Women's Imaging


A new study published in the January issue of the Journal of Ultrasound in Medicine has shown that a 3D Doppler ultrasound can more accurately determine altered fetal growth restriction (FGR) in fetuses vulnerable to developing abnormal cerebral vascular flow patterns than a standard 2D Doppler ultrasound.  

Breast cancer mortality rates in the U.S. have decreased by roughly 50 percent from 2000 to 2012, according to a new stimulation modeling study released online Jan. 9 by JAMA.

A Children’s National Health System team has found velocity-selective arterial spin labeling (VSASL), an advanced MRI technology, can detect early signs of global placental perfusion in pregnancies complicated by fetal congenital heart disease (CHD).

The American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) developed a task force to develop a standardized consensus-based curriculum and competency assessment tools for OB-GYN ultrasounds, with the aim they would be used in residency programs.

Researchers, investigating how community practices are following breast cancer screening guidelines, found that high-risk individuals, especially those with a family history of the disease, were not receiving additional MRI scans to help in early detection.
