Novel PET agent could sniff out neurological disease
January 24, 2017 -- Backed by previous research suggesting that losing one's sense of smell can be a sign of neurodegeneration, researchers are developing a novel PET imaging agent that targets olfactory neurons to assess the extent of disease, according to a study published online January 23 in the Journal of Clinical Investigation.
PET/CT CAD finds common spinal metastases
January 23, 2017 -- A new multipurpose computer-aided detection (CAD) algorithm was able to detect and characterize different kinds of spinal metastases in PET/CT images automatically and accurately, say researchers from two U.S. institutions. The fully automated system could help doctors diagnose and manage patients with the most common musculoskeletal metastases.
MRI can help avoid unnecessary prostate cancer biopsies

Algorithm distills findings in radiology reports
January 20, 2017 -- With help from machine learning, a natural language processing algorithm can automatically extract and characterize findings in radiology reports, potentially helping clinicians to better understand and quickly ascertain important results, according to research published online in the Journal of Digital Imaging.
Brain atlas advances MRI exploration
January 20, 2017 -- Researchers have developed a high-resolution, interactive anatomic brain-mapping atlas they say can overcome the limitations of functional MRI and expand the modality's value to conventional MR brain imaging and standard MRI applications.
6 tips for working with millennials in radiology
January 19, 2017 -- The millennial generation -- those born between 1980 and 2000 -- is the largest generation since the baby boomers and likely the most educated in history.
