The impact of trained radiographers as concurrent readers on performance and reading time of experienced radiologists in the UK Lung Cancer Screening (UKLS) trial

Objectives To compare radiologists’ performance reading CTs independently with their performance using radiographers as concurrent readers in lung cancer screening. Methods 369 consecutive baseline CTs performed for the UK Lung Cancer Screening (UKLS) trial were double-read by radiologists reading either independently or concurrently with a radiographer. In concurrent reading, the ...

Non-small-cell lung cancer resectability: diagnostic value of PET/MR

Purpose To assess the diagnostic performance of PET/MR in patients with non-small-cell lung cancer. Methods Fifty consecutive consenting patients who underwent routine 18F-FDG PET/CT for potentially radically treatable lung cancer following a staging CT scan were recruited for PET/MR imaging on the same day. Two experienced readers, unaware of the results with the other modalities, ...

Areas of normal pulmonary parenchyma on HRCT exhibit increased FDG PET signal in IPF patients

Purpose Patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) show increased PET signal at sites of morphological abnormality on high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT). The purpose of this investigation was to investigate the PET signal at sites of normal-appearing lung on HRCT in IPF. Methods Consecutive IPF patients (22 men, 3 women) were prospectively recruited. The patients ...
