CT Measures Soft Coronary Plaque in Patients with Diabetes
Coronary CT angiography helps clinicians assess soft coronary plaque in patients with diabetes, identifying those who are at risk of cardiac disease or event.
False-Positive Mammogram Findings do not Discourage Future Testing
Women who receive false-positive mammography results are still likely to undergo future testing.
Strategies for Lowering Screening Radiation Doses
Further strategies are required to reduce CT radiation doses used in diagnostic screening.
Coronary Artery Calcification Can Predict Acute Coronary Syndrome
Pulmonary CT angiograms that detect coronary artery calcification can help predict acute coronary syndrome in some patients
18F-FDG/PET Helps Predict Prognosis of Vegetative Patients
18F-FDG PET more accurate than fMRI and may help physicians better determine the long-term recovery of patients with unresponsive wakefulness syndrome.

Diffusor tensor imaging (DTI) identifies regional white matter damage in the brains of people who sustained mild brain injuries.
10 Questions with Cynthia Sherry, MD
Our “10 Questions” series asks the same questions to a diverse group of professionals in the medical imaging community.
More Noninvasive Cardiac Imaging Linked to Higher Admission Rates
As clinicians order more noninvasive cardiac imaging for patients with suspected ischemia, hospital admission rates and angiography rise.
Use of Digital Breast Tomosynthesis Grows, Clinical Guidelines Needed
Radiologists are using DBT clinically and more frequently, but it still remains a limited resource.
CT Shows Coronary Artery Plaque Prevalent Among HIV-infected Men
Imaging with CT and coronary CT angiography shows prevalent and extensive presence of coronary artery plaque among men infected with HIV.
