For people with COVID-19 related brain fog, emerging dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI (DCE-MRI) research findings revealed blood-brain barrier disruption in multiple brain regions, including temporal lobes and the frontal cortex, up to a year after active infection.
The use of computed tomography (CT) for cases of minor head trauma was associated with a 29 percent higher incidence of hematologic malignant neoplasms in comparison to those with no CT, according to a new study involving over 2,400,000 pediatric patients.
In comparison to biennial mammography screening between the ages of 50 to 74, researchers found that annual screening between 40 and 79 years of age resulted in a greater than 16 percent higher reduction in breast cancer mortality.
The use of ultrahigh spatial resolution with photon-counting CT led to lower Coronary Artery Disease Reporting and Data System (CAD-RADS) category assessments in over 54 percent of patients in comparison to the use of standard spatial resolution, according to recently published research.
Automation of probe reprocessing can have multiple benefits for patients, clinicians and facilities, including improvements in efficiency, accuracy, compliance, standardization and safety. When considering process options for high level disinfection of ultrasound probes, automated systems can be an efficient and cost-effective way to prevent patients from the risk of infection. It’s time to work smarter, safer, happier, more efficiently, and accurately… not harder.
Patients who had CT angiography procedures reported lower pain levels, better preparation and were 25 percent more willing to undergo the procedure again in comparison to patients who had invasive coronary angiography, according to newly published research.
Noting the challenges of conservative therapy and limitations of total knee arthroplasty, the targeted minimally invasive geniculate artery embolization, performed by interventional radiologists, may be a viable treatment alternative.
Given a certain perception that calling out sick is frowned upon in health care, radiologists and other health care workers may feel conflicted about being absent even if an illness has reduced their capacity for getting work done on a given day.
For women with dense breasts, only 25 percent of breast radiologists are confident in the use of mammography for diagnosing invasive lobular carcinoma, according to newly published survey results from the Society of Breast Imaging.
In a recent assessment of PI-RADS upgrading rules, researchers found that ignoring the upgrading rules would lead to one missed diagnosis of clinically significant prostate cancer per 5.5 biopsies avoided with MRI-focused risk pathways.
The adjunctive use of AI software led to 16 percent and 10 percent increases in sensitivity rates for the detection of ARIA-E and ARIA-H, respectively, in patients with Alzheimer’s disease, according to newly published research.
The AI-enabled HealthFLD software demonstrated a 77.8 percent sensitivity rate and a 93.2 percent specificity rate for diagnosing moderate hepatic steatosis on contrast-enhanced CT scans in a recent study of over 2,900 patients.
