Video from RSNA 2018: What do we know about gadolinium deposition?
November 26, 2018 -- CHICAGO - New findings are coming out on almost a weekly basis about trace elements of gadolinium left in human tissue after scans with MRI contrast agents. What do we know about this phenomenon, and how serious is it? We talk to Dr. Robert McDonald, PhD, of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN.  Discuss
Video from RSNA 2018: Dr. Paul Chang on AI and radiology
November 26, 2018 -- CHICAGO - In what's become an annual tradition, we talk to Dr. Paul Chang of the University of Chicago for his opinions on the changing relationship between artificial intelligence and radiology.  Discuss
Burnout is real, but it can be mitigated
November 26, 2018 -- CHICAGO - Radiologist burnout is real, but there are simple ways to ease it, according to a talk given on Monday at the annual RSNA meeting. Small interventions can make a huge difference in the amount of stress a radiologist experiences.  Discuss
MRI shows promise for lung cancer screening
November 26, 2018 -- CHICAGO - Nearly a decade ago, CT surpassed x-ray as the imaging modality of choice for lung cancer screening. But could there be an even better option for the test? Researchers from the U.S., Switzerland, and Germany made the case for MRI in a Monday presentation at RSNA 2018.  Discuss
Philips shows new MRI, AI technologies at RSNA 2018
November 26, 2018 -- CHICAGO - Philips Healthcare is launching a variety of new imaging technologies at this week's RSNA 2018 meeting, including an MRI scanner that dramatically cuts helium use and an updated platform designed to foster the development of artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms.  Discuss
CEDM reduces biopsies of benign breast lesions
November 26, 2018 -- CHICAGO - Contrast enhanced digital mammography (CEDM) can reduce biopsies of benign breast lesions, according to research presented on Sunday at the RSNA 2018 meeting.  Discuss
AI may help in fight against gadolinium deposition
November 26, 2018 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm could enable diagnostic-quality MR images to be produced using a fraction of the typical dose of a gadolinium-based contrast agent, according to research presented on Monday at RSNA 2018 in Chicago.  Discuss
Head impacts alter brains of young football players
November 26, 2018 -- High-level head impacts during just one season of football for high school and younger players can disrupt the brain's process of "pruning" synapses in gray matter; this disruption can subsequently interrupt brain development, according to a study presented on Monday at RSNA 2018.  Discuss
Cardiac PET helps assess revascularization benefits
November 26, 2018 -- CHICAGO - By performing myocardial perfusion imaging with cardiac FDG-PET before revascularization, clinicians can better assess the benefits of that procedure and predict near-term outcomes for patients with coronary artery disease and left ventricular dysfunction, according to a study presented on Sunday at RSNA 2018.  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.
October 30, 2018 -- Attendees of this year's RSNA meeting in Chicago will encounter a variety of studies on women's imaging topics, such as how digital breast tomosynthesis works in women with different backgrounds and types of breast tissue, ultrasound's role in breast cancer screening, the benefits of contrast-enhanced digital mammography, and how artificial intelligence can improve or enhance breast imaging.
October 29, 2018 -- Welcome to the first installment of this year's Road to RSNA preview of the RSNA 2018 meeting in Chicago.
