Conn. 'experiment': Ultrasound keeps finding cancers in dense tissue
Photoacoustic US works as well as MR thermal imaging for head/neck cancer
Sunday, November 30 | 11:05 a.m.-11:15 a.m. | SSA01-03 | Arie Crown Theater
Four years after breast density notification legislation was enacted in Connecticut, the addition of screening breast ultrasound for women with dense tissue has continued to improve breast cancer detection compared with mammography alone, according to research to be presented on Sunday.
O-mode ultrasound reduces artifacts
Sunday, November 30 | 11:45 a.m.-11:55 a.m. | SSA21-07 | Room S405AB

US works as well as MR, MRA for evaluating rotator cuff tears
Sunday, November 30 | 1:00 p.m.-1:30 p.m. | MKS348 | Lakeside Learning Center
Musculoskeletal ultrasound of the foot and ankle can play an important role in clinical decision-making -- offering a cost-effective and readily available alternative to MR, concluded researchers from the Cleveland Clinic.
Ultrasound tops x-ray for diagnosing, staging rheumatoid arthritis
Tuesday, December 2 | 9:05 a.m.-9:15 a.m. | VSMK31-03 | Room E450A
Ultrasound, MR, and MR arthrography (MRA) are all accurate ways to assess recurrent rotator cuff tears, according to clinical findings to be presented by University of Michigan researchers.
Ultrasound comparable to CT for bone lesion sampling
Tuesday, December 2 | 11:00 a.m.-11:10 a.m. | VSMK31-10 | Room E450A
Ultrasound is a reliable technique for diagnosing and staging rheumatoid arthritis, and it can detect more erosions than x-ray, researchers from Tunisia have found.
Supersonic shear imaging helps assess Achilles tendon changes
Tuesday, December 2 | 10:00 a.m.-10:10 a.m. | VSMK31-07 | Room E450A
Ultrasound and CT show comparable diagnostic accuracy for sampling bone lesions, according to research to be presented during this Tuesday morning session.
Breast US after negative mammo spot views causes more harm than good
Tuesday, December 2 | 11:10 a.m.-11:20 a.m. | VSMK31-11 | Room E450A
Supersonic shear imaging has the potential to characterize changes in the Achilles tendon brought on by aging and disease, and it could perhaps decrease the risk of injury, according to this presentation to be given on Tuesday.
MR-guided transurethral US ablation viable for treating prostate cancer
Wednesday, December 3 | 3:20 p.m.-3:30 p.m. | SSM01-03 | Arie Crown Theater
In this presentation, Canadian researchers will discuss how using breast ultrasound for further assessment after negative mammography spot views can cause more harm than good.
Contrast ultrasound beats CT, MR for resolution of renal lesions
Thursday, December 4 | 10:40 a.m.-10:50 a.m. | SSQ10-02 | Room E450B
MR-guided transurethral ultrasound ablation is a feasible, minimally invasive, and safe way to treat organ-confined prostate cancer, according to research to be presented on Thursday.
Ultrasound-guided transvaginal core biopsy safe for patients
Thursday, December 4 | 11:20 a.m.-11:30 a.m. | SSQ09-06 | Room E353B
Contrast-enhanced ultrasound offers improved contrast resolution of renal lesions compared with CT and MR, and it may help clinicians better categorize lesions, according to this study from Australia.
