A recent study validating the 2017 version of the ultrasound Liver Imaging Reporting and Data System (US LI-RADS) for detecting hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) identified a few limitations in its scoring.
The American College of Radiology (ACR) Thyroid Imaging Reporting and Data System (TI-RADS) was originally created to improve patient management and avoid unnecessary fine needle aspiration biopsy in patients with thyroid nodules. However, its clinical use is still questioned.
Cardiac MRI can detect cocaine’s impact on the cardiovascular system and help differentiate between a wide range of heart diseases, according to a new literature review study published in Radiology: Cardiothoracic Imaging.
Fractional flow reserve derived from CT (FFR-CT) is a superior predictor of long-term outcomes of heart disease compared to traditional coronary CT angiography (CCTA), according to a new study published in Radiology.
It can be hard for physicians to identify the damaged artery responsible for a non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI). Typically coronary angiography is the first choice, but is it the best?
Deep learning designed to read single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) can improve the diagnosis of coronary artery disease—a killer of more than 370,000 people in the U.S. annually.
Enhanced dual-source dual-energy CT (DECT) can help differentiate invasive adenocarcinomas from preinvasive lesions which appear as pure ground-glass nodules (pGGNs), according to a small study published in the American Journal of Roentgenology.
