AI shows promise in 3D cardiac MRI evaluation
A European research team has trained and tested an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm using 3D whole-heart cardiac MRI examinations from over 400 randomly selected patients referred for general clinical cardiac MRI.
What are the hot topics in abdominal imaging?
Abdominal sessions at ECR 2020 in July are set to feature many highlights, including new advances in pancreatic imaging, the use of imaging to predict therapeutic success, and how best to optimize and shorten imaging protocols, according to Prof. Dr. Thomas Lauenstein from Düsseldorf, Germany.
MRI reveals brain changes in radiographer with COVID-19
MRI scans of a 25-year-old Italian radiographer who contracted COVID-19 and lost her sense of smell suggest the virus may invade the brain through the olfactory pathway and cause dysfunction of sensorineural origin. This finding was published online by JAMA Neurology on 29 May.
How can FDG-PET/CT be best used for breast cancer?
FDG-PET/CT can be an effective tool when it comes to breast cancer staging and treatment evaluation, but it still shouldn't be used for diagnosis, a Spanish expert told attendees at a webinar held on 28 May by the European Society for Hybrid, Molecular, and Translational Imaging (ESHIMT).
MRI's growth contributes to rising gadolinium levels in rivers
Novel research from Japan has found that the growing demand for MRI scans and an aging population requiring more contrast-enhanced exams have caused worrying increases in the volume of gadolinium found in rivers over the last two decades.
RSNA 2020 won't take place in Chicago
The RSNA has followed the trend set by the ECR and decided its annual congress scheduled to begin in Chicago on 29 November will instead be a virtual event. Concerns about the safety of attendees during the COVID-19 pandemic prompted the change.
U.K. study gives new data on long-term risks of DCIS
Women diagnosed with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) during screening are at higher risk of developing breast cancer and of death from breast cancer, according to research involving over 35,000 women published on 27 May by the BMJ. One expert has called the study "revolutionary."
Europe achieves growing consensus on prostate MRI
A group of expert radiologists and urologists have released new recommendations on quality issues in prostate MRI, covering acquisition, reporting, training and education, and experience prerequisites. The consensus paper has the support of the European Society of Urogenital Radiology and European Association of Urology.
Swiss use machine learning to predict coma outcome
Researchers have found that a machine-learning algorithm based on resting-state functional MRI data can help determine if a patient in a coma after cardiac arrest will regain consciousness. They published their findings on 21 May in the American Journal of Neuroradiology.
Life in the time of COVID-19
For imaging, the crisis is only just beginning, as we try to restore services and attempt to get back to some form of normality, writes Dr. Giles Maskell. The challenge is to hold on to the best of what has been introduced in haste and not simply to drift back to yesterday.
