Top 25 Stories in Radiology in 2020

The highest performing news articles from the past year based on website analytics

All but 3 of the top 25 articles in 2020 were on COVID-19. The other 3 were on MRI contrast advances and the development of a cold-cathode X-ray tube technology. #COVID19

All but 3 of the top 25 articles in 2020 were on COVID-19. The other 3 were on MRI contrast advances and the development of a cold-cathode X-ray tube technology.

Here are the top 25 best performing articles on the Imaging Technology News (ITN) website from 2020. This is based on the analytics of ITN's record 3.2 million pagesviews in 2020.

COVID-19 was clearly the main interest on the minds of radiologists in 2020, with all but 3 articles below involving COVID. Many of these articles are from earlier in the year and during the first COVID wave that hit the U.S. when radiologists were scrambling to get access to any information regarding COVID imaging. ITN had more than 1.4 million pageviews just for COVID pandemic coverage.

The 3 non-COVID article discuss MRI contrast and the development of a cold-cathode X-ray technology.

A 37-year-old woman developed a new, palpable left supraclavicular lymphadenopathy lump five days after her first dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine in the left arm. On the day of vaccination, the patient was asymptomatic. This is an example of how the vaccine can mimic cancer and swollen lymph nodes. Image used with permission of RSNA.
