"Error Bars" in Medical Imaging: Stealth and Treacherous.

07:00 EST 1st November 2015 | BioPortfolio

Summary of ""Error Bars" in Medical Imaging: Stealth and Treacherous."

Given the critical role that diagnostic radiology has in patient care, it is important for providers and patients to understand the level of certainty associated with imaging. Over-reliance on imaging and failure to appreciate its limitations can lead to unforeseen consequences. Further, there are uncertainties and inconsistencies in the manner in which imaging-based information is considered, communicated, and applied. There are opportunities to alter practice to maximize comprehension of radiologic reports and thus optimize the manner in which imaging-based information is applied clinically. (©) RSNA, 2015.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.

Information systems, usually computer-assisted, that enable providers to initiate medical procedures, prescribe medications, etc. These systems support medical decision-making and error-reduction during patient care.

A type of MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING that uses only one nuclear spin excitation per image and therefore can obtain images in a fraction of a second rather than the minutes required in traditional MRI techniques. It is used in a variety of medical and scientific applications.

Deviation or aberration in the practical implementation of standard empirical procedures, distinct from MEDICAL ERRORS and SCIENTIFIC MISCONDUCT.

The use of combination of imaging techniques or platforms (e.g., MRI SCAN and PET SCAN) encompassing aspects of anatomical, functional, or molecular imaging methods.
