Virtual Colonoscopy

Medical imaging of the rectum and colon is used for screening and evaluation of cancer, traditional barium enema; endosonography and colonoscopy were the available facilities to perform such examination.

Virtual colonoscopy is a modern medical imaging technique that became

available due to advanced technology and software rendering over the

computed tomography images. Virtual colonoscopy provides an easier and

faster screening medical imaging technique for suspicious and…

Radiology RVU - Measuring productivity

(DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING) --"Measuring Productivity by RVU"

 

The most common complaint amongst physicians in our practice is that someone is working harder than someone else. It’s a contest no one wins.

 

We’ve looked at several ways to measure productivity and decided that relative value units (RVUs) are the best option for us. The practice has not used an incentive model for bonus distribution based on RVUs to date, although that was one of the…

MR Imaging of peri-anal Fistula

Imaging of the peri-anal fistulas is markedly demanded recently to

assess the clinical condition and per-operative assessment. As regards

the ordinary radiographic examinations could not correctly evaluate the

disease and provide the accurate classification needed by the surgeon,

multiple tries with various techniques including ultrasound and computed

tomography are done. Still, MRI has proved to be the best modality to

assess the peri-anal fistulas due to its… Continue

Cancer risk from CTs not as high as previously thought, study finds

(DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING) -- Patients’ risk of developing cancer from CT scans is not as high as previously thought, but the rate still doubled over the time period studied, according to a study presented Wednesday at the RSNA meeting.



Many studies have examined cancer risk from radiation, usually drawing on data from people exposed to high amounts of it, such as from the atomic bomb or radiotherapy. The current study, by Dr. Pat Basu, a radiologist at Stanford University and a White… Continue
