Parallel processing gives boost to mammography

Strong evidence suggests that MR imaging is the most sensitive of all breast imaging techniques, including state-of-the-art mammography and high-frequency breast ultrasound. In contrast to mammography, the sensitivity and specificity of MR are not impaired by dense breast tissue, fibrocystic disease, or therapeutic interventions such as postsurgical scars or radiotherapy-induced fibrosis.

Contrast gives the edge to digital breast scans

The clinical importance of tumor angiogenesis in primary breast cancer is well known. Studies have shown that intratumoral microvessel density is an independent prognostic indicator that correlates with a higher incidence of metastases.1,2

MSCT venography finds cerebral thromboses

Dural sinus and cerebral venous thromboses (CVT) are difficult to diagnose. Symptoms are often nonspecific and may evolve slowly, and anatomic variations can further complicate diagnostic decision making. Unilateral aplasias of the transverse or sigmoid sinus, frontal agenesis of the superior sagittal sinus, and high partitions of the transverse sinus are common pitfalls in the diagnosis of CVT.

MR contributes to evaluation of pediatric Crohn's disease

Crohn's disease can involve any part of the gastroenteric tract but most often affects the distal ileum and colon. It is characterized by chronic inflammation that extends through all layers of the intestinal wall and involves both mesentery and regional lymph nodes.

Telehealth establishes value of connectivity in combat

Telehealth, specifically teleradiology, is becoming more commonplace across the globe, and forward-deployed medical care in wartime is no exception. Theater healthcare may in fact help set an example for austere environments elsewhere, including rural U.S. regions.

CTA revolutionizes treatment of peripheral vascular disease

We continue to be both amazed and intrigued by the hype showered on cardiac CT angiography and the corresponding lack of hype given to peripheral vascular CTA. No doubt, 64-slice cardiac or coronary CTA is potentially a revolutionizing technology, but PV-CTA has already revolutionized the comprehensive diagnosis and treatment of peripheral vascular disease.

Will patient pics improve or harm interpretation quality?

Radiologists may discover more on CT scans, and feel more connected to patients, when patients' photographs are included with the CT images, according to a study presented at the last RSNA meeting by Israeli researcher Dr. Yehonatan Turner.

Canada develops ambitious electronic health network

Canadian officials estimate that by 2010, at least half of all residents will have their own electronic health record. The EHR is intended to include a cradle-to-grave clinical history, using a single patient identification number. It will eventually be interoperable across the country and its multitiered healthcare delivery organizations. This prediction is not just a political pipedream, as implementation is already well under way.

IHE portable data profile fixes interoperability snags

The shift from film-based images and hard-copy reports to soft-copy reading and digital archiving has sparked challenges when it comes to sharing and distributing data. Referring physicians and patients now typically expect to receive medical data and images on portable media such as compact discs and DVDs. But not all of these portable devices are reliably interoperable with PACS and enterprise IT systems.
