3D-printed craniofacial models support family consults
April 22, 2019 -- Researchers from Saudi Arabia have created 3D-printed models based on the CT scans of children with craniofacial deformities. Examining the models significantly increased the parents' likelihood of consenting to surgical treatment, according to a study recently published online in the Journal of Craniofacial Surgery.  Discuss
How will PACS evolve over the next decade?
April 22, 2019 -- PACS has evolved over the past 35 years, and the next decade will be no different. The next generation of PACS technology will be driven by trends such as enterprise imaging, workflow, and artificial intelligence, according to this new column by Herman Oosterwijk of OTech.  Discuss
Can videos convince smokers to get CT lung screening?
April 19, 2019 -- Smokers who watched a video and read a brochure on the potential harms and benefits of CT lung cancer screening had a better understanding of the exam and had more confidence in their decision to get screened, according to an article published online April 17 in the Annals of the American Thoracic Society.  Discuss
4 practical applications of VR, AR in radiology
April 19, 2019 -- Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) are emerging as key tools for advancing education, communication, and clinical care in radiology. Researchers offer details on several practical applications of the technologies as they are being used throughout various hospitals in an article published online April 16 in Radiology.  Discuss
Women benefit from ACA's ban on mammography co-pays
April 18, 2019 -- The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act's (ACA) elimination of co-pays for screening mammography in 2010 has had a positive benefit for commercially insured women across a variety of racial and income groups, a study published online April 13 in the Journal of Women's Health has found.  Discuss
AI can identify, classify prostate cancer on mpMRI
April 18, 2019 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm called FocalNet was able to identify prostate cancer on multiparametric MRI (mpMRI) nearly as well as experienced radiologists and also predicted the lesion's aggressiveness, according to research presented at the recent IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging in Venice, Italy.  Discuss
MRE could measure brain function dramatically faster
April 17, 2019 -- U.S. and European researchers could be on the brink of advancing the measurements of brain function through a MRI brain scan to milliseconds with an MR elastography technique, according to a preclinical study published online April 17 in Science Advances.  Discuss
Ga-68 PSMA PET/CT for prostate wins Australian favor
April 17, 2019 -- When a prostate cancer staging exam is needed, clinicians at one Australian hospital are overwhelmingly choosing PET/CT with the radiopharmaceutical gallium-68 (Ga-68) prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA), according to a study published online April 11 in the Journal of Medical Imaging and Radiation Oncology.  Discuss
AI can spot malpositioned catheters on pediatric x-rays
April 17, 2019 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm can automatically analyze pediatric x-rays to identify patients with incorrectly positioned catheters, potentially enabling these studies to be triaged for priority review by radiologists, according to research published online April 10 in the Journal of Digital Imaging.  Discuss
