Another View of Breast Density
Amid the challenges associated with screening dense breast tissue, ultrasound modalities dedicated to breast diagnosis are gaining traction as a complement to traditional X-ray-based mammography.

Ascending to the Next Level
A landmark study making the first-ever comparison between low dose rate prostate brachytherapy and traditional dose-escalated therapy has physicians rethinking their approach to patients with prostate cancer.

Extended Reach
Flat-panel detectors, 3D imaging, and motorization are a few trending topics in the mobile C-arm industry. Find out where things stand and where the industry is headed.

In the Flow: Part 2 — Equitable Scheduling Prevents Burnout, Delivers Better Patient Care
The second segment of our two-part series examines the personnel issues surrounding the modern radiology facility—subspecialties, timeliness, automation, wear and tear—and offers strategies to synchronize the many moving parts.

FEATURES

3D Printing Takes Shape
The demand for 3D-printed models is only getting bigger, and radiologists promise to figure prominently as the awe-inspiring possibilities unfold.

Expanded Coverage
As legislation continues to influence radiology practice and manufacturers refine their products to stay ahead of the curve, CT is making a difference for radiologists in new and unexpected ways.

Balancing Act
Experts agree that even modest dose reductions can have a measurable impact on population health. To secure the best outcomes for patients and providers, best practices must figure prominently in the dose management discussion.

In the Flow: Part 1 — New Technology Helps Keep Radiology Work Flowing
In the first installment of a two-part series, we find out how radiology experts are staying ahead of their ever-growing quantities of imaging data and examine the ways artificial intelligence, cloud-based technology, and other innovations play heavily into their daily workflow.

FEATURES

Putting the AI in Radiology
Can deep learning enhance the synergy between man and machine? Industry luminaries ponder the ways artificial intelligence is currently being applied to radiology and the prospects they consider most fascinating.

A New Look
While 2D mammography remains the gold standard for breast screening, some say breast CT with contrast is poised to surpass it—and all of the other modalities that are presently in favor.

Surveying the Field
Traumatic brain injury continues to take a heavy toll on modern athletes. A biomedical engineer is developing innovative MRI-generated computer models that may lead to better concussion diagnoses and possibly a time-saving sideline protocol for athletes.

5 Things to Watch in 2018
RSNA offered a wealth of insights on developments in the industry. Here are several we will be keeping an eye on.
