AI could thwart -- and enable -- imaging cyberattacks
November 27, 2018 -- Artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms may help prevent cyberattacks on medical imaging equipment, but they could also be used to alter images in a manner that would be difficult for radiologists to detect, according to research being presented this week at RSNA 2018 in Chicago.  Discuss
MEG might be new way to evaluate concussions
November 27, 2018 -- CHICAGO - Could magnetoencephalography (MEG) become radiology's new weapon in its arsenal to evaluate the effects of concussions? MEG's measurement of delta-wave changes could become a key biomarker after a head injury, according to a study presented on Monday at RSNA 2018.  Discuss

How Denmark strives for quality in breast screening
November 27, 2018 -- Multidisciplinary teamwork, high-volume readers, training and audits, and continuous monitoring of quality are vital in breast cancer screening, according to Dr. Ilse Vejborg, a speaker at Tuesday's RSNA 2018 session on the Nordic countries. Her group also works hard to avoid potential harms from overdiagnosis and unnecessary intervention.  Discuss
CT-guided pulsed radiofrequency provides back pain relief
November 27, 2018 -- CT-guided pulsed radiofrequency, which applies pulses of energy directly to nerve roots, may be an effective method for alleviating lower back pain for cases when more conservative treatment options fail to do so, according to a Tuesday presentation at RSNA 2018 in Chicago.  Discuss
RSNA 2018 Scientific & Educational Presentations
November 8, 2018 -- Our final destination on the Road to RSNA is imaging informatics, and specifically PACS, cybersecurity, structured reporting, clinical decision support, radiation dose-monitoring software, analytics, and issues regarding patient access to radiology results.
November 7, 2018 -- Key presentations at RSNA 2018 will discuss how artificial intelligence is helping clinicians in a variety of uses for digital x-ray, from improving dose calculations and analyzing suspicious lung nodules to hastening imaging exams and the care of patients in emergency rooms.
November 6, 2018 -- The integration of advanced visualization tools into healthcare has grown exponentially in recent years. At RSNA 2018, researchers will describe the various clinical applications of tools such as virtual and augmented reality, 3D printing, and cinematic rendering in dozens of workshops, presentations, and refresher courses.
November 5, 2018 -- RSNA 2018 will highlight the new ways ultrasound is changing clinical practice. Hot topics at year's RSNA meeting include the use of contrast-enhanced ultrasound and MR-guided focused ultrasound to diagnose different diseases, as well as the application of artificial intelligence in ultrasound imaging.
November 1, 2018 -- The scientific presentations focusing on CT at this year's RSNA conference speak to the modality's impressive resilience and continued development. Artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms, computer-aided detection (CAD), and updated protocols that are helping to reduce radiation dose, as well as the results from early studies of ultrahigh-resolution CT scanners, will be key topics discussed at the meeting.
October 31, 2018 -- Our Road to RSNA preview for the RSNA 2018 meeting in Chicago continues with MRI. Presentations at this year's conference will feature a range of hot topics, including artificial intelligence's impact on the modality, the issue of gadolinium-based contrast agents and also viable alternatives such as ferumoxytol, and PET/MRI's utilization in an increasing number of clinical applications.
