An artificial intelligence (AI) tool helps doctors predict the cancer risk in lung nodules seen on CT, according to a new study published in the journal Radiology.

In the study, six radiologists and six pulmonologists made estimates of malignancy risk for nodules using CT imaging data alone. They also made management recommendations such as CT surveillance or a diagnostic procedure for each case without and with the AI tool.

Huddle Up!

In a football game, the action usually doesn’t begin until both teams huddle up to call the right play. The same thing should happen in hospital operating rooms and ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs).

Yoder believes that the key to successful huddling is making sure that there’s value for everyone involved. “If the staff doesn’t think huddling is valuable, they won’t attend,” she says. “Or even worse, they’ll make it a negative experience for everyone else.”
