Norway acts to improve workflow and cut dose
June 25, 2014 -- A pioneering 50,000 euro project that began in the scenic west of Norway in April aims to organize imaging protocols so that examinations can be exchanged efficiently between hospital groups. The scheme is seen as a necessary step to optimize workflow and protect patients from excess radiation exposure.
ESGAR: Imaging sheds light on tumor response in liver
June 24, 2014 -- Evaluation of treated hepatic lesions is challenging, so it's vital to adapt the imaging strategy and evaluation criteria according to the treatment used and underlying tumor, noted award-winning French researchers at last week's European Society of Gastrointestinal and Abdominal Radiology (ESGAR) meeting.
100 years on: Marie Curie and the Great War

Norwegians seek to add clarity to breast screening dispute
June 17, 2014 -- An invitation to participate in breast cancer screening reduces cancer death risk by 28%, according to a new study by researchers from Norway and published in BMJ. Mammography screening experts have called the study "thorough," "accurate," and "refreshingly free" of hysteria; an accompanying editorial, however, is not, they said.
Synthesized 2D images dramatically reduce DBT radiation dose
June 17, 2014 -- Breast imagers reading 2D images synthetically reconstructed from digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) data had comparable performance to those reading conventional 2D mammography and DBT scans for breast cancer screening, while exposing women to less radiation dose, according to Norwegian researchers.
Be creative on tech assessment, DRG president urges
June 16, 2014 -- A critical challenge is how to assess the influence of every imaging procedure with accuracy and rigor. Dr. Norbert Hosten, president of the German Radiological Society (DRG), thinks there's a big opportunity to exploit the potential of new scientific participation in fresh and original ways.
