Study may answer critics' fears about preop breast MRI

February 01, 2008

Greater utilization of dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI at the University of California, San Diego, over a 6-year period helped improve surgery planning for tough breast cancer cases without hiking mastectomy rates

Modern multislice CT propels pancreas imaging forward

December 01, 2007

Buoyed by effective postprocessing techniques, modern multislice CT has swept away some of the modality's limitations in visualizing the complex pancreas and created new challenges for radiologists in assessing incidentally detected lesions

Thorough workup algorithm is essential for lung screening trials

December 01, 2007

The lack of an effective, detailed workup algorithm for positive results in multicenter lung cancer screening trials leads to a lower cancer yield from invasive procedures and later diagnoses for participants

Virtual colonoscopy: Is the validation phase finally over?

November 01, 2007

Compared with optical colonoscopy, CT colonography achieves similar outcomes with a fraction of the number of polypectomies
