CT analysis algorithm defines malignant lung nodules July 14, 2015 -- A multitasking algorithm designed to analyze CT lung cancer screening images and pick out likely malignancies, nodule volumes, as well as other characteristics at CT, delivers significant, if modest, performance improvements over that based on size alone.
Texture analysis sorts out breast cancer types July 13, 2015 -- Texture analysis of MRI breast images can reveal multiple lesion subtypes, potentially enabling different assessment and management strategies depending on lesion type, according to new Scottish-led research published in European Radiology.
Ultrasound-based CAD pinpoints thyroid nodules July 10, 2015 -- Ultrasound combined with a novel computer-aided detection (CAD) scheme can help determine whether thyroid nodules are malignant or benign, a new study has found. The research team thinks it's feasible to identify malignant lesions, based primarily on the presence and patterns of thyroid nodule calcifications.
Group creates 3D printed heart with CT, echo data June 29, 2015 -- Researchers from the U.S. have created a 3D model of a human heart using data from two cardiac imaging techniques: CT and echocardiography. The study was presented at last week's Catheter Interventions in Congenital, Structural, and Valvular Heart Disease meeting in Frankfurt, Germany.
