EJR: Everything you need to know about CT dose
August 12, 2014 -- All healthcare staff have a responsibility to avoid unnecessarily high radiation dose, but the key players remain diagnostic radiologists who can and should integrate the necessary information and decide upon scan protocols, according to an article published by European Journal of Radiology.
Lung CAD scheme aces preliminary test
August 11, 2014 -- A newly revamped lung computer-aided detection (CAD) algorithm has shown outstanding accuracy in a study of lung lesions from a database and generated few false positives, according to a study published online on 24 July by European Radiology.
Siemens to sell Health Services to Cerner

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.
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.
