It's critical for today's healthcare professionals to understand the balance between the risks and benefits of any X-ray imaging procedure. This paper will explain the dosage levels of exams performed with the Carestream OnSight 3D Extremity System – and define its exposure levels in comparison to other sources of X-ray.
A new artificial-intelligence-based approach to image reconstruction, called AUTOMAP, yields higher quality images from less data, reducing radiation doses for CT and PET and shortening scan times for MRI. Shown here are MR images reconstructed from the same data with conventional approaches, at left, and AUTOMAP, at right. Athinoula A.

This figure shows reduced hippocampal volume over the course of 6 years as seen on progressive volumetric analysis and also coronal MRI evaluations (arrows).Progressive volume loss in the mesial temporal lobe on MRI is a characteristic imaging feature of AD. This patient was a case of Alzheimer’s Dementia.
