There is significant variation among different institutions with regard to the imaging algorithm for primary hyperparathyroidism, and the role and technique of parathyroid 4D-CT.
Please take 5 minutes to share your experience by completing this short survey.
Thanks for your participation by February 7th!…
Radiologists find satisfaction in detecting abnormalities and making diagnoses. However, our judgement is required when we identify incidental findings, especially if the cost of workup is high and the benefit of workup may be low. The incidental thyroid nodule is a scenario in which we need to carefully consider the consequences of our report and recommendations.
See recent blog from Duke on Radiopaedia:
You can download a copy of the guidelines from Duke at this website.…
There are currently no guidelines on how to report incidental thyroid nodules seen on MRI and CT with regards to recommending further workup with sonography. Your answers to the short survey below (5 mins to complete) will help us understand current practices.
Thank you for your time. We hope to follow-up with results of your responses and suggested best practice recommendations.

I have three questions for radiologists who perform spinal injections for pain management.
1. How many people regularly do cervical nerve root blocks?
2. Are you using CT or conventional fluoro?
3. If you are using CT, do you use contrast to confirm needle position?
It would be great for people to comment on the blog, but you can also email me directly.
Here’s another case for the value of DWI for head and neck lesions.
This patient had left central retinal artery occlusion and acute ischemic optic neuropathy. There is restricted diffusion in the anterior left optic nerve which is much more obvious than the mild perineural enhancement on coronal postcontrast images.
