Diets high in foods with potential to cause inflammation—including processed meat, red meat, fish and refined grains—are associated with an increased risk of developing colorectal cancer, according to a new study published in JAMA Oncology.

There are thousands of interventional radiologist (IR) practicing throughout the United States, but if you ask a room full of IRs to define their role in medical imaging, you may get several different answers. To better understand the work patterns of IRs, researchers studied public datasets from CMS and the U.S. Census Bureau, publishing their results in the American Journal of Roentgenology.

Researchers from Michigan State University (MSU) in East Lansing plan to use fMRI scans to investigate brain movements that may be related to psychosis. The research is funded by a $1.5 million, four-year grant from the National Institutes of Health.

Radiology residence training is trending toward a 24-hour coverage model with an accompanying attending practitioner to eliminate resident-attending discrepancies, which are often thought to lead to management changes. A new Academic Radiology study found a quantifiable clinical impact.

Consuming as little as four grams of processed meat can increase breast cancer risk by 15 percent.

4 guidelines for transitioning from peer review to peer learning

More and more radiology departments and imaging facilities are moving from peer review to peer learning to educate radiologists as part of a collaborative, continuous learning model. Peer learning is seen as a more constructive, supportive way of looking at errors than peer review, which critics suggest can make colleagues feel shameful and unsupported.
