X-ray images are being used in the domain of radiography. The number of X-ray images to be analyzed is increasing and it is becoming difficult to analyze a large number of images in a short period of time. To do this task efficiently and effectively and do scanning of a large number of X-ray images in a short period of time artificial intelligence algorithms are used.

Artificial Intelligence algorithms are being used to develop applications that can analyze x-ray images. Machine learning and deep learning algorithms are used to process a large volume of x-ray images in a large dataset. To do this different artificial intelligence apps are under-development.

Artificial Intelligence has exhibited high performance in processing X-ray images. Artificial Intelligence is being used to improve the radiology workflow. Artificial Intelligence algorithms are being used to design computer applications that are capable of determining a pattern in the X-ray images. The X-ray images are being analyzed to determine the variation in the shape, density, and margin patterns of lesions. These patterns were used to diagnose X-ray images.

The approaches that are used to design computer application to analyze X-ray images includes – rules-based approaches and machine learning techniques. The features of images are fed into the algorithm, the algorithm uses the input feature to process x-ray images.

The features of images are extracted using the Fourier analysis, matrices that are used to find co-occurrence of images, and transform wavelet. Images are analyzed using the neural network. In addition to this convolutional neural network is also used to extract and classify different features of images. The most commonly used convolutional neural network includes first, ResNet, Second DenseNet, third AlexNet, and fourth GoogleNet.

Deep learning algorithms are also used to train the designed network and process the features of images. The training of the network is done on different radiograph datasets. The most commonly used dataset to train the network includes the ChestX-ray-14 dataset.

ChestX-ray I4 uses a natural language processing algorithm to process different features of images. 

Artificial Intelligence algorithms are used to find the feature in the x-ray images. One such example is CheXNet. CheXNet is a convolutional neural network. This Convolutional Neural Network uses a ChestX-ray I4 data set. The trained Convolutional Neural Network is able to filter x-ray images. 

Artificial Intelligence algorithms are used to train the network using the cross-sectional images and diagnoses conducted at pathology. Artificial Intelligence algorithm process dataset obtained at clinical settings. The algorithms are trained to process pulmonary images or pleural images the image processing is done using the different labels put on the images.

Deep learning algorithms are trained on Chest-Xray and MIMIC datasets. The image dataset is annotated to train the algorithm. Machine learning algorithms are trained to do binary classification.

Microsoft has developed a deep learning model to process chest X-ray images. To predict disease Microsoft is using a framework based on a deep learning algorithm – this framework includes Keras or PyTorch. Microsoft is training its deep learning algorithm on a chest x-ray dataset obtained from the national institute of health.

Convolutional Network

This is a technique that comes from the domain of machine learning algorithms. The Convolutional Neural Network requires computer hardware that accelerates the processing of x-ray images. 

Convolutional Neural Network is used to process images. Convolutional Neural networks filter input features of images and develop image maps. Convolutional Neural Network is used to recognize images and videos, recommend images, classify images, etc, this network is also used in the domain of medicine to analyze images. The Convolutional Neural Network can process natural language processing and analyze financial analysis.

Convolutional Neural networks work on multilayer perceptrons, this is used to build a fully connected network. The full connectivity ensures data overfitting. To prevent data overfitting parameters are penalized and connectivity is trimmed. 

Convolutional Neural networks use hierarchical relationships and use this relationship to identify patterns hidden in the x-ray images. Convolutional Neural networks exhibit low connectivity and on the complexity side, it is high. 

Convolutional Neural networks are used to mimic processes that belong to the domain of biology. Convolutional Neural networks are trained to automate learning and do optimization using filters. 

In Convolutional Neural networks convolution is a mathematical function that is responsible for replacing matrix multiplication. The convolution network process a set of pixels and these pixels are used to process image and associated patterns.

The Convolutional Neural networks consist of the input layer, a set of hidden layers, and a set of output layers. The Convolutional Neural network is also known as a feed-forward neural network. The middle layer of Convolutional Neural networks is not visible. 

Convolutional Neural networks are used to recognize images and are used in the domain of computer vision. The Convolutional Neural networks are also used in digit classification and to classify images having higher resolution.

X-Ray App

To examine medical images it is not possible to remain at the workstation always, to overcome this it is possible to examine medical images using hand-held devices. These hand-held devices are password-protected, real-time applications, and can display images. These images are displayed on a large number of factors. These factors include first SPECT, second PET, third CT, fourth MRI, and fifth ultrasound.

The mobile app can examine medical images and can filter the images using features on which the mobile app is trained. The mobile app can examine contours, process image histograms, and can examine isodose curves.

Nuance PowerShare is a mobile app that can process reports and images. This mobile app supports cloud storage and the images can be shared and if required can be referred. The accessed images can be used as required and can be zoomed in if required. 

Another app that supports image processing includes LifeIMAGE. This app can process images related to patients and their associated data. This app supports teamwork and a group of radiologists can build groups and discuss the patient reports and associated images. This app can maintain the history of patients thus the patients do not have to be exposed to the radio x-rays again and again thus the patients can be protected from x-rays.


Artificial Intelligence is improving the techniques that are used to care for patients. Artificial Intelligence is used to process X-ray images. Artificial Intelligence is used to develop apps that can process radiographs related to the chest and other associated concerned parts.

Deep learning algorithms are used to process images emerging from image datasets. The development of artificial intelligence-based apps can process x-ray images and can support tasks that are difficult to interpret.
