AI can accurately predict uterine fibroid embolization outcomes
December 13, 2019 -- An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm's analysis of MRI exams performed prior to uterine fibroid embolization can be more accurate than radiologists in predicting whether the procedure will be successful, according to research presented at the recent RSNA 2019 meeting in Chicago.  Discuss
PET/MRI tops MRI in breast lesion comparisons
December 13, 2019 -- PET/MRI is better than MRI alone for the detection and staging of nodes and distant metastases in women with breast cancer, according to a study presented by German researchers at the recent RSNA 2019 meeting.  Discuss
AI-based model aids fMRI in ADHD detection
December 11, 2019 -- A newly developed deep-learning artificial intelligence (AI) model is lending a helping hand to radiologists reading functional MRI (fMRI) scans, helping them better predict attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), according to a study published online December 11 in Radiology: Artificial Intelligence.  Discuss
Can FDG-PET/MRI replace biopsy in breast cancer cases?
December 11, 2019 -- Although FDG-PET/MRI shows promise for accurate staging of breast cancer, the modality still isn't as accurate as sentinel lymph node biopsy, according to a study presented last week at RSNA 2019 in Chicago.  Discuss
Philips places emphasis on AI at RSNA 2019

MRI links oral contraceptives to smaller hypothalamic volumes
December 4, 2019 -- Researchers have found that healthy women taking oral contraceptives had significantly smaller hypothalamus volume, compared with women not taking the birth control pill. In a study presented Wednesday at RSNA 2019, they also pointed out smaller hypothalamic volume is linked to anger and depression.  Discuss
Video from RSNA 2019: What's happening with MRI safety
December 3, 2019 -- CHICAGO - A recent incident at an MRI scanner in Sweden indicates that there is still room for improvement when it comes to magnet safety. We talked to MRI safety expert Dr. Emanuel Kanal of the University of Pittsburgh about steps imaging centers can take to make sure both their patients and their personnel are safe.  Discuss

Information is critical for MRI and spinal cord injuries
December 3, 2019 -- CHICAGO - One good way to accurately describe and share patient information from MRI scans on spinal cord injuries is to use common features to which everyone can relate, according to findings presented on Monday at RSNA 2019.  Discuss
MRI finds communication breakdown after concussion
December 3, 2019 -- Researchers from New York University have developed a unique MRI-based approach for better evaluating damage from concussions that uses measurements of water diffusion to obtain a microscopic view of the brain's white matter, according to a study presented Tuesday at RSNA 2019.  Discuss
