Week in review: ECR 2024 coverage | FDA approves Clear Guide Scenergy | 'Theragnomics' and molecular imaging

Dear AuntMinnie Member,

The annual ECR meeting in Vienna is a veritable showcase for exciting new radiology research, and this year was no exception. Our most-read story of the week reported on a presentation at the conference that described how abbreviated MRI for high-risk breast cancer screening is gathering momentum. Readers also enjoyed our ECR coverage of how patient feedback is key to making MRI exams more comfortable; how radiographers appear optimistic about AI's role in their work and how the technology helps quantify fatty tissue on chest CT for lung cancer prognosis; and the future of "theragnomics" in molecular imaging.

Our second most-clicked story reported on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) approval of Clear Guide Medical's Scenergy computer-aided instrument guidance system, while another popular story highlighted the FDA's clearance of Lantheus Medical Imaging's Definity ultrasound contrast agent for use with pediatric patients.

Also of interest to AuntMinnie.com readers this week included research suggesting that it might be worth having patients avoid food such as Egg McMuffins before gastric emptying scintigraphy (GES); a study that demonstrated how PET lung scan exam times could be cut in half; and work that highlighted how MRI-guided focused ultrasound (MRgFUS) shows promise for treating prostate cancer.
