This article presents an overview of our recent study in which we estimated the association between the detection of Ductal Carcinoma
in Situ (DCIS) at screening and subsequent invasive interval cancers.  Our findings suggest that for every three cases of screendetected
DCIS there was one fewer invasive interval cancer in the following three years.

Precise measurements of body composition, including body fat, muscle and liver, are essential for our understanding of conditions
associated with obesity and organ degeneration. Recent advances in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) acquisition as well as novel image analysis
systems are revolutionising our ability to undertake large scale human studies.

This article summarizes the papers presented at the recent Bracco-sponsored Satellite symposium on CT at ECR 2016. The session had several objectives: how

best to optimize contrast media injection and dose management, how these can be tracked and how increasingly complex compliance issues can be addressed.

A study was carried out to prospectively determine whether the apparent diffusion coefficients (ADC) calculated from MR images of the cervix are associated with preterm delivery in asymptomatic patients [1]. The patients had a sonographic cervical length of 15 mm or less and positive fetal fibronectin test results between 23 and 28 weeks of gestation. The results of the study show that MRI of the cervix is more accurate than ultrasound at predicting whether some women will have a preterm birth; cell density measurements derived from DWI results predicted which patients were at greater risk for impending preterm delivery. This article summarizes the findings.

Bowel or respiratory motion can lead to difficulties in making image-based diagnoses, a need for rescanning or a loss of diagnostic confidence. The Philips MultiVane XD method uses an extended reconstruction algorithm to provide imaging that is virtually motion free. In this article, Dr P. Baumann describes how the Multivane XD algorithm is being used for many applications in the radiology institute attached to the St. Joseph Stift hospital in Bremen, Germany. The use of the MultiVane XD function includes fast liver exams that are routinely carried out in the institute.

Agfa Healthcare recently conducted a technical evaluation study of the clinical usefulness and quality of images generated by the company’s X-ray imaging systems using various detectors. It was found that, while maintaining equivalent image quality, a reduction of up to 60% in radiation dose could be achieved when using cesium detectors and the company’s

MUSICA image processing software.
