3DHeals conference explores 3D printing and more
March 22, 2017 -- 3D printing is revolutionizing medicine -- and radiology with it. But what's the best way to learn about this emerging discipline? The 3DHeals International Conference, being held in San Francisco on April 20, will explore 3D printing in healthcare with an eye on virtual reality, augmented reality, and artificial intelligence.  Discuss
Quantitative imaging biomarkers show promise for NASH
March 7, 2017 -- Quantitative imaging biomarkers are a promising approach for evaluating normal biological or pathogenic processes, as well as response to treatment and intervention. One near-term clinical application is the assessment of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), according to Lola Koktysh of ScienceSoft.  Discuss
Color mapping boosts vessel interpretation in stroke CT
March 6, 2017 -- VIENNA - Color mapping of cerebral vasculature in 4D CT angiography speeds interpretation and may improve accuracy in the detection of vessel occlusions in acute stroke patients, researchers said on Sunday at ECR 2017.  Discuss
Brain maps aid understanding of human cognition
March 4, 2017 -- VIENNA - Detailed brain maps compiled from voxel-based morphometry of brain MR images can yield new insights into human cognition, including evidence that the hippocampus has an important role in executive function, according to a Saturday morning presentation at ECR 2017.  Discuss
ECR 2017 stands tall as showcase for product launches
March 4, 2017 -- VIENNA - The European Congress of Radiology in recent years has come into its own as a showcase for new launches of medical imaging products. ECR 2017 was no exception, with a variety of new scanner debuts in MRI, CT, and other modalities.  Discuss
Chest CT with iterative recon achieves x-ray doses
March 4, 2017 -- VIENNA - Chest CT scans acquired at radiation doses as low as an x-ray showed lesions of all kinds conspicuously, using the latest dual-source CT scanner and iterative reconstruction. Individualized approaches tailored to specific lesion types cut the dose even further, researchers said on Friday at ECR 2017.  Discuss
Neural networks read mammograms as well as radiologists
March 3, 2017 -- VIENNA - Deep artificial neural networks can read mammograms as well as radiologists, according to research from Switzerland presented at ECR 2017 on Thursday. Neural networks can also be trained with a relatively small amount of data, the group found.  Discuss
CAD beats readers for subsolid lung nodules
March 3, 2017 -- VIENNA - A computer-aided detection (CAD) scheme outperformed experienced human readers in detecting subsolid nodules as well as cancers in data from more than 2,000 lung cancer screening subjects, researchers reported on Thursday at ECR 2017.  Discuss
Software quantifies emphysema on MDCT images
March 2, 2017 -- VIENNA - An automated software algorithm can be used to quantify emphysema on MDCT studies, offering radiologists a useful tool for diagnosis and follow-up of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, according to research presented on Thursday at ECR 2017.  Discuss
Artifact reduction algorithm boosts utility of 4D CT
February 27, 2017 -- Four-dimensional CT images can improve radiation therapy planning in the upper thorax and abdomen, but motion artifacts often make the images nondiagnostic. New algorithms that provide deformable registration and respiratory motion simulation clear up the picture.  Discuss
