CHICAGO - Although turf in-roads have been made on many high-end imaging procedures traditionally performed by radiologists, MR imaging is still the purview of the specialty, according to data presented this week at the 2005 RSNA meeting.  
CHICAGO - If you're looking for microvessel obstruction in patients with acute myocardial infarction, it's worth the rush to perform cardiac MRI within 48 hours after the event -- and within two minutes of injecting the contrast. You could potentially help your patients live longer.  
CHICAGO - Customized training of a probabilistic system used in mammography decision support yields no significant difference in the system's diagnostic performance, according to research presented Thursday at the 2005 RSNA meeting.  
CHICAGO - In the RSNA's interventional lung session on Wednesday, Dr. Demetris Patsios from the Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto, Canada, presented a study on the efficacy of MDCT-guided fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) of subcentimeter nodules, concluding that FNAB is a useful tool, if less accurate than FNAB of larger lesions.  
CHICAGO - A new study using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) shows why many of us get a boost from caffeine. The results were presented Wednesday at the 2005 RSNA conference.  
CHICAGO - Investigators from Germany sought to determine if MRI could supplant x-ray in accurately diagnosing epiphyseal injuries due to fracture. They reported their results in a presentation at the 2005 RSNA meeting on Wednesday.  
CHICAGO - Contrast-enhanced hepatic ultrasound could help grade the severity of liver disease, according to research presented Wednesday at the 2005 RSNA meeting.  
CHICAGO - Based on diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) brain scans, adolescents who are genetically at risk for schizophrenia may increase that risk with heavy use of marijuana, researchers reported in a presentation Wednesday at the 2005 RSNA conference.
