Is screening with DBT worth the additional cost?
September 16, 2019 -- Shifting breast screening from digital mammography to digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) reduces recall rates, but it achieves only modest improvements in breast cancer deaths averted or life years saved -- while costing above commonly accepted cost-effectiveness ranges, according to research published online September 10 in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.  Discuss
New 3D bioprinting method produces functional organ tissue
September 16, 2019 -- Researchers from Harvard University have developed a new 3D bioprinting method that uses a combination of stem cells and 3D CT data to produce functional, patient-specific organ tissue. The resulting 3D-bioprinted models are poised to facilitate organ repair and restoration, according to an article recently published online in Science Advances.
AI detects pulmonary nodules on chest x-rays
September 16, 2019 -- A computer-aided detection software application based on artificial intelligence (AI) is able to identify pulmonary nodules quickly and accurately on chest x-rays, offering potential to serve as a triage or second-reading tool for radiologists, according to research published online September 11 in Clinical Radiology.  Discuss
Varian taps power of AI for Ethos adaptive therapy unit
September 15, 2019 -- What if you could harness the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to guide radiation therapy treatments that adapt in real-time to changes in tumors? Varian Medical Systems is trying just that with its new Ethos system, launching at this week's American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) meeting in Chicago.  Discuss
AI can differentiate parkinsonism on DWI-MRI
September 13, 2019 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm can distinguish between parkinsonian syndromes on diffusion-weighted MRI (DWI-MRI) exams at an accuracy level comparable to that of current gold-standard methods, according to research recently published online in Lancet Digital Health.  Discuss
Nonphysicians rarely interpret imaging -- except x-ray
September 13, 2019 -- Nonphysician providers such as nurse practitioners and physician assistants are playing a bigger role in providing imaging-guided procedures across the U.S. But they seldom interpret diagnostic images, according to a study published online September 11 in the American Journal of Roentgenology.  Discuss
