JFR 2018: Must you perform prostate MRI before each biopsy?
October 16, 2018 -- Most experts recommend MRI for patients with a history of systematic negative biopsies and in whom there is still a suspicion of prostate cancer, but the added value remains controversial, Dr. Olivier Rouvière, PhD, told delegates at the Journées Francophones de Radiologie Diagnostique & Interventionnelle (JFR).  Discuss
AI can prescreen head CT studies for urgent findings
October 16, 2018 -- A set of artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms can prescreen head CT scans for urgent findings such as intracranial hemorrhage and cranial fracture, enabling triage of these cases for priority review by radiologists, according to research published online on October 11 in the Lancet.  Discuss
JFR 2018: Spotlight falls on radiomics
October 15, 2018 -- Being both data-driven and a vital element of discovery research, radiomics is poised to be a pivotal process for the development of new diagnostic imaging strategies and therapies, delegates learned at the French national radiology congress (Journées Francophones de Radiologie Diagnostique & Interventionnelle, JFR 2018).  Discuss
Pressures on radiology increase litigation risks
October 15, 2018 -- Unprecedented pressures and the constant struggle to tackle the seemingly endless reporting backlog are contributing to a sustained rise in the number of litigation claims involving radiology, but the number of legal cases remains small, a U.K. study has found.  Discuss
JFR 2018: Teams prepare for battle in AI challenge
October 12, 2018 -- Rivals in the ongoing big data/artificial intelligence (AI) challenge that will take place during the course of Journées Francophones de Radiologie Diagnostique & Interventionnelle (JFR 2018) are eager for the next round of images, scheduled for opening day on 12 October in Paris.  Discuss
PET/CT rivals CT for NSCLC recurrence
October 11, 2018 -- Swiss researchers have found that FDG-PET/CT is "not superior" to contrast-enhanced CT in the detection and evaluation of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) recurrence two years after follow-up curative treatment. Their study was published online on 4 October in the Annals of Thoracic Surgery.  Discuss
Fake views: Generating image data for machine learning
October 10, 2018 -- Like a human locked in a white soundless room struggling to make sense of the outside world, artificial intelligence is impossible to achieve without some sort of input, Dr. Hugh Harvey writes. A functional algorithm must use data, he notes.  Discuss
Italians find DBT + ABVS compares well with MRI
October 10, 2018 -- Italian researchers found that the combination of digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) and ultrasound automated breast volume scanning (ABVS) measured up well against breast MRI for staging breast cancer. The findings were published in the October issue of the European Journal of Radiology.  Discuss
Dutch report success with augmented reality of brain
October 9, 2018 -- Dutch researchers have used augmented reality to help pinpoint brain tumors before surgically removing them. They found the technique was nearly as accurate as standard neuronavigation, and it has helped improve understanding of the anatomy and efficiency during a procedure.  Discuss
Kuhl renews support for abbreviated breast MRI
October 9, 2018 -- Abbreviated breast MRI could be a viable alternative for population-wide screening if combined with dedicated MRI systems optimized for breast imaging and ones that ensure fast patient throughput, according to Dr. Christiane Kuhl.  Discuss
