The research team also found combining 4D CT and technetium-99m sestamibi SPECT/CT did not improve diagnostic performance compared to 4D CT alone.

The American College of Radiology (ACR) and American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) released a joint statement Monday, March 5, to quell potential fears sparked by a recent research letter investigating the presence of radioactive materials in cremated bodies.

Individual language is significantly impacted by what we hear, and a team of researchers from New York University used various imaging methods to determine that our brain’s pathways play a central role in speech development.

The researchers believe their algorithm could help pathologists classify the histologic patterns of lung adenocarcinoma—the most common form of the disease—and potentially lead to more accurate staging.

The American College of Radiology (ACR) is asking for comments to be submitted by April 15.

Olivia Mueller is one of 14 kids who have received a 3D-printed model of their own brain as a thank you for participating in an MRI study at the University of Calgary in Alberta, Canada, according to a story from the university.

Educating radiologists on ACR-recommended follow-up for incidental adnexal lesions and incorporating such guidelines into normal workflow significantly improved the rate of adherence, reported authors of a Feb. 26 study published in the American Journal of Roentgenology.

The sensors, detailed in a study published online March 1 in Science, provide data as accurate as that from traditional, and often wire-heavy monitoring systems. They also have adhesives that are gentler on a newborn’s skin and allow for more physical bonding between the baby and parent.   

Patients diagnosed with colorectal cancer prior to turning 50 were often misdiagnosed, which may result in a diagnosis at more advanced stages of the disease, according to the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR).  

Google and its sister company Verily announced on Monday, Feb. 25, the development of an AI-based algorithm that can screen eye imaging exams for diabetic retinopathy and diabetic macular edema—two of the leading causes of preventable blindness in adults with diabetes, according to a recent report by CNBC.  

“Our results show that worklists organized by relative individual interpretation times can decrease the overall group interpretation time in a multireader setting,” wrote authors of a Feb. 26 study published in the the American Journal of Roentgenology.

DBT also identified more cancers and lowered recall rates in patients of all ages and breast density types.
