Study Looks at Potential Impact of Expanded Eligibility for Low-Dose CT Lung Cancer Screening

October 06, 2022

Modifications to pack-year history and smoking quit duration thresholds beyond those recommended in the 2021 United States Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF) criteria for low-dose computed tomography lung cancer screening may more than double the number of increased lung cancer cases physicians would see with application of the 2021 USPSTF screening criteria.

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.

Five Takeaways from New Consensus Recommendations for CT Imaging and Reporting in Patients with CAD

September 23, 2022

In an update of the original CAD-RADS™ consensus document on coronary artery disease (CAD) imaging and reporting published in 2016, expert panelists incorporated emerging evidence for CAD-RADS 2.0 to recommend new categorization for coronary plaque burden and suggested modifiers to reflect the level of ischemia and high-risk plaque in patients undergoing cardiac computed tomography.

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.
