Less than a month after British Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt announced that up to 270 women may have died of breast cancer after a technical error neglected to send 450,000 invites for final routine mammograms, one doctor is warning the number of failed invites may have been closer to 500,000, The Independent reports.
It might not be the majority of hospitals’ standard routine, but including a patient’s head during routine body imaging with FDG PET/MRI could detect far more brain abnormalities than traditional practice, according to research published in the American Journal of Roentgenology.
Nearly one-third of integrated interventional radiology residency programs lack a web presence, researchers reported in the American Journal of Roentgenology this month—and they could be missing out on recruiting the next generation of radiologists.
Adopting a nonrandom peer review process—and abandoning the ACR’s widely accepted RADPEER approach—could identify far more diagnostic errors in imaging studies and afford radiologists an opportunity to learn from theirs and their peers’ mistakes, researchers suggest in the current edition of the Journal of the American College of Radiology.
Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas, Inc., announced that two clinical studies utilizing Dynamic Digital Radiography (DDR), the company’s innovative X-ray technology under development, were presented at the American Thoracic Society (ATS) 2018 Annual Meeting this week.
Wayne State University radiologists have unlocked at least part of the puzzle behind extreme athlete Wim “The Iceman” Hof’s uncanny ability to withstand freezing temperatures—and it’s shed light on the degree of control the brain can have over the human body.
Radiology residents are able to adequately detect an abnormal chest x-ray (CXR) from a normal one, according to research published in Diagnostic and Interventional Imaging, but the demographic lacks a theoretical background in CXR that would improve those residents’ abilities to make an accurate diagnosis.
Integrating mobile learning into the radiology classroom via smartphone apps could offer individualized study options while supporting a more blended learning model, a pair of researchers reported in Radiography this month.
As the industry turns increasingly toward value-based care, radiologists might want to prioritize and cultivate their professional relationships, one Texan physician wrote in the Journal of the American College of Radiology this month.
