The findings support adopting F-18 DCFPyL PET/CT as the standard of care for prostate cancer staging, authors of a new Scientific Reports paper concluded.
The USPSTF’s update suggests that women should screen every other year, but the group's own modeling studies have cited the benefits of annual screening.
The task force cited insufficient evidence as the driver behind the decision to forego recommending supplemental screening.
These findings highlight a need for more stringent and standardized reporting guidelines relative to incidental findings, authors of the new study suggested.
Radiologists interpreting screening mammograms may be especially susceptible to falling victim to automation bias, as these exams are repetitive in nature.
Many new imaging solutions were on display at the world's largest health informatics conference, held at McCormick Place in Chicago.
Radiologist David Gruen, MD, discusses some of the overarching themes from the Healthcare Information Management Systems Society's annual meeting.
End-users of various radiology IT systems offer their assessment of the software in the annual KLAS Research 2023 Best in KLAS report.
Downgrading lung nodules at 3-month follow-up 'may be problematic'
A new analysis suggests that follow-up imaging protocols for certain lung nodules identified via CT may need to be revisited.
DBT not the superior modality for assessing BI-RADS 4 breast lesions
Assessing more than 11,000 patients with lesions designated as BI-RADS 4, radiologists using digital breast tomosynthesis found no significant diagnostic advantages over standard 2D mammography.
Recognizing intimate partner violence injuries on imaging before they escalate
“These findings emphasize the importance of early recognition of IPV and timely intervention to prevent further harm to the victim,” authors of research published in Academic Radiology cautioned.
A 'disconcerting' number of patients at high risk of lung cancer put off follow-up care
Up to 47% of patients identified as being at high risk of lung cancer after CT screening drag their feet before seeking follow-up care.
Large study details new associations between breast cancer risk, breast density and benign breast disease
Providers screening women with dense breasts and benign breast disease should consider individualized mammogram protocols for these patients, authors of the study suggested.
Prostate cancer recurrence scoring system yields 'promising' results
An international panel of experts recently developed and validated a reporting assessment scoring system that analyzes the location and extent of prostate cancer recurrence.
Abdominal CT comparable to DXA for osteoporosis screening
Outside of the correlation between measurements obtained using both modalities, the researchers also identified Hounsfield unit thresholds that could reliably rule out osteoporosis.
Is coronary heart disease on CT associated with early development of COPD?
"This awareness is important to avoid oversight of symptoms like dyspnea and vague chest discomfort, which can easily be interpreted as symptoms caused by the known disease COPD,” experts involved in the study said.
