Teresa G Odle
Screening mammography introduces low doses of radiation per examination and in regular intervals over decades for women who have annual screening. Further, advanced breast imaging modalities and follow-up imaging methods contribute to additional radiation exposure in radiosensitive breast tissue. This article reviews the effects of radiation on the breasts, summarizes dose measurements and estimates for breast imaging modalities, and discusses efforts to optimize dose in breast imaging.

Osteoporosis is a systemic skeletal disease involving reduced bone mass and structural deterioration of bone tissue. The use of dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) for evaluating bone mass in geriatric patients is well established. However, radiologic technologists also might conduct DXA examinations on younger adults and children. This article discusses diagnosis of osteoporosis and alternative indications for clinical use of DXA.

Kevin R Clark
Earthquakes are a devastating phenomena of nature, causing significant destruction and extensive damage. Most earthquake-related injuries result from collapsing buildings, flying debris, and falling objects. Medical imaging modalities, in particular digital radiography, computed tomography, and sonography, are used to help manage and treat patients injured during an earthquake. Therefore, health care providers, including radiologic technologists, must be aware of the imaging considerations associated with earthquake-related injuries...

PURPOSE: To evaluate mammographers' acceptance of the breast cancer risk assessment software tool MammoRisk (Statlife) in the clinical setting. METHODS: During a 6-month period, 1200 women undergoing routine mammography examinations at a regional, outpatient, comprehensive breast imaging center were assessed for breast cancer risk by mammographers who used the MammoRisk software. At the end of the 6-month period, the mammographers (N = 11) completed an 8-question survey on their willingness to the use of the software in the clinical setting...

PURPOSE: To investigate and establish reasons for the smaller but increasing population of female radiographers in Ghana, and to evaluate the motivating and demotivating contributory factors associated with women's choice of the profession. METHODS: A descriptive quantitative survey design and a purposive sampling technique were used to recruit participants from hospitals, clinics, and private imaging centers in Ghana. Forty registered female radiographers were invited to participate in the survey, and 30 participants completed and returned the questionnaires...

Breast inflammation can signal an array of breast conditions, from difficulties with breastfeeding to a rare and aggressive type of breast cancer. In some cases, these diseases resemble each other clinically and on imaging examinations. This article explains the inflammatory process and discusses a variety of localized benign inflammatory breast diseases, including lactational and nonlactational mastitis, ductal ectasia, idiopathic granulomatous mastitis, fat necrosis, and diabetic mastopathy. Inflammatory breast cancer also is presented, with an emphasis on its signs and symptoms, diagnosis, staging, multimodality treatment, and prognosis...

Computed tomography (CT) is a technical and complex diagnostic imaging modality. Radiologic technologists must understand the technology well enough to optimize dose and image quality and provide excellent patient care. This article reviews essential physical principles and technical aspects of CT, including physics related to radiation attenuation and CT numbers along with general technical concepts. In addition, the article reviews multislice CT technology.

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase

"primary prevention of cancer"
(heart or cardiac or cardio*) AND arrest -"American Heart Association"
