Week in review: The Match | 5-year breast cancer risk | Liver disease progression

Dear AuntMinnie Member,

Radiology showed its colors on Match Day 2024 as nearly all available resident positions for both diagnostic and interventional radiology were filled -- a result that bodes well for the specialty in the coming years.

In fact, interventional radiology had the fifth-highest percentage (91.4%) among positions filled with U.S. MD and DO seniors. Click here to read a full Match Day report -- our most-read story this week.

Our second most-read article for the week described research that found that an AI model used with mammogram data can predict five-year breast cancer risk. Also in our Women's Imaging content area, we featured coverage of a study that showed women with knowledge of AI are more willing to participate in AI imaging studies and another that found an increase in CTPA among pregnant women.

Our third most clicked story was a report on the use of an ultrasound model to predict liver disease progression. Check out our Ultrasound content area for more on this modality's many benefits, including our article on ChatGPT-4's performance in interpreting thyroid and renal ultrasound images.

Are radiologists akin to Major League Baseball batters? Our fourth top story -- a video interview with neuroscientist Robert Alexander, PhD, of the New York Institute of Technology in New York City -- explained why this may be true and how it could help radiologists perform even better when it comes to interpreting images.

Our fifth most-clicked report for the week was the latest episode of the "Keeping Up With the Radiologists" podcast, during which hosts Saurabh Jha, MD, and Mitchell Schnall, MD, PhD, discussed whether current radiology AI offerings are addressing practices' needs. Navigate to our Podcasts content area for more.

Finally, don't miss this week's coverage on the ways powering down idle interventional radiology systems can reduce the specialty's environmental impact; the promising results of combining MRI and ultrasound to help treat prostate cancer; how PACS industry veteran and DR Systems founder Murray Reicher, MD, is launching a new cloud workflow platform; and recent PET/MRI findings that suggest people with late-life depression may be more resilient than previously thought.
