Deep-learning accelerated brain MRI improves stroke lesion detection

AuntMinnie

Deep learning-accelerated brain MRI improves the detection of acute ischemic lesions compared to conventional MRI because it offers better image quality and significantly decreased exam times, researchers have reported in a study published in Radiology. Arrows indicate the acute infarction.

MRI Surveillance Associated with 80 Percent Reduction in Breast Cancer Mortality for Women with BRCA1

Diagnostic Imaging

In a study of nearly 2,500 women with BRCA1 or BRCA2 sequence variations, researchers found that MRI surveillance led to a 3.2 percent mortality risk for those who did not have MRI surveillance. percent breast cancer mortality risk at 20 years in contrast to a 14.9

PI-RADS optimizes MRI-based diagnostics for prostate cancer detection

AuntMinnie

To address the knowledge gap, the team evaluated the benefit of using PI-RADS upgrading rules with MRI-directed diagnostic sequences. Thadeu de Oliveira Correia and colleagues conducted research that included 716 patients without known prostate cancer who underwent prostate MRI followed by biopsy between January 2016 and May 2020.

MRI Research Suggests Link Between COVID-19 Related Brain Fog and Blood-Brain Barrier Dysfunction

Diagnostic Imaging

For people with COVID-19 related brain fog, emerging dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI (DCE-MRI) research findings revealed blood-brain barrier disruption in multiple brain regions, including temporal lobes and the frontal cortex, up to a year after active infection.

MRI radiomics shows potential in determining breast cancer HER2 status

AuntMinnie

MRI radiomics features can differentiate breast cancers based on human epidermal growth factor receptors (HERs), according to research published January 24 in the American Journal of Roentgenology. Previous studies have explored the potential MRI radiomics models in identifying breast cancer HER2 expression status. Sensitivity 99.4%
