DBT screening shows value in community practice settings
September 17, 2021 -- Digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) detected nearly twice as many cancers as conventional digital mammography in community practice settings, according to research published September 15 in the American Journal of Roentgenology. Read More
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
Deep learning reduces scan times for shoulder MRI
September 16, 2021 -- MRI reconstruction based on deep learning for shoulder exams allows clinicians to reduce scan times via accelerated protocols without compromising image quality, according to a study published September 15 in the American Journal of Roentgenology. Read More
Falling MRI scanner kills worker at Utah hospital
September 15, 2021 -- An MRI scanner that was being relocated killed a worker on September 15 when it fell to the ground outside the University of Utah Hospital. Another worker was injured in the incident, which is under investigation. Read More
Researchers tout algorithm that predicts breast cancer risk with DBT
September 15, 2021 -- Calculations of breast density that are derived from digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) exams may be more accurate than those derived from conventional 2D mammography in predicting cancer risk, according to research published September 14 in Radiology. Read More
Chest CT score predicts ventilation failure in COVID-19 patients
September 15, 2021 -- Scores of disease severity based on CT scans can help predict how COVID-19 patients will respond to noninvasive ventilation administered through an oxygen mask rather than through intubation, according to a study published September 11 in the Journal of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Anesthesia.
