Study Says AI Improves Sensitivity of Fracture Detection by 20 Percent


Researchers have noted that traumatic fractures are among the most commonly missed diagnoses.1,2 However, a new study suggests that artificial intelligence (AI) may have significant benefit in improving the assessment of fractures.3 In the study of 500 patients (268 men and 232 women), researchers compared unassisted assessment of acute fractures versus assessment with the assistance of an FDA-cleared algorithm (Boneview, Gleamer) and stand-alone use of AI. The authors found that AI assisted assessment had a 20 percent higher sensitivity (86 percent) of diagnosing fractures on radiographs in comparison to unassisted assessment (66 percent). The use of AI assistance led to a lower number of false negatives (26) in comparison to unassisted radiograph assessment (64), according to the study.
