Pediatric Radiography Education: A Survey of Recent Graduates' Experiences.
CONCLUSION: Although most entry-level radiographers in this study considered their preparation for pediatric imaging satisfactory, they also strongly believed that additional pediatric-specific training would benefit future radiographers. Radiography educators should consider various opportunities to enhance the pediatric imaging curriculum and encourage or require clinical rotations in pediatric facilities. Further research that addresses educators' perceptions of pediatric radiography instruction might be warranted. PMID: 31471475 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Radiologic Technology)

Imaging and the Lung Transplant Patient.
Abstract Lung transplantation can prolong and improve quality of life for patients affected by end-stage lung disease. Potential lung transplant patients undergo a rigorous preoperative assessment that includes multiple medical imaging studies. These studies provide information that help physicians determine whether the patient is a surgical candidate, as well as the surgical technique that should be used during transplantation. Imaging studies also are used in long-term care to detect complications in patients after lung transplantation. PMID: 31471476 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Radiologic Technology)

Radiation Physics, Biology, and Protection.
Abstract During initial education for primary pathway certification, radiologic science professionals learn the physics of the electromagnetic spectrum, mass, and energy. They also learn the principles of x-ray production (including requisite background information in general physics), human biology, radiation biology, and radiation protection. This information can be forgotten as time lengthens from initial learning, and reviewing these topics reminds technologists of the basic premise on which the profession is founded.

Artificial Intelligence in Medical Imaging.
Abstract Artificial intelligence (AI) has existed for decades and continues to evolve as technology advances. In health care, AI can be used to simplify the check-in process for patients, make patient records more efficient, monitor disease, aid diagnosis, assist in surgical procedures, and offer mental health therapy. In radiology, AI assists in multiple processes including scheduling patients, billing, optimizing staffing, creating protocols, assessing image quality, reducing radiation dose, and image interpretation. AI is not something to be feared, as it will not replace humans; rather, it should be embraced f...

Computed Tomography of Femoral Anteversion in Children With Cerebral Palsy.
Abstract Cerebral palsy (CP) is a common childhood disability that affects musculoskeletal development. In particular, CP might contribute to increased femoral anteversion and associated difficulties in ambulation, increasing the risk of hip dysplasia and dislocation. Computed tomography provides useful information about the effects of CP on the anatomy and functionality of the femur and hip joint. Radiologic technologists should work collaboratively with other health care professionals to empower patients with CP and their caregivers to improve quality of life.

Piston-Based vs Peristaltic Pump-Based CT Injector Systems.
Abstract PURPOSE: To compare the fluid delivery performance of 2 different technologies for administration of iodinated contrast media in computed tomography (CT). METHODS: The maximum achievable flow rate and the steady-state flow rate variance of a piston-based contrast media injector system (Stellant MP, MEDRAD) was compared with peristaltic pump-based injector systems (CT motion, Ulrich Medical; CT Exprès, Bracco). The contrast media iopromide (Ultravist) and iopamidol (Isovue) were used at 2 concentrations each (300 and 370 mg I/mL) and 3 catheter sizes (18, 20, and 22 G) to test the injector perf...

The Role of Medical Imaging in Clinical Research.
Abstract Medical imaging is crucial for scientific research, and radiologic technologists who aspire for a career in research must understand the scientific process, the types of studies conducted, and the requirements for conducting a study. The role of radiologic technologists in a research setting differs from their role in the clinical setting, and additional training might be required. Many U.S. imaging research centers have state-of-the-art equipment, and the modalities they most often use include magnetic resonance, computed tomography, nuclear medicine, sonography, interventional radiology, and fusion moda...
