Teens aren’t going to like this: Neuro MRI has helped researchers accurately predict which young persons are likely to become heavy drinkers by the time they turn 18. If readily replicable, the work may suggest modes of pre-problem intervention.

Maintaining a rigorous log of patient gadolinium dosage should be a priority for radiology departments and imaging centers, according to Hans-Klaus Goischke, Dr. med.

Molecular breast imaging (MBI) has proven a useful secondary screening tool for women with dense breasts when routinely deployed at a large, community-based breast imaging center. 

Incidental and secondary findings are on the rise, thanks largely to advances in diagnostic technologies and adoptions of value-based practice incentives. As such findings increasingly confound patients as well as clinicians—not to mention medical ethicists and malpractice courts—radiology would do well to follow discussions going on in the field of genetic testing. 

Neuroscience researchers and clinicians at UCLA have used MR-guided ultrasound to help rouse a recovering coma patient to a more alert state of consciousness.
