The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced its latest efforts in supporting the Bonn Call for Action, an international list of priorities for radiation protection in medicine for the next decade.

A new study published online in the journal Radiology found a substantial gap between patient expectations and current practices for providing information about medical imaging tests that use radiation. Researchers said the findings highl...

Scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory  have uncovered new clues about the risk of cancer from low-dose radiation. In this research, low-dose is defined as equivalent to 100 millisieverts or roug...

Results from the PROMISE clinical trial confirmed what many cardiologists and radiologists have long suspected to be true: Coronary computed tomographic angiography (coronary CTA) is extraordinarily effective in accurately diagnosing patients with...
