A fuller picture of the association between autism-related traits, inattention and measures of white matter organization, especially in the corpus callosum, is emerging as the result of new research. The investigators undertook their work because while the clinical overlap between autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has become increasingly apparent, little has been known about the brain mechanisms that underlie this overlap.

Boston Scientific received the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)’s approval for MRI conditional labeling of its Resonate implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD) and cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator (CRT-D) systems with HeartLogic Heart Failure Diagnostic.

Consultation services are becoming more and more important in radiology, but organizing an efficient system where someone is always available to answer questions is no easy task. Researchers developed a smartphone-based application that aims to make radiology consultation much simpler, detailing their experience in the Journal of the American College of Radiology.

Interpretation errors and communication failures are two of the largest issues that lead to malpractice claims in radiology, according to new research published in Diagnosis. Understanding ways to improve in these areas can help specialists “play a vital role in facilitating optimal patient care.”

Multicenter research studies, published collaborations between at least three medical centers, are becoming increasingly common in some healthcare specialties—but not radiology. A team of researchers explored this trend, surveying published academics about such studies, and published their findings in Academic Radiology.
