He spoke at the 2019 Radiology AIMed conference. Deep learning algorithms require large amounts of patient case data to train the systems to read medical images automatically without human intervention. However, in pediatrics, there are often much lower numbers of normal and abnormal scans that can be used compared to vast amounts of adult exams available. This makes it difficult to train systems, so AI developers are coming up with innovative new ways to train their software. Compounding issues with training pediatric imaging AI is that the normal ranges change very quickly for young children due to their rapid development. He explained what is normal for a 2-year-old may not be normal for a 5-year-old.Desai and other pediatric physicians who spoke at the conference said AI could have a big impact on pediatric imaging where there are not enough specialists for the increasing image volumes.

He said there is a lack of state regulatory oversight for medical physicists or their assistants, partly because there are no guidelines from the medical societies. AAPM has created a series of policy statements to better define these the roles and requirements for all of these positions. Parker said the goal is to give state regulators the the definitions needed to create oversight guidelines. He spoke on this topic in sessions at the AAPM 2019 meeting. Find more news and videos from AAPM. CT Angiography (CTA) | August 07, 2019 VIDEO: Walk Around of a Siemens Go.Top Dedicated Cardiac Scanner This is a quick walk around of the new Siemens Somatom Go.top cardiovascular edition compact computed tomography (CT) scanner on display at the Society Of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT) 2019 meeting in July. It is aimed at cardiology office based imaging and was released this past spring at the American College of Cardiology (ACC) meeting.The system has removable tablets on each side of the scanner where the tech can adjust the machine, review scout scans and trigger the scanner. The idea is to improve workflow and allow the tech to remain at the bedside longer to be with the patient, rather tucked away in a remote control room using an intercom.The entire system is built into the gantry seen here, so there is no need for extra equipment in a closet, cabinet or server tower.It comes in a 128 slice configuration with 4 cm of anatomical coverage per rotation.It uses the Stellar detector and tin filtration to eliminate low energy photons and help lower dose. It can be programmed to aid workflow by automatically removing bone, create cured planar reconstructions, lung CAD and other post-processing features so more time can be spent on reading scans. The scanner also comes with a HeartFlow FFR-CT starter pack.Find more information on this system in these related articles:New Cardiovascular CT Technology Entering the MarketNew Technology Highlights on the ACC 2019 Exhibit Floor Cardiac Imaging | July 30, 2019 VIDEOS | EP LAB | JULY 26, 2019 VIDEO: What Electrophysiologists Need From CT Imaging Prior to AF and VT Ablations Mark Ibrahim, M.D., FACC, assistant professor of medicine and radiology, associate program director, advanced cardiac imaging fellowship, University of Utah, explains what radiologists and cardiologists need to know what is needed from CT imaging prior to ablation procedures for atrial fibrillation (AF) and ventricular fibrillation (VF).

House Committee Clears Bill to Undo HAMP CFPB Independence

first_img The “”House Financial Services Committee””:http://financialservices.house.gov/ signed off on largely symbolic legislation Wednesday that would repeal bailout funds under the Dodd-Frank Act, eliminate force-placed insurance requirements, and rope the “”Consumer Financial Protection Bureau””:http://www.consumerfinance.gov/ (CFPB) into future congressional appropriations processes.[IMAGE]Clearing the legislation by a party-line vote, committee members billed it as a way to slash $35 billion from the national deficit. “”Our nation is in a spending-driven debt crisis. The solution isn’t to tax Americans more, it’s for Washington to spend less,”” Rep. “”Spencer Bachus””:http://bachus.house.gov/ (R-Alabama), who chairs the committee, said in a statement. The committee said it rejected an amendment offered by Rep. “”Barney Frank””:http://frank.house.gov/ (D-Massachusetts) to replenish bailout funds for systemically important institutions in the event [COLUMN_BREAK]of another financial crisis.Just what would the bill accomplish? According to the nonpartisan “”Congressional Budget Office””:http://www.cbo.gov/, it would save taxpayers $10 billion over the next decade by slashing revenue for federal programs and agencies like the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP) and CFPB.The bill proposed doing away with bailout mechanisms under Dodd-Frank, appropriating only $200 million for the CFPB for the next fiscal year, and undoing HAMP entirely.HAMP remains an embattled program. The special inspector general for the Troubled Asset Relief Program ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô under which lawmakers established it in 2009 ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô found in a recent report that 782,609 permanent loan modifications fell short of the 3 to 4 million homeowners that administration officials said it would help.News that it disbursed only $2.54 billion of an available $30 billion to homeowners in distress continues to give ammunition to more conservative lawmakers with a desire to do away with it.The legislation also called for a temporary suspension of the mandatory purchase requirement under force-placed insurance and regular updates for Congress when revisions take place for maps of properties eligible for it.Sources tell us that it is unlikely the bill will become law this year. The House will need to take up the bill for a full-chamber vote and the Democratic Senate will need to conference it with similar legislation. in Government, Origination, Secondary Market, Servicing Share House Committee Clears Bill to Undo HAMP, CFPB Independencecenter_img Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Bailouts Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Dodd-Frank House Financial Services Committee Housing Affordability Lenders & Servicers Mortgage Insurance Processing Regulation Service Providers TARP Treasury Department 2012-04-19 Ryan Schuette April 19, 2012 458 Views last_img read more

US says deeply concerned by Turkeys intent to drill off Cyprus

first_imgThe United States is deeply concerned by Turkey’s announced intentions to begin offshore drilling operations in an area claimed by Cyprus as its exclusive economic zone, a State Department spokesperson said on Sunday.Turkish media on Saturday cited Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu as saying a Turkish ship had started drilling in areas for which northern Cypriot authorities had issued a permit, a move likely to stoke tensions with Cyprus and Greece.Turkey and the internationally recognised Greek Cypriot government have overlapping claims of jurisdiction for offshore oil and gas research in the eastern Mediterranean, a region thought to be rich in natural gas.“The United States is deeply concerned by Turkey’s announced intentions to begin offshore drilling operations in an area claimed by the Republic of Cyprus as its Exclusive Economic Zone,” said State Department spokesperson Morgan Ortagus.“This step is highly provocative and risks raising tensions in the region. We urge Turkish authorities to halt these operations and encourage all parties to act with restraint,” the statement said.Any escalation between Turkey and the United States could put more pressure on relations already strained on several fronts, including missile defense and military operations in Syria.Cavusoglu had said in February that Turkey would soon begin drilling for oil and gas near Cyprus and on Saturday state-owned Anadolu news agency reported him as saying during a trip to northern Cyprus that drilling had begun.Turkey launched its first drillship “Fatih” in October to drill off the coast of Turkey’s southern Antalya province. It said a second ship that it purchased would operate in the Black Sea, but was diverted to the Cyprus area.Breakaway north Cyprus, which is supported by Turkey, says any offshore wealth also belongs to them, as partners in the establishment of the Republic of Cyprus in 1960.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoModernizeIf Your Home Has Old Roofing, Read ThisModernizeUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoBishop says homosexuality passed on to the unborn when pregnant women enjoy anal sexUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
