Diagnostic Imaging

Tomoelastography combines tomography and elasticity, allowing researchers to diagram the spread of mechanical waves within the liver.

The researchers analyzed 39 consecutive patients with 44 pathologically confirmed cirrhotic nodules who first received a CEUS exam, followed by a traditional follow-up ultrasound every three or four months for their study.

A new startup—Hyperfine—and its visionary leader Jonathan Rothberg are creating a new, portable MRI machine they believe can revolutionize the way doctors think about the technology.

Using the quiet protocol reduced noise levels and improved imaging success rates compared to conventional MRI, according to authors of a new study published in Academic Radiology.

Researchers found measurements performed with their full-scale airway network flow model based on CT imaging data compared similarly to measurements derived from functional lung imaging. In addition to improving COPD analysis, the platform can help shed light on many forms of lung disease.

The CDC released interim guidance for clinicians to help with the evaluation and management of e-cigarette or vaping product use-associated lung injury, or EVALI.

A group of U.S. researchers analyzed literature on the topic, summarizing imaging findings to help radiologists identify signs of vaping-related lung injuries. The results were published Oct. 8 in the American Journal of Roentgenology.

The American College of Radiology released the contrast-specific LI-RADS system in response to the widespread use of the material in clinical practice. To date, however, few studies have analyzed its interreader agreement, and in those that have, results have been inconsistent.

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.

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 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.  

Experts have theorized that there is a direct relationship between an individual’s amount of physical activity and the development of changes in the shoulder or hip. A team of UK researchers sought to test this theory by comparing MRI findings from rugby players and ballet dancers to healthy participants, sharing their findings in Clinical Radiology.
