Has point-of-care ultrasound outpaced hospitals’ capacity to incorporate the technology without anointing any particular specialty its proper guardian? The case could be made.

Regardless of a patient’s body mass index, using a scanner-integrated 3D camera for situating CT patients on the table can optimize not only patient positioning but also radiation dose. 

The firm in question, TRC Capital Investment Corp., has a history of making below-market offers to shareholders of large corporations. These offers are typically unsolicited. 

Bhvita Jani, research manager at Signify Research, explains the technology trends she is seeing in the radiology X-ray market.

Dallas-based MedCognetics and its academic R&D partners will have $750,000 more to spend refining diversity-calibrated AI for early detection of breast cancer, thanks to the NIH’s “AIM-AHEAD” initiative.

A multidisciplinary center dedicated to early detection of cancer in ostensibly healthy individuals has demonstrated the soundness of its founding concept, cost-effectively catching cancers of many kinds before the onset of symptoms.

The increase has been especially evident in single-encounter chest/abdominopelvic scans, not least those performed for minor injuries.

John Gaede, director of information systems, Sky Lakes Medical Center, Oregon, discusses how hospitals should prepare for possible cyberattacks.

This is a clinical photo gallery of fetal imaging that explains what all can be seen on medical imaging, how sex is determined, how measurements are used to track the development of a baby and how potential issues can be diagnosed. It includes examples of fetal ultrasound, the primary imaging modality used during gestation, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and some rare images of fetal computed tomography (CT). 

Incoming AAPM President Ehsan Samei, PhD, FACR, chief imaging physicist for Duke University Health System, helped develop two specialized radiology phantom astronauts to measure how much radiation NASA astronauts will receive on future Artemis missions to the Moon and beyond.
