Better Late Than Never Target Accelerating Program to Detect CreditCard Fraud

Register Now » Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global 3 min read February 4, 2014 Target says it is fast-tracking a program the will install chip-enabled smart cards to protect against cyber theft in stores across the U.S. The retailer, the third largest in America, was slammed with an extensive data breach during the holiday season that affected upwards of 70 million shoppers.In an op-ed published in The Hill yesterday, John Mulligan, Target’s chief financial officer, said that they company aims to have chip-enabled smart cards in stores by early 2015, six months earlier than orginally planned.The smart cards, Mulligan wrote, “have tiny microprocessor chips that encrypt the personal data shared with the sales terminals used by merchants…Even if a thief manages to steal a smart card number, it’s useless without the chip.”Related: Make It Stop: Yahoo Reports Coordinated Email HackThe adoption of the system, he continued, would be “one step American businesses could now take that would dramatically improve the security of all credit and debit cards.”Mulligan’s op-ed was conveniently timed. Today, he appears before the Senate Judiciary Committee to explain exactly how hackers gained access to payment data and/or personal information for millions of shoppers. (Congressmen have already blamed the attack on weak passwords in Target’s point-of-sale system).If it had been implemented earlier, smart card technology — which Mulligan noted is already widely used in the U.K. and Canada, where it has dramatically reduced credit card theft – could have prevented a lot of headaches (around 70 million, if I had to put a number on it).Related: Why Your Small Business Is at Risk of a Hack AttackSo why wasn’t it? The short answer: It was too expensive. “At Target, we’ve been working for years towards adoption of this technology,” Mulligan wrote. “About 10 years ago, Target piloted an early generation of the chip-enabled technology on the Target VISA REDcard, with mixed results.” Smart chips cost significantly more than store card-readers, so Target stopped the project.In his op-ed, Mulligan placed some of the responsibility – as well as some of the blame – on other retailers and companies who have also failed to install smart card technology.”If we truly want to prevent this from happening again, the business community must move together. No one company or industry can solve this challenge on its own. Strengthening consumer protection requires a coordinated response,” he wrote.” This is a shared responsibility.”Related: Target Chief Apologizes as ‘Holiday Hack’ Claims Yet Another Victimlast_img read more

CIA Sought to Hack Apple iPhones for Nearly a Decade

first_img This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. Enroll Now for Free This story originally appeared on Reuters CIA researchers have worked for nearly a decade to break the security protecting Apple phones and tablets, investigative news site The Intercept reported on Tuesday, citing documents obtained from NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.The report cites top-secret U.S. documents that suggest U.S. government researchers had created a version of XCode, Apple’s software application development tool, to create surveillance backdoors into programs distributed on Apple’s App Store.The Intercept has in the past published a number of reports from documents released by whistleblower Snowden. The site’s editors include Glenn Greenwald, who won a Pulitzer Prize for his work in reporting on Snowden’s revelations, and by Oscar-winning documentary maker Laura Poitras.It said the latest documents, which covered a period from 2006 to 2013, stop short of proving whether U.S. intelligence researchers had succeeded in breaking Apple’s encryption coding, which secures user data and communications.Efforts to break into Apple products by government security researchers started as early as 2006, a year before Apple introduced its first iPhone and continued through the launch of the iPad in 2010 and beyond, The Intercept said.Breeching Apple security was part of a top-secret program by the U.S. government, aided by British intelligence researchers, to hack “secure communications products, both foreign and domestic” including Google Android phones, it said.Silicon Valley technology companies have in recent months sought to restore trust among consumers around the world that their products have not become tools for widespread government surveillance of citizens.Last September, Apple strengthened encryption methods for data stored on iPhones, saying the changes meant the company no longer had any way to extract customer data on the devices, even if a government ordered it to with a search warrant. Silicon Valley rival Google Inc said shortly afterward that it also planned to increase the use of stronger encryption tools.Both companies said the moves were aimed at protecting the privacy of users of their products and that this was partly a response to wide scale U.S. government spying on Internet users revealed by Snowden in 2013.An Apple spokesman pointed to public statements by Chief Executive Tim Cook on privacy, but declined to comment further.”I want to be absolutely clear that we have never worked with any government agency from any country to create a backdoor in any of our products or services,” Cook wrote in a statement on privacy and security published last year. “We have also never allowed access to our servers. And we never will.”Leaders including U.S. President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron have expressed concern that turning such privacy-enhancing tools into mass market features could prevent governments from tracking militants planning attacks. The CIA did not immediately reply to a request for comment.(Editing by Jeremy Gaunt) 3 min read Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now March 10, 2015last_img read more

SBGuard AntiRansomware hardens Windows

first_imgSBGuard Anti-Ransomware hardens Windows by Martin Brinkmann on August 30, 2016 in Software – Last Update: May 22, 2018 – 46 commentsSBGuard Anti-Ransomware is a free program for Microsoft Windows devices that hardens the operating system to block ransomware attacks dead in their track.While there are plenty of anti-ransomware tools out there for the Windows operating system, there is little information about hardening the system to block ransomware from installing itself on it.SBGuard Anti-Ransomware tries to change that by offering an on/off solution that applies around 700 Registry entries to the Windows Registry that limit software execution.It injects around 700 registry entries to force Windows Group Policy to use inbuilt software execution restriction capabilities in certain locations and prevent certain file types from executing.Additionally, it blocks Windows Gadgets, and “several other system actions Ransomware will attempt to perform to encrypt the data”.If that sounds awfully vague, it is. One of the main issues with solutions like this is false positives. While the program may very well block most — the company claims all known and many future — ransomware attacks, you may experience issues running or installing legitimate software relying on functionality that is blocked.The only solution provided by the company that creates SBGuard Anti-Ransomware is to turn it off during installation of software to avoid issues related to it.Turning it off on the other hand means no protection while software is installed, so users better make sure the software is legitimate before performing the operation.The installation of SBGuard Anti-Ransomware should not pose any issues even  inexperienced users. Please note that it requires the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 to run. Also, you are required to enter an email address on the developer site to download the program. The download link is sent to the email address you enter.The program itself is dead easy to use. Start it with elevated rights after installation, and click on the enable or disable buttons to toggle the protection status of the operating system.There is also a handy restart button. You need to restart the computer before the changes take effect.As mentioned earlier, the program adds a number of restriction mechanisms and modifications to Windows using the Windows Registry. It is highly recommended to back up the Windows Registry, or even better, the whole system disk, before enabling the application’s protective features.The company behind the product released a demo video that showcases how ransomware is blocked after enabling the program’s protection on a Windows computer.SBGuard Anti-Ransomware protects against ransomware threats such as Cryptolocker, CryptoWAll, Teslacrypt, CTB-Locker, Zepto and others according to the company.It also mentions on the product page that it monitors ransomware development and will implement protective measures against new attack forms as soon as they become known.The program does not display notifications right now if the execution is blocked. A future update will introduce the feature and others, such as an option to run the program as a service for advanced security options.Closing WordsSBGuard Anti-Ransomware hardens Windows machines against ransomware attacks. In fact, it protects at least partially against other forms of malicious software as well, but is no replacement for anti-virus programs.The application could use a whitelist feature that enables you to allow programs to run while the protection is enabled.Also, the devs should consider publishing a list of changes that the program makes as many users and most admins won’t install it otherwise.Summary12345 Author Rating3.5 based on 6 votes Software Name SBGuard Anti-RansomwareOperating System WindowsSoftware Category SecurityLanding Page http://www.sydneybackups.com.au/sbguard-anti-ransomware/ Advertisementlast_img read more

ShutUp10 update with Lockscreen tweaks

first_imgShutUp10 update with Lockscreen tweaks by Martin Brinkmann on November 03, 2016 in Software – Last Update: November 19, 2016 – 16 commentsO&O ShutUp10 is one of many privacy tools created specifically for Windows 10’s operating system. All of these programs are designed to block Microsoft’s Windows 10 operating system from collecting and transferring data to Microsoft.Some go farther than that, by blocking advertisement and providing users with options to disable other privacy related settings.O&O ShutUp10 is a well designed program that lists all of its tweaks in a simple interface. Tweaks are filed in categories such as Windows Update, Privacy or Security, and listed with a short description and toggles.Note: O&O ShutUp10 does not need to be installed, you can run it from any location. It does require the Microsoft .Net Framework 4.x though, but that is part of Windows 10.O&O ShutUp10The toggles are color coded. Green indicates that the preferences has been adjusted for privacy, and red that it has not (the default Windows 10 state).Icons at the end of the line indicate whether the tweak is recommended, recommended but with limitations, or not recommended.The difference between the first two is that the list of recommended tweaks usually don’t interfere with system functionality while the latter may. If you disable Internet access of Windows Digital Rights Management for instance, you may not be able to play media that relies on it.A click on any preference opens a small text field below it with a short description of its purpose. It is recommended to make sure that you don’t need functionality before disabling the feature. While you can go ahead and undo the change should you run into any issues, you may save yourself from finding out which setting to restore when you do run into issues.The actions menu at the top enables you to apply changes quickly. You may use it to apply all recommended settings with two clicks, or apply all recommended and limited tweaks.There is also an option to load and save configuration files.The first time you apply a tweak during a session you are prompted to create a system restore point. This is recommended unless you have other means of restoring changes.Changes in version 1.4.1384.1The big new feature in O&O 1.4.1384.1 is the new lockscreen category. It contains four tweaks in total:Disable Windows Spotlight. Windows Spotlight pushes a new image to the lockscreen on a daily basis. Most images are taken from Bing while some may be advertisement (e.g. a great looking video game wallpaper).Disable fun facts, tips, tricks, and more on your lock screen. The feature may display tips about Windows 10 on the lock screen, but also advertisement at times.Do not display last users on lock screen. Hides the most recent users on the lock screen.Do not show user ID on lock screen. Hides the user ID so that it and the password need to be entered to sign in.Closing WordsO&O ShutUp10 is one of the easier to use Windows 10 privacy apps. It offers explanations for each setting, supports System Restore, and ships with recommendations on top of that. While it may not be the most complete software of its kind, it seems to cover all major areas well.Now You: Which privacy tweaks do you consider essential on Windows 10?SummaryArticle NameShutUp10 update with Lockscreen tweaksDescriptionThe updated O&O ShutUp10 privacy software for Windows 10 devices ships with a new lockscreen category among other improvements.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

How to use Digital Gift Cards on Steam

first_imgHow to use Digital Gift Cards on Steam by Martin Brinkmann on October 26, 2017 in Games, Misc – Last Update: January 04, 2018 – No commentsValve added the option to purchase digital gift cards to its Steam gaming platform recently which enables users to add funds to their friend’s account.The Steam platform supported physical gift cards for a long time. You could purchase a Steam gift card in retail outlets and online to add currency to an account’s wallet. The money was then available for purchases on the Steam platform.The digital gift card works differently. Since it is digital, there is no need to purchase it in retail stores or in online stores before use. Another difference is that you cannot buy digital gift cards for yourself as you can simply fill up your wallet directly on Steam without having to purchase a gift card (or use a physical gift card for that).Digital Gift Cards on Steam are designed solely for sending money to a friend on Steam.How to use Digital Gift Cards on SteamYou can purchase $5, $10, $25, $50 and $100 digital gift cards on Steam (different currencies depending on the region you are in of course).You may load the gift card page on the Steam website, or select Store > Gift Cards in the Steam client to get started.The process is made up of three steps:Select the desired gift card from the available selection.Select the friend that you want to gift it.Personalize the gift card with a custom name, message and signature.Review the purchase and select a payment method.An email message is sent to the selected friend, and the new gift card is also highlighted in the Steam client.The following restrictions and rules are in place:Digital Gift Cards can only be given to friends that have been your friend for at least three days.The monetary value of the gift card is added to the friend’s wallet automatically.Money is automatically converted to the user’s currency when the transfer completes.Declined gift cards are refunded, either to the original payment method if supported, or otherwise to your Steam wallet.It is still possible to gift virtual items such as games directly to friends. The new digital gift cards option adds another option to the gifting process.Tip: The Halloween Sale begins today. Check out our Steam Sales tips to make the most out of it.SummaryArticle NameHow to use Digital Gift Cards on SteamDescriptionValve added the option to purchase digital gift cards to its Steam gaming platform recently which enables users to add funds to their friend’s account.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

VidCutter review easy video cutting

first_imgVidCutter review: easy video cutting by Martin Brinkmann on November 17, 2017 in Software – Last Update: August 12, 2018 – 18 commentsVidCutter is a cross-platform software program for Windows, Mac and Linux devices that comes with tools to cut video and audio files.The program is not a full blown video editor but focuses on cutting media files exclusively. While that makes it less attractive to users who require other video editing tools as well, it is ideal for users who want to cut a video or audio file quickly and without having to read through hundred pages of documentation before they can even get started.The program is available for all supported operating systems. Binary versions are provided for Windows and Mac systems; Linux users get instructions on how to install the application on Linux devices and if the Linux version supports flatpacks, such a version is available as well.VidCutterVidCutter requires ffmpeg, at least on Windows where I ran it. You can grab ffmpeg builds here, and need to copy the binary files to the VidCutter directory so that they get picked up.The interface of VidCutter is divided into three main panes. There is the video preview pane, the clip index listing which highlights start and end times, and the bottom toolbar.You can load most media formats thanks to ffmpeg support and play these video or audio files directly in the interface; useful for previewing video and audio, and making sure that you have cut the video correctly.VidCutter shows a row of thumbnails underneath the two upper panes which you use for the cutting and for jumping to positions in the video. You can hide the thumbnails if you prefer that with a click on the toggle thumbnails button in the main interface.To cut a video, you’d simply select start and end positions for the cut jobs. What’s interesting here is that you can extract multiple clips this way from a single media file. Simply select multiple start and end positions.Click on “save media” to save the cut parts of the media file as a single file to the local system. Videos are saved in the same format as the original video, there is no option to convert the clipped parts of a video to another media format.You may enable the SmartCut feature in the preferences to enable frame-accurate mode. If you don’t VidCutter cuts at the nearest keyframe before and after the start and end markers. This is faster, but less precise.Tip: Check out these video editing programs as well:Cut videos with Lossless CutCute Video Audio Merger: combine video and audio on WindowsHow To Crop Videos With Free SoftwareClosing Words and verdictVitCutter is a straightforward, simply to use, video cutter for Windows, Mac and Linux devices. It is an ideal program for users who want to cut videos quickly without having to use a full blown video editor for that purpose.It takes a couple of minutes to cut a video using the program. Just load it, select start and end time for the cutting, play the video from those positions to make sure the cutting position is accurate, and save the new creation to your system.VidCutter lacks advanced options: there is no option to cut multiple parts at once or to save progress to continue the operation at a later point in time.Still, if all you require is some basic video cutting, VidCutter is certainly a program that you can do for the job.Summary12345 Author Rating3 based on 5 votes Software Name VidCutterSoftware Category MultimediaLanding Page https://github.com/ozmartian/vidcutter Advertisementlast_img read more

Disable Adobe Flash in Edge and IE

first_imgDisable Adobe Flash in Edge and IE by Martin Brinkmann on September 17, 2018 in Internet Explorer – 9 commentsMicrosoft integrated Adobe Flash natively in newer versions of the Windows operating system so that the built-in web browsers Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge can make use of it automatically.The approach offers some benefits: first that Microsoft is in charge when it comes to updates for Adobe Flash, and second that the browsers are compatible with Flash content out of the box.The downside is that Flash is not really super-secure as vulnerabilities are discovered regularly that require patching. While the patching is out of the hand of users, it still means that the integrated version of Flash has vulnerabilities.All of that will change in 2020 when Adobe retires Flash. Up until then though, Flash will remain integrated in Windows 8.1 and Windows 10, and it is up to the user or administrator to deal with it.The operating systems come without option to uninstall Adobe Flash. The only option that is provided is to disable Flash in the browsers or using system tools.While there are workarounds available to remove the built-in Flash entirely from a Windows machine, it is recommended that most users don’t make the required modifications as it includes having to make changes to the Registry and using dism to remove packages.You can check out the instructions on the Ask Woody site if you are interested in removing Flash completely.Disable Adobe Flash in Microsoft EdgeMicrosoft Edge is the default Windows 10 web browser and it comes with built-in Flash support and an option to turn off Adobe Flash.How that is done depends on the version of the operating system that is installed.

Iran shuts down Instagram Telegram apps amid protests

first_imgDurov’s use of the phrase “peaceful protesting” is key here as Telegram has already voluntarily blocked one channel being used during these protests that explicitly called for violence. Durov defended the move on Twitter.  The Iranian government has blocked access to messaging app Telegram and photo app Instagram amid several days of protests in what authorities say is a move “to maintain tranquillity and security of society,” according to state-run media. Various media reports have stated that the apps were used to coordinate plans and share photos and videos of the demonstrations, which began as protests over economic inequality but have since grown in scope, taking aim at leading political figures like Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei  and President Hassan Rouhani.Instagram did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Telegram’s founder, Pavel Durov, tweeted about his app being blocked early Sunday morning. Durov addressed both incidents on Sunday in a statement he posted to Telegram. In that post, he stood by the app’s use in arranging the demonstrations, writing: “We consider freedom of speech an undeniable human right, and would rather get blocked in a country by its authorities than limit peaceful expression of alternative opinions.”It’s not the first time the encrypted messaging app Telegram has played a big role in political upheaval in Iran. The app became a popular way for users in the country to communicate and share information leading up to elections in 2016.Not too long after that, Iran’s Supreme Council of Cyberspace altered its data policy, requiring that messaging apps like Telegram would have to use servers based in within the country.Earlier in 2017, Indonesia blocked Telegram over concerns related to the use of the app by ISIS terrorist to coordinate and plan attacks.

This was a hot topic at the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) 2019 meeting in July.  January 15, 2009 – There is no survival disadvantage to waiting up to 20 weeks to start radiation therapy (RT) after breast-conserving surgery (BCS), but delaying more than that does adversely affect outcomes, according to results from a large study published in the January 2009 issue of Journal of Clinical Oncology (J Clin Oncol, 2009 Jan 1, IA Olivotto, et al).”To date, the optimal, maximally acceptable delay time to begin RT after BCS has not been clearly defined,” noted Lee Schwartzberg, M.D., Ph.D., editor-in-chief of OncologySTAT. Dr. Schwartzberg noted that “[t]his prospectively evaluated, large, population-based study from British Columbia determined that initiation of external-beam RT up to 20 weeks after BCS, in the absence of adjuvant chemotherapy, was associated with similar outcome to earlier initiation. Delay beyond 5 months significantly compromised both the local-regional failure rate (10 percent vs 5.6 percent) and breast cancer–specific survival. He added, “Left unanswered is how the interspersion of adjuvant systemic chemotherapy, typically given after BCS and before RT, would affect these results.”For more information: www.oncologystat.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享last_img read more

(HL7), a non-profit standards development organization, has submitted comments emphasizing the need for strong health informatics standards to the European Union’s recent public open consultation on the review of the European Standardization System.The aim of the open consultation is to gain an understanding of stakeholders’ view on the review of the European Standardization System and to gather opinions and suggestions on the potential avenues the European Commission should explore in order to shape concrete proposals. While the use of standards remains voluntary, the European Union has, since the mid-1980s, increasingly made use of open standards in support of its policies and legislation.The response of HL7 highlighted the need for robust standards against which conformance can be tested and asserted. In its comments, HL7 notes the importance of widely and consistently adopting standards for health informatics and identifies the major barriers to the adoption of these standards published by the European Committee for Standardization, including:• Cost of obtaining the standard;• Lack of supporting education;• Lack of conformance criteria to test against;• Lack of relevant standards; and• Limited engagement in standards development, especially by small and medium sized businesses.HL7 recommends that International Organization of Standardization, European Standards Organizations and National Standards Organizations work in partnership with the member states and the standards development organizations with domain-specific expertise, such as HL7 and International Health Terminology Standards Development Organization. This form of public-private partnership is likely to have the capacity to both develop and publish standards suitable for large-scale adoption throughout the market. Additionally, such collaboration would likely promote the quicker development of robust standards without duplication of efforts.For more information: www.HL7.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Sponsored Content | Case Study | Radiation Dose Management | August 13, 2019 The Challenge of Pediatric Radiation Dose Management Radiation dose management is central to child patient safety.

first_img Related Content June 10, 2013 — The American College of Radiology (ACR) strongly urges Americans ages 50-and-older, particularly those with a family history of colorectal cancer, not to delay or forego recommended screening due to concerns raised by a June 1, New York Times article titled, “The $2.7 Trillion Medical Bill: Colonoscopies Explain why U.S. Leads the Work in Health Expenditures.”The article charges that healthcare costs more in the United States is directed against medical services in general, with colonoscopy singled out as a “compelling case study.” The article claims that they are the most expensive screening test that healthy Americans routinely undergo, with more than 10 million patients purportedly undergoing the procedures every year (a number 10 times greater than a decade ago). Moreover, as is true of many other health care services, screening colonoscopies vary considerably across the country in both the frequency with which they are performed and in pricing. The Times included data from the Healthcare Blue Book showing that the cost of colonoscopy varied, in metropolitan areas across the United States, from a low of $1,908 in Baltimore to a high of $8,577 in New York.Colorectal cancer remains one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers and leading causes of cancer death in the U.S. While the ACR recognizes the need to conserve precious health care resources, the College also recognizes the fact that regular colorectal cancer screening saves lives.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced in 2012 that the number of people 50 and older screened for colorectal cancer increased over the past decade and that colorectal cancer deaths are down over that span. However, the increase in screening and drop in deaths leveled off in recent years. More than 140,000 Americans annually are diagnosed with colorectal cancer. Nearly 50,000 of them die because it is detected too late.“There is absolutely no doubt that thousands of people are alive today, who otherwise would not be, as a direct result of regular colorectal cancer screening.  The ACR agrees with the Times article’s assessment that Americans need greater access to more colorectal cancer screening choices — including CT colonography — otherwise known as virtual colonoscopy. ACR is ready to work with Congress, Medicare and other stakeholders to make that happen,” said Judy Yee, M.D., FACR, chair of the American College of Radiology Colon Cancer Committee.Virtual colonoscopy is endorsed by the American Cancer Society as a recommended screening test. Multiple clinical trials, including a New England Journal of Medicine study, prove that virtual colonoscopy is comparably effective to standard colonoscopy in the overwhelming majority of Americans (all but high-risk patients). The virtual exam is only minimally invasive and doesn’t require sedation or an anesthesiologist, which offers benefits to the healthcare system and to patients.“Many major insurers — including CIGNA, UnitedHealthcare and Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield — cover CT colonography. However, Medicare does not cover the exam. Medicare coverage of CT colonography is encouraged by the ACR as it would make the less expensive test more widely available, preserve healthcare resources, attract many more people to be screened and ultimately save lives,” said Yee.Several other medical societies have spoken out against the New York Times article. The American College of Gastroenterology and Anesthesia Business Consultants said they have deep reservations about the cost methodology employed in the article, and its failure to acknowledge the cost-effectiveness of screening colonoscopy and the dramatic reduction in colorectal cancer incidence that has emerged in recent years.One of the many other questionable assertions made in the Times article was that “Until the last decade or so, colonoscopies were mostly performed in doctors’ office suites,” the implication being that the movement to ambulatory surgical or endoscopy centers has been unwarranted. Anesthesia Business Consultants said procedures requiring general anesthesia or deep sedation should only be done in locations offering the necessary personnel and equipment, and most doctors’ offices do not qualify. The choice of location depends on many factors and is made by the gastroenterologist. Anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists can and do willingly provide services in accredited offices. As stated by Fred E. Shapiro, DO, assistant professor of Anesthesia at Harvard Medical School and President and Founder of the Institute for Safety in Office-Based Surgery, “In the debate between office versus ambulatory surgery center, the most important factor is not so much theoretical effect on cost, but accreditation and policies regarding patient safety. For example, either an ASC or an office may be the safer option depending on whether or not they use checklists (teamwork) and other mechanisms to standardize patient selection, flow and on how procedures are performed.”Click here for more information: www.radiologyinfo.org  FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Feature | Radiology Imaging | July 29, 2019 | By Greg Freiherr Imaging Market in U.S. Could Rise In Coming Years The coming years may be good for the medical imaging community in the United States.

With concerns about radiation dose and reducing unnecessary imaging scans, advances in computed tomography (CT) systems have brought about technologies such as iterative reconstruction software, intraoperative capabilities and dose-tracking software. In addition, recent studies on the use of CT on select patient populations and the modality’s benefits in detecting certain cancers are showing that the risks of CT imaging can go both ways. While CT exams can add to a patient’s lifetime exposure to ionizing radiation, they can also be more beneficial in cases where magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or ultrasound might not be able to detect early-stage cancers. Some of these trends in utilization indicate that appropriate low-dose CT imaging will be key across patient populations. Use in Pediatric ImagingThe Image Gently campaign, first established in 2007, has called attention to the growing use of CT scans on pediatric patients. A report published June 2013 online in JAMA Pediatrics found that reducing unnecessary CT scans of children and lowering doses for the highest-dose scans could lower the overall lifetime risk of future imaging-related cancers by 62 percent.[1] Researchers at the University of California (UC) Davis Health System, led by lead study author Diana Miglioretti, dean’s professor in biostatistics in the department of public health sciences at UC Davis Health System, studied CT utilization trends in both male and female children under age 15 in six healthcare systems in the United States between 1996 and 2010.The retrospective study examined random scans of the head, abdomen/pelvis, chest and spine; all are regions of the body that account for more than 95 percent of all CT scans, according to the researchers. They found that use of CT in children increased between 1996 and 2005, and that radiation doses varied for exams of the same anatomy. “There are potential harms from CT, meaning that there is a cancer risk, albeit very small in individual children,” said Miglioretti in a press release.Using that data, the researchers calculated the projected risk of future cancers using the Biological Effects of Ionizing Radiation (BEIR) VII report for common cancers such as brain, liver, lung and prostate. The risk for radiation-induced leukemia and brain cancers were highest for scans of the head, the most commonly performed CT scan in children, according to the report. Given the risks, it is also important to note the value of using low-dose CT to image children when necessary.  Video Player is loading.Arthur Agatston explains the history of CT calcium scoring Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 9:54Loaded: 1.67%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -9:54 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Feature | Computed Tomography (CT) | November 04, 2013 | Raissa Rocha Trends in Computed Tomography New SystemsSome of the latest CT systems offered by vendors are equipped with technologies to lower dose and provide image quality comparable to that of high-dose scans. The NeuViz 64 from Neusoft Medical Systems Co. Ltd. delivers low-dose scanning, high patient throughput and ease of use, and is equipped with technologies to improve resolution, reduce artifact and noise, and deliver pediatric-specific protocols.One of Siemens Healthcare’s latest offerings is the Somatom Perspective, a 128-slice CT scanner that received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance in June 2012. It includes Siemens’ SAFIRE (sinogram affirmed iterative reconstruction) technology and an exclusive eMode feature that determines and automatically selects system scan parameters so the scanner operates with as low a load as possible.Toshiba’s Aquilion Prime is designed to be a more scalable and adaptable CT system, with advanced dose reduction iterative construction technology and a high-capacity couch that can move laterally and is low to the ground. A new platform for the Aquilion One family of CT scanners is set to display at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in December.  Videos | Cardiac Imaging | July 30, 2019 VIDEO: The History of CT Calcium Scoring Arthur Agatston, M.D., clinical pro read more Video Player is loading.Pierre Qian explains radiotherapy to ablate VTPlay VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 7:34Loaded: 2.19%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -7:34 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Lung Cancer ScreeningsLow-dose CT is seeing increased possibilities for use as beneficial screening for those at risk of lung cancer. In July 2013 the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommended a high “B” rating for annual CT scans of current and former smokers who meet certain criteria.[2] Those 55 to 80 years old, who have a 30 pack-year or greater history of smoking, and are either current smokers or have quit in the past 15 years, may soon be able to seek regular CT lung screening. The USPSTF rating can also add to the push for screening to be covered by insurance, including Medicare.The draft recommendation came about after results from the National Lung Screening Trial (NLST) were published in the New England Journal of Medicine in May. The NLST is a large-scale clinical trial that randomized more than 53,400 participants at high risk for lung cancer into either a CT arm or standard chest X-ray arm. The report’s authors found there was a 20 percent reduction in lung cancer deaths among participants screened with CT versus those who had chest X-rays. These initial results from the trial reflected those of other trials that compare the effective use of CT with X-ray in detecting early-stage lung cancer, said the authors.In addition, advances in chest CT are helping to make the case for screening. Alignment technology can enhance exams by offering more accurate and timesaving comparisons for radiologists who must assess lung nodules across exams for change, often complicated by variances in patient positioning and breath hold. In the Stony Brook study to be published later this year, researchers measured the time it took for radiologists to match each nodule in prior exams to the same location in current exams using both manual alignment and automatic alignment software.[3]The study used Blackford Analysis’ automatic alignment software integrated with picture archiving and communications systems (PACS), and compared it to a manual method where radiologists scroll manually to match lung nodules. Preliminary data announced in August shows that automatic deformable alignment can reduce location match time by greater than 55 percent. These results may have an impact on the workloads of radiologists, who may face an increase in chest CT studies for lung cancer following the USPSTF’s announcement, said Ben Panter, CEO of Blackford Analysis.
