Nonphysician practitioners more likely to use contrast media for CT
Nonphysician practitioners (NPPs) are more likely to use contrast media for ordered computed tomography (CT) examinations, according to a study published online Dec. 12 in the Journal of the American College of Radiology.
AI fails to pass radiology-qualifying examination
Artificial intelligence (AI) is currently unable to pass one of the qualifying radiology examinations, suggesting that this promising technology is not yet ready to replace doctors, finds a study in the Christmas issue of The BMJ.
Specialized MRI sensor can detect light deep within tissues
Using a specialized MRI sensor, MIT researchers have shown that they can detect light deep within tissues such as the brain.
AI model helps diagnose severity of COVID-19 pneumonia
The automated deep-learning framework, described in the Journal of Medical Imaging, helps aid in the evaluation of disease progression and assist the computed tomographic (CT) monitoring of different treatment responses. It does so as accurately—and significantly faster—as expert manual measurements done by physicians.
New technology could increase scan speeds of three-dimensional MRIs
The invention could lead to faster results, increase the clinical applications of MRIs, and ultimately improve patient care.
