What BI-RADS Changes Are on the Way for Breast MRI Reporting?

December 02, 2022

In a recent lecture at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) conference, Wendy DeMartini, MD, discussed a variety of preliminary proposed changes to the Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS) for breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examinations.

Can Emerging AI-Guided Software Rein in Scan Times for Cardiac MRI?

December 01, 2022

In a recent video interview, Raymond Y. Kwong, MD, discussed his clinical experience with the (formerly HeartVista) One Click MRI software and recent research, presented at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) conference, that revealed a 31 percent decrease in cardiac MRI scan times for patients with cardiomyopathy or structural heart disease.

Can Ultra-Low-Dose CT be Effective for Lung Cancer Screening in Current or Past Smokers?

November 29, 2022

Ultra-low-dose computed tomography (ULDCT) may have similar efficacy as low-dose CT (LDCT) for detecting a variety of pulmonary conditions in people with current or past smoking histories, but had poor detection of ground glass opacification lesions, according to a recent prospective study presented at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) conference.

Study Examines Racial Differences in Mammography and Ultrasound Imaging Characteristics of Breast Cancer

November 19, 2022

In a study of over 800 women with breast cancer, researchers found that African-American women had a higher rate of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) and were less likely to have irregular masses in screening exams in comparison to non-Latina White women.
