Large Multinational Study Shows Link Between CT Radiation Exposure and Brain Cancer in Children and Young Adults

December 08, 2022

In a new study based on five- to six-year follow-up data from over 650,000 children and young adults who had at least one computed tomography (CT) exam prior to the age of 22, researchers found a “strong dose-response relationship” between increased CT radiation exposure and brain cancer.

Could an Emerging AI Platform Supplant Traditional MRI for Assessing Prostate Cancer?

December 07, 2022

The Food and Drug Administration has granted 510(k) clearance to iQuest (Avenda Health), an artificial intelligence (AI) platform that combines findings from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), pathology reports and biopsy results to facilitate three-dimensional mapping of prostate cancer.

The EchoGo® Heart Failure device reportedly has an 87.8 percent sensitivity rate and an 83 percent specificity rate for diagnosing heart failure with preserved ejection fraction, an increasingly prevalent but frequently misdiagnosed condition.

Study Assesses PET Agent for Detecting Pelvic Lymph Node Metastases in Patients with Prostate Cancer

December 06, 2022

For patients recently diagnosed with prostate cancer, the emerging positron emission tomography (PET) agent 18F-rhPSMA-7.3 reportedly has a 96 percent specificity rate for detecting pelvic lymph node metastases, according to Phase 3 study results recently presented at the 22nd Annual Scientific Meeting of the Society of Urologic Oncology (SUO).

Can AI Improve the Consistency of Breast Density Assessment by Radiologists?

December 06, 2022

In a recent video interview, Susan Holley, MD discussed key findings from a large retrospective longitudinal study, presented at the recent Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) conference, which found that an emerging artificial intelligence (AI) model was over 24 percent more consistent than radiologist assessment of breast density.

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.
