Long-term breast cancer survivors die from other diseases December 17, 2019 -- Women who live more than 10 years after a diagnosis of breast cancer are more likely to die of diseases other than cancer, such as heart and cerebrovascular diseases, according to a large study published online on December 16 in Cancer. Researchers attribute the finding to improved therapies that are enabling women to survive longer.Read More
CT links vaping to ARDS in new case studies December 17, 2019 -- Radiologists identified vaping-related lung injury patterns on the CT scans of patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) in two recent reports out of New Jersey and Missouri. Early recognition of these imaging patterns could prove vital to timely and appropriate treatment for these patients.Read More
Enterprise Imaging: Changing radiology and patient care December 16, 2019 -- How is Enterprise Imaging changing the workflow of radiology? In this video, Dr. Sri Redla, FRCR, FBIR, consultant radiologist at Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust in the U.K., discusses the hospital's move to Enterprise Imaging with Agfa HealthCare, and how it changed their workflow -- leading to better patient care.Read More
Biopsy protocol rules out surgery for women after chemo December 16, 2019 -- Vacuum-assisted image-guided breast biopsy can reliably predict which breast cancer patients treated with chemotherapy have responded well enough that follow-up surgery is not required to remove residual cancer, according to a December 13 presentation at the 2019 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium.Read More
Death risk higher for government-insured breast cancer patients December 13, 2019 -- Women with breast cancer who were insured with Medicare or Medicaid had lower survival rates than those patients who had private insurance in two large treatment clinical trials, according to a study presented on December 13 at the 2019 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium.Read More
AI can accurately predict uterine fibroid embolization outcomes December 13, 2019 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm's analysis of MRI exams performed prior to uterine fibroid embolization can be more accurate than radiologists in predicting whether the procedure will be successful, according to research presented at the recent RSNA 2019 meeting in Chicago.Read More
PET/MRI tops MRI in breast lesion comparisons December 13, 2019 -- PET/MRI is better than MRI alone for the detection and staging of nodes and distant metastases in women with breast cancer, according to a study presented by German researchers at the recent RSNA 2019 meeting.Read More
CT lung screening websites may be misleading patients December 12, 2019 -- As awareness of CT lung cancer screening programs continues to grow, improving the quality of relevant online information is an imperative next step, according to radiologists from Massachusetts. They uncovered major gaps in patient information in an evaluation of websites run by current screening programs.Read More
AI-cyberterrorism in radiology: Threat or red herring? December 12, 2019 -- In this Second Opinion article, Dr. Anton Becker, PhD, of Memorial Sloan Cancer Kettering Cancer in New York City and David Gugelmann, PhD, of Exeon Analytics assess the threat posed by artificial intelligence-powered cyberterrorism in radiology.Read More
AI-based model aids fMRI in ADHD detection December 11, 2019 -- A newly developed deep-learning artificial intelligence (AI) model is lending a helping hand to radiologists reading functional MRI (fMRI) scans, helping them better predict attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), according to a study published online December 11 in Radiology: Artificial Intelligence.Read More
Modern injector management: A new solution for resource constraints in radiology departments November 30, 2022 -- Driving to secondary sites or managing changes across multiple campuses, starting a shift early or staying late to avoid interrupting patient schedules -- these are the realities for most radiology departments that need to update protocols or adjust settings across multiple injectors. They need to physically touch each device. For a large hospital, standardizing protocols generally involves manually inputting the same changes across more than a dozen injectors.
Imagio OA/US Breast Imaging System launches at RSNA 2022 November 30, 2022 -- Seno Medical, makers of the Imagio Breast Imaging System -- a revolutionary new modality in breast imaging -- will officially launch the commercially available optoacoustic/ultrasound (OA/US) system at the RSNA scientific assembly and annual meeting starting November 27 through December 1 in Chicago (booth 6120).
