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).
Hand x-ray art project gets slap on the wrist
June 7, 2013 -- It seems that art and science do not always mix, at least according to the French Nuclear Safety Authority. Triggered by an art exhibit involving roughly 100 hand radiographs, the agency served a reminder to those involved and the general public that x-ray scans for artistic purposes are considered unlawful.
Could chest tomo be a first-line lung cancer screening tool?
June 6, 2013 -- With all the attention being paid to CT lung cancer screening, what about x-ray? Italian researchers believe that radiology's oldest modality could be revived as a screening tool with a technological twist -- digital tomosynthesis. They describe their findings in the June edition of the Journal of Thoracic Oncology.
DRK 2013: Support grows for electroporation and PET/MRI
June 5, 2013 -- Clinical acceptance of two emerging techniques -- irreversible electroporation and PET/MRI -- seems to be rising sharply, judged by upbeat presentations given at the 94th German radiology congress, DRK, which ended in Hamburg on Saturday.
How safe are you? Psychopaths attack radiologists in Belgium
June 5, 2013 -- Earlier this year, two radiologists were physically attacked as they worked in their hospital in Belgium. One of them tells AuntMinnieEurope.com about the frightening ordeal, and talks about the lessons for clinical radiologists who are in ever closer contact with patients.
PET/MRI no direct match for PET/CT in oncology cases
June 4, 2013 -- Adding body-coil image acquisition to PET/MRI does not entirely match the diagnostic accuracy of standard low-dose PET/CT, and may only serve as a backup scanning option in a small selection of oncology patients, according to a Swiss study.
White men, breast MRI come under scrutiny at DRK 2013
June 4, 2013 -- After four days of intensive teaching, networking, updating, and discussions of the latest news, the German radiological congress, the DRK, is over. Die weissen Männer caused a stir, and the breast MRI sessions were particularly strong, writes AuntMinnieEurope.com's editorial adviser Dr. Matthias Dietzel.
7T MRI successfully images the female pelvis
June 3, 2013 -- Imaging the female pelvis is possible using contrast-enhanced 7-tesla T1-weighted MR imaging, German researchers report in European Radiology, but they also demonstrated the image impairment associated with T2-weighted MRI in their study. Their preliminary results show that 7-tesla MRI of the pelvis is a promising but challenging imaging technique.
New recommendations published on imaging and pregnancy
June 3, 2013 -- The U.K. Royal College of Radiologists (RCR) has updated its guidelines on the measures routinely taken in imaging departments to protect unborn children from irradiation. There is evidence the incidence of childhood cancer may rise slightly following in utero irradiation before a period has been missed, says the RCR's Dr. Pete Cavanagh.
New BJR study assesses measurement of CR image quality
May 31, 2013 -- Medical physics experts may now use the image quality metrics described in a British Journal of Radiology study in quality assurance programs and optimization studies with a degree of confidence -- they reflect the clinical image quality in chest computed radiography (CR) images acquired without an antiscatter grid.
Radiologists prefer CAD with fewer clicks
May 30, 2013 -- Radiologists prefer computer-aided detection (CAD) software that gives them necessary information with the fewest clicks possible and is closely integrated with PACS, rather than applications that require multiple manual steps to interrogate data, according to a team of German researchers.
U.K. issues free guidelines on clinical PET/CT
May 29, 2013 -- All imaging specialists who are involved in relevant multidisciplinary teams must develop a good working knowledge of PET/CT, and teamwork is essential to ensure the highest standards, according to guidance published this month by the U.K. Royal College of Radiologists.
New Dutch survey underlines need to improve CT dose levels
May 29, 2013 -- The long-awaited radiation survey from the Netherlands has shown that imaging sites in the country have moderate dose levels in CT compared with other European nations. But it also indicates a wide variability among the 21 hospitals in the study.
Colorectal cancer diagnostic network shows promise
May 28, 2013 -- A regional network that links colorectal diagnostic experts is getting underway in Sweden, and researchers have high hopes it will lead to improved quality of radiological reporting in preoperative imaging of colorectal cancer patients, thus providing more patient-oriented care.
