3D printing compares to MRI for planning ACL repair
May 3, 2018 -- Measuring 3D-printed knees may be just as effective as the standard technique of measuring multiplanar reconstruction knee MRI scans in determining ideal graft length for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, new research from Italy has found.  Discuss
How can cinematic rendering expand its role in medicine?
May 3, 2018 -- Cinematic rendering has been drawing attention for its amazingly lifelike images of complex anatomy. But what will it take to move past the "wow" factor and integrate cinematic rendering into routine clinical use? Experts on the topic shared their insight in a British Institute of Radiology podcast.  Discuss
CAD gains momentum for scoring of lung nodules
May 2, 2018 -- Computer-aided detection (CAD) and risk stratification are useful for excluding lung cancer on thoracic CT, according to Scottish and Dutch researchers. CAD followed by radiology review of suspicious cases is cost-effective and can lead to a 30% reduction in screening costs, they say.  Discuss
