VC CAD application does well alone and as reader aid
February 15, 2010 -- A new investigational computer-aided detection (CAD) application significantly improves the accuracy of virtual colonoscopy interpretation, both as standalone software without a radiologist and in a real-world, multireader environment.
Image breech babies twice for hip dysplasia, study suggests
February 15, 2010 -- A new study published in this month's issue of Journal of Children's Orthopaedics indicates that breech babies at risk of hip dysplasia might benefit from an extra imaging exam beyond what's recommended by current clinical guidelines.
Case report: Imaging tracks course of H1N1 in girl
February 12, 2010 -- Texas researchers have published a case report demonstrating how medical imaging exams offer insight into the physiological changes wrought by the H1N1 virus in a 12-year-old girl who died of the disease.
MSK applications could give CAD a shot in the arm
February 12, 2010 -- Computer-aided detection (CAD) technology in radiology has largely focused on cancer applications in the breast, chest, and colon. But with the pace of innovation slowing in those fields, the development of new musculoskeletal CAD applications could help revitalize the technology.
New CT scans of Pa-Ib mummy unveil more secrets
February 11, 2010 -- It's said that "Dead men tell no tales," but a 4,000-year-old female mummy that was recently re-examined with a 64-slice CT scanner revealed many of her secrets to paleoimaging experts. Connecticut researchers used CT to learn important details about her life in ancient Egypt.
Contrast MRI helps guide stem cell therapy for myeloma
February 11, 2010 -- Researchers from France have found that whole-body dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI can help assess treatment response in patients receiving stem cell therapy for multiple myeloma by providing quantitative analysis of bone marrow and focal lesion enhancement.
Pediatric cancer risk from thallium imaging defined
February 11, 2010 -- Researchers from a Tennessee children's hospital have found that thallium-based bone nuclear imaging studies can raise the risk of cancer incidence in pediatric patients, according to an article in the January issue of the American Journal of Roentgenology.
One-stop cardiac assessment evolves with dual-source CT
February 10, 2010 -- U.S. researchers have used dual-source CT to pull off what only recently would have been impossible: dynamic evaluation of the time-resolved passage of contrast through the myocardium, according to a study published this week in the Journal of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography.
Virtual dual-energy DR improves lung lesion detection
February 10, 2010 -- Dual-energy imaging is a promising technique for improving the performance of digital radiography (DR) in finding lung lesions by removing bony obstructions, but it requires specialized hardware. University of Chicago researchers may have found a software-based alternative.
Zero calcium score enough to send chest pain patients home
February 10, 2010 -- Patients presenting to the emergency room with chest pain who have zero calcium scores on cardiac CT probably can be discharged with a low likelihood of adverse events on follow-up, according to a study published online February 8 in the Annals of Emergency Medicine.
Study to compare 320-row CT perfusion against SPECT
February 10, 2010 -- Following up on the CORE 64 study that tested the value of coronary CT angiography vis-à-vis angiography, researchers have launched a new international trial to compare 320-detector-row CT perfusion to SPECT myocardial perfusion imaging for detecting early coronary artery disease.
FDA launches initiative to rein in medical radiation
February 9, 2010 -- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration this week announced an initiative to reduce unnecessary radiation exposure from CT, fluoroscopy, and nuclear medicine exams. The move is widely believed to be in response to reports of rising exposure to medical radiation in the U.S. population.
Stress perfusion CT adds value to coronary CT angiography
February 9, 2010 -- Combined stress perfusion CT imaging not only is feasible, it's potentially valuable for assessing some patients at risk of coronary artery disease in a one-modality imaging procedure, according to a study appearing this month in Radiology.
