Could Cardiac MRI Improve Risk Stratification in Patients with Dilated Cardiomyopathy?March 20th 2023
Emerging research suggests that cardiac MRI findings of late gadolinium enhancement, native T1 values and extracellular volume fraction may predict sudden cardiac death-related events in patients with nonischemic dilated cardiomyopathy.
Meta-Analysis Finds High Risk of Bias in 83 Percent of AI Neuroimaging Models for Psychiatric DiagnosisMarch 17th 2023
In a review of 555 neuroimaging-based artificial intelligence (AI) models for the diagnosis of psychiatric disorders, researchers found that nearly 72 percent of the AI models had an inadequate sample size and over 99 percent were insufficient at handling data complexity.
Looking at Next Steps to Reinforce National Breast Density NotificationMarch 17th 2023
In a recent video interview, Amy Patel, M.D., shared her perspective on forthcoming national beast density notification in mammography reporting, emphasized the importance of educating primary care providers on breast density risks, and discussed the ongoing need for coverage of supplemental options for breast cancer screening.
Gleamer's BoneView Gains FDA Clearance for AI-Powered Pediatric Fracture DetectionMarch 15th 2023
The artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled software, which has a documented 91 percent sensitivity rate for detecting pediatric fractures, is reportedly the first AI fracture detection modality to receive FDA 510(k) clearance for use in the pediatric population.
Seven Takeaways from Best Practice Recommendations for Incidental Radiology Findings in the ERMarch 14th 2023
Noting that computed tomography (CT) scans are obtained for more than 30 million emergency department (ED) patients annually and that 31.3 percent of ED CT scans reveal incidental findings, representatives from the American College of Radiology (ACR) and the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) recently collaborated on best practice recommendations for addressing incidental imaging findings in EDs.

Newly published retrospective research involving a large database of premenopausal women in Korea showed that women were 64 percent more likely to have dense breasts if their mother and a sister had breast cancer.
Current Insights on National Breast Density Notification for Mammography ReportsMarch 12th 2023
In a recent video interview, Wendie Berg, M.D., Ph.D., discussed the newly issued final rule from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requiring a national standard for breast density notification (starting on September 10, 2024) as well as its potential impact in mammography reporting and facilitating supplemental screening for patients with dense breasts.
FDA Issues Final Rule on National Breast Density Notification for Mammography ReportsMarch 9th 2023
As part of updates to the Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) of 1992, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a final rule that requires the inclusion of breast density assessment in mammography reports starting on September 10, 2024.
New Chest CT Study Assesses Impact of COVID-19 Variants and Vaccination StatusMarch 8th 2023
Emerging research from a multicenter study found that COVID-19 vaccination was affiliated with a lower likelihood of high computed tomography (CT) severity scores and typical CT findings for COVID-19 in comparison to unvaccinated patients.
Autonomous AI Shows Nearly 27 Percent Higher Sensitivity than Radiology Reports for Abnormal Chest X-RaysMarch 7th 2023
In a study of over 1,500 patients, researchers found that an emerging artificial intelligence (AI) modality had significantly higher sensitivity rates for abnormal posteroanterior chest radiographs and critical finding radiographs than radiology reports.
