Validation of accelerated 4D flow MRI sequences

This study compared four-dimensional (4D) flow to standard two-dimensional (2D) flow sequences in order to determine whether 4D flow can reduce scan time with equivalent image quality and accuracy, but found no significant difference compared to the 2D flow. Article:...

3D printing for heart valve disease

Inspired by the fast-increasing use of three-dimensional (3D) printing for medical purposes, this review evaluates the currently available literature on the use of 3D printing in the management of cardiac valve disease. Article: 3D printing for heart valve disease: a...

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...
