Profile of medical physicists looks set to rise sharply
April 15, 2014 -- The new European Union directive on the safety of ionizing radiation in medicine requires closer involvement of medical physics experts in radiology. This interview with Dr. Horst Lenzen discusses how this requirement can be met without placing excessive demands upon hospitals.
CAD can't outpoint second human reader in chest radiography
April 14, 2014 -- While computer-aided detection (CAD) software can improve lung nodule detection on chest radiographs, the use of CAD as a second reader can't yet outperform double reading by two human readers, Dutch researchers have reported.
Dutch place first MR-guided radiation therapy unit
April 14, 2014 -- Researchers at the University Medical Center in Utrecht, the Netherlands, have begun installation of what is thought to be the world's first high-field MRI-guided radiation therapy system. The clinical realization of this technology may represent the ultimate breakthrough in real-time image guidance.
Women find DBT comparable to standard mammography
April 11, 2014 -- The benefits of digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) have received a lot of press coverage, but what is less well-known is how women feel about the modality. Norwegian researchers discovered that women receiving DBT didn't find it to be more painful than standard mammography, nor were they concerned about its radiation health effects.
Reboot recommended on breast screening debate
April 10, 2014 -- It's time for both sides of the mammography screening debate to drop the same old arguments and start thinking about the problem of breast cancer in new ways, according to two opinion papers from Switzerland and the U.S.
Think deeply to cut out mistakes, urge Dutch prizewinners
April 9, 2014 -- Beware the dangers of intuitive thinking. That's the central message of new award-winning research from the Netherlands about cognitive errors, which includes 20 practical tips on how to avoid typical mistakes.
Do we all have to be Matisse to achieve research success?
April 9, 2014 -- French artist Henri Matisse was driven by immense enthusiasm for his work, but "mere mortals" need real incentives to get involved in areas like research. The age of the pure, idealistic (underpaid) researcher has now passed, according to guest columnist Dr. Anagha Parkar.
3T MRI gauges functional significance of coronary stenosis
April 8, 2014 -- Thanks to 3-tesla MRI, radiologists can now measure coronary flow velocity reserve (CFVR), noninvasively showing the significance of CT-detected stenosis in all three major arteries, researchers from Japan reported at last month's ECR 2014 in Vienna.
Spanish show the way on clinical decision support
April 7, 2014 -- One silver lining to the economic crisis in Spain is that it's causing radiologists there to look for innovative ways to do more with less. Clinical decision support can help accomplish that, and a Spanish hospital is testing software that could find its way into widespread use.
Proton CT can improve stopping power accuracy
April 7, 2014 -- The fine-tuning of proton therapy plans to maximize tumor dose and minimize dose to healthy tissue is held back by significant uncertainties in the stopping power estimates used to calculate proton range. Danish researchers have boosted the accuracy of these estimates with an image reconstruction technique combining x-ray cone-beam CT data with a proton CT scan.
Breast cancer radiotherapy boosts lung cancer risk
April 5, 2014 -- Women treated for breast cancer have a small but significantly higher risk of developing lung cancer, according to a large study presented at the European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology meeting in Vienna.
3D planning proves value in facial reconstructions
April 4, 2014 -- Facial reconstructive surgery appears to have turned a corner, judging by a recent case in the U.K. that would have challenged even the most experienced and skilled surgeon. A patient's face was rebuilt after a horrific motorbike accident, and 3D visualization techniques made the difference.
Digital mammography causes less 'harm' than film-screen
April 3, 2014 -- Screening for breast cancer with digital rather than film-screen mammography lowers recall and biopsy rates, suggesting that the technology causes less "harm" to women and the healthcare system in the form of overdiagnosis or unnecessary biopsies, according to a new Norwegian study published online on 1 April.
