DBT not only finds more cancers, but more invasive ones
June 18, 2014 -- In community practice, digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) performed better than conventional 2D mammography, reducing recall rates, increasing overall cancer detection, and increasing the detection of invasive cancer, according to research published online June 11 in the American Journal of Roentgenology.
Breast tomosynthesis adoption uneven across the U.S.
June 17, 2014 -- When used with digital mammography, digital breast tomosynthesis has been shown to improve the diagnostic accuracy of breast cancer screening and diagnosis. But exactly how and where is it being used in the U.S.? Researchers investigated this question and presented their findings in the June issue of the Journal of the American College of Radiology.
MRI technique and iron level could help diagnose ADHD
June 17, 2014 -- Using an MRI technique called magnetic field correlation, researchers can measure brain iron levels in adolescents, which could help diagnose attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and lead to more effective treatment. Study results were published online June 17 in Radiology.
Big data, rapid-learning tools will unlock personalized care
June 16, 2014 -- Big data and the software being developed to mine and learn from the vast amounts of data in clinical archives will pave the way for personalized cancer treatment, according to a presentation at the International Symposium on Multidetector-Row CT in San Francisco. And image data will be crucial.
New core exam: From 'board frenzy' to 'future neglect'?
June 16, 2014 -- The American Board of Radiology (ABR) and the Association of Program Directors in Radiology (APDR) got it wrong when they revamped the accreditation process and dumped the oral boards in favor of a third-year core exam, according to an opinion piece in the Journal of the American College of Radiology.
MedPAC leaves radiology alone in June report to Congress
June 13, 2014 -- In perhaps a case of "no news is good news," the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission's (MedPAC) June 2014 report to Congress raises questions about how to revise Medicare payment policies, but it does not contain any new recommendations for imaging.
Synthesized 2D images dramatically reduce DBT radiation dose
June 13, 2014 -- Breast imagers reading 2D images synthetically reconstructed from digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) data had comparable performance to those reading conventional 2D mammography and DBT scans for breast cancer screening, while exposing women to less radiation dose, according to a study published in the June issue of Radiology.
The universal content viewer defined
June 13, 2014 -- Is your healthcare facility considering the implementation of a universal viewer? If so, you may have a few questions about how universal viewers work and their relationship to vendor-neutral archives. In this article, Imad Nijim of Perceptive Software offers his perspective.
Quantitative US gauges cellular tumor treatment response
June 13, 2014 -- Canadian researchers have succeeded in measuring chemotherapy treatment response in mice at the microscopic level using quantitative ultrasound combined with maximum mean discrepancy measurements, according to a new study in IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging.
MDCT: CT perfusion opens new windows in pancreatic disease
June 12, 2014 -- SAN FRANCISCO - Pancreatic imaging with CT perfusion (CTP) offers new ways to view the pancreas, unveiling dangerous tumors that are difficult to see with conventional CT and potentially offering more patients the chance for a cure, according to a talk at the International Symposium on Multidetector-Row CT (MDCT).
Cancer: Screening mammo cuts incidence of late-stage cancer
June 12, 2014 -- Over the past 30 years, screening mammography has not only identified more early-stage breast cancer, it decreased the incidence of late-stage disease by more than a third, according to a study published online in the journal Cancer.
MDCT: Kalender offers update on breast CT
June 12, 2014 -- Clinical trials for a high-resolution breast CT scanner will begin in Germany in early 2015, according to a talk by Willi Kalender, PhD, at the International Symposium on Multidetector-Row CT (MDCT). The hope is that the technology will outperform full-field digital mammography and breast tomosynthesis at equivalent dose levels.
MDCT: Setting up a lung cancer screening program
June 11, 2014 -- SAN FRANCISCO - If your institution doesn't have a lung cancer screening program, it's probably time to set one up, according to a presentation on Tuesday at the annual International Symposium on Multidetector-Row CT (MDCT).
