Symptoms start out similar to the common cold but then progress to coughing, wheezing and sometimes even difficulty breathing, according to the Mayo Clinic. Complications of severe bronchiolitis can range from a lack of oxygen that turn a child's lips or skin blue called cyanosis to dehydration and respiratory failure.

Researchers are using artificial intelligence to reduce the dose of a contrast agent that may be left behind in the body after MRI exams, according to a study being presented today at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA).
An unusually bright, or hyperechoic, deltoid muscle on ultrasound may be a result of insulin resistance and thus a sign of diabetes, according to a new study. In patients without diabetes, the deltoid is typically hypoechoic relative to the underlying supraspinatus tendon, researchers noted in a presentation November 26 at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2018 Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting in Chicago.
The International Contrast Ultrasound Society (ICUS) applauds the announcement of dramatic changes in payment for contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) imaging of the abdomen. The changes, which will go into effect in the U.S. on January 1, 2019, include a new "Category I" CPT code to support the use of CEUS for non-cardiac abdominal imaging.
Researchers at University Putra Malaysia found a relationship between some markers of inflammation in the body and the aggressiveness of certain malignant tumors. They conducted full body scans of 31 people with malignant tumours—including cancers of the lung, esophagus, colon, and breast—using a machine that combines positron emission and computed tomography (PET/CT).
In a matter of seconds, a new algorithm read chest X-rays for 14 pathologies, performing as well as radiologists in most cases, a Stanford-led study says. A new artificial intelligence algorithm can reliably screen chest X-rays for more than a dozen types of disease, and it does so in less time than it takes to read this sentence, according to a new study led by Stanford University researchers.
One day, MRI brain scans may help predict whether older people will develop dementia, new research suggests. In a small study, MRI brain scans predicted with 89 percent accuracy who would go on to develop dementia within three years, according to research at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and the University of California San Francisco
EXPLORER, the world's first medical imaging scanner that can capture a 3-D picture of the whole human body at once, has produced its first scans. The brainchild of UC Davis scientists Simon Cherry and Ramsey Badawi, EXPLORER is a combined positron emission tomography (PET) and x-ray computed tomography (CT) scanner that can image the entire body at the same time.
