Diffusion kurtosis imaging could reduce unnecessary breast biopsies and expand treatment options, according to a recent release from the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA).  

According to a study recently published in the American Journal of Roentgenology (AJR), researchers from Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston and the Lehigh Valley Health Network in Allentown, Pennsylvania, have found that unilateral nonhemorrhagic adrenal infarction may be uncommon in pregnant women who have experienced acute abdominal or flank pain.

For the last 10 years, researchers from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center have been compiling examples of when breast MRI may be helpful for male patients, according to a study published online Jan. 10 in Diagnostic Radiology.  

According to a new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), researchers found that increased depth in prenatal ultrasound exams has no associatation with late diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD).  

False-positive stereotactic vacuum-assisted breast biopsies (SVABs) may not negatively affect subsequent mammographic screenings, according to a recent study published in the Journal of the American College of Radiology (JACR). The harms of false-positives, according to reserachers from the Center for Biomedical Imaging at New York University School of Medicine, may be exaggerated.
