Just like the new innovations in medical and healthcare field, radiology is heading into an advanced phase with several latest imaging technologies. In the past few decades, radiology imaging has become more precise, advanced and successful. The newest radio imaging techniques can determine everything from a minor ligament fracture to cell malignancy just within a fraction of minutes. With the new technology advancements in place, radiology imaging has now reached the acme of healthcare imaging field.
Some of the latest processes in radiology imaging now also include radiology-based surgeries. Based on a recently published report by Phillips, the next generation neurosurgery now can happen through radiology techniques in an intra-operative surgical room. This process will also include the picture archiving and communication system or PACS to help surgeons and physicians in performing the corrective surgery or in diagnosis.
CT imaging is in existence for years now. However, the new advancements in CT imaging have made the process simpler and effective. Unlike the image quality of the old CT scans, the newest imaging reports are clear and include all small details. Mammogram advancements are also some of the latest innovations in radiology. Breast density software and ultrasound are two main keys in mammography. New studies regarding mammogram were presented at the RSNA 2012. The imaging technology now uses the newest version of software, which in turn makes the healthcare imaging and diagnostic probes more lucid.
Other advancements in this field do include the wireless transducer, peri-operative MRI, OLED displays, noiseless scanning and MRI, and 640-slice CT scanner. Further innovations in this imaging field include radiation dose monitoring and usage of flat-panel monitors. Improper dose of radiation can cause adverse effects in a person as well. Thus, the dose monitoring technique will now help many surgeons and radiologists to find an optimal dose for the person undergoing the radiology imaging test. Similarly, the wireless ultrasound system makes it easy for the radiologists to perform the tests as per the convenience of the patients. The medical grade LCD monitors offer high resolution images in contrast to the old generation scanner displays. Using the newest technology-based processes in imaging is also to make the radiology imaging and diagnosing an efficient and a cost-effective diagnostic solution for people.
