An estimated 5,000 delegates are expected at ICR 2014, to be held in Dubai in September.
Standard mammography image processing best for calcifications
August 5, 2014 -- Standard image processing algorithms help mammography detect calcification clusters more effectively than low-contrast or film-screen algorithms and could reduce false positives, according to a U.K. study published in the August issue of the American Journal of Roentgenology.
Danes focus attention on patient positioning in knee exams
August 4, 2014 -- In radiographic examinations, the standing weight-bearing position can be of crucial importance for the patellar position in the trochlear groove and for visualization of osteoarthritis in the medial patellofemoral joint, Danish researchers have found.
