AI's akin to x-ray in revolutionary potential, Italians say
November 8, 2018 -- Artificial intelligence (AI) will change radiology practice more than anything since Wilhelm Röntgen's discovery of x-ray, according to researchers from Italy. In new analysis published on 24 October, they assert that radiologists can play a leading role in this upcoming period of rapid change.  Discuss
Severe shortage of cardiac CT scanners blights U.K.
November 7, 2018 -- U.K. hospitals lack the capacity to provide people experiencing chest pain with urgently needed coronary CT angiography, according to senior radiologist Dr. Giles Roditi. New figures show that more than 56,000 patients with angina missed out on scans in 2017 due to shortages of equipment and staff.  Discuss
Prokop: AI will enable you to focus on what matters
November 7, 2018 -- Many aspects of imaging are dull and should be automated, Dr. Mathias Prokop said at the annual European Society of Medical Imaging Informatics meeting on 3 November. Artificial intelligence (AI) will create the space and time for radiologists to concentrate on what really matters.  Discuss

Second-look breast ultrasound spots occult lesions
November 5, 2018 -- Second-look breast ultrasound with volume navigation effectively detects occult additional lesions initially spotted via breast MRI, Italian researchers have found. In addition, the technique permits safe biopsies irrespective of position and depth.  Discuss
Dutch use heart valve tracking to boost viability of 4D MRI
November 5, 2018 -- An automated heart valve-tracking algorithm halved the amount of time and variability involved in blood-flow quantification with 4D MRI, Dutch researchers stated in an article published online on 30 October. The improved efficiency may help convince clinicians that cardiac 4D MRI is useful for assessing valvular heart disease.  Discuss
What exactly do medical physicists do?
November 2, 2018 -- Medical physicists have many career options around the world, from clinical roles and jobs in industry and academia to computational simulations and testing new scanners, but it's still not a well-known field. They can even be mistaken for a physiotherapist. So what exactly do they do?  Discuss
