New workflow for knee MRI can boost efficiency
July 31, 2014 -- Prize-winning researchers from Pamplona, Spain, have devised a practical system for reading knee MRI scans that can help to improve efficiency, both in terms of speed and accuracy of detection of knee pathology. It may prove particularly beneficial for newcomers to the field.
Radiology interpretation performance may slip late in sessions
July 30, 2014 -- Radiologists may take less time to interpret images and see changes in their performance over the course of a long reading session, according to analysis from Warwick, U.K. But it's not clear if that dynamic represents an actual clinical concern or merely effects attributable to the study designs.
Statistics plain and simple: Is there such a thing?
July 30, 2014 -- The lively debate over screening mammography has highlighted the importance of statistics, but many authors use the wrong methods, draw general conclusions from a small number of case studies, and confuse correlation and causation. The Maverinck investigates.
Honey, I shrunk the magnet: 7T MRI runs cryogen-free
July 29, 2014 -- Looking to fill a void in the market for preclinical MRI and eliminate the need for labs to hunt down scarce supplies of liquid helium, MR Solutions has developed a new cryogen-free, compact 7-tesla scanner for research applications. The system generated great interest at the global MRI congress held in Milan, Italy, during May.
New chief of German breast group faces full agenda
July 28, 2014 -- Dr. Markus Müller-Schimpfle is the new chair of the Breast Imaging Working Group of the German Radiological Society. In this article, he maps out the challenges he envisages during his time in office. He is keen to ensure Europe does not blindly adopt every idea to come out of the U.S.
Marsden group uses 3D printer to create molecular phantom
July 25, 2014 -- Researchers from one of Europe's top cancer research facilities think they have achieved a technological milestone by successfully developing a patient-specific molecular imaging phantom using a 3D printer, according to a study published in the August issue of Medical Physics.
Belgians find subtle changes after mammography goes digital
July 25, 2014 -- After a Belgian breast screening program went digital, researchers found subtle differences in performance between digital and analog mammography systems. One of them was a major difference in radiation dose, based on whether sites used digital or computed radiography.
U.K. team scoops top prize for chest wall deformities study
July 24, 2014 -- Developing a keen awareness of the radiological features of congenital chest wall deformities is a useful clinical skill, and imaging can also illustrate pre- and postsurgical appearances for more conditions requiring surgical correction, according to award-winning research from a top facility in London.
Scots get set for Usain Bolt, Mo Farah, et al
July 23, 2014 -- The Commonwealth Games begin today and is the largest sporting event ever held in Scotland. Musculoskeletal radiologist Dr. David Ritchie and his team of volunteers are prepared for everything and have already been keeping busy in the state-of-the-art polyclinic in Glasgow.
How congress revenue funds ESR member services
July 23, 2014 -- Complaints about the ECR's registration fees are not hard to come by, but it's crucial to remember the European Society of Radiology (ESR) uses congress revenues to pay for other services for its 60,000-plus members. This article explains the rationale behind the approach.
New-generation dual-source CT heart scans prove fast and sharp
July 22, 2014 -- Operating the new third-generation dual-source CT scanner 24/7 has revealed a rapid system with robust imaging capabilities and an array of new features to perform heart scans at low doses, according to researchers from a leading German facility.
'Tiered' CT approach shows promise in coronary disease
July 22, 2014 -- In patients with stable angina and suspected coronary disease, a "tiered" approach to CT imaging finds -- so far at least -- that calcium scoring is all many patients need. That's right, for most patients there's simply no need to start with the big imaging guns, researchers in Rotterdam report.
4D peripheral CT often beats dynamic MRI
July 21, 2014 -- Pinpointing flow problems in the peripheral arteries is a task that is typically handed over to dynamic MR angiography. But often, bone-subtracted 4D CT angiography can do a better job, according to German researchers.
