Actionable reports and the teleradiology debate
July 16, 2014 -- Technology has transformed radiologists' reporting practices, allowing for flexible working and sharing of workloads, but this should not compromise a radiologist's ability to provide actionable reports. Face-to-face dialogue remains a key factor, writes Dr. Neelam Dugar.
MRI use linked to patient mortality in Irish study
July 15, 2014 -- A new study of MRI use at a hospital in Ireland paints a complex picture of the modality, with higher in-hospital mortality and longer hospital stays for patients who got MRI scans. However, this could be because the patients were more acutely ill, according to an article in the July Journal of the American College of Radiology.
Ultrasound visualizes odor perception in brain
July 15, 2014 -- A neurofunctional ultrasound method can provide in vivo visualization of odor perception in the brain, shedding light on the functioning of the olfactory system, researchers from France reported in an article published in NeuroImage.
German-led team develops novel x-ray phase-contrast method
July 14, 2014 -- Using a laboratory source with unprecedented brightness, scientists from three European institutions have found a way to achieve high-quality x-ray phase-contrast imaging with lower radiation dose. A major goal is to find clinical applications, including cancer diagnosis and osteoporosis.
ESTI: New 3D tool displays promise for rib evaluations
July 14, 2014 -- An automated curved planar reformatting software tool that presents the ribs in an "unfolded" view is starting to prove its clinical value, according to a presentation at the European Society of Thoracic Imaging (ESTI) annual meeting, held last month in Amsterdam.
Rotterdam group helps gauge coronary disease severity
July 14, 2014 -- At the same time that a validated fractional flow reserve CT angiography application seems to be nearing U.S. Food and Drug administration approval, a new contender for gauging the severity of coronary disease at CT is pushing its way into the ring. Furthermore, it promises to be a simpler solution, according to a team of Dutch researchers.
FFDM study not needed with contrast mammography exam
July 11, 2014 -- A separate full-field digital mammography (FFDM) study may not be necessary when performing contrast-enhanced digital mammography exams, as the low-energy image may be sufficient for interpretation, according to a new European Journal of Radiology study. This ultimately means a reduction in patient dose.
Medical detective work: Identifying the unidentified
July 10, 2014 -- Nothing happens without interdisciplinary cooperation at Marburg University Clinic's new Unidentified Diseases Centre in Germany. Dr. Annika Keulers explains about the fascinating work going on in the facility.
Why teleradiology companies must strive for quality
July 9, 2014 -- Outsourcing some reporting and out-of-hours work in overstretched and underresourced departments can be of great benefit, both in terms of accuracy and timeliness of reports, provided safeguards are built in and a rigorous approach to quality control is implemented, writes the responsible officer of a teleradiology company.
World Cup controversy over Neymar CT scan goes viral
July 8, 2014 -- World Cup fever is taking grip among the normally calm and balanced medical imaging community, it seems. A number of imaging specialists are disputing whether a CT scan posted on the Internet of injured Brazilian football star Neymar Junior is authentic, casting doubt on the nature of his injuries.
PACS downtime comes under growing scrutiny
July 8, 2014 -- As more and more core care processes move from paper-based to e-support, system or service uptime now plays a critical role in provider organizations, and planned or unplanned PACS downtime can be a serious problem, according to German expert Joachim Zaers.
4-scan PET/MRI exams improve breast imaging
July 7, 2014 -- Austrian researchers added PET/CT to a package of three MRI sequences to create fused PET/MR images, which they found aided in the differentiation of suspicious breast lesions, according to a new study published online in Clinical Cancer Research.
Optical monitoring assesses HIFU damage
July 4, 2014 -- Measuring changes in tissue optical properties could provide a low-cost method for monitoring high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), according to new research from the U.S. and U.K. It's a promising noninvasive alternative to open surgery.
