A Closer Look at Ultrasound and MRI Alternatives for Head and Neck Imaging

September 29, 2022

In light of recent shortages of iodinated contrast media, researchers from Australia suggest in a new publication that ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can be viable first-line imaging options for a number of non-urgent presentations of the head and neck.

Could a New Deep Learning Tool Enhance CT Detection of Pancreatic Cancer?

September 13, 2022

New research reveals that an emerging deep learning tool had comparable sensitivity and specificity to radiologist assessment of contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) scans for pancreatic cancer, and a 74.7 percent sensitivity rate for tumors smaller than 2 cm.

Managing Incidentalomas in Radiology: Embracing Challenges as Opportunities

September 12, 2022

Greater imaging utilization has increased the prevalence of incidental findings or incidentalomas, but unclear clinical context and guidelines complicate management. Accordingly, these authors offer a thorough review of the literature and discuss new opportunities for improving interdisciplinary management strategies.

New Study Suggests Lung-Related Comorbidities Have No Impact on Lung Cancer Detection

September 08, 2022

Comparing patients with and without comorbidities ranging from emphysema and tuberculosis to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), researchers found that cancer detection rates and false-positive rates remained similar in lung cancer screening.

Will a New Spectral CT Imaging Suite Reinvent Interventional Radiology?

September 07, 2022

Amid emerging research showing the benefits of spectral computed tomography (CT) imaging in interventional radiology, the newly launched Phillips Spectral Angio CT Suite may provide enhanced efficiencies in care for stroke, oncology, and trauma patients.
