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.

MRI can help diagnose minor stroke and transient ischemic attacks (TIA) in patients who experience symptoms that aren’t always associated with stroke, according to a multi-year study published Sept. 23 in JAMA Neurology.

New research out of the University of Colorado School of Medicine has shown that “fast MRI” can effectively identify traumatic brain injuries in kids—a good alternative to CT scanning.

MRI can predict the severity of one of the most frequent tumors of the central nervous system, according to a recent study published in Clinical Radiology. Researchers believe it may help tailor a patient’s management plan.

Exposure to diagnostic low-dose ionizing radiation is associated with an increased risk of developing cancer among pediatric patients, according to a recent study published in JAMA Network Open.

New research published in the New England Journal of Medicine has linked e-cigarette use to a cluster of respiratory illness cases identified on CT scans. The results add to the growing concern that vaping may cause lung damage, an idea manufacturers of vaping products have downplayed.

Trenton T. Kellock, MD, with Royal Inland Hospital’s Department of Medical Imaging in British Columbia, Canada, and colleagues performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of studies including more than 1,200 patients.

A novel blood test can identify mild traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) that don’t exhibit normal concussive symptoms on CT scans, according to new research published Aug. 23 in The Lancet Neurology.

Enhanced dual-energy CT (DE-CT) can help distinguish lung squamous cell carcinoma from adenocarcinoma, reported authors of a new study published in Academic Radiology.
