Analysis of imaging performed immediately following the Boston Marathon bombings allowed researchers to improve the emergency response system.

Using an algorithm with CT colonography allows radiologists to recognize previously identified polyps.

A drop in the number of CT scans performed on inpatients and reduction of radiation doses lowered the estimated rate of induced cancers.

Study identifies lowest possible radiation dose that still allows for detection of pleural effusions, thickening and calcification.

Study shows patients are positioned too low, negatively impacting radiation dose and image noise in chest CT.

Use of pediatric dose-reduction protocols and shielding for CTs vary among hospitals.
