May 15, 2013 -- Dr. Mathias Langer will be presiding over the German Radiological Society's annual meeting, the DRK, in Hamburg at the end of this month. In this interview, he sets out details of what visitors to the congress can expect, and explains the many special features awaiting delegates.
Finland acts to protect children from excess radiation dose
May 14, 2013 -- Image Gently, the international campaign to protect children from unnecessary radiation dose exposure, is practiced avidly in Finland. A network of PACS throughout the country helps make this possible, according to a recent article in the American Journal of Roentgenology.
Distinguishing between teleradiologists and clinical radiologists
May 14, 2013 -- Multidisciplinary team meetings still have a vital role to play in radiology today, even though the profession is changing fast, writes Dr. Neelam Dugar. Also, patients are in the driving seat for demanding quality and can have a significant impact on the care they receive.
Adolescent woes: MRI illuminates ACL tears
May 13, 2013 -- Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears are not isolated events, but only the most obvious sign of a complex knee injury involving multiple structures. Awareness of the broad spectrum of MRI appearances at common sites of associated injury is vital, according to a multinational group of musculoskeletal experts.
Study shows feasibility of cardiac PET/MRI -- with caveats
May 13, 2013 -- Cardiac FDG-PET/MRI is feasible on an integrated whole-body PET/MRI system, but the hybrid modality still must prove it adds clinical relevance to cases of ischemic heart disease, according to a German study published online on 7 May in Radiology.
Pink ribbons fail to inform Austrian women about breast cancer
May 10, 2013 -- Despite high-profile breast cancer awareness campaigns -- such as the use of pink ribbons -- the majority of Austrian women ages 45 to 69 were unaware of key aspects of screening, such as the existence of potential harms from the exams, an Austrian researcher has found.
Radiotherapy not needed for older low-risk breast cancer patients
May 9, 2013 -- Women older than age 55 who are diagnosed with low-risk, localized early-stage breast cancer may be able to forego radiotherapy following breast conservation surgery, according to an Italian study presented at the recent American Society of Breast Surgeons' annual meeting in Chicago.
Europe's new ethics code may lack teeth
May 8, 2013 -- The European Society of Radiology has issued its eagerly anticipated code of ethics, but concerns have emerged about the possible lack of available disciplinary measures necessary to enforce it.
ESTRO: Proton CT has potential to improve patient care
May 7, 2013 -- Evidence is growing that proton CT can enable more accurate treatment planning and range verification for proton therapy. Its emergence as a way to improve the precision of proton therapy was discussed at a recent forum of the European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO) held in Geneva.
Curved MIPs aid detection of thin intracranial hematomas
May 7, 2013 -- An advanced visualization technique utilizing curved maximum intensity projections (MIPs) that parallel the inner table of the skull may be able to significantly improve sensitivity for detecting thin epidural and subdural hematomas, according to an Austrian article published in Radiology.
ECG could replace SPECT MPI for some cardiac patients
May 6, 2013 -- Electrocardiogram (ECG) stress testing alone could be used in place of SPECT myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) in patients who can exercise at a high capacity, said researchers of a study presented 5 May at the International Conference on Nuclear Cardiology and Cardiac CT in Berlin.
How to merge the best in hybrid imaging
May 6, 2013 -- Datasets in optical and nuclear imaging are being fused with those from other modalities to provide better anatomical information. And in addition to merging PET or SPECT with MRI or CT, the combination of fluorescence molecular tomography with CT or MRI is showing particular promise, a leading German expert said.
