What could possibly go wrong?: Thinking about the risks and benefits of medical treatments
Humanizing radiology should be not a fashion but a way to rethink the profession of the radiologist instead. It represents not only a challenge but also an opportunity to redefine the role of the diagnostic radiologist as a physician primarily in the continuum of caring for patients. From my point of view, there are great reasons to humanize... Read more
Radiomics is a hot topic in radiology. A steadily increasing number of researchers across the globe is engaging in radiomics and applying it to a large number of imaging data. “Radiomics” means the extraction of a large number of quantitative imaging features from routinely acquired imaging data (e.g, x-ray, ultrasound, CT, MRI, PET) in order to...

When a patient suffers from traumatic brain injury (TBI), there aren’t many treatment options available to physicians, and a team of engineers and emergency medicine physicians decided they could make a strong contribution if they joined forces. Funded by the Massey Grand Challenge, the team built an ultrasound system to detect secondary brain injury,... Read more
