U.K. team scoops top prize for chest wall deformities study
July 24, 2014 -- Developing a keen awareness of the radiological features of congenital chest wall deformities is a useful clinical skill, and imaging can also illustrate pre- and postsurgical appearances for more conditions requiring surgical correction, according to award-winning research from a top facility in London.
Scots get set for Usain Bolt, Mo Farah, et al
July 23, 2014 -- The Commonwealth Games begin today and is the largest sporting event ever held in Scotland. Musculoskeletal radiologist Dr. David Ritchie and his team of volunteers are prepared for everything and have already been keeping busy in the state-of-the-art polyclinic in Glasgow.
How congress revenue funds ESR member services
July 23, 2014 -- Complaints about the ECR's registration fees are not hard to come by, but it's crucial to remember the European Society of Radiology (ESR) uses congress revenues to pay for other services for its 60,000-plus members. This article explains the rationale behind the approach.
New-generation dual-source CT heart scans prove fast and sharp
July 22, 2014 -- Operating the new third-generation dual-source CT scanner 24/7 has revealed a rapid system with robust imaging capabilities and an array of new features to perform heart scans at low doses, according to researchers from a leading German facility.
'Tiered' CT approach shows promise in coronary disease
July 22, 2014 -- In patients with stable angina and suspected coronary disease, a "tiered" approach to CT imaging finds -- so far at least -- that calcium scoring is all many patients need. That's right, for most patients there's simply no need to start with the big imaging guns, researchers in Rotterdam report.
4D peripheral CT often beats dynamic MRI
July 21, 2014 -- Pinpointing flow problems in the peripheral arteries is a task that is typically handed over to dynamic MR angiography. But often, bone-subtracted 4D CT angiography can do a better job, according to German researchers.
MRI links antipsychotic drugs to brain loss
July 21, 2014 -- MR images of patients with schizophrenia have confirmed that antipsychotic drugs can lead to a decrease in brain volume, but the drugs do not appear to cause adverse cognitive issues. The study also found that the rate of brain loss was greater when the dose of medication was higher.
Market matters: Health information exchange
July 18, 2014 -- Barriers continue to exist across Europe for healthcare IT adoption, but there are tangible benefits for radiologists and patients alike on the horizon. Based on a new study, analyst Stephen Holloway discusses how large-scale IT infrastructure is shaping the future of medical imaging.
Dutch use shimming to enhance value of MRI-linac unit
July 17, 2014 -- Only a handful of groups are developing hybrid MRI-linac systems for cancer treatment, but interest in this area looks set to grow after researchers from the Netherlands showed that shimming allows a system to acquire images with good geometric fidelity for all static gantry positions.
French MRI waiting times are 'worst in a decade'
July 16, 2014 -- The shortage of MRI equipment in France is becoming increasingly alarming, and many patients have to wait almost 40 days to undergo an examination, the longest delay in the past 10 years, according to new data. This report highlights a disaster, said a respected senior radiologist from Paris.
