How should we do and report pre-TAVI/TAVR CT/MRI examinations?

This increasingly successful method for percutaneous valve repair comes with the necessity of very precise and detailed analysis in order to plan the implant position. This can be achieved by CT and/or MRI. The European Society of Cardiovascular Radiology provides...

What is grating-interferometry mammography?

This article explains the principle of grating-interferometry mammography. This can be obtained through the modification of a standard mammography device. The dose is unchanged. It provides different and additional information when compared with mammography. Article:...

Imaging the placenta: a new frontier?

Detection of invasive placenta is important as it necessitates special attention and treatment. A combination of US (anterior placenta) and MRI (posterior placenta) allows for reliable detection and staging. Article: Identification of suspicious invasive placentation...

Improving your report on US of varicoceles

Varicoceles are very common and sometimes not properly reported. Nonetheless, US examination allows for going much further than detection. The ESUR group provides useful hints for better reports. Article: Ultrasound evaluation of varicoceles: guidelines and...

What is the real dose for “Ultra-Low-Dose Chest CT”?

Radiation dose is an increasing concern, especially in the chest, and this area allows very significant dose reduction, preserving diagnostic capability. The comparison with chest X-Rays is more and more valid. Article: Dose estimation of ultra-low-dose chest CT to...

Is Dual-Energy CT beneficial for head and neck imaging?

Dual-energy is constantly gaining ground. This is also the case for head and neck imaging. This study may well encourage us to change our protocols. Article: Comparison of dual- and single-source dual-energy CT in head and neck imaging Authors: Matthias Stefan May,...
