    Coronary CTA With AI-QCT Interpretation

    Coronary CTA With AI-QCT Interpretation

    Full article: https://www.ajronline.org/doi/abs/10.2214/AJR.21.27289  Rosalind Gerson, PGY3, discusses a study that compared the diagnostic performance of stress myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) and CT Angiography with AI-Quantitative CT (CTA + AI-QCT) in detecting obstructive coronary artery stenosis, with invasive angiography serving as the reference standard. CTA + AI-QCT demonstrated better diagnostic performance than MPI. Modelling of diagnostic algorithms showed that incorporating CTA+AI-QCT reduced both costs and rates of invasive testing.

    Hepatic Artery Guidewire for TIPS Creation

    Hepatic Artery Guidewire for TIPS Creation

    Full article: https://www.ajronline.org/doi/abs/10.2214/AJR.22.27675 
    The key step in the creation of a transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) is the needle puncture from a hepatic vein to a portal vein. This can be challenging in patients with portal vein thrombosis, where the portal vein is poorly visualized. Liwei Jiang, MD, discusses a feasibility study that employs a previously described technique of placing a guidewire into the right hepatic artery to serve as a landmark for the target portal vein.

    Deep Learning-Based Algorithm to Reduce Radiation Dose in Pediatric CTs

    Deep Learning-Based Algorithm to Reduce Radiation Dose in Pediatric CTs

    Full article: https://www.ajronline.org/doi/full/10.2214/AJR.21.27255 
    Radiation safety is important, particularly in pediatric imaging. Viet Le, MD discusses an article that demonstrates how a deep learning-based algorithm reduces radiation dose in pediatric CTs compared to current techniques without loss of image quality.

    I’ve Fallen and I Can’t Get Up: To Scan or Not to Scan?

    I’ve Fallen and I Can’t Get Up: To Scan or Not to Scan?

    Full article: https://www.ajronline.org/doi/abs/10.2214/AJR.21.27274 
    Ground-level fall is a common injury in older patients and a frequent cause of ED visits. These low impact falls may lead to intracranial hemorrhage, which is a particular concern in patients on antithrombotic therapy. In this episode, Sara Tedla MD, discusses a recently published study in AJR, which evaluates traumatic intracranial hemorrhage on CT after minor head trauma in adult patients on antithrombotic therapy.
