Spectral CT with iodine mapping helps differentiate benign pleural metastatic tumors from cancerous lesions, reported authors of a Radiology study. The iodine overlays particularly helped less-experienced radiologists.

Compared to microwave ablation (MWA), radiofrequency ablation (RFA) achieved better overall survival rates (OS) in lung cancer patients, according to a recent study conducted in China. Both were found to be effective and safe treatment methods.

A new article published in Radiology explores the barriers patients face in undergoing lung cancer screening (LCS), and more importantly, what radiologists can do to encourage their participation.

Overall cancer deaths in the United States have steadily declined by 27 percent over the past quarter century, according to a new review from the American Cancer Society (ACS).

New research suggests the percentage of women who undergo cervical cancer screenings is much lower than national data has reported, according to a Mayo Clinic study published in the Journal of Women’s Health.

Incorporating the golden-angle radial sparse parallel (GRASP) technique into dynamic contrast agent-enhanced (DCE) MRI improves the performance of prostate MRI, according to a Jan. 1 study published in Radiology.

Researchers out of the University of Surrey in the U.K. created an artificial intelligence (AI) platform that can predict which cancer patients are most at risk for experiencing common symptoms associated with the disease.

For patients who undergo weight loss treatments for obesity, a specialized MRI sequence called quantitative chemical shift encoded MRI (CSE-MRI) may provide a safe and noninvasive way to monitor liver fat levels and the success of treatments, according to new research published online Dec. 18 in Radiology.

The project, called the Phantom Project or Marie, will test radiation exposure on the personalized, full-body phantom to determine the best angle for radiation dose distribution before real-life application and may help personalize cancer treatment for patients of varying body types, according to a recent Louisiana State University (LSU) news release.

Revamped guidelines on screening for breast cancer promote shared decision-making between women and their doctors. The new instructions were released by the Canadian Task Force on Preventative Health Care and published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal.

A new study published Dec. 7 in JAMA Network Open found that 29 percent of veterans who underwent recommended colonoscopy screening did not want to stop getting screened despite limited personal benefits.

Cryoablation—commonly called cryotherapy—demonstrated early effectiveness in treating women with low-risk breast cancer, reported researchers during a Nov. 29 session at RSNA’s 2018 Annual Meeting.
