British Thoracic Society guidelines for the investigation and management of pulmonary nodules: accredited by NICE
TLDR
This guideline is based on a comprehensive review of the literature on pulmonary nodules and expert opinion and provides more clarity in the use of further imaging and more clarity about the place of biopsy. Expand
Functional imaging for radiation treatment planning, response assessment, and adaptive therapy in head and neck cancer.
TLDR
The practical aspects of integrating functional imaging into head-and-neck radiation therapy planning are discussed and the potential of molecular imaging biomarkers for response assessment and therapy adaptation are reviewed. Expand
Delayed response assessment with FDG-PET-CT following (chemo) radiotherapy for locally advanced head and neck squamous cell carcinoma.
TLDR
The diagnostic accuracy of response assessment with FDG PET-CT performed at approximately 16 weeks post-(chemo)radiotherapy is good and the very high NPV of a complete metabolic response can be used to guide management decisions. Expand
Alterations in anatomic and functional imaging parameters with repeated FDG PET-CT and MRI during radiotherapy for head and neck cancer: a pilot study
TLDR
Multi-modality imaging during radiotherapy treatment demonstrates early changes in both anatomic and functional imaging parameters, which should be considered in combination to provide multi-parametric tumour assessment, to guide potential treatment adaptation strategies. Expand
Ultrasound, CT, MRI, or PET-CT for staging and re-staging of adults with cutaneous melanoma.
TLDR
The objective was to determine the diagnostic accuracy of ultrasound, CT, MRI, or PET-CT for whole body imaging (detection of any metastasis) in mixed or not clearly described populations of adults with cutaneous invasive melanoma. Expand
Who should have pelvic vessel imaging prior to renal transplantation?
Subesinghe M, Cherukuri A, Ecuyer C, Baker RJ. Who should have pelvic vessel imaging prior to renal transplantation?

No longer any role for routine follow-up chest x-rays in men with stage I germ cell cancer.
TLDR
With timely and appropriate modern cross-sectional imaging and tumour marker assays, the CXR no longer has any value in the routine surveillance of stage I testicular cancer and should be removed from follow-up guidelines and clinical practice. Expand
Multimodality imaging with CT, MR and FDG-PET for radiotherapy target volume delineation in oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma
TLDR
The use of different imaging modalities produced significantly different GTVs, with no single imaging technique encompassing all potential GTV regions, and data suggest delineation based on multimodality imaging has the potential to improve accuracy of GTV definition. Expand
Assessment of outcomes with delayed (18)F-FDG PET-CT response assessment in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma.
TLDR
F-FDG PET-CT is a valuable tool in guiding the selective use of neck dissection following (chemo)radiotherapy for head and neck squamous cell carcinoma and has a very high NPV 4 months post treatment. Expand
The proliferation of multidisciplinary team meetings (MDTMs): how can radiology departments continue to support them all?
TLDR
The MDTM is a challenging but worthwhile demand on the modern radiologist’s time and solutions to the increasing MDTM workload include demonstrating MDTM related benefits, improved efficiency, and accurate job planning. Expand
