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.

Error is inherent in radiological practice. Our awareness of the extent of this and the reasons behind it has increased in recent times. Our next step must be the development of a shared understanding...
Erich arch bars, 4-point fixation, and bone-supported arch bars are currently used in maxillomandibular fixation, although to what extent they differ in terms of overall charges and clinical outcomes ...
PET imaging captures the metabolic activity of tissues and is commonly visually interpreted by clinicians for detecting cancer, assessing tumor progression, and evaluating response to treatment. To au...

The investigators propose an efficacy study (i.e., do salad bars work under controlled conditions in naturalistic settings) to test whether introducing salad bars in elementary, middle, an...
The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of changing the amounts of resistant starch, whey protein and sugar on the blood glucose and insulin responses elicited by energy bars...
The effect of beta-glucan or fructo-oligosaccharide or their combination in bars on satiety and food intake was tested by supplying these bars on two consecutive days.

External ventricular drain (EVD) placement is performed very often in neurosurgical practices. EVD's are most commonly placed at the bedside using external anatomical landmarks to guide th...
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.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
