Density mapping predicts interval breast cancers December 24, 2015 -- Dutch researchers are using a breast density mapping software package to predict which density patterns are associated with higher rates of tumors found between mammography screenings. The results may help make supplemental breast cancer screening exams more effective for select patients.
Radiology prepares for leading role at Arab Health 2016 December 21, 2015 -- As medical imaging continues to thrive throughout large parts of the Middle East, the radiological community is gearing up for Arab Health 2016, at which intervention, radiation protection, and pediatrics look set to dominate the agenda. European speakers also will play a critical part.
3D PET images show oxygen/CO2 transport in lungs December 21, 2015 -- A 3D algorithm can utilize PET/CT images to map the movement of oxygen and CO2 in the lungs, potentially facilitating better treatment for patients with serious lung diseases, according to a recent article published online in Respiratory Physiology & Neurobiology.
PET features help guide dose escalation December 18, 2015 -- Quantitative imaging features (QIFs) from FDG-PET combined with conventional prognostic factors of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) show potential to enhance overall survival risk stratification. That's the conclusion of study findings published in the Red Journal and Radiology.
Automated CAC fares well in CT lung screening scans December 10, 2015 -- Automated coronary artery calcium (CAC) scoring is robust and accurate when applied to lung cancer screening exams -- even when applied to a different population than the algorithm was designed for, according to results presented at RSNA 2015 in Chicago.
Riverain nets CE Mark for CAD software November 20, 2015 -- Computer-aided detection (CAD) firm Riverain Technologies has received the CE Mark for marketing its ClearRead CT software in the European Union.
Mirada wins contract for 30 U.K. centers November 10, 2015 -- Medical imaging software developer Mirada Medical announced its XD3 Advanced image review and analysis software is being used by Alliance Medical in partnership with 30 National Health Service (NHS) hospital PET/CT departments nationwide.
CT technique can reduce invasive heart tests October 26, 2015 -- In what is thought to be the largest trial of its kind to date, U.S. and Italian researchers have found that an algorithm measuring blood flow through the coronary arteries based on data from CT images can prevent unnecessary catheterizations.
