3D CNNs applied to CT angiography in acute ischemic stroke

The goal of this study was to examine whether computed tomography angiography source images obtained through three-dimensional convolutional neural networks can help detect ischemic stroke. Article: 3D convolutional neural networks applied to CT angiography in the...

Compressed sensing and parallel MRI for bowel motility imaging

The authors analysed compressed sensing and parallel imaging (CS-PI)-accelerated bowel motility magnetic resonance imaging. They also compared its image and diagnostic quality to conventional sensitivity encoding (SENSE) accelerated scans and found no advantages of...

Predicting event-free survival in children with neuroblastic tumours

The authors of this study examined the potential use of diffusion-weighted imaging for non-invasive prediction of tumour dignity and prognosis in paediatric patients with neuroblastic tumours. Article: Quantitative DWI predicts event-free survival in children with...

Evolution of prostate MRI

Using the available evidence and the evolution of PI-RADS, the authors reviewed the main technical strategies proposed as less-is-better solutions for clinical practice. The study also summarised research results on advanced techniques which represent an alternative...

Osteoplasty on long bone diaphyses undergoing bending stress

This study evaluated the biomechanical properties of osteoplasty alone and in combination with Kirschner wires in a cadaveric human diaphyseal model undergoing 3-point bending stress. Article: Biomechanical effects of osteoplasty with or without Kirschner wire...
