Native American, rural women have less access to breast MRI
June 27, 2014 -- Most U.S. women have relatively easy access to mammography and breast ultrasound, but breast MRI presents a greater challenge, especially for Native American women and those in rural areas, according to a new study published online in the Journal of the American College of Radiology.

Nodule size matters in Italian CT lung cancer screening study
June 26, 2014 -- Italian researchers believe they have struck a good balance in CT lung cancer screening by following up suspicious nodules at a slightly larger size threshold than that used in previous studies. By only following up nodules 5 mm and larger rather than 4 mm, they achieved good sensitivity with fewer false positives, according to a new study in the Journal of Thoracic Oncology.
Radiologist pens medical thriller with genre-bending twist
June 25, 2014 -- Radiology residents having sex in the call room. A drug-addicted chief resident and corrupt administrators. Quenching MRI magnets.

New volume-based criteria from NIH predict cancer survival
June 25, 2014 -- Tumor assessment criteria that account for both tumor density and volume more accurately reflect tumor burden, and they may improve treatment monitoring by predicting outcomes earlier than methods that rely only on tumor density, according to research from the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH).
4-scan PET/MRI exams improve breast imaging
June 25, 2014 -- Austrian researchers added PET/CT to a package of three MRI sequences to create fused PET/MR images, which they found aided in the differentiation of suspicious breast lesions, according to a new study published online in Clinical Cancer Research.
JAMA: Adding tomo to mammography finds more cancer
June 24, 2014 -- Adding digital breast tomosynthesis to mammography screening boosts the detection of invasive cancer by more than a third compared to mammography alone while reducing the number of false positives by 15%, according to a study in the June 25 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association.
