  • The purpose of this study is to evaluate the positive predictive values (PPVs) of Breast Imaging and Reporting Data Systems (BI-RADS) assessment categories for breast magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and to identify the BI-RADS MR imaging lesion features most predictive of cancer. Show Preview
  • Scientists used a functional magnetic resonance imaging scanner to see what parts of the brain responded most strongly when people talked about their own beliefs and options, indicating that self-disclosure triggers the same sensation of pleasure in the brain as food or money. Show Preview
  • The growing use of CT as a diagnostic imaging tool has led to increased concern over radiation dose, particularly in pediatric patients. Show Preview
  • Results of Base-Case Analysis showed screening average-risk women aged 50 to 74 years biennially yields the same false-positive findings/life-years gained as biennial screening with digital mammography starting at age 40 years for women with a 2-fold increased risk above average. Show Preview
  • Researchers from the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center at UCLA studied 39 patients with soft-tissue sarcoma who received a PET scan to measure tumor metabolism prior to chemotherapy. Show Preview
  • This study found that a CCTA-based strategy for low-to-intermediate-risk patients presenting with a possible acute coronary syndrome appears to allow the safe, expedited discharge from the emergency department of many patients who would otherwise be admitted. Show Preview
  • Lung cancer screening is not established as a public health practice, yet the results of a recent large randomized controlled trial showed that screening with low-dose spiral computed tomography reduces lung cancer mortality. Show Preview
  • Computed tomography (CT) has become the predominant test for diagnosing acute appendicitis in adults. Show Preview
