IBM collected a dataset of 52,936 images from 13,234 women who underwent at least one mammogram between 2013 and 2017, and who had health records for at least one year prior to the mammogram. The algorithm was trained on 9,611 mammograms. Image courtesy of Radiology. January 13, 2017 — Hitachi Aloka Medical America Inc. announced in November that the Sofia 3-D Breast Ultrasound system received an Innovative Technology designation from Vizient Inc., the largest member-driven healthcare performance improvement company in the country. The designation was based on reviews of Sofia by hospital experts who attended Vizient’s Innovative Technology Exchange in September 2016. The event provided medical technology suppliers the opportunity to demonstrate their product and gain direct feedback from 1,300 onsite clinical experts and healthcare providers on the impact their products may have on improving clinical care and safety, or benefits to an organization’s care and business model.Designed for women whose breast density may result in an inconclusive mammogram, Sofia uses ultrasound to create a 3-D volume of the whole breast. Patients are imaged in the prone position, placing their breast onto Sofia’s radial scanning array.  With the breast compressed simply by laying prone, the patient rests comfortably during the system’s rapid automated 30-second scan. The acquired high-resolution ultrasound images are then sent to the Sofia workstation and reconstructed into a 3-D volume of the entire breast that can be quickly interpreted by the radiologist.“Due to the number of products and services being released and marketed as ‘innovative’, member hospitals truly value the peer-review system in place at Vizient to help them identify products worth further evaluation at their own facilities,” said Debbie Archer, director of procurement and leader of Vizient’s Innovative Technology program for suppliers.  “After a review of Sofia 3-D Breast Ultrasound system, Vizient’s members agreed this solution offers unique and incremental benefit over other products available on the market today, and recommended it for an Innovative Technology designation.”For more information: www.hitachi-aloka.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | Artificial Intelligence | July 18, 2019 Paragon Biosciences Launches Qlarity Imaging to Advance FDA-cleared AI Breast Cancer Diagnosis System Paragon Biosciences LLC announced the launch of its seventh portfolio company, Qlarity Imaging LLC, which was founded… read more News | Artificial Intelligence | August 13, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Could Yield More Accurate Breast Cancer Diagnoses University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) researchers have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system that… read more News | Mammography Reporting Software | July 26, 2019 Ikonopedia Releases Automated Combined Reporting Package at AHRA Ikonopedia showcased its recently released Automated Combined Reporting package and its entire suite of structured… read more News | PACS | August 09, 2019 Lake Medical Imaging Selects Infinitt for Multi-site RIS/PACS Infinitt North America will be implementing Infinitt RIS (radiology information system)/PACS (picture archiving and… read more Technology | Breast Biopsy Systems | July 24, 2019 Fujifilm Releases Tomosynthesis Biopsy Option for Aspire Cristalle Mammography System Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A.

Chicken feed add-ins

first_imgBy Stephanie SchupskaUniversity of GeorgiaIn recent years, poultry farmers and the U.S. ethanol industry have been in an economic fight over corn, which is used to feed flocks and make biofuel. But there could be a viable solution. Biofuel leftovers can be turned into chicken feed.“Biofuels are just another competitor for corn,” said Amy Batal, a poultry nutritionist with the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. “There’s so much demand, and many people have been freaked out that there are not enough supplies of corn.”Ethanol demand has driven corn demand in the U.S., which produced 6.5 million gallons of ethanol in 2007, according to the Renewable Fuels Association.Mixing in algaeCompanies are now looking to use the oil in algae to make biodiesel and hope to feed the remaining algae meal to poultry and other livestock. Batal’s research will determine if it is a feasible feed additive.Biofuel byproducts like algae meal can be added to chicken feed, but first nutritionists like Batal have to make sure they are safe for chickens. And in the case of algae, that they won’t make the meat taste like seaweed-wrapped sushi.“If they use it, we have to know how it will affect not only performance but also if it will affect palability of the diet, pellet quality and can it flow through a feed mill,” she said.She also wants to determine if and how algae might affect chicken meat and eggs. For example, “if you feed them too much fish meal, chickens can have a fishy taste,” Batal said.Ethanol leftoversAlongside her algae research, Batal works with more common corn-based ethanol and biodiesel byproducts like glycerin and distiller’s dried grains.Distiller’s dried grains have been around since whiskey was first brewed. Due to the ethanol industry, there is a lot more of it now. It’s an acceptable feed because it has protein, fat and phosphorus, Batal said. Currently, 80 percent of distiller’s dried grains goes to feed cows, 8 percent goes to swine and 6 percent to poultry.The problem with the grain, she said, is that its quality can vary, and it isn’t always available. But recent improvement in shipping straight from ethanol plants to feed mills has helped.Biodiesel byproductBatal is also studying the use of pure-grade glycerin which can be used in cosmetics and soaps. The kind she is studying ranges in consistency from clear and water-like to dark and solid.“What we’ve found is there’s pretty much no one in the poultry industry using glycerin commercially,” she said. But as more companies are making biodiesel, the glycerin glut is increasing. “If they can get a handle on the variability of glycerin and the price drops you may see glycerin in some poultry diets,” she said. “Our studies have shown that it’s relatively safe depending on what it has in it.”She’s found that glycerin may be used in small amounts as a partial fat replacement in broiler diets. Too much of it will keep chicken feed from forming into pellets, though, the preferred form for chickens.In the case of both distiller’s grains and glycerin, Batal said that poultry producers should always test the products before they add them to feed. There will likely be more byproducts from alternative fuels to use in the future, she said.“A lot of the ethanol industry is not mature,” she said. “They’re still making modifications to make more money, which affects their byproducts.”(Stephanie Schupska is a news editor with the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.)last_img
