CT radiomics, machine learning predict melanoma survival
January 21, 2022 -- The combination of CT radiomics and machine learning can predict survival of melanoma patients after immunotherapy better than relying only on tumor size data, according to research published online January 20 in JAMA Oncology. Read More
Completion of CT lung screening varies between groups in Hawaii
January 20, 2022 -- Participation in CT lung cancer screening varied among Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islander, and Asian individuals in a population-based study out of Hawaii published January 20 in JAMA Network Open. Read More
AI reconstruction aids lung nodule detection on ultralow-dose CT
January 20, 2022 -- A deep learning-based image reconstruction algorithm can enable detection of more lung nodules on ultralow-dose CT exams -- at radiation doses comparable to a chest x-ray, according to a study published January 18 in Radiology. Read More
CT lung screening of low-risk women leads to overdiagnosis
January 18, 2022 -- A new study from Taiwan found that performing CT lung cancer screening on mostly low-risk women who didn't smoke leads to "considerable" lung cancer overdiagnosis. The results were published January 18 in JAMA Internal Medicine. Read More
New USPSTF guidelines reduce CT lung screening disparities
January 13, 2022 -- New recommendations from the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) on CT lung cancer screening provide more access to screening for African Americans, according to research published January 13 in JAMA Oncology. Read More
Photon-counting CT improves interstitial pneumonia diagnosis
January 12, 2022 -- Photon-counting CT improves reader confidence when it comes to diagnosing interstitial pneumonia -- and it reduces radiation dose by more than 17%, according to research presented at the recent RSNA 2021 meeting. Read More
3D printing enhances treatment of kidney stones
January 12, 2022 -- The combination of percutaneous nephrolithotomy and 3D-printed models produced from patient CT scans enables significantly better treatment of complex renal calculi, or kidney stones, according to research published January 10 in Scientific Reports. Read More
AI could speed up CT lung cancer screening
January 10, 2022 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm performs comparably to radiologists for reading low-dose CT lung cancer screening exams and could help reduce the workload in screening programs, according to a study published January 6 in Lung Cancer. Read More
Radiomics model distinguishes vertebral compression fractures
January 10, 2022 -- A prediction model based on radiomics and traditional imaging findings was able to differentiate acute and chronic vertebral compression fractures on CT exams, according to research published online January 6 in Academic Radiology. Read More
