Diagnostic Imaging - Science topic
Diagnostic Imaging is an any visual display of structural or functional patterns of organs or tissues for diagnostic evaluation. It includes measuring physiologic and metabolic responses to physical and chemical stimuli, as well as ultramicroscopy.
Questions related to Diagnostic Imaging
Which journals of radiology and nuclear medicine allow free submission of articles.
I need a dermoscopic image database to test an algorithm for automatic diagnose. In particular I am interested in images with blue-black colors within the lesion.
Can anyone tell me where to find it?
what can be the best test to diagnose chronic pancreatitis ?
Is there any specific disease among army personals (e.g soldiers, pilots, ...) which could be diagnosed by structural MRI scans?
Or can structural MRI scans be useful for screening purposes among army personals?
I am looking for recent information (literature, data, preliminary experiments) on the effects of radiation dose in reptiles. Any information on lethal dose (LD), and symptoms of radiation 'overdose' would be highly appreciated.
I have been contacted to solicit for doctors specialized in nuclear medicine (medical radiotherapy, diagnostic imaging, etc). Please contact me: Dr M. ElFadl

I'm on the editorial panel of a set of guidelines for rational use of diagnostic imaging: http://imagingpathways.health.wa.gov.au/ It is quite algorithmic in style and I feel that sometimes in "grey areas" it offers apparently black-and-white advice on whether to image or not. I wonder if in some of these cases we might more explicitly suggest clinicians discuss the low probability of meaningful yield from investigating, and tailor the decision to the patient's own values. I wonder, if we decide to try to do that, how it might best be done. Any examples or suggestions would be welcome.
What do you think diagnosis of this brain MRI?
5-year-old male who have global developmental delay.
4 years ago, these white- spot- lesions were not well seen as much at MRI. In two cuts below (first and second images), there are a few at the posterior horn which are quite much now.
There is no definite history of intrauterine infection or fever after birth. No seizure. He has GDD and he can't talk any meaningful word. He has no skin lesion. He can walk but, needs side bar to stair up and down.
Images are added. T2 axial and T1 sagittal cuts.
More things added--------------------------
Clinical photo was added.
The child had hypertelorism, delayed dentition for permanent teeth (about a year?? I'm not sure). Prominent zygomas are similar with his mom.
Now(2016) he entered school(special education), but still, he is not able to speak any meaningful word. He don't have any skin lesion nor seizure.
I asked to bring him to hospital where could evaluate broad metabolic diseases but they didn't. So I'm asking again with his picture. I've got permission for taking a photo but not for uploading to this place. So I ask to all of you not to take photo to elsewhere, please. Thank you for considering privacy of a child.
What is your usual diagnostic imaging for appendicitis? Do you use US scan or CT scan as first investigation?
I cannot use congo red. do you know any alternatives?
There are still many limitations in a transcatheter closure of post-MI septal defect including the rigid delivery sheath that could tear the borders of VSD or dislocation of sheath into the right ventricle after wire removal. Also, currently available occluders are suboptimal.
We intend to study the compliance of our local practice to recommended international standards.
Trying to figure out if these babies are at risk for esophageal stricture or pulmonary scarring.
I spent a lot of time looking for it, thanks a lot in advance
Shielding design goals are used in the design or evaluation of barriers constructed for the protection of patients, staff and the general public.
2) Does the use of ECT introduce any Artifacts?
3) How can the use of ECT function be positive or detrimental to the AC factors?
For AC CT, it's my understanding that a proper HU differentiation will transpose into a more accurate SUV. For instance, if you utilize "Extended CT Scale", it will enable you to accurately differentiate between e.g a calcification in close proximity to bone chip, for which under normal scenario (without Extended CT scale) will amount into HU averaging and ultimately into a "Higher" SUV values due to "High HU" or narrow "Gray Scale". This scenario including that caused by Metal artifacts (High HU) in the vicinity of equally high HU lesions, is what Extended CT Scale is expected to resolve.
Fiesta or t2wi mri is considered to be the diagnostic modality.
