Results from recent trials including the National CTC Trial conducted by the ACR Imaging Network (ACRIN
) that demonstrated the effectiveness of virtual colonoscopy as a screening procedure, coupled with recent initiatives to establish Medicare reimbursement for the procedure, may increase the viability of virtual colonoscopy for colorectal cancer screening and are likely to drive increased utilization of the procedure.
Supplementing mammography with ultrasound raised the rate of diagnosis by 55% in the American College of Radiology Imaging Network (ACRIN
) 6666 study, the largest randomized clinical trial to compare the performance of mammography plus ultrasound with that of mammography alone in high-risk women, according to the researchers.
Wendie Berg reported on behalf of the American College of Radiology Imaging Network (ACRIN
) 6666 trial group at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America.
Additional regulatory elements included the first intron of the rice acrin
1 promoter (McElroy et al., 1990), the 3' non-translated region of the nopoline synthase gene from Agrobacterium tumefaciens (Fraley et al., 1983), and an intron from the maize hsp70 gene (Brown and Santino, 1994).
The Digital Mammographic Imaging Screening Trial (DMIST) is funded by the National Cancer Institute and conducted by the American College of Radiology Imaging Network (ACRIN
Women who refused breast MRI screening as part of the American College of Radiology Imaging Network (ACRIN
) 6666 trial reported that the long scan times required and the claustrophobia of the magnet bore itself were reasons for their refusal to undergo a breast MRI as a supplemental breast cancer screening tool (15, 28).
