Cochrane group again takes aim at breast screening
January 9, 2017 -- Continuing a campaign going back to at least 2000, researchers from the Nordic Cochrane Centre in Copenhagen take aim at screening mammography in a January 10 article in the Annals of Internal Medicine. The group claims that breast screening doesn't reduce the incidence of advanced tumors, and that one-third of tumors detected actually represent overdiagnosis.
Accelerated MRI can bring benefits in daily routine
January 9, 2017 -- Accelerated MRI techniques are readily available today and offer clear advantages in terms of time, resolution, diagnostic accuracy, and patient compliance, according to researchers from Bern in Switzerland.
5 tips on how to read gynecologic images
January 6, 2017 -- A sound knowledge of clinical details, including tumor markers, is vital when interpreting gynecologic images, because this information enables the radiologist to make an accurate diagnosis, according to award-winning researchers from a top London teaching hospital.
PET/MRI head scans reveal important incidental findings
January 5, 2017 -- Adding a scan of the entire head to a routine whole-body PET/MRI protocol reveals a significant number of incidental findings in the brain in asymptomatic cancer patients, found a study presented at RSNA 2016.
Swiss identify pros and cons of 3D printing
January 4, 2017 -- Three-dimensional printing represents a valuable addition to the radiological report, and along with virtual reality, it will play an increasing role in conveying information to referrers, Swiss experts believe.
Radiologist burnout: Worse than we thought?
January 4, 2017 -- It's no secret that physicians are susceptible to workplace burnout, and radiologists are no exception. The syndrome can be dangerous, affecting the well-being of physicians and also the quality of care provided to patients. But how common is burnout?
Machine learning improves FFR-CT for coronary ischemia
January 3, 2017 -- In results that could potentially shake up the heart imaging status quo, a machine learning algorithm slightly outperformed a more traditional algorithm in analyzing fractional flow reserve CT (FFR-CT) studies for detecting signs of ischemic coronary lesions, according to a presentation at the recent RSNA 2016 meeting in Chicago.
Deep learning helps spot CT exams with critical findings
January 2, 2017 -- Deep-learning technology can be a useful tool for identifying cases that contain critical imaging findings, potentially expediting the interpretation of these exams and the communication of results, according to a presentation at the recent RSNA 2016 meeting in Chicago.
Xenon flash lamp enables photoacoustic CT
December 30, 2016 -- Photoacoustic CT can provide noninvasive real-time imaging of significant anatomical and physiological information. The strong acoustic waves generated by the pulsed laser used for illumination deliver high image resolution and sensitive detection.
