Negative results from LCS translate to lack of screening follow-up
May 26, 2023 -- Patients with consecutive negative lung cancer screening results on low-dose CT (LDCT) are more likely not to comply with annual screening protocols, according to a study published May 25 in JAMA Network Open.  Discuss
Radiology well-positioned to integrate AI, but concerns remain
May 26, 2023 -- Although artificial intelligence (AI) has only had a modest impact on radiology so far, the specialty is still well-positioned to incorporate the technology, according to a review article published May 25 in the New England Journal of Medicine.  Discuss
CT CAC data bests genetic factors for heart disease risk assessment
May 24, 2023 -- Coronary artery calcium (CAC) score data on CT imaging are more effective at predicting a middle-aged person's heart disease risk than genetic factors, according to a study published May 23 in JAMA.  Discuss
PCCT effective for imaging pediatric heart defects

Are incidental findings on lung cancer screening getting flagged?
May 4, 2023 -- Incidental findings on low-dose CT (LDCT) lung cancer screening are relatively common. But are they being flagged -- and followed up -- appropriately? Perhaps not, if a recent study involving U.S. military veterans is any indication.  Discuss
