CHICAGO - Could a one-scan CT lung screening and cardiac risk assessment be feasible? Perhaps, say researchers from South Korea who performed low-dose thoracic multidetector-row CT (MDCT) in a group of smokers and ran calcium tests on the data. They shared their results in a presentation Sunday at the RSNA 2007 meeting.  
CHICAGO - Computer-aided detection (CAD) technology offers promise for improving radiologists' performance in assessing the likelihood of lung nodule malignancy, according to researchers from the University of Michigan Medical School in Ann Arbor. The team presented its findings Sunday at this week's RSNA 2007 meeting.  
CHICAGO - Using data from the American College of Radiology Imaging Network (ACRIN) 6667 study, researchers from Pennsylvania have found that the frequency of malignancy in probably benign lesions seen on MRI in high-risk patients is comparable to that of mammography. They presented their work to attendees at the 2007 RSNA meeting on Sunday.  
CHIGAGO - Patients with implanted pacemakers or defibrillators no longer need to be routinely denied much-needed MR scans, according to a presentation Sunday at the 2007 RSNA meeting. Researchers from Italy found that 1.5-tesla MR was safe in their patients with the new generation of cardiac devices.
