FDA in hand, EchoPixel preps for launch of True 3D platform
March 24, 2015 -- Advanced visualization developer EchoPixel is moving its True 3D Viewer technology to market after receiving clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the platform, which creates holographic displays from CT and MRI data.
Apple announces ResearchKit app software for medical researchers
March 10, 2015 -- Apple introduced ResearchKit, an open-source software framework designed to benefit medical researchers, at its March 2015 Special Event on Monday. Using ResearchKit, researchers will be able to more easily design apps that allow patients to remotely consent to join clinical trials and provide data.
Automated perfusion mapping falls short in stroke
March 8, 2015 -- VIENNA - Automatically generated color CT perfusion maps have a role in the emergency care of ischemic stroke patients, but they are less accurate than manually generated maps, according to research presented at ECR 2015.
CTPA-based prediction model nails pulmonary hypertension
March 7, 2015 -- VIENNA - When do suspected pulmonary embolism patients actually have pulmonary hypertension (PH)? Although the treatment approach for the conditions is quite different, their presentation can be similar. But a new CT pulmonary angiography (CTPA) tool can accurately predict PH in patients without pulmonary embolism, according to researchers from Israel.
CAD boosts breast MRI sensitivity
March 6, 2015 -- VIENNA - Breast MRI already has high sensitivity, but can it be even higher? The answer is yes, if computer-aided detection (CAD) is thrown into the mix, according to a presentation at ECR 2015. In fact, the CAD system detected previously missed cancers nearly as well as it did screen-detected cancers.
CAD becomes a spell-check for small polyps
March 6, 2015 -- Computer-aided detection (CAD) can only enhance performance if used correctly, and it does not reduce the need for training, according to a presentation on Friday at ECR 2015 in Vienna. CAD for colonography has shown promise, but radiologists need to understand sensitivity and specificity issues, as well as when CAD should be deployed.
Vertebral CAD aces detection of compression fractures
February 26, 2015 -- A new computer-aided detection (CAD) scheme can robustly detect vertebral compression fractures on spine CT images. The algorithm was developed by a team led by Dr. Ronald Summers, PhD, from the U.S. National Institutes of Health.
Applying CAD twice to DBT improves performance at lower dose
February 23, 2015 -- Researchers from the University of Michigan have developed a new double-barreled approach to computer-aided detection (CAD) that uses two separate CAD algorithms on digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) exams. They believe the technique enables a high level of sensitivity with lower radiation dose.
Technique boosts x-ray CAD results for TB
February 2, 2015 -- Dutch researchers have developed an algorithm to improve the robustness of computer-aided detection (CAD) to identify tuberculosis (TB) on chest x-rays -- enabling CAD to significantly improve the detection of thoracic abnormalities.
