Study finds diet is crucial for protecting knees
November 28, 2017 -- Knee cartilage degeneration from osteoarthritis can be slowed in obese people who lose a substantial amount of weight, but only if diet is a component of the weight-loss regimen, according to research presented on November 28 at the RSNA 2017 meeting.  Discuss
Fat distribution linked to heart attack risk
November 28, 2017 -- Where a person's body fat is stored may increase their risk of having a heart attack, a stroke, and diabetes -- and the level of risk may also be influenced by the person's sex, according to research presented on November 28 at the RSNA 2017 meeting in Chicago.  Discuss
MRI technique may help diagnose migraine headaches
November 28, 2017 -- While painful and often debilitating for patients, migraines can also be difficult to diagnose and differentiate from other types of headaches. An MRI technique may help alleviate that diagnostic challenge, according to research presented on November 28 at the RSNA 2017 meeting in Chicago.  Discuss
3D printing lowers risk and cost of testing FFR-CT
November 27, 2017 -- CHICAGO - What if there were a low-risk, cost-effective way to validate the numerous fractional flow reserve CT (FFR-CT) technologies in development? Patient-specific 3D-printed coronary models may be the answer, according to a study presented on Monday at RSNA 2017.  Discuss
Video from RSNA 2017: How will AI change radiology?
November 27, 2017 -- CHICAGO - The past year has witnessed huge advances in the development of artificial intelligence (AI) for healthcare applications.

Researchers resolve PET/MRI issue for epilepsy patients
November 27, 2017 -- CHICAGO - Researchers believe they have overcome the challenge of attenuation correction in PET/MRI to ensure diagnostic image quality in brain scans of patients with medically refractory epilepsy, according to a study presented on Tuesday at the RSNA 2017 annual meeting.  Discuss
Video from RSNA 2017: What can radiologists do to be more patient-centered?
November 27, 2017 -- CHICAGO - Radiologists are being told they need to interact more with patients, but this is easier said than done. What are the barriers that can impede radiologist-patient interaction, and how can they be overcome? Dr. Jennifer Kemp of Diversified Radiology in Colorado gives some suggestions.  Discuss
USPSTF's breast cancer screening recs dampen compliance
November 27, 2017 -- CHICAGO - Over the past 15 years, screening mammography guidelines have changed dramatically, leaving women confused about when to start. A big factor in these changes has been the 2009 recommendations from the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF), according to research presented on Monday at RSNA 2017.  Discuss
