Dear Women's Imaging Insider,
It's sometimes said among breast imaging specialists that contrast-enhanced mammography is a tricky examination to perform and interpret. Much can go wrong, and there are many pitfalls, they say.
It's no great surprise, therefore, that a clear and informative e-poster on this topic by an experienced group in Madrid has won critical acclaim. We've posted an article about this important work today.
Women's imaging was covered extensively at last week's onsite Arab Health meeting, and Prof. Dr. Michael Fuchsjäger's talk on breast cancer therapy captured the attention of many delegates. To read about his words of wisdom, go to our news report.
Artificial intelligence (AI) can help radiologists lessen their workload when reading digital breast tomosynthesis images by nearly 40%, according to research published recently. Because 99.5% of screening examinations are cancer-free, deploying a well-designed AI system to optimize screening reads could be of substantial value, the authors noted.
Virtual meetings and webinars have become the norm in women's imaging since the start of the pandemic, but what impact do they have on how we use social media? German researchers have been investigating the use of Twitter during remote events, and they've come up with some interesting analysis.
MRI can be extremely useful for the primary assessment of the female urethra for both benign and malignant pathology, and it is able to characterize incidentally depicted urethral lesions, genitourinary radiologists have reported. Researchers from the University of Cambridge in the U.K. and Cluj-Napoca in Romania have shared their clinical experiences.
