The technology can capture three-dimensional (3D) images of the entire human body at one bed position and requires 40-times less radiation than current methods, according to a recent press release.

The Vancouver risk calculator (VRC) offers superior guidance for predicting the risk of malignancy in patients receiving CT lung cancer screening compared to the American College of Radiology Lung Imaging Reporting and Data System (Lung-RADS), according to a new study.

Four-dimensional (4D) MRI with dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) sequencing is a reliable method for localizing parathyroid lesions, reported authors of a single-center study published in the European Journal of Radiology.

"In taking these new steps today, we’re reaffirming our commitment to continually strengthening our review process, so that it can continue to serve and protect American patients well for years to come,” wrote FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, MD, and Jeff Shuren, MD, director of the FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH), in a recent statement.

There’s been plenty of hype around the potential of artificial intelligence (AI) to ease radiology workloads. And a new convolutional neural network approach detailed in a Jan. 22 study greatly reduced reporting backlog by accurately triaging chest x-rays in real-time.

On Jan. 6, medical imaging and three-dimensional (3D) printing went above and beyond when Eduardo Rodriguez, MD, a plastic surgeon and face transplant specialist at NYU Langone Medical Center in New York City, used the technologies to help him perform his third face transplant surgery, according to a recent report by Popular Science.

The American Society of Echocardiography has released new guidelines for performing a comprehensive transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) examination. The recommendations, which were endorsed by 22 other cardiology/echocardiography societies from around the world, were published in the January edition of the Journal of the American Society of Echocardiography.

Implementing three-dimensional (3D) digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) with standard digital mammography (DM) can reduce the number of patients committed to short-term follow-up screening, according to research published online Jan. 19 in Academic Radiology.

The Medical Imaging & Technology Alliance (MITA) announced that Dennis Durmis, senior vice president of Bayer Radiology, Americas region, will be the next chair of its Board of Directors.

Pairing breast MRI with a test that characterizes breast cancer genes can lead to a more personalized treatment approach for patients with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), reported authors of a recent study published in JAMA Oncology.

Although Variant 3 of the American College of Radiology (ACR) Appropriateness Criteria recommends performing non-contrast head CT (NCCT) on patients with sudden severe headache who do not present other high-risk features, researchers from Johns Hopkins Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland found that performing emergency department (ED) NCCT scans on these patents has little value.

When it comes to follow-up imaging, location matters. That’s what authors of a new study found after comparing patient locations during initial imaging with the likelihood they came back for follow-up imaging.
