Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The aim of this Special Issue is to consolidate the latest research, advancements, and insights into the role of artificial intelligence in breast imaging. It will encompass a range of topics including, but not limited to, machine learning algorithms, deep learning techniques in mammography, ultrasound, MRI, and tomosynthesis, AI in risk prediction models, and the ethical implications of AI in clinical practice. The scope of this Special Issue also includes the exploration of AI's impact on workflow optimization, diagnostic accuracy, and patient outcomes, and he challenges in implementing AI tools in breast imaging practice.

The Special Issue will seek contributions that offer the following:

  • Original research on AI algorithms that enhance the detection and characterization of breast pathology.
  • Discussions of the integration of AI in current breast imaging modalities, highlighting improvements and outcomes.
  • Reviews on the current state and future perspectives of AI applications in breast imaging.
  • Examinations of the ethical, legal, and social implications of AI in the clinical setting, particularly in breast imaging.
  • Analyses of the economic impact and cost-effectiveness of AI implementation in breast cancer screening and diagnosis.
