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.
CAD for breast CT is improved with spiculation detection
January 15, 2015 -- University of Chicago researchers significantly improved the performance of their computer-aided detection (CAD) algorithm for breast CT studies by having it detect lesion spiculation automatically, according to a new study.
New display calibration method may boost color image viewing
January 8, 2015 -- Although color now pervades medical imaging, currently accepted calibration methods for imaging displays still rely on assessing gray levels. Display calibration may soon enter the color era, however, if a proposed extension to the DICOM Grayscale Standard Display Function is adopted.
CAD for virtual monochromatic CTC images shows high accuracy
January 6, 2015 -- A computer-aided detection (CAD) algorithm analyzed virtual monochromatic dual-energy CT colonography (CTC) images accurately with few false positives in a study from Massachusetts General Hospital. The researchers believe the study could pave the way to more accurate minimal-prep CTC.
CAD detects lymph nodes at chest CT
December 24, 2014 -- A new automated tool developed at the National Institutes of Health can detect mediastinal and abdominal enlarged lymph nodes more accurately than previous techniques, according to a presentation at the 2014 RSNA meeting.
Philips targets image-guided therapy with 1.2B bid for Volcano
December 17, 2014 -- Continuing an aggressive expansion of its image-guided therapy and interventional radiology business, Philips Healthcare has inked a deal to pay $1.2 billion to acquire Volcano, a developer of intravascular ultrasound and fractional flow reserve technology.
Texture analysis sorts out indecipherable kidney lesions
December 3, 2014 -- CHICAGO - Researchers from Johns Hopkins University have found a way to differentiate benign from malignant kidney lesions with great accuracy, solving a problem that has defied solutions since the advent of CT.
GE revives Signa MRI brand, launches CT and DBT
December 2, 2014 -- CHICAGO - The return of its storied Signa brand in MRI, a new family of Revolution CT scanners, and a new digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) system with market clearance are among the new product introductions at RSNA 2014 for multimodality vendor GE Healthcare.
