Translating the Jargon

A Primer on Machine Learning

Machine Learning (ML) and other artificial intelligence (AI) tools have become a staple in the non-medical and medical news as these techniques are applied to increasingly complex challenges.

ML 101: The Radiologist's Basic Guide

From IBM's Watson to CAD, most radiologists have heard of machine learning. But do you know how this technique is already used in the field? Plus, what does the future hold? The ACR Bulletin brings you FAQs so you can be sure to have the basics down pat.
