Trained and developed on over 35,000 low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) scans and validated in three independent data sets, a deep learning algorithm demonstrated an average area under the curve (AUC) of 90.6 percent for predicting lung cancer withon one year. READ MORE
In a recent video interview, Amar Kishan, M.D., discussed a new study that demonstrated significant side effect reduction when utilizing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) guidance instead of computed tomography (CT) guidance for stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) to treat localized prostate cancer.

In a multicenter study involving nearly 300 patients, researchers found that abbreviated magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) had a sensitivity rate of 88.2 percent and a specificity rate of 89.1 percent for detecting early-stage hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). READ MORE
For premenopausal women with regular menstrual cycles, researchers have found a significant association between the timing of menstrual cycles and the degree of background parenchymal enhancement (BPE) on contrast-enhanced mammography. READ MORE
Reliminary research suggests the use of photon-counting detector computed tomography (CT) may facilitate a 25 percent reduction of iodinated contrast media (ICM) in comparison to energy-integrating detector CT for angiographic imaging of the thoracoabdominal aorta. READ MORE
