Swiss make clinical use of cinematic rendering
The highly detailed, photorealistic appearance of cinematic rendering reconstructions makes it ideal for teaching, according to a team of researchers from Zurich. They have used cinematic rendering to create images of head CT and conebeam CT scans, and have integrated them into the evaluation of maxillofacial anatomy and pathology.
MRI reveals molecular composition of the brain
Researchers from Israel have developed a model that compares the water content of the brain with measures of physical properties obtained from MRI scans to calculate the molecular composition of lipids in the brain. The technique may help detect changes in the biological makeup of the brain over time and identify key changes associated with diseases like Alzheimer's.
Radiology business intelligence takes root in Europe
Which factors are influencing the adoption of new business intelligence tools that aim to provide more focused analytics to help improve performance and profitability? Industry expert Ulrik Kristensen, PhD, addresses this key question in the next phase of digitalizing medical imaging.
Is DBT cheaper than digital mammography?
Scandinavian researchers have conducted a large cost-effectiveness study comparing digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) with digital mammography. They published their findings online on 9 August in the European Journal of Health Economics.
Norwegians shine new light on DBT's vast potential
Researchers from Oslo have provided fresh evidence that adding digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) to digital mammography in screening yields more cancers in most breast density and patient age groups. They unveiled their results on 13 August in Radiology.
Maverinck responds to Karolinska radiology chief's rebuttal
The people to blame for the controversial construction of the New Karolinska have gone into hiding and rely on smoke-screen tactics, while those now trying to run the dysfunctional hospital are faced with operational problems beyond belief and major financial restrictions, writes the Maverinck.
Diffusion-weighted imaging of breast begins to come of age
Diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) of the breast offers enormous future potential as an imaging biomarker, but multicenter trials are essential to validate single-center studies and establish DWI as a useful clinical decision-making tool, according to Dr. Julia Camps-Herrero, president of the European Society of Breast Imaging.
Neurosurgery gets boost from 3D-printed head model
An Australian team has devised a 3D-printed head model that enables the realistic simulation of neurosurgical procedures. The technique is based on a combination of MRI and CT angiography scans, and it is described in an online report posted on 1 August by 3D Printing in Medicine.
Italians find mammography can show cardiovascular disease
Italian researchers have found that mammography can be a useful way to test for cardiovascular disease at the same time as screening for breast cancer because it identifies breast arterial calcifications, which have been linked to cardiovascular disease risk. They published their results online on 11 August in the European Journal of Radiology.
Radiology chief at Karolinska issues rebuttal to Maverinck
The managing director for imaging and physiology at Karolinska University Hospital, Dr. Juhana Hakumäki, PhD, responds to last week's Maverinck column about the controversy swirling around recent construction at the world-famous hospital in Stockholm.
