Researchers have discovered that determining a tumor's medulloblastoma subgroup can be achieved noninvasively, using magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS).
Researchers have developed a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agent with the capability to pinpoint much smaller aggressive breast cancer tumors and micrometastases.
New molecular tools are emerging to identify lung adenocarcinomas during pulmonary resection. The results of a proof-of-concept study suggest that fluorescent imaging of lung cancer during surgery using targeted molecular agents may soon be a reality.
The newly developed NIR contrast agents can aid surgeons is distinguishing the thyroid and parathyroid glands from each other and from the surrounding tissue.
A gap exists between patient expectations and current practices for provision of information about radiation use.
Across all patient groups and imaging services, more imaging is used by advanced practice clinicians (APCs) than primary care doctors.
The researchers found that the sensitivity, false-positive rate, and cancer detection rate of screening mammography increased with increasing numbers of radiologist work-ups for their own recalled mammograms.
A new type of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan, known as diffusion-weighted MRI, could improve care for myeloma and reduce reliance on bone marrow biopsies.
First-of-its-kind research shows promise for developing a method to clearly identify cancerous tissue during surgery. These findings may potentially improve outcomes for those undergoing surgery to remove glioblastoma multiforme.
More than one-third of younger, early-stage breast cancer patients undergo unnecessary imaging procedures at the time of staging and diagnosis, according to research presented at the 2013 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium.
Researchers are recommending a more selective approach to biopsy of thyroid nodules after finding that only three nodule characteristics found on thyroid ultrasound imaging were associated with the risk for thyroid cancer.
Carbohydrate antigen 125 (CA125) testing, already used to predict ovarian cancer recurrence, has now shown strong results as a screening technique for early-stage disease when combined with transvaginal ultrasound.
There has been increasing incidence of small and indolent thyroid cancer but mortality rate has been stable since 1979.
Assessing bone marrow involvement in persons with a new diagnosis of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is better accomplished with 18F-FDG positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT).
The rate of inappropriate cancer scans for low-risk prostate cancer patients in Sweden plummeted in the decade following a joint campaign to curtail such tests. The campaign was run by the Swedish County Councils and the National Prostate Cancer Register (NPCR) of Sweden

Screening performance on adenoma and advanced neoplasia detection is consistent among radiologists using metrics that included advanced neoplasia detection rate and per-polyp endoscopic confirmation rate.
The amino acid imaging agent O-(2-[18F]-fluroethyl)-L-tyrosine (F-18 FET) has diagnostic benefit for imaging pediatric gliomas when conventional MRI is ineffective.
Simultaneously combining positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance (MR) has a higher capacity to map recurrent prostate cancer than the already high standard of integrated PET and computed tomography (CT), according to research.
Digital chest tomosynthesis holds promise as a first-line tool for lung cancer screening, according to the baseline results of a single-arm, observational study.
No association between background enhancement on MRIs and breast density found, but rather an association with higher BE and premenopausal women.
