Radiology-pathology report pairing can provide potential opportunities for learning and improved accuracy when matched by organ systems, according to a new article published in Academic Radiology.

Research into health disparities has seen significant growth in the last few decades, and academic radiologists have been a part of that trend. But how can these specialists track disparities in imaging utilization if they don’t have the right data?

Pediatric body CT exams are on the rise in the United States, especially among older children, according to a new analysis of data from the American College of Radiology (ACR) CT Dose Index Registry (DIR). The authors used the data to break down various demographics of common pediatric body CT exams, publishing their findings in the American Journal of Roentgenology.

It is increasingly important for radiologists to provide care centered on patients and their families. In an article published in the Journal of the American College of Radiology, numerous specialists discussed their perspectives on how to best provide patient- and family-centered care (PFCC).

A lay-language glossary may help patients better understand their radiology reports, according to a new study published in the Journal of the American College of Radiology.

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.

Veteran researchers share the benefits, challenges of multicenter radiology research

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.

Northeast boasts most radiology residents, greatest job shortages

New research in the Journal of the American College of Radiology suggests the Northeastern United States has the highest per capita number of radiology residents, despite being the region most affected by job shortages.

Progress through teamwork: 2 key collaborations between radiologists, scientists

Collaborating with various scientific disciplines has been essential for radiology’s growth over the years, according to a recent analysis published in Academic Radiology. Without the specialty reaching out and working with scientists in these other fields, it’s hard to imagine radiology as we know it today even existing.
