The world’s ongoing helium shortage made a lot of headlines after Party City announced it was closing down 45 stores by the end of 2019. What kind of impact could the deflating availability of this important element have on imaging providers?

Breast MRI screening should be “strongly considered” for women with a personal history of breast cancer or high-risk lesions, according to new research published in Radiology.

Short-interval follow-up MRI is an effective tool for identifying early-stage breast cancer, according to findings to be presented at the American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS) 2019 Annual Meeting in Honolulu.

Time is brain, as the famous saying goes, when treating acute stroke patients. And radiologists can often save time for those patients by reading their imaging studies on mobile devices—smartphones or laptop computers, for instance—instead of a traditional workstation.

Providers should turn to ultrasound first, not mammography, when imaging palpable lumps after a mastectomy, according to new findings published in the American Journal of Roentgenology.

Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) is an effective long-term treatment option for patients with malignant neuroendocrine tumors, according to a 12-year clinical study published in the Journal of Nuclear Medicine.

Patients with screening-detected ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) who were screened with mammography and ultrasound (US) have similar disease-free survival (DFS) rates, according to a new study published in Radiology.

Researchers have determined that coronary artery wall thickness, as documented by cardiac MRI scans, is associated with heart disease in women. The team shared its findings in the debut issue of Radiology: Cardiothoracic Imaging.

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.
