#RSNA18: MRI finds depression and anxiety brain pattern

2018 27 Nov

In a study presented at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago, researchers have uncovered a common pattern of structural similarities and differences in the brains of people suffering from depression and social anxiety using MRI. The study compared major depressive disorder (MDD) and social anxiety... Read more

#RSNA18: AI may help reduce MRI gadolinium dose

2018 27 Nov

In a study presented at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago, researchers using artificial intelligence have developed a deep learning algorithm that may lead to the reduction of the gadolinium dose used in contrast material for MRI exams. “There is concrete evidence that gadolinium deposits in the brain...

#RSNA18: MRI more accurate to predict Alzheimer’s disease

2018 20 Nov

A new study that will be presented next week during the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) shows MRI brain scans are better at predicting the development of Alzheimer’s disease in patients compared to clinical tests commonly used today. Until now, the standardized questionnaires and tests to measure cognition and... Read more

Key imaging and clinical features of paediatric head trauma

2018 24 Oct

Paediatric head trauma is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in children and may be seen in the setting of accidental or abusive injuries. Many of the patterns of head injury are similar to adults, but it is worth noting that the imaging manifestations of head injury in children are more complex due to the developing brain and calvarium,...

MRI technique helps detect multiple sclerosis disability risk

2018 25 Jul

Researchers have tested a new MRI technique, called quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM), to track iron levels in the brains of multiple sclerosis patients. They found that brain iron levels can help identify those at a higher risk for developing physical disability, according to a new study published in the journal Radiology.  Multiple... Read more

New MRI technique for detecting Alzheimer’s disease

2018 18 Jul

Researchers in Spain have developed a new contrast agent for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) based on functionalised magnetic nanoparticles that could work as a biomarker for early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease. Their work could pave the way for new studies that develop methods of early and noninvasive diagnosis of this neurodegenerative disease. ... Read more

2018 06 Jun

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...

MRI: rapid determination of implant safety status

2018 02 May

Safety screening is an essential prerequisite to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Radiologist approval is often required to determine whether MRI can proceed safely in patients with medical and cosmetic devices or embedded foreign bodies. Although many sources of safety information are available online, MRI may be delayed or cancelled, especially... Read more
