Single-view DBT + DM protocol boosts mammography sensitivity
September 10, 2014 -- A breast screening protocol that combines single-view digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) with single-view 2D digital mammography (DM) had higher sensitivity for detecting breast cancer than two-view 2D digital mammography, with just a slight increase in radiation dose, according to a new study in European Radiology.
Challenges don't deter opening of ICR 2014 in Dubai

Germans look into the future of abdominal imaging
September 4, 2014 -- Wouldn't it be great to know what lies ahead in gastrointestinal/abdominal imaging? Dr. Andreas G. Schreyer, head of the Working Group for Gastrointestinal/Abdominal Diagnostics of the German Radiological Society, aims to do just that by launching an online survey focusing on CT and MRI protocols.
ESC: Imaging of ischemia divides opinion
September 3, 2014 -- Is cardiovascular MR better than SPECT for imaging of ischemia? That was the burning question in a debate at this week's annual meeting of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) in Barcelona, Spain, but the answer still eludes experts, it seems.
