AR may boost efficiency of minimally invasive surgery
June 26, 2019 -- Researchers from the U.K. used an augmented reality (AR) headset to examine CT scans alongside an endoscopic video of patient anatomy while simulating minimally invasive surgery. The technology helped improve operating times and surgical proficiency in a new study, published online June 18 in Surgical Endoscopy.  Discuss
TRUS bests MRI for identifying prostate cancer
June 26, 2019 -- Combining ultrasound techniques on transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) better identifies prostate cancer than using these techniques alone -- and finds the disease more effectively than multiparametric MRI, according to a study published in the July issue of the Journal of Ultrasound in Medicine.  Discuss

Video from SNMMI 2019: Outreach needed to tell discipline's story
June 25, 2019 -- ANAHEIM, CA - More outreach is needed to explain the value of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging, according to Dr. Vasken Dilsizian, incoming president for the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) for the 2019-2020 term, in a video interview at this week's annual conference.  Discuss
Digital radiography may be leading to 'collimation creep'
June 25, 2019 -- Is the desire to produce "prettier" x-ray images leading to "collimation creep" as radiographers crop digital radiography images rather than use more appropriate collimation settings? That's the contention of a paper published in the June edition of the Journal of Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences.  Discuss
