Deep learning can quantify CAC on low-dose CT
November 29, 2017 -- CHICAGO - A deep-learning algorithm can automatically calculate coronary artery calcium (CAC) scores from lung cancer screening CT exams and facilitate risk stratification in these patients, according to research presented on Tuesday at RSNA 2017.  Discuss
PET/CT, MRI foretell developing neurofibromas
November 28, 2017 -- CHICAGO - Researchers from Spain are following the adage "forewarned is forearmed" by using PET/CT and MRI to predict which lesions could progress to malignant neurofibromas. They presented their findings on Sunday at RSNA 2017.  Discuss
Innovative imaging in the era of precision radiology
November 27, 2017 -- CHICAGO - Radiologists must be keen to explore, invent, and transform in a continuous effort to reinvent radiology. Indeed, it is now time for radiology to be proactive in advancing new technology to enhance the value of medicine, RSNA 2017 President Dr. Richard Ehman said in his opening address.  Discuss
Gadolinium: EU nations get 1 year to implement EMA ruling

MRI discovers heart damage among male triathletes
November 24, 2017 -- Using late gadolinium-enhanced MRI scans, German researchers found myocardial fibrosis, or scarring of the heart, among competitive male triathletes. An increased risk of scarring was associated with the amount of exercise performed, according to the group, who will present the study at next week's RSNA meeting in Chicago.  Discuss
Study: More breast screens equal higher cancer risk
November 23, 2017 -- A multinational team has shown that the earlier and more frequently a woman starts screening for breast cancer, the higher her lifetime risk of radiation-induced cancer. But the total effective risk falls as women get older, particularly when they hit 70 years old, according to a study published in the European Journal of Radiology.  Discuss
EuSoMII: AI's on cusp of deployment in cancer screening
November 22, 2017 -- Artificial intelligence (AI) promises to transform radiological reading, and the imaging community must gear up for revolutionary diagnostic tools far removed from today's visual representations, a U.K. expert said at the European Society of Medical Imaging Informatics (EuSoMII) meeting.  Discuss
Turin team illuminates CT use in cardiac surgery
November 21, 2017 -- The latest generation of CT scanners can provide excellent images of the coronary arteries, aortic annulus, and aortoiliac anatomy at a low contrast volume and a low radiation dose, even in patients with an irregular heartbeat or a high heart rate, according to new research from Turin, Italy.  Discuss
Overweight women need more frequent mammograms
November 21, 2017 -- Women who are overweight may need to be screened for breast cancer more often, as these women had larger tumors at diagnosis in a study being presented by researchers from Sweden at the upcoming RSNA 2017 meeting.  Discuss
