ECR 2018: First impressionsMarch 27, 2018ECR 2018 celebrated the diverse specialty of radiology with a symbolic Chinese red dragon centered at the entrance, capturing the enthusiasm, celebration, and passion for radiology at the Austria Centre Vienna.The heightened pressures to maintain population health globally, without clinical practice and patient outcome being jeopardized, has stipulated the rapid surge in artificial intelligence (AI) related solutions, to shape the future of radiology and patient care. But how can better clinical outcome be achieved outside of Artificial Intelligence?
How will the increase in global breast cancer be addressed by a decrease in false positives?March 14, 2018The countable rise of breast cancer incidence globally has heightened pressures for government screening programmes, and strengthened awareness of the benefits of breast cancer screening. However, screening programmes alone are not sufficient to help combat breast cancer mortality rates. It is imperative that accuracy of breast cancer detection is improved, whilst false positives and missed lesions are also reduced.
Interventional X-ray equipment – Dose aware or financial affair?September 18, 2017In the current global healthcare environment, providers are increasingly obliged to balance tight financial budgets whilst ensuring that patient care is not jeopardised. There are large regional and country-specific differences in what determines the decision-making process when purchasing interventional X-ray equipment. A combination of healthcare budget restrictions, political instability and economic crises has heightened consideration of the price of interventional X-ray systems. Regulatory pressures and guidelines on dose requirements fuel the demand for interventional X-ray equipment with higher image quality and lower dose features, in addition to dose monitoring features.
Interventional X-ray Equipment : Are advances in technology driving demand for interventional procedures or are interventional procedures driving demand for technology advances?August 14, 2017The relationship between interventional X-ray procedures and interventional X-ray equipment is interchangeable in terms of where the influences lie. Demand for interventional X-ray systems is largely influenced by procedural developments and the reimbursement available for them. However, some complex interventional procedures would not be able to be performed without advances being made in interventional X-ray technology.
