Dutch researchers used 90 computed tomography images of patients older than 55 to train an artificial intelligence-based 3D convolutional neural network and found that the algorithm had a 0.93 area under the curve in terms of accuracy in detecting vertebral compression fractures. The findings, presented at the Radiological Society of North America's annual meeting, showed the technology "will eventually lead to clinically relevant results," researcher Joeri Nicolaes said.
