A streamlined database detailing protocol for scanning patients with a variety of implanted devices could be changing radiologists’ efficiency and confidence for the better, according to research out of Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, New York.
A novel CT marker known as the “egg-and-banana sign” is aiding in the diagnosis of pulmonary hypertension (PH), an infamously hard-to-detect condition that affects hundreds of thousands of U.S. patients each year.
The National Football League (NFL) has named Nicholas Theodore, MD, Donlin M. Long Professor of Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Medicine in Baltimore, the chairman of its NFL Head, Neck and Spine Committee.
Machine learning might be the next step in predicting patient wait times and appointment delays—factors crucial to healthcare’s quadruple aim and its emphasis on quality of care—in radiology practices, researchers have reported in the Journal of the American College of Radiology.
Thanks to contributions from more than 400 donors and support from the Ascension Wisconsin health system, Ascension St. Michael’s Hospital in Stevens Point, Wisconsin, will be opening a new Breast Care Center later this year.
CT colonography (CTC) is an effective, efficient test for senior-age patients with and without symptoms of colorectal cancer (CRC), according to a new study published in the American Journal of Roentgenology.
A robotic needle-placement system outfitted with correction software to improve its accuracy in mechanizing computed tomography (CT)-guided needle placement, according to a study published ahead of print in the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology.
Diagnosing the source of lower back pain is notoriously difficult for physicians—current methods have been criticized as ineffective, inaccurate and unreliable—but a combined decision-making approach could help identify the problem with greater certainty and less fuss, researchers wrote in PLOS ONE this month.
The same week British Columbia Health Minister Adrian Dix pledged $11 million to expand MRI usage across the Canadian province, the Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technologies in Health (CADTH) released its medical imaging inventory report for 2017, noting a 65 percent increase in MRI units in the past decade.
Patient care would improve if more interventional radiologists implemented endoscopy into routine practice, according to a new analysis published in Current Problems in Diagnostic Radiology. Should more imaging leaders be working to offer these services?
It is common for cancer survivors to fear their cancer could return or progress at any time, and it's a feeling that takes a significant toll on both patients and their loved ones. According to a new commentary published in the American Journal of Roentgenology, this is an aspect of patient care that radiologists and radiology personnel don’t always spend enough time considering.
Though guidelines dictate a standard set of radiographic projections that should be collected in each case when a child presents to a hospital with suspected physical abuse, an update suggests a more fragmented method of imaging that could ultimately slash time and radiation exposure.
