Swiss use computer algorithm to estimate CT fetal dose
September 26, 2017 -- Researchers from Switzerland have developed computer models to estimate the radiation dose to fetuses of pregnant women undergoing CT. The ramifications include better decision-making for doctors and patients, according to the study team.  Discuss
The search for a dedicated cardiac CT scanner
September 26, 2017 -- The increasing volume of coronary CT angiography examinations suggests a clinical need for a dedicated cardiac CT scanner. A global team of engineers is leading an initiative to define and evaluate hypothetical solutions to meet this need.  Discuss

MRI correlates brain changes to cognitive decline
September 22, 2017 -- Researchers from multiple groups in the U.K., headed up at St George's University of London, have developed a single score MR imaging methodology for correlating cerebral small vessel disease damage to cognitive decline.  Discuss
Why all the hype over 3D printing? Plus how to do it
September 21, 2017 -- As specialists in the viewing, manipulation, and interpretation of 3D medical datasets, radiologists are in the ideal position to exploit the full potential of 3D printing, but their lack of knowledge of the process could hold them back, according to researchers from a top London hospital.  Discuss
fMRI cheese study wins Ig Nobel Prize
September 21, 2017 -- It isn't every day that cheese is the focal point of a functional MRI (fMRI) study, but a foray by French researchers into an area of research that is seldom -- if ever -- explored earned them an Ig Nobel Prize.  Discuss
Strickland spells out legal implications of missed cancer
September 20, 2017 -- Honesty generates trust in patient-doctor relations, but when mistakes are made, radiologists must distinguish between the legal requirement for duty of candour and the preference for openness, according to U.K. Royal College of Radiologists President Dr. Nicola Strickland.  Discuss
Study: Synthetic 2D compares well with mammography
September 20, 2017 -- Synthetic 2D images derived from digital breast tomosynthesis are comparable with full-field digital mammography (FFDM), according to Spanish researchers. Furthermore, synthetic images could replace FFDM in studies that use both modalities and reduce radiation dose by 45%, they said.  Discuss
Champagne and PET/MRI: Why they're so similar
September 19, 2017 -- PET/MRI and champagne have a lot in common. On the face of it, both are expensive and even exclusive, befitting the "rich and famous." Read more about the similarities between PET/MRI and champagne in a guest editorial by Thomas Beyer, PhD, and Dr. Vicky Goh.  Discuss
French study heralds change in lung cancer follow-up
September 18, 2017 -- French researchers have shed new light on following up patients with resected non-small cell lung cancer. They found little evidence to support more frequent CT scanning in the first two years after resection, according to a study presented on 9 September at the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO 2017) congress in Madrid.  Discuss
