In a review of 22 studies and data from over 132,000 women with dense breasts and negative mammography exams, researchers found that magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was superior to digital breast tomosynthesis, handheld ultrasound and automated whole breast ultrasound for the detection of breast cancer.

Researchers showed that adjunctive use of a deep learning algorithm resulted in an eight percent increase in sensitivity and a nearly 10 percent increase in specificity for differentiating between colon carcinoma and acute diverticulitis on computed tomography (CT) scans. READ MORE
In what is reportedly the first Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance for the use of artificial intelligence (AI) for musculoskeletal ultrasound, the model provides automated measurements of tendons in the knee, ankle, and foot. READ MORE
In a study of over 9,000 children that examined structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data as well as parent and child self-reporting of adversity-related measures, researchers found that greater exposure to adversities for Black children was linked to lower gray matter volume in the amygdala and multiple subregions of the prefrontal cortex in comparison to White children.

While acknowledging a moderate to high risk of bias in the retrospective studies reviewed for a recent meta-analysis, researchers found the current evidence supports the use of high-intensity magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) surveillance for detection of soft tissue sarcoma recurrence. READ MORE
