AI-assisted FDG-PET/CT advances lung nodule detection
December 16, 2019 -- Swiss researchers have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm that could become a valuable tool for detecting small, FDG-avid pulmonary nodules on oncologic PET/CT scans, according to a study published online on 10 December in European Radiology.  Discuss
Novel therapy brings hope in cases of neuroendocrine tumors
December 16, 2019 -- Award-winning researchers from a top London facility have demonstrated how lutetium-177 peptide receptor radionuclide therapy is showing significant promise in the treatment of patients with inoperable or metastasized neuroendocrine tumors.  Discuss
German team shows value of FDG-PET/MRI in breast cancer
December 13, 2019 -- A new study from Düsseldorf, Germany, has found that FDG-PET/MRI shows promise for accurate staging of breast cancer, but the modality still isn't as accurate as sentinel lymph node biopsy. The researchers presented their results at RSNA 2019.  Discuss
3D printing assists ultrasound-guided liver resection
December 13, 2019 -- The enhanced visualization of patient-specific liver anatomy provided by 3D-printed models based on CT scans led a team of surgeons and radiologists to alter their approach for around 25% of ultrasound-guided liver resections. European Radiology has posted their findings online.  Discuss
AI can speed up whole-body diffusion-weighted MRI
December 12, 2019 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm was able to produce high-quality whole-body diffusion-weighted MRI (WBDWI) in a fraction of the time traditionally needed to perform these exams, potentially enabling wider use of clinical WBDWI, U.K. researchers reported at RSNA 2019.  Discuss
10 golden rules when sharing patient info by email
December 12, 2019 -- Electronic systems make it quick and easy to transfer patient data and images, but it's vital to ensure sensitive information remains secure. In a new report about patient confidentiality, the U.K. Royal College of Radiologists gives 10 simple email rules to follow.  Discuss
Is it transphobic for a patient to request a female-born medic?
December 11, 2019 -- A woman who asked for her U.K. National Health Service breast screening examination to be carried out by a female-born radiographer was referred to as a transphobe by a hospital group, according to a report published on 8 December by the Sunday Times.  Discuss
Sosna: Love your profession, be more visible in era of AI
December 11, 2019 -- Imaging specialists need to love their profession more and promote visibility and understanding of radiology's role so the importance of the discipline is appreciated fully by medical colleagues and patients in the era of artificial intelligence (AI). That's the view of Prof. Jacob Sosna, president of the Israel Radiological Association.  Discuss
Lifting the lid on dementia: MRI's role advances
December 10, 2019 -- The evolution of atrophy rating scales and structured reporting is contributing to MRI's rapidly developing role in a dementia clinical setting, but training and education and implementation challenges remain, according to award-winning Spanish research presented at RSNA 2019 in Chicago.  Discuss
Cardiac patients gain from 3D printing, AR advances
December 9, 2019 -- Determining the distinct benefits of 3D printing and augmented reality (AR) in the management of cardiac conditions, and mapping out which clinical scenarios the technologies are most suitable for, is no easy task. Speakers addressed these questions in a special RSNA session.  Discuss
