Vivienne Raper[email protected]MRIAcceptance of gadolinium-free techniques increases in clinical MRICan MRI function effectively without gadolinium? This question is more relevant than ever, as the safety of gadolinium-based MRI contrast agents has become a hot topic and knowledge and awareness of gadolinium deposition have grown in recent years. Three experts discussed whether gadolinium alternatives are ready now for clinical practice.March 2, 2019ISBeware the perils of revealing data on social mediaSharing patient data on Facebook and WhatsApp involves a breach of European data protection regulations and can have serious consequences, according to Dr. Erik Ranschaert, PhD, president of the European Society of Medical Imaging Informatics. At today's Special Focus session at ECR 2019, his goal was to raise awareness of the issue, and he shared some secure alternatives.February 28, 2019Advanced Visualization3D printing transitions from laboratory to bedsideThree-dimensional printing has spread from craniomaxillofacial surgery to a wide range of medical disciplines, and it can help demonstrate the value of radiologists in a future with artificial intelligence and machine learning. That's the view of Dr. Philipp Brantner, joint head of the 3D Printing Lab at the University Hospital of Basel in Switzerland.February 27, 20192018Cybersecurity threats pose challenge to radiology's futureKeep aware of the need to protect imaging equipment from cyberrisks that pose a threat to the safety of patients and institutions, urged Dr. Jacob Sosna, president of the Israeli Radiology Association, in a session today on cybersecurity. He warned that a cyberattack could alter a patient's radiation dose during a CT scan, and an attack on the hospital's air-conditioning may shut down and damage CT and MRI machines.March 2, 20182018Radiologists can future-proof themselves by embracing 3D visualizationThere are many new applications for imaging data, and radiologists need to jump in to make themselves future-proof, according to Dr. Peter van Ooijen from the University Medical Centre Groningen in the Netherlands. Technologies for 3D visualization are rapidly gaining importance, and to guarantee their future survival, radiologists must understand their potential, as well as their pitfalls.February 27, 20182017Under stress: Radiologists embrace novel ways to tackle burnoutIncreasing workloads are among the factors leading to a rise in burnout among radiologists. They are tackling more cases, interpreting more images, and under increased pressure not to make mistakes, notes Dr. Myriam Hunink, PhD, from the Erasmus University Medical Centre in the Netherlands. But there are many practical things radiologists can do to avoid burnout, according to experts.March 3, 20172017How radiology can find new roles in post-PACS, networked worldAn unexpected consequence of PACS is that radiologists are increasingly sidelined by referring physicians, who can look at images to make a diagnosis and not even read the radiology report. This problem is confounded as physicians grow more specialized. Radiologists are in real danger if they don't change the way they work, according to Dr. Johan Van Goethem from Antwerp University Hospital in Belgium.March 3, 20172017U.K. pushes ahead with sonographer-led servicesJudged on the composition of today's eagerly awaited professional challenges session, more healthcare professionals are looking to the U.K. for an alternative model for ultrasound services, yet that model is evolving largely due to a shortage of appropriately trained staff.March 2, 20172017Can radiology ever be more like widget manufacturing?Radiologists could adopt the systematic quality control methods of the manufacturing industry, above and beyond the use of structured reporting. That's the belief of Dr. Christoph Wald, chairman of radiology at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center and professor of radiology at Tufts University Medical School in Boston.February 28, 2017Page 1 of 1Top StoriesCTLR-M category tied to lower survival in HCC resection patientsNon-liver cancer-specific malignant lesions (LR-M) on CT or MRI are tied to lower overall survival in patients with solitary HCC undergoing resection.Artificial IntelligenceImaging AI yields opportunities, challenges in sustainabilityPractice ManagementRegulatory issues facing radiology groups in 2024Advanced VisualizationResearchers create new MRI brain extraction tool for neonatesSponsor ContentWe care about what you think.
