Two new studies are showing the advantages that 7-Tesla (7-T) ultra-high-field magnetic resonance imaging can provide in certain clinical applications.
Magnetic resonance imaging can, by identifying vulnerable carotid plaque characteristics, help predict the likelihood of cardiovascular events in persons without a history of cardiovascular disease, according to a study published in Radiology.
In December 2009 the Archives of Internal Medicine (now JAMA Internal Medicine) published two studies that found that CT scans were exposing patients to far more radiation than anyone realized, and...
According to research published this month in the American Journal of Roentgenology, the vast majority of patient education articles that make their way onto RadiologyInfo.org--a jointly sponsored website of the American College of Radiology and the Radiological Society of North America--are written at a 10th grade level. That may not seem like too much of an intellectual burden to overcome for radiologists who are, by definition, highly educated. But, when one looks at the American population as a whole, it's a problem.

Integrating radiology rooms into clinical areas can provide a number of benefits to referring physicians and patients, and even help reduce the number of unnecessary repeat imaging studies, according to an article in the Journal of the American College of Radiology.
Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a tiny catheter-based device that can be used to provide real-time 3-D imaging from inside the heart and arteries.
