AI performs well when detecting intracranial hemorrhage on brain CT, but further research is ‘critical’
The authors of this study sought to examine the accuracy of CNNs compared to radiologists when detecting ICH on NCTC. With radiologists used as the reference standard, 5,119 records were retrospectively analyzed.
Upon comparison, pooled sensitivities, specificities and summary receiver operating characteristics curve (SROC) scores from the CNNs were 96%, 97% and 98%, respectively. When employing external validation datasets, the sensitivity figures dropped slightly to 95%.
Though the CNN performed well, the authors admit their study has limitations and further research…
