MDCTA for diagnosing infrapopliteal impairment
Multidetector computed tomography angiography (MDCTA) and magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) both show good diagnostic performance in patients with peripheral arterial disease. However, there are site-specific differences.

A holistic model of patient experience in radiologic care
A preliminary model combines process-related issues and patient perception to generate a patient-centered perspective of the complete radiologic examination process.

Radiomics: Quantitative analysis on a large scale
Radiomics, the quantitative analysis of large amounts of imaging data, will greatly influence radiology and contribute to the improvement of patient care and outcome.

There is more than just CT for lung nodules
CT remains the method of choice for pulmonary nodule detection. However, data shows that MRI might serve as an equivalent detection and surveillance tool.

Incidental findings in ED imaging – adhere to the guidelines!
Adherence to consensus management guidelines is not always a given for the treatment of incidental imaging findings in the emergency department. This leads to inappropriate treatment suggestions.

Radiologic errors – why they occur and how to avoid them
Radiologists play an essential role in diagnosis in an emergency setting. Knowledge, experience and the correct application of imaging protocols are mandatory to decrease errors.

Alone is good – together is better
Physicians are the ones to communicate radiation risks to their patients in an emergency setting. Radiologists can support this communication. They may provide the referring physician with helpful and reliable information.

Rapid MRI equals CT in pediatric head trauma evaluation
A rapid MRI protocol provides high-quality images for brain injury detection in children. The technique could replace the radiation-based CT in follow-up examinations.

Contrast reactions and epinephrine
Regular training for recognizing severe contrast reactions and giving the right epinephrine treatment is crucial for patient safety.

A cut-off value for liver lesion distinction
A cut-off value for relative signal intensity might enable fast and reliable distinction between hypo- and iso- or hyperintense liver lesions in Gd-EOB-DTPA enhanced MRI.

Being prepared for mass casualties
The radiology department is crucial for providing the best medical help in case of mass casualty incidents. Whole-body CT examinations allow correct diagnosis and triage of the incoming patients.
