Study Finds Key Benefits and Low Use of Pre-Op MRI for Patients Having Surgery for Prostate Cancer

June 17, 2022

Despite increased use of preoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in recent years for patients undergoing surgery for prostate cancer, a study found that over 70 percent of a large Medicare population with prostate cancer did not have a preoperative MRI scan as of 2015.

AI Software Facilitates 22.1 Percent Reduction in Chest CT Review Time

June 17, 2022

Noting that an AI software platform could save radiologists up to an hour a day in interpreting chest computed tomography (CT) scans, the authors of a prospective study found shorter mean interpretation times with non-contrast and contrast-enhanced CT as well as positive CT scans with and without significant new findings.
