UKRC video: Implementing structured reports
June 17, 2013 -- What practical steps must be taken to realize the alleged benefits of structured reports? Dr. Jan Bosmans, PhD, from Ghent in Belgium, and healthcare informatics columnist Dr. Neelam Dugar give their advice in a video recorded at last week's U.K. Radiological Congress (UKRC).
Finnish study finds unnecessary pediatric CT exams
February 20, 2009 -- Nearly one-third of a sample of pediatric CT scans from a hospital in Finland were found to be clinically unjustifiable, according to research published online in the journal European Radiology.
MRI, MDCT err in estimating cardiac functional parameters
February 20, 2009 -- MRI and MDCT assessments of left ventricular functional parameters were inaccurate when evaluated on a moving heart phantom with known parameters, according to a study in European Radiology. CT, particularly dual-source CT, did outperform MRI, however.
Bigger MRI machine may reduce claustrophobia
February 20, 2009 -- WASHINGTON (Reuters), Feb 20 - Swiss researchers who swapped out some of the parts of an MRI scanner said on Wednesday they not only made it more efficient, but also less claustrophobic.
Italian study backs tomosynthesis over DR for lung pathology
February 18, 2009 -- A study by Italian researchers has added to the growing body of evidence indicating that digital radiography (DR) with a tomosynthesis capability is superior to conventional DR in detecting pulmonary alterations that could be signs of lung pathology. But tomosynthesis wasn't totally without drawbacks.
Screening CT colonography and colonoscopy similarly effective
February 18, 2009 -- NEW YORK (Reuters Health), Feb 18 - CT colonography (CTC), also known as virtual colonoscopy, performs as well as traditional optical colonoscopy in detecting advanced adenomas in an average-risk population, results of a study conducted in Germany indicate.
MRI detects bleeding in the heart after a heart attack
February 13, 2009 -- British researchers are using MRI to image hemorrhaging inside the heart to determine how much damage has been caused by a heart attack. Results of the study from the Medical Research Council Clinical Sciences Centre were published online in the journal Radiology.
Radiosurgery advised for postpneumonectomy recurrent lung cancer
February 13, 2009 -- A large study of patients who developed contralateral lung cancer after having a pneumonectomy suggests that stereotactic radiation therapy is a curative option with minimal toxicity, even for high-risk patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Hospital boss slams new NHS computer system
February 13, 2009 -- LONDON (Reuters), Feb 13 - An NHS hospital boss criticized the new computerized medical records system on Friday, saying it has cost an extra 10 million pounds to implement and is slowing the rate at which patients are seen.
Multislice CT can help guide surgery for infective endocarditis
February 13, 2009 -- NEW YORK (Reuters Health), Feb 13 - In patients with infective endocarditis, the accuracy of multislice CT for detecting valvular abnormalities is close to that of transesophageal echocardiography, and the newer technique could help in surgical planning, according to a report in the February 3 Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
320-detector-row CT cuts dose in triple rule-out exams
February 12, 2009 -- Image quality is high and radiation dose is low when the so-called triple rule-out protocol is used with 320-detector-row CT to scan patients with chest pain, according to researchers from Berlin.
Virtual colonoscopy beginners do better with 3D data
February 5, 2009 -- Novice virtual colonoscopy readers detect more polyps reading 3D endoluminal datasets of electronically cleansed data compared to 2D images. But experienced readers aren't daunted by either 2D datasets or fecal residues, turning in a similar performance regardless of the reading environment.
JAMA study finds wide variation in cardiac CTA dose
February 3, 2009 -- Coronary CT angiography (CTA) providers are failing to protect their patients from high radiation dose -- with dose levels varying widely between facilities, according to a new multinational study in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
