Motion correction improves CT lung tumor assessment
December 17, 2015 -- Perfusion CT is emerging as a useful way to assess the treatment of lung cancer patients, but respiratory motion can cause problems with images. Fortunately, researchers from California and Pennsylvania have discovered a motion correction algorithm that can help.  Discuss
Automated CAC fares well in CT lung screening scans
December 7, 2015 -- CHICAGO - Automated coronary artery calcium (CAC) scoring is robust and accurate when applied to lung cancer screening exams -- even when applied to a different population than the algorithm was designed for, according to results presented on Thursday at the 2015 RSNA meeting.  Discuss
CT, 3D printing help team separate conjoined girls
December 3, 2015 -- CHICAGO - In an amazing 26-hour operation, a multidisciplinary team used CT scans and a 3D-printed model of the organs of conjoined twins to help perform a successful separation. Details of the effort were presented at this week's RSNA conference.  Discuss
Gaming console might help produce better x-rays
December 1, 2015 -- CHICAGO - The gaming console your children use to destroy alien villains on distant fictional planets may help radiologists improve the quality of x-rays, researchers reported at the annual RSNA conference.  Discuss
3D images aid selection of heart transplant donors
November 19, 2015 -- Researchers in Arizona are building a virtual library of 3D hearts in a bid to improve the matching process between heart transplant donors and recipients, and to make the best use of the perpetually tight supply of donor organs.  Discuss
Forget Watson -- it's the pigeons you should worry about
November 18, 2015 -- If you think artificial intelligence could replace radiologists someday, there may be a new menace: It turns out that pigeons can distinguish benign from malignant tissue and identify certain cancer features with similar accuracy as their human counterparts, according to a new study published in PLOS One.  Discuss
Tips for implementing 3D printing at your hospital
November 4, 2015 -- Although 3D printing as a core service in healthcare is still in its infancy, many innovative institutions have been blazing a path. In this article, Todd Pietila of 3D software developer Materialise offers tips for starting a 3D printing service at your facility.  Discuss
Hybrid lung CAD scheme improves accuracy
October 23, 2015 -- A hybrid computer-aided detection (CAD) algorithm for lung nodules showed high sensitivity with very few false positives, according to new research in Medical Physics.  Discuss
3D printing helps shape radiation therapy to patients
October 12, 2015 -- New uses abound for 3D printing -- and now you can add radiation therapy to the list. A Canadian medical physicist has developed a 3D printing technique that converts data from CT scans of patients into wearable pads that help radiation beams conform to patient anatomy.  Discuss
3D ultrasound-based hip segmentation is fast, accurate
October 6, 2015 -- A new automated hip segmentation algorithm that uses 3D ultrasound data produced accurate segmentations of the acetabulum in infant hips, according to a study in the International Journal of Computer Assisted Radiology and Surgery. The technique could improve the diagnosis of infants with developmental dysplasia of the hip.  Discuss
