X-Ray | December 07, 2015

Researchers have developed software for the Microsoft Kinect gaming console that measures body part thickness and checks for motion, positioning and beam adjustment immediately before X-ray imaging, according to a feasibility study presented at the 2015 meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). The technology may help reduce radiation exposure and aid in higher quality images to ensure diagnostic accuracy. Microsoft Kinect was originally developed as a motion sensor and facial and voice recognition device for the Xbox gaming system that enabled players to play games without a standard controller. Subsequently, the technology has been adapted for select non-gaming applications. For this feasibility study, researchers combined the technology of the Microsoft Kinect 1.0 with proprietary software to address common problems that affect imaging results, including body-part thickness and motion. This fail-safe helps to reduce or eliminate common causes of unnecessary repeat image acquisition.

Ultrasound Imaging | December 07, 2015

Research presented at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2015 meeting. In the first study of its kind, researchers recorded simultaneous audio and visual evidence of knuckles cracking. The images showed a bright flash on ultrasound, like a firework exploding in the joint, an unexpected finding. There have been several theories over the years and a fair amount of controversy about what is happening in the joint when it cracks. Researchers believe the cracking sound and bright flash on ultrasound are related to the dynamic changes in pressure associated with a gas bubble in the joint. As for which comes first — the cracking sound or the flash of light — more research is needed. Read the story
