Quality

Radiologists and referring physicians prefer it when multipart CT scans are read by a single specialist instead of numerous subspecialists, according to new research published in the Journal of the American College of Radiology.

Researchers have developed a new technique, DeepPET, that uses deep learning to turn PET imaging data into high-quality images at a much faster rate than traditional methods. 

Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) technologies have the potential to dramatically change healthcare and could impact the practice of radiology in a number of ways.

Using digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) in addition to digital mammography (DM) can help providers identify additional lesions in patients with known breast cancers, according to a new study published in Radiology.

Breast cancer screening with digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) provides significant value to older women, according to a new study published in Radiology.

The combination of digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) and synthetic 2D mammography is as accurate as DBT and full-field digital mammography (FFDM), according to new findings published in the American Journal of Roentgenology. It also exposes the patient to much less radiation.

Training interventional radiologists how to perform endovascular thrombectomies is an effective way to improve patient care, according to research presented at the Society of Interventional Radiology’s 2019 Annual Scientific Meeting. 

A new noninvasive treatment can be used to treat the chronic condition commonly known as “tennis elbow,” according to research presented at the Society of Interventional Radiology’s 2019 Annual Scientific Meeting.

7T MRI scans of patients with focal epilepsy can provide valuable information missed by 3T scans, according to new research published in PLOS ONE.

Supplementing screening mammography with whole-breast ultrasound may not be worth the trouble, according to new findings published in JAMA Internal Medicine.

Increased background parenchymal enhancement (BPE) levels at breast MRI are associated with a greater risk of developing breast cancer within a year, according to new findings published in the American Journal of Roentgenology.

Implementing digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) leads to lower breast biopsy rates without having a negative impact on cancer detection, according to new findings published in Radiology.
