New studies show how CT reveals 'silent' atherosclerosis
September 20, 2021 -- Atherosclerosis progresses undetected and is known as the silent killer. But cardiac CT can identify early signs of the disease in healthy people -- an important new finding for developing strategies to prevent it, according to studies published September 20 in the journals Circulation and Heart.

Dedicated CT lung cancer screening programs get the job done
September 17, 2021 -- A centralized lung cancer screening approach -- that is, a dedicated program to which patients are referred by primary care providers -- is more effective than sending people to a general radiology department, according to a study published September 15 in Chest. Read More
Can radiomics and AI characterize renal masses on preop CT?
September 17, 2021 -- The combination of radiomics and a machine-learning algorithm can differentiate benign from malignant renal masses, potentially helping to avoid unnecessary surgeries, according to research published online September 17 in European Urology Focus. Read More
Strength in numbers: Federated learning boosts AI for COVID-19
September 16, 2021 -- An algorithm trained using federated learning turned in highly accurate performance for predicting clinical outcomes in COVID-19 patients from chest x-rays and clinical data, according to research published online September 15 in Nature Medicine. Read More
Cardiac PET predicts outcomes in aortic stenosis
September 16, 2021 -- PET imaging has shown how impaired blood flow in small vessels of the heart may lead to myocardial stress and injury in patients with aortic stenosis, according to a study published online September 15 in JAMA Cardiology. Read More
Synthesized mammo plus DBT handles calcifications differently
September 16, 2021 -- A new study has found similarities between the performance of digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) combined with synthesized mammography and the performance of DBT plus full-field digital mammography. But the two combinations differed in how they handled the recall of patients with calcifications. Read More
