DWI MRI boosts edema detection in acute myocarditis
June 3, 2014 -- Diffusion-weighted MRI (DWI) is similar to -- and probably a little better than -- conventional black blood short tau inversion-recovery MR images when it comes to detecting edema in patients with myocarditis, the authors of a new study from Spain have found.
DRK: Cardiac MRI can provide clear picture on chest pain
June 3, 2014 -- When patients arrive in an accident and emergency department showing symptoms of a myocardial infarction, a catheter-based examination may be inconclusive, but nine times out of 10 MRI will lead to the correct diagnosis, according to a study presented at last week's 95th congress of the German Society of Radiology (DRK).
CAD boosts polyp detection on CTC for intermediate readers too
June 2, 2014 -- In one of the first studies to look at moderately experienced readers rather than experts or novices, computer-aided detection (CAD) significantly improved polyp detection sensitivity at CT colonography (CTC), according to a new study in European Radiology.
CADx helps characterize focal prostate lesions
June 2, 2014 -- Thanks mostly to its ability to improve specificity, computer-aided diagnosis (CADx) software can bolster characterization of focal prostate lesions on multiparametric MRI scans, French researchers reported in the June issue of Radiology.
FDG-PET/MRI fusion differentiates breast masses
June 2, 2014 -- While breast MRI is highly sensitive for breast cancer, its specificity can be a little lackluster. Fusing FDG-PET and breast MRI can help, however, Brazilian researchers reported in an article published online on 27 May in the European Journal of Radiology.
DRK: Study shows MRI supports detection of endometriomas
May 30, 2014 -- HAMBURG - MRI can be used to detect endometriomas, difficult-to-detect cells from the lining of the uterus found outside the uterine cavity, and also guide surgical intervention, according to a presentation from the 95th congress of the German Society of Radiology (DRK).
3D reconstruction of Richard III's spine confirms scoliosis
May 30, 2014 -- In the latest revelation relating to the discovery of the skeleton of King Richard III of England, a 3D printed reconstruction of his spine based on CT data confirms he suffered from the spinal condition scoliosis, although he wasn't quite the "hunchback" as portrayed by writers.
Molecular imaging offers promise on tumor heterogeneity
May 29, 2014 -- New tracers and imaging techniques for the assessment of heterogeneity are emerging fast, especially in the context of examining metastasis and predicting metastatic potential, but there is a significant need for large patient trials and applications, according to researchers at a top U.K. facility.
European debate arises over best PET/CT parameters for NSCLC
May 29, 2014 -- An interesting dialogue has developed on the worth of maximum standardized uptake values from FDG-PET/CT scans to accurately diagnose mediastinal disease in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients. In an editorial in European Journal of Radiology, Italian researchers question conclusions from a recently published Irish study.
DRK: Conventional x-ray must not fall into oblivion
May 28, 2014 -- HAMBURG - X-ray is losing ground to technologies often seen as sexier, and young radiologists tend to disregard it too quickly. However, the technology has many benefits and there is an obvious need for a turnaround, Dr. Stefan Diederich said at the opening press conference of the 95th congress of the German Society of Radiology (DRK).
Sami Khedira et al owe big debt to knee imaging advances
May 28, 2014 -- Serious injuries incurred by high-profile athletes such as German and Real Madrid footballer Sami Khedira have focused attention on knee problems. In many sports, the knee has to withstand incessant strain, and imaging plays a vital role in directing patient management.
Be like a spider, not an ostrich, pleads Reekers
May 27, 2014 -- Radiologists should be like an active spider in a web, and must take the future into their own hands and not act like an ostrich, according to a thought-provoking and visionary editorial by one of Europe's leading interventional radiologists, Dr. Jim Reekers, PhD.
Turkish radiology prepares to step into spotlight
May 26, 2014 -- The European Society of Radiology (ESR) has invited researchers in Turkey to outline the latest advances in national imaging at ECR 2015, and clearly they're relishing the prospect. The subjects chosen highlight the emergence of high-end imaging in the country.
