Utilizing the ultrafast scan mode for CT imaging in the emergency department (ED) can significantly reduce motion artifacts, reported a team of Japan-based researchers in a study published by the American Journal of Roentgenology.

“The risk of malpractice within the specialty is real, and in some respect, inevitable for most of us,” wrote Jonathan L. Mezrich, MD, in a new piece published by the American Journal of Roentgenology.

“Factors driving the lack of gender, racial, and ethnic diversity in radiology and radiation oncology are poorly understood,” wrote Pari V. Pandharipande, MD, MPH, Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, and colleagues in a recent JACR study.

Recent research has found studies with better diagnostic test accuracy get published quicker, but does that correlation apply to abstracts presented at the RSNA Annual Meeting?

“To our knowledge, this is the first study analyzing the influence of reading volume on reading performance in a screening program that uses independent double reading of digital mammograms with consensus,” wrote authors of a new study published in Radiology.

Raul Galvez, MD, is a pediatric radiologist at Banner Thunderbird Medical Center in Phoenix and has seen his fair share of out-of-the-ordinary x-rays while working at the level 1 trauma center.

"...to our knowledge, no studies of nationally representative data have explored racial and ethnic differences in ED medical imaging while accounting for patient-level factors and facility-level differences in imaging use,” wrote authors of a recent JACR study.

The method spared nearly 90% of patients from unnecessary contrast and additional imaging sequences, reported authors of a May 16 study published in the Journal of the American College of Radiology.

The tool, ultralow radiation imaging coupled with image enhancement and instrument tracking (ULR-IE/IT), reduced the total time to localize an instrument by more than 30% and cut radiation exposure by more than 90% compared to C-arm fluoroscopy.

“To our knowledge, no study has examined how changes in categorization of calcification from the 4th to the 5th edition of BI-RADS have affected positive predictive values (PPVs)," wrote authors of a recent study published in the American Journal of Roentgenology.

Researchers found an “abrupt and substantial” decline in the national radiologist workforce 30 years after residency, according to a new study published in Academic Radiology. They also investigated the post-residency practice patterns of readers.

The police released video surveillance footage of the break-in along with descriptions of the individuals. As of now, there aren’t many answers as to what happened, NBC 10 Philadelphia reported.
