Recent updates to search engines such as Google and Bing may expose imaging data previously thought to be anonymous, ACR, RSNA and SIIM warned. 

University of Cincinnati Health has deployed a data-driven, team-based approach to resuming nonurgent radiology services after it sustained a “sharp,” systemwide decrease in the spring. 

Mid-Delaware Imaging said it first became aware of the incident earlier this year, with leaders recently notifying the FBI.

“Federated learning,” as it’s called, works by training an algorithm across multiple data servers, without exchanging any images, experts detailed in Scientific Reports. 

Researchers recently conducted a retrospective investigation of some 500 scans, seeking signals of how to limit use of such drugs among patients under 18. 

That’s according to the results of a recent survey conducted at one private Colorado imaging practice, highlighted in the American Journal of Roentgenology. 

Customers have not reported any instances of hackers using this weakness to affect clinical care, the Amsterdam-based imaging giant said. 

It says more than 200 healthcare institutions across the globe have now expressed interest in participating, with “substantial” datasets already added to the repository. 

When a child shows up at the emergency department with a traumatic brain injury, the encounter can often result in a costly head CT scan that provides little benefit to the patient, experts wrote Tuesday in JACR. 

That’s according to a new survey of various clinician types, published recently in the Annals of the American Thoracic Society. 

Others have previously designed such reporting and data systems, but those do not specifically address radiology department workflows, Brigham and Women's experts wrote in JACR

That’s according to a new survey of almost 30,000 consumers, led by Harvard Medical School and published in JAMA Network Open

The college praised the recent reimbursement decision but noted many of its recommendations have yet to be incorporated into the national coverage determination draft document.

Early experiments showed the saponin/TLR adjuvant activates many different parts of the immune system to strengthen its response against invading pathogens.

The advanced algorithm could make a significant impact on shared decision-making.
