Location influences imaging follow-up

2019 23 Jan

One of the major problems which is commonly attributed to affect patient outcomes is the failure to follow-up diagnostic imaging in time. It is critical to follow-up diagnostic imaging findings in order to have access to and receive high quality and vital care. Patient location at the time of undergoing imaging is directly related with how likely a... Read more

Novel Chemical "Dye" Improves Liver Cancer Imaging

2017 06 May

A novel nondiamond-based contrast agent has been developed by a team of scientists from the National University of Singapore. The chemical "dye" can be used to enhance the visibility of internal body structures in MRI and can improve the visualisation of liver cancer tumours. This in turn can facilitate earlier detection and improved treatment strategies.... Read more

Cancer Imaging: The Need to Improve Utilisation Management

2017 10 Jan

Variation in provider ordering preferences and lapses in care coordination are key factors affecting high-cost cancer imaging utilisation, according to a study published in Journal of Cancer Policy. In particular, high-ordering oncologists were found to be substantial drivers of imaging utilisation, with 58 percent more per patient imaging than their... Read more

Need for Radiologists to Solidify Position in Cancer Teams

2016 01 Aug

A new article titled "A New Look at Toxicity in the Era of Precision Oncology: Imaging Findings, Their Relationship With Tumor Response, and Effect on Metastasectomy" states that the increasing use of cancer imaging will require radiologists to solidify their position as central members of the cancer team. The article is published in the American Journal... Read more

New Imaging Model Helps Arrest Pancreatic Cancer Growth

2016 07 Jun

A new non-invasive, image-based tracking of stem cell signals in living animals could provide a strategy to arrest pancreatic cancer growth, especially the most common pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma, which is extraordinarily lethal, with a 5-year survival rate of just 6 percent. Chemotherapy treatments are poorly effective, in part due to a high... Read more

Twice Daily Radiotherapy Halves Treatment Time For Small Cell Lung Cancer

2016 05 Jun

Having radiotherapy once a day for six and a half weeks or twice a day for three weeks – when combined with chemotherapy – is equally good at treating small cell lung cancer that hasn’t spread. These results – from a Cancer Research UK-funded clinical trial presented at the ASCO cancer conference in Chicago – mean patients and doctors... Read more

Structured Reporting in Cancer Imaging: Reaching the Quality Dimension in Communication

2016 05 Jan

Medical imaging is uniquely positioned to play a pivotal role at many points in the cancer patient journey, from early detection as part of screening through to survivorship and/or end of life care.  Reliance on imaging to contribute to decision making is substantive; a review of Cancer Care Ontario’s Lung Diagnostic Pathway revealed 22 touch points...
