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.

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.”

Pregnancy-associated breast cancer (PABC) is rare, but aggressive. According to a recent study published in the American Journal of Roentgenology, breast MRI has a high sensitivity for PABC and changes the surgical management of PABC patients at a significant rate.

Implementing a reading room coordinator can improve radiologist satisfaction and help battle potential feelings of burnout, according to a recent case study published by the Journal of the American College of Radiology.

Limited-range CT exams performed from the top of L2 to the top of the pubic symphysis are as accurate as full-range CT in children with suspected appendicitis and reduces the radiation dose by 46 percent, according to a new study published in the American Journal of Roentgenology.

MRI connects genetic autism, structural abnormalities in brain

The duplication or deletion of a small piece of chromosome is one of the most common causes of genetic autism spectrum disorder. Researchers used MRI to examine 331 individuals to identify structural abnormalities in such brains.
