education, research, and guarantee the quality of radiology services in the hospital. Evaluation was carried out to the radiology data warehouse dashboard that had been previously developed. Specific targets to be achieved were to get input from the radiologist for the development of radiology data warehouse implemented in the hospital or radiology clinic. The methods used were data collection through literature study and questionnaires as well as radiology data warehouse evaluation in accordance with Inmon (2005). The results obtained from this study were to know the degree of interest and radiologists perception about the radiology data warehouse dashboard. It was concluded that the most important report for radiologist was the dashboard of patient demographics and the non-volatile characteristics required special attention because it was quite important for all dashboards.

  • Text mining in radiology reports

    Text mining is a popular research topic with application areas ranging from security to media and marketing. More specifically, text mining has been applied in biomedical area for the categorization of radiology reports, which is a challenging problem due to their free-text and unstructured format. State-of-the-art in radiology report mining has mostly focused on English text, while studies on Turkish reports are scarce. Accordingly, in this work we propose to employ text mining for categorization of Turkish radiology reports. We automatically remove header and footer of the reports, apply frequency analysis on the remaining report text, and perform categorization of reports to anatomical regions using pre-selected keywords. The accuracy of the proposed solution is measured as 84.3% over a 66-report test set.

  • RadStream: An interactive visual display of radiology workflow for delay detection in the clinical imaging process

    Given the high caseload most radiology departments face on a daily basis, workflow streaming becomes a necessity. In addition, workflow optimization can significantly reduce cost and increase efficiency and productivity. In this paper, we present RadStream: a web-based retrospective, exploratory, interactive data visualization tool that provides a comprehensive overview of the radiology department's daily activities. We worked closely with radiology staff to analyze the department workflow and classify the analytical tasks required by domain experts in order to inform the design of the tool, and together we abstracted the steps and factors involved in the clinical imaging process. The visual representation emphasizes the time interval between the different steps and uses color-coding to denote the status of a process (on- time, acceptably late, late) in compliance with standard radiology turnaround times (TATs). RadStream is an ongoing research project. Its main focus is on monitoring performance with special attention to duration, delays, and compliance with standard TATs. RadStream is currently undergoing evaluation by radiology staff using hospital data and real scenarios to evaluate its effectiveness, and the initial feedback received is very promising. Working with domain experts, we seek to provide a tool that helps monitor and improve the radiology department's activities. And based on a few review sessions with staff radiologists, we sensed a general excitement about RadStream as a quality assurance tool. We have also collected some constructive feedback we can build upon for future releases.

  • Automatic Extraction of Major Osteoporotic Fractures from Radiology Reports using Natural Language Processing

    In this study, we developed a rule-based natural language processing (NLP) algorithm for automatic extraction of six major osteoporotic fractures from radiology reports. We validated the NLP algorithm using a dataset of radiology reports from Mayo Clinic with the gold standard constructed by medical experts. The micro-averaged sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value (PPV), negative predictive value (NPV), and F1-score of the proposed NLP algorithm are 0.796, 0.978, 0.972, 0.831, 0.874, respectively. The highest F1-score was achieved at 0.958 for the extraction of proximal femur fracture while the lowest was 0.821 for the hand and finger/wrists fracture. The experimental results verified the effectiveness of the proposed rule-based NLP algorithm in the automatic extraction of major osteoporotic fractures from radiology reports.

  • A touchless interface for interventional radiology procedures

    Interventional radiology is a medical sub-specialty of radiology which utilizes minimally-invasive image-guided procedures to diagnose and treat diseases in nearly every organ system. The entire process is pivoted on imaging and the way surgeon or doctor interacts with the images to guide him/her through the entire procedure. The process still remains to be a challenge to interact and manipulate objects in an image in sterile medical environment where keyboard, mice and touch screen are potential source of infection. This paper aims at investigating a potential solution with a low- cost, touch-free motion-tracking (hand gestures) device for interactions with image visualization environment. The solution involves a device that tracks a person's hand gestures and its motion and custom software that translates motion information obtained with the motion-tracking device into commands to review and manipulate images on a workstation. This solution would yield to a Touchless Sterile Interface for effortless image interactions in Interventional Radiology procedures.

  • Mining similar radiology reports using BoW and Fuzzy C-means clustering

    Finding similar diagnoses for the same region are vital for patients. In this paper, we aim to find the similarity radiology reports based on bag-of-words (BoW) and Fuzzy C-Means Clustering methods. A double-layer structure is applied. Firstly, extracting features from data BoW method is applied and then Fuzzy C-Means algorithm is performed to cluster the blocks into the similar cluster and the non-similar cluster. 457 radiology reports were examined which were collected from a research and education hospital in Istanbul. Data were tested according to the 23 regions and 137 diagnosis. By the opinion of the radiologist a vocabulary consists of these regions and diagnosis were created. Experimental results on data sets have shown that for the standard documents BoW and Fuzzy C-Means Clustering can be used to find similarity.
