An ECG-triggered high-pitch CT angiography allowed simultaneous imaging of the heart, head and neck arteries.
Patients undergoing low dose CT chest screening for lung cancer may also be assessed by automated coronary artery calcification scoring.
Further strategies are required to reduce CT radiation doses used in diagnostic screening.
Physicians and radiologists should clearly communicate risks and benefits of imaging procedures, especially for pediatric patients.
Clinical decision support tools can help standardize best practices for radiologists and patients.
Medicare should fully cover low-dose CT lung cancer screening as per the USPSTF recommendations for high-risk patients.
Low-dose CT community-based lung cancer screening program effective and feasible.
More radiology tests found to be of low-value in the emergency room.
New MRI technique allows for accurate assessment of tumors in children without the radiation exposure of PET/CT scans.
Capturing data on CT radiation doses from RIS/PACS databases was more accurate and cost effective than self-reported survey data.
