Diagnosing Fractures With AI

JAMA. 2018;320(1):23. doi:10.1001/jama.2018.8565

An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm that can help clinicians detect wrist fractures in adults has received FDA approval.

The Imagen OsteoDetect is a type of computer-aided detection and diagnostic software that uses machine learning techniques to identify signs of distal radius fracture during reviews of posterior-anterior and medial-lateral x-ray images of the wrist. The software marks the location of a fracture on the image to aid clinicians with their diagnoses.
