Here's what is coming soon to Diagnostic Imaging.

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

In our continued coverage of Breast Cancer Awareness month, breast imaging radiologist, Daniel Shekleton, M.D., from Raleigh Radiology in North Carolina examines recent investigations in the United Kingdom into the effects of launching annual mammography screening at age 40, underscoring the recommendations from the American College of Radiology and the Society of Breast Imaging. Look for his article later this week.

Staying knowledgeable of how a woman’s breast density affects imaging is critical, and knowing whether a patient has dense breast can influence your use of preoperative MRI. Investigators from University of Pennsylvania have examined in what circumstances this modality and technique works best. We explore their findings in an article that will appear later this week.

Corporatization is not new in radiology, but the trend is definitely growing. Diagnostic Imaging spoke this week with Dr. Rich Heller, associate chief medical officer, and Dr. Nina Kottler, vice president of clinical operations, with Radiology Partners about how corporatization benefits radiology as an industry and the impacts it can have at the local level. Keep an eye out for their video interview this week.
