Canon Medical Systems USA has received FDA approval for its deep convolutional neural network (DCNN) image reconstruction technology for CT scanning.

“In a scenario where double reading at screening mammography is not available…we believe that the use of this model as a second reader could be beneficial,” wrote researchers in a new study published by Radiology.

Immuno-PET offers a more efficient diagnosis of inflammation in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) compared to traditional invasive methods, according to a new study published in the June issue of the Journal of Nuclear Medicine.

A culture of corruption allows giant companies like General Electric, Siemens, Philips and Toshiba to bribe Chinese government and hospital officials into purchasing expensive medical equipment, including imaging modalities, according to a lengthy piece published by the New York Times.

More than 25,000 radiologists are taking part in a 24 hour strike across Maharashtra—one of India’s largest states and home to its capital, Mumbai—in response to a recent assault on doctors in West Bengal, India.

Compressed sensing (CS) can reduce the typically long acquisition time of conventional ankle MRIs while preserving imaging quality, according to a small study published in the European Journal of Radiology.

You can find just about anything in an app store. Soon, that may include artificial intelligence applications for radiologists, as a recent Harvard Business Review article suggested.

Using an automated technique to quantify amyloid plaque on PET scans in a patient’s native space can improve the detection of brain amyloid accumulation compared to traditional methods, according to a recent study published in the Journal of Nuclear Medicine.

Artificial neural networks (ANNs) can help radiologists classify pure ground glass opacities (GGOs), according to a new study published in Clinical Imaging. But they shouldn't rely solely on AI-produced findings.

Coronary artery calcium (CAC) levels spotted on CT scans in middle-age patients were connected to an increased risk of structural heart abnormalities indicative of future heart failure, according to a new study published in Circulation: Cardiovascular Imaging.

 

Proponents of risk-based mammography screening claim the method successfully emphasizes its benefits and minimizes its harms, but new research has found it may not be as effective as age-based screening.

Cardiac MRI can detect cocaine’s impact on the cardiovascular system and help differentiate between a wide range of heart diseases, according to a new literature review study published in Radiology: Cardiothoracic Imaging.
