Deep learning performs superresolution MSK MRI
April 11, 2018 -- A deep-learning algorithm can transform low-resolution, thick-slice knee MR images into high-resolution, thin-slice images -- potentially yielding faster image acquisition, lower costs, and fewer motion artifacts in musculoskeletal MRI, according to research published online in Magnetic Resonance in Medicine.  Discuss
US body fat measure predicts obstetric complications
April 11, 2018 -- A woman's body fat index measured by ultrasound appears to be a better gauge of the possibility of obstetric complications than body mass index, according to research presented at the recent American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine meeting in New York City.  Discuss
Report to blame 'overburdened' staff for fatal MRI scan
April 10, 2018 -- A preliminary report into the death of a man pulled into the bore of an MRI scanner at an Indian hospital will blame an "overburdened" staff at the Mumbai hospital for not following proper security and safety procedures at the time of the January accident.  Discuss
Study questions use of whole-body CT for kids with trauma
April 10, 2018 -- Does examining whole-body CT scans of children who present to the emergency department with blunt trauma improve their survival more than evaluating select CT scans of the patients' injured areas? Not in the least, found a study published online April 9 in JAMA Pediatrics.  Discuss
NVIDIA aims to bring imaging AI to the people with Clara
April 10, 2018 -- While artificial intelligence (AI) is poised to reshape radiology, older imaging systems may be left behind, unable to handle the massive computational workload required to run AI algorithms. But graphics processing unit developer NVIDIA hopes to solve this problem with its Clara virtual supercomputing platform.  Discuss
MRI technique could let cardiac patients breathe easier
April 10, 2018 -- Researchers at Cedars-Sinai are giving the term multitasking a new meaning by developing an MRI technique that eliminates breath-holds and shortens cardiac scan time, according to a paper published online April 9 in Nature Biomedical Engineering.  Discuss
CT dose comes under close scrutiny in Saudi Arabia
April 10, 2018 -- A comprehensive study of diagnostic reference levels (DRLs) in Saudi Arabia has shown that the current levels are comparable with European DRLs, thanks to cutting-edge imaging technology, but patient dose varies between departments depending on scanning mode and protocols used.  Discuss
MRI shows maternal depression meds affect babies' brains
April 9, 2018 -- Babies whose mothers took medication to control their depression were found to have significantly more gray matter on MRI scans in several brain regions than infants whose mothers did not receive medication for their condition, according to a study published online April 9 in JAMA Pediatrics.  Discuss
Philips issues security advisory for PACS software
April 9, 2018 -- Philips Healthcare and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Industrial Control Systems Cyber Emergency Response Team have issued security advisories regarding potential vulnerabilities in the vendor's iSite and IntelliSpace PACS software.  Discuss
PET tracer may predict depression treatment success
April 9, 2018 -- A new PET tracer designed to target a certain protein in the amygdala is showing promise for determining the efficacy of treatment for major depressive disorder, according to a study published in the April issue of the Journal of Nuclear Medicine.  Discuss
