Radiology Imaging

The radiology imaging channel includes technology news related to computed tomography (CT), digital radiography (DR / X-ray), ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), radiographic fluoroscopy (R/F), mammography, angiography, 3-D printing, contrast media injectors, molecular imaging, neurological imaging, pediatric imaging and radiation dose management. 

Ultimately, because LYFS-CT may exclude minority patients who could benefit from LCS and underestimate the benefits of LCS, the authors of this AJR article suggested "augmenting LCS eligibility for minority patients using combinations of models"--specifically, the PLCOm2012 model in conjunction with LYFS-CT and USPSTF-2020.

The first known study exploring optimal outpatient exam scheduling through a model algorithm was shown to yield shorter wait times for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for patients and reduced costs. A collaboration including experts at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center (LHMC) and at the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College worked to identify sources of delays for MRI procedures at LHMC in order to develop a mathematical model to optimize scheduling.
