As a writer, I hate to admit it, but sometimes words get in the way. I decided to try a different approach to this week’s top imaging news and share a few numbers and images instead.
75% - CT screen-detected lung cancers categorized as aggressive
6 - Radiologists’ ranking among medical specialists in the number of closed malpractice claims in which they were defendants
3.4 – points (out of 100) separating the top- and bottom-ranked 1.5T MR systems
1/3 – ED providers with accurate knowledge of lifetime cancer risk attributable to commonly performed CT scans
98%- sensitivity of pediatric positive elbow ultrasound results for fracture
9 - Photos in Health Imaging’s One Last Look at RSNA 2012 slide show
If you have any numbers or images to share, please let me know.
