November 30, 2016 -- CHICAGO - A deep learning method offers potential for providing a "human-like" diagnosis on chest x-rays, a group from the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinical Center reported this week at the 2016 RSNA meeting.
Prostate CAD boosts detection for most readers
November 29, 2016 -- CHICAGO - MRI-based computer-aided detection (CAD) can improve detection sensitivity for prostate cancer for most readers, while reducing reading time fourfold, according to a Tuesday presentation at RSNA 2016.
Virtual reality takes prenatal imaging to new heights
November 22, 2016 -- Brazilian researchers are vaulting over conventional fetal imaging techniques with a virtual reality system that brings realism to the interaction between a fetus and its parents, according to a study to be presented at the RSNA 2016 meeting in Chicago.
Can deep learning characterize breast tumors on SWE?
November 15, 2016 -- Deep learning can accurately differentiate benign and malignant breast tumors on ultrasound shear-wave elastography (SWE) and outperform methods typically used in computer-aided diagnosis software, according to research published in the December issue of Ultrasonics.
CT reveals complex function of bird beaks
November 11, 2016 -- An innovative CT technique has revealed that bird beaks function as complex radiators, cooling systems, and humidifiers all in one, and they vary according to habitat, according to new research published in ornithology journal The Auk: Ornithological Advances.
3D-printed transducer focuses ultrasound waves
October 26, 2016 -- Researchers have found a way to control high-pressure ultrasound to manipulate, move, or destroy structures noninvasively by using 3D-printed laser-generated focused ultrasound transducers, according to a new report in Applied Physics Letters.
Just keep scanning: Project builds CT database of fish
October 25, 2016 -- Is it possible to scan all the fish species in the world, store the data, and give it all away for free? One University of Washington professor believes it is -- and he's come up with some novel scanning techniques to move the project forward.
Dubai hospitals to implement 3D printing before surgery
October 18, 2016 -- Hospitals in Dubai will begin 3D printing organs before surgery beginning in 2017, with the goal of improving the accuracy of all kinds of surgeries, according to a report in Gulf News.
Center refines 3D printing to build 'replacement parts'
October 13, 2016 -- The good news is that humans are living longer. The bad news is that our bodies are wearing out as we age, creating the need for replacement parts that are customized to individual patients. A center in Arizona is doing just that, developing 3D printing techniques to keep people healthy and active into their old age.
