German trial to test synthesized 2D DBT images
May 18, 2018 -- German researchers are starting a clinical trial to test digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) plus synthesized 2D mammography images versus standard full-field digital mammography for breast screening, according to a 14 May BMJ Open article.  Discuss
Elastography highlights malignant breast lesions
May 18, 2018 -- Shear-wave elastography differentiates malignant from benign breast lesions with high accuracy and a very high negative predictive value, according to Israeli researchers. In addition, the technique is not affected by the immediate density of the tissues surrounding the lesion or the depth of the lesion.  Discuss
RöKo 2018: Neural network looks deep into the lungs
May 17, 2018 -- Today's radiologists can use elaborate, computer-supported analysis methods to learn far more from CT data. A study presented at the German Radiology Congress (Deutscher Röntgenkongress, RöKo 2018) showed that CT datasets can provide a fairly precise assessment of lung function.  Discuss
Global study sheds light on MRI availability, use, and price
May 17, 2018 -- New analysis posted on 8 May by the Kaiser Family Foundation has revealed fresh data about the worldwide availability, use, and price of MRI. The information was published as part of a forum held by the foundation and the Peterson Center on Healthcare in Washington, DC, U.S.  Discuss
Building ethical AI: Why we must demand it
May 16, 2018 -- A dark, dystopian future where artificial intelligence (AI) brutally and coldly runs the world and humans serve merely as a biological tool is a real possibility, writes Dr. Hugh Harvey, but how can we avoid this grim prospect? He addresses the question in his new column.  Discuss
Demand soars for coordinated hybrid imaging training
May 15, 2018 -- Aspiring radiologists and nuclear medicine clinicians are seeking more training opportunities in hybrid imaging, which could lead to certification in the field, according to the results of a largely European survey published online on 26 April in Cancer Research.  Discuss
Fluciclovine-PET, MRI better together for prostate cancer
May 14, 2018 -- Combining fluciclovine-PET and multiparametric MRI potentially can better detect and classify high-risk prostate cancer than the two modalities alone, according to a Norwegian study published in the May issue of the Journal of Nuclear Medicine.  Discuss
Advanced visualization and the cloud that never formed
May 14, 2018 -- Recent hype about cloud technology has yet to materialize in clinical and diagnostic healthcare IT, especially when it comes to advanced visualization (AV). Why haven't more healthcare providers moved their AV solutions to the cloud? Ulrik Kristensen, PhD, from Signify Research examines this question.  Discuss
RöKo: Molecular imaging can transform dementia care
May 11, 2018 -- Imaging of dementia has come under close scrutiny at the German Radiology Congress (Deutscher Röntgenkongress, RöKo 2018) in Leipzig. In this interview, Dr. Henryk Barthel from Leipzig outlines how PET/MRI can contribute to better patient management.  Discuss
DBT + synthesized 2D mammography hikes cancer detection
May 11, 2018 -- Using digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) with synthesized 2D mammography increases cancer detection and reduces recall rates when compared with standard digital mammography alone, based on interim clinical trial results from Italy.  Discuss
