California nuclear medicine experts said the technology will ultimately become part of routine staging for the disease, publishing their study findings in JAMA Oncology.

University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center experts believe the differences could have an impact on cancer detection.

Miami Cancer Institute experts found the technique "significantly" prolonged overall survival, sharing their findings at the European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology 2021 conference.

Radiologists combined 10 key radiomic features with other clinical information to predict which patients were expected to survive more than three years.

Ideally, clinicians could weigh the pros and cons for each exam, but time is typically at a premium for radiology departments flooded with prostate scan requests.

The use of active surveillance—imaging, PSA testing, etc.—increased overall but many patients are still opting to undergo surgery, radiation or therapy.

CT scans performed at 5 months, instead of 6, for probably benign nodules can save lives and lower combined LDCTs, researchers reported.

Those who arrived at ground zero within about 2 weeks of the attacks showed more evidence of disease on their scans, Mount Sinai researchers reported.

"This brings supplemental screening MRI for women with dense breasts one step closer to implementation," researchers remarked recently.

Swedish researchers also reduced biopsies by 50% and plan to share "exciting" results related to the method's cost-effectiveness soon.

18F-FET PET/MR also changed providers' clinical management plans in more than 30% of cases, experts reported recently.

Deep learning-based algorithms can serve as a second reader to limit variability in PI-RADS assessments, researchers reported in the European Journal of Radiology.

Two different companies announced that they are recalling all lots of the medication. 

CardioSmart, an online resource for both patients and clinicians, has a new editor. 

The funding includes $8.5 billion in American Rescue Plan resources for providers who treat Medicaid, Children's Health Insurance Program and Medicare patients.
