Despite advances in breast cancer screening, diagnosis, and treatment, nearly 12% of patients with a diagnosis of breast cancer eventually develop metastatic disease, or breast cancer that has spread beyond the breast to other parts of the body. No cure for metastatic breast cancer yet exists, and it is associated with a poor prognosis: The 5-year survival rate is 26%. Nevertheless, many treatments can improve and extend the lives of patients with metastatic breast cancer. This article reviews the types of breast cancer and cancer staging systems...

Bryant Furlow
Three-dimensional printing is used in the manufacturing industry, medical and pharmaceutical research, drug production, clinical medicine, and dentistry, with implications for precision and personalized medicine. This technology is advancing the development of patient-specific prosthetics, stents, splints, and fixation devices and is changing medical education, treatment decision making, and surgical planning. Diagnostic imaging modalities play a fundamental role in the creation of 3-D printed models. Although most 3-D printed objects are rigid, flexible soft-tissue-like prosthetics also can be produced...

Jennifer Hinners
Vertebral osteomyelitis is a rare but serious infectious disease that causes inflammation and destruction of the spinal vertebrae. Prompt diagnosis and treatment are essential to avoid adverse outcomes. This article reviews risk factors for vertebral osteomyelitis, disease mechanisms, signs and symptoms, and diagnostic criteria. Medical imaging techniques for vertebral osteomyelitis are a main focus, and treatment, prognosis, and possible complications also are discussed. Finally, the special case of pediatric patients with vertebral osteomyelitis is presented...

Benjamin W Roberts
Some suggest radiation safety is evolving from a provider-centered process to a more patient-centered approach. This shift places additional responsibility on radiologic technologists to educate patients about the possible risks and benefits of medical radiation exposure so patients can be equal partners in their care. This article discusses the ethics of radiation protection and the development of the patient-centered approach, and the radiologic technologist's role in ensuring patient-centered radiation safety is addressed...

PURPOSE: To discuss current literature evaluating the medial clavicular epiphysis to assess an individual's age using various imaging modalities. METHODS: Four scholarly research databases were searched to find studies that examined living subjects. Several articles were included that used cadavers, and a textbook was used to detail the anatomy of the clavicle. Thirty-nine articles were analyzed. RESULTS: The literature indicated that several imaging modalities, including conventional radiography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance, and sonography, are being used to evaluate the medial clavicular epiphysis to estimate an individual's age in the forensic context...

PURPOSE: To assess characteristics of computed tomography (CT) facilities accredited by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) and evaluate the perceived effect of accreditation on CT radiation dose awareness and reduction. METHODS: IAC-accredited CT facilities were sent a survey in April 2016, which included 20 questions categorized into 5 groups: equipment and facility (7), patient safety/practice (5), protocols (2), dose reduction practice (3), and quality improvement (3)...
