Here's what to expect this week on Diagnostic Imaging.

In this week’s preview, here are some highlights of what you can expect to see coming soon on Diagnostic Imaging:

RSNA 2020 is in the books, but that does not mean coverage on Diagnostic Imaging stops. The conference still has a great deal to offer. Later this week, look for the third, and final, installment of videos with David Larson, M.D., professor of radiology at Stanford University, focusing on the ethical questions and challenges surrounding the use of artificial intelligence with patient data and medical imaging.

As the country rounds into the holidays and toward the New Year, cases of COVID-19 are, once again, surging. That makes it all the more critical for providers to be able to identify patients who are infected with the virus and, potentially, learn who will fare better or worse. New research is out this week focusing on this issue – Diagnostic Imaging will report on the role imaging plays later this week.

Since March, 2020 has been a rough, demanding year, putting radiology in the middle of the worst healthcare crisis seen in a century. But, dealing with the pandemic is not the only health-related event throughout the past 12 months. While radiologists and other healthcare providers were focused on the emergent needs, advancements were still marching on in other areas of medical imaging. This week, Diagnostic Imaging will share some the biggest developments of the year in mammography.
