A combined deep learning method better detected hemorrhages and identified different subtypes of intracranial hemorrhage than single algorithms used alone, according to a new study published in the Journal of Digital Imaging.

Brain MRIs of young adults with above normal blood pressure revealed a higher risk of brain shrinkage than young adults with normal blood pressure, according to a study published online Jan. 23 in the journal Neurology

Non-gated chest CT with 256-detector row is more reliable for detecting and measuring coronary artery calcification (CAC) compared to dedicated calcium scoring CT (CSCT), reported authors of a Jan. 23 study published in Academic Radiology.

Implementing a quality improvement initiative in a radiology department can enhance overall patient experience, identify opportunities for improvement in the department and address the effectiveness of interventions aimed to mend gaps in patient care, according to research published in Radiology.  

A novel MRI approach developed by researchers from Austria showed promise for non-invasively measuring hypoxia and neovascularization in breast tumors, according to a Jan. 24 article published by Physicsworld.

A free lung cancer screening program using National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines detected more cancers and ultimately generated profit for the institution conducting the screenings, according to a single-center study published in The Annals of Thoracic Surgery.

Researchers at Boston University in Massachusetts have developed an imaging technique that, by using a photograph captured with a digital camera, can reconstruct the position of an opaque object and its surroundings when both are out of direct sight, according to a recent report by Nature

A recent survey conducted by the American Society of Radiation Technologists (ASRT) found a small increase in the number of students enrolled in radiography and nuclear medicine programs, with the largest enrollment gains seen in radiation therapy programs.

German researchers found approximately 95 percent of head CT scans of patients wearing eye protectors during an exam showed image artifacts, according to research published online Jan. 15 in the American Journal of Roentgenology. In almost a quarter of cases the eye lens was improperly positioned.

A new wider MRI machine at OSF Center for Health in Peoria, Illinois has taken some of the anxiety out of the exam experience, but the center’s new suite is making an even larger impact, according to a recent report by the Journal Star.

A test that measures changes in a patients’ blood protein levels through blood samples, brain imaging and cognitive tests could detect Alzheimer's up to 16 years before symptoms appear, according to new research published online in Nature Medicine.

Previously established frameworks for creating breast cancer screening bundled payment models are achievable, according to a new study published in the Journal of the American College of Radiology. The approaches could also incorporate the rise of digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT).
