Imaging Pediatric Bone Tumors.
Abstract Primary bone tumors are the sixth most common type of tumor diagnosed in children. When evaluating bone lesions, specific characteristics-tumor margin, pattern of bone destruction, periosteal reaction, presence or absence of soft tissue mass, lesion location, and type of matrix present-must be considered to distinguish between benign and malignant tumors. Radiography is the most valuable diagnostic tool for initial diagnosis of bone tumors; however, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging are vital for establishing tumor invasion and staging of malignant lesions.

Comparing 10 kVp and 15% Rules in Extremity Radiography.
CONCLUSION: Results demonstrated that both the 15% rule and the 10 kVp rule successfully maintained or slightly improved image quality according to the detector exposure indicators. The results also demonstrated lowered patient dose according to the entrance skin doses. Based on these results, the 10 kVp rule might be a reasonable substitute for the 15% rule. Further research should be conducted with more repetitions that include digital radiography equipment for a wider range of examinations.

Imaging Acute and Chronic Wrist Conditions.
Abstract Imaging of the wrist is common across many medical imaging modalities. It is important that radiologic technologists understand wrist anatomy and common indications for wrist imaging. The radiocarpal joint commonly is fractured, dislocated, or both, especially among children and older adults, and radiographs typically are ordered first to evaluate wrist pain after a fall. In addition to traumatic injuries, chronic wrist pain leads providers to order medical imaging examinations. Technologists should be familiar with the proper positioning and techniques required to produce high-quality diagnostic wrist im...

Dual-Energy CT Principles and Applications.
Abstract X-ray spectra consist of high- and low-energy components that interact differently with atomic components of tissues and materials in the human body. Dual-energy computed tomography (CT) uses these differences to produce detailed anatomic and functional images not possible with traditional single-energy CT. Dual-energy CT can digitally subtract materials and tissues from images and enhance iodine contrast without the added image noise typical with low-energy settings. Techniques such as iterative reconstruction with postprocessing algorithms can improve image quality and provide more information without i...

Radiation Protection and Safety in Interventional Radiology.
Abstract Interventional radiology procedures are targeted therapeutic procedures that can be performed on any body system and are a minimally invasive alternative to open or laparoscopic surgery. However, as with any procedure that uses ionizing radiation, risks are involved for the patient and the personnel performing the procedures. Deterministic and stochastic effects are possible, with the most common injury to patients being skin damage and the most common injury to personnel being cataracts. Along with traditional radiation protection methods, medical staff can take additional steps during these procedures t...

Alcohol Consumption and Associated Cancers.
Abstract An association between alcohol consumption, including low and moderate amounts, and an increased risk of cancer development is not widely known. However, literature suggests that consuming alcohol is linked to cancers of the mouth, pharynx, larynx, esophagus, liver, colon and rectum, and female breast. In general, higher alcohol consumption is associated with increased cancer risk. To provide proper education and better quality care to the patients they serve, health care providers must understand current literature regarding alcohol-related cancers.

Computed Tomography in Stroke Diagnosis, Assessment, and Treatment.
Abstract Stroke is the second leading cause of death worldwide, with more than 5.5 million deaths annually. Imaging is required before treating a stroke, and imaging techniques assist in diagnosis and treatment decisions. Computed tomography (CT) is the most common diagnostic tool for suspected stroke because of its affordability, wide availability, and speed of acquiring images. Mobile stroke units bring CT directly to the patient. PMID: 32381677 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Radiologic Technology)
