Standardizing protocols for preclinical PET/CT imaging can help translate research findings to the clinical setting, according to a study published Sept. 27 in the Journal of Nuclear Medicine.

Xiang Li, PhD, with Massachusetts General Hospital’s Department of Radiology, and colleagues showed their platform could identify pneumothorax when tested on scans with and without the condition, doing so in less than three minutes per scan.

“I’m both honored and humbled to serve as editor of our specialty’s leading educational publication,” said Christine O. (Cooky) Menias, MD, the new editor of RadioGraphics.

Radiology departments can integrate a new algorithm into their workflow that automatically calculates total lung capacity (TLC) from CT images, reported authors of a new study published in Clinical Radiology.

A new magnetic “seed” technology can help radiologists localize breast lesions and offers benefits over traditional wire-guided localization (WGL), reported authors of a study published Oct. 3 in the European Journal of Radiology.

Pennsylvania (PA) Act 112, requires imaging facilities in the state to notify patients of abnormal imaging results. Authors of a Sept. 28 case study published in the Journal of the American College of Radiology examined what this law does and how health systems are responding.

Academic radiology departments vary in how they handle second opinion consultations on outside studies, according to new research published in the American Journal of Roentgenology. A more uniform approach, the researchers argued, could help radiologists and patients alike.

The researchers found features were so highly affected by CT acquisition and reconstruction settings that a majority were “nonreproducible.”

An algorithm designed to unfold MRI scans of the placenta may allow doctors to more accurately identify and treat issues with the organ during pregnancy, according to new research out of MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory.

A new AI platform takes a mere 10 seconds to identify key findings on a patient’s chest x-ray, compared to the 20 minutes typically required.

Forty-three members of Congress have signed a letter addressed to CMS Administrator Seema Verma, asking the administration to delay the proposed cuts to myocardial PET scans.

A new high-performance, low magnetic-field MRI system developed, in part, by researchers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) can produce higher-quality images of the lungs and heart and may be safer for patients with implanted devices.
