Week in review: Radiology coding changes | fMRI and tinnitus | Breast density notification

Dear AuntMinnie.com Member,

How do recent coding changes affect radiology? Our most highly viewed article of the week has the answers.

In a new column, Erin Stephens of Healthcare Administrative Partners shares what radiology practices need to know. Click here to get all of the details.

Patients who suffer from severe chronic tinnitus may be able to find more relief with real-time functional MRI neurofeedback therapy. A new study found that the technique yielded better results than the standard treatment of cognitive behavioral therapy. You can access our second-most popular article by clicking here.

An article published by Australian researchers criticizing narratives surrounding breast density notification raised eyebrows this week. Click here for our report.

In addition, episode 2 of the Keeping up with the Radiologists podcast series was popular with AuntMinnie.com members this week. The latest edition features an interview with Robert Grossman, MD, CEO of NYU Langone Health and dean of the NYU Grossman School of Medicine. In a wide-ranging discussion, Grossman ventured deep into how his life experiences shaped his professional development and his strong opinions about the affordability of medical school education. Grossman played a pivotal role of turning vision into reality with tuition-free medical school opportunities in the New York City region. You can access the podcast here.

Meanwhile, researchers from Portugal have determined that eye-tracking data that map how radiologists interpret chest radiographs could enable development of AI algorithms that could potentially bridge the gap between deep-learning models and human understanding. Click here for our coverage.

And indeed, it’s the human-AI partnership that should be the goal for chest radiography, according to researchers from the University of Pennsylvania. Click here for our video interview with Warren Gefter, MD.

If a woman’s social needs aren’t being met, she is less likely to receive breast cancer screening, according to a new study. Researchers found that factors such as housing instability, social isolation, food insecurity, and transportation challenges were tied to lower rates of screening mammography.
