SNMMI: FDG-PET/MRI improves pain diagnosis, management
June 24, 2019 -- ANAHEIM, CA - By identifying increased metabolic activity or inflammation associated with chronic pain, FDG-PET/MRI can improve care management strategies for a majority of patients, according to a study presented Sunday at the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) annual meeting.  Discuss
AI can improve reproducibility of radiomics in CT
June 24, 2019 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm may be able to help overcome one of the biggest issues limiting the clinical use of radiomics in CT -- the low reproducibility of quantitative imaging features on images from different reconstruction algorithms, according to research published online June 18 in Radiology.  Discuss
SNMMI: PSMA-PET helps guide prostate cancer therapy
June 23, 2019 -- ANAHEIM, CA - Adding an interim prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA)-PET scan during therapy can help guide treatment for patients with prostate cancer, according to a study presented Sunday at the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) annual meeting.  Discuss
BBC: X-rays show signs of young adults growing 'horns'
June 21, 2019 -- The internet exploded this week after the BBC published an article that used x-ray images to back claims that young adults who used smartphones extensively were growing bony protuberances -- basically, horns -- on their skulls.  Discuss
Is perfusion MRI best to rule on revascularization?
June 21, 2019 -- Myocardial perfusion cardiovascular MRI cannot top angiography and fractional flow reserve measurements in determining which symptomatic patients with coronary artery disease risk factors need revascularization, according to a study published June 20 in the New England Journal of Medicine.  Discuss
