Nicole Pettit[email protected]Residents/FellowsArt 101: Studying paintings helps residents spot findingsTo produce better radiologists, try some fine art, concludes a recent study in the Journal of the American College of Radiology. Researchers from Yale University found that teaching residents how to analyze a painting improved their ability to identify abnormalities on images.September 10, 2017EconomicsNeb. radiologist tracks tornadoes to find the perfect imageEveryone has a way to unwind after a busy workday -- but for most radiologists, it probably doesn't include chasing tornadoes. Nebraska radiologist Dr. Derek Burdeny is the exception, tracking storms and photographing them up close and personal across the U.S.January 17, 2017CTJust keep scanning: Project builds CT database of fishIs it possible to scan all the fish species in the world, store the data, and give it all away for free? One University of Washington professor believes it is -- and he's come up with some novel scanning techniques to move the project forward.October 24, 2016Practice ManagementCan the reading room go from sedentary to svelte?Stand up. Stroll. Fidget. These actions might seem small, but even minor steps can help radiologists counter the major health risks from so many hours spent sitting in front of screens. And it can be done without sabotaging performance, according to a recent article in the American Journal of Roentgenology.April 25, 20162014RSNA 2014 highlights 100 years of radiology historyThis year marks the 100th annual meeting for RSNA, and the society is pulling out all the historical stops to celebrate. RSNA 2014 attendees will be able to diagnose vintage x-ray images, see Wilhelm Roentgen's laboratory, and check out antique equipment, kicking off a yearlong centennial celebration that will end at the 2015 meeting.October 29, 20142014RSNA to show x-ray 'nature scenes' by Dutch medical physicistWhat happens if you combine x-rays, creatures large and small, and a diorama? You get a "biorama," as Dutch medical physicist and artist Arie van 't Riet, PhD, has termed his images. His artwork will be shown at the upcoming RSNA 2014 annual meeting in Chicago.October 8, 2014CTDinosaur vertebra fossil rises up in 3D from CT dataNoninvasive imaging techniques have long proved valuable for digging up the stories of fossils without damaging them. In a new study published online in Radiology, German researchers have gone a step further, making a carbon copy of a dinosaur vertebra using CT data and 3D printing.November 20, 2013MRIStanford neuroimaging center highlights MRI-based artworkWhile some people might wish to forget the experience of undergoing an MRI exam, others turn it into art. Inspired by scans of her own brain, California artist Laura Jacobson recently created a permanent collection of works for the Stanford Center for Cognitive and Neurobiological Imaging.June 27, 2013Product NewsRecord label swaps x-ray film for traditional vinylIf you're tired of reading x-rays, how about spinning them instead?
