Physicians Not Discussing Lung Cancer Screening as per USPSTF Guidelines
Despite recommendations, shared decision-making for lung cancer screening in practice may be far from what is intended by guidelines.
Whole-Body CT Can Miss Injuries
Older age, multiple traumas lead to missed injuries on whole-body CT.

DTI imaging shows women are more sensitive to these types of head impacts at the level of brain tissue microstructure.
Higher Level of Oversight Results in Greater Harmonization of Imaging Protocols
Radiology practices with collaborative, consensus-based decision-making and conflict resolution processes can lead to greater standardization.
Women Underrepresented in Radiology
Underrepresentation is highly variable at state, county, and practice levels.
Researchers Identify Sonographic Characteristics for Thyroid Malignancies in Children
Likelihood of malignancy did not differ between boys and girls.

Fewer Recalls with Synthesized Mammography Plus Digital Breast Tomosynthesis
The use of synthesized mammography instead of additional full-field digital mammography has no significant effect on biopsy rate.
Radiologist Experience May Affect Screening Mammography Recall Rate
Interventions targeting radiologist factors may help reduce unwarranted variation in screening recalls.
Cranial CT Recommended for Pediatric Polytrauma Patients with Glasgow Scale 13 or Less
There is no clinical variable that can be used as sole indication for WBCT in pediatric polytrauma patients.
Brain Tumor Incidence Higher Following Childhood CT Scans
The pattern of excess cancer risk may be partly due to confounding by indication.
