Using realistic 3D-printed models can help train medical students on the subject of interventional radiology vascular access, according to new research presented at the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) annual meeting in Los Angeles.
Few radiologists understand the relationship between radiology and artificial intelligence (AI) quite like Keith Dreyer, DO, PhD, vice chairman and associate professor of radiology at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.
Researchers have developed a novel technique that reconstructs medical images using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, according to a new study published in Nature. This saves radiologists valuable time and could potentially result in patients being exposed to lower radiation doses.
Early data suggest image-guided injections of immunotherapy could be used to treat advanced-stage liver tumors, according to a study presented at the Society of Interventional Radiology’s annual meeting in Los Angeles.
Enrollment in a Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) Accountable Care Organization (ACO) is associated with improvements in appropriateness of breast and colorectal screening, according to a new study published in JAMA Internal Medicine. It was also associated with a reduction in the number of patients being screened for prostate cancer.
Utah Gov. Gary Herbert, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee and Florida Gov. Rick Scott have all signed breast density reporting legislation into law this week. These laws require facilities that perform mammography to notify patients when it is determined they have dense breast tissue.
In 2014, researchers implemented a structured reporting system for describing adnexal masses identified in ultrasound examinations in a healthcare system that treats more than 4.1 million patients annually.
When patients experience blunt neck injuries—after a car accident, for example—follow-up MRI is not necessary after a CT scan comes back negative for spine instability, according to a new study published in JAMA Surgery.
Freezing the posterior vagal trunk, the nerve that sends hunger-related signals to the brain, could help patients with mild-to-moderate obesity lose weight, according to research presented at the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) annual meeting in Los Angeles.
