14: Medical device tax suspended for two years 12/23/2015
Just before Christmas, Congress passed a two-year suspension of the 2.3 percent medical device tax in year-end legislation.

Like so many things, the ultimate outcome will depend in large part on the next U.S. president.

13: Better prostate cancer detection with PET than MR 8/21/2015
Researchers from the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health discovered that PET can detect a fast-growing primary prostate cancer better than MR and is also better at differentiating it from benign prostate lesions. They hope this could eventually replace the traditional ultrasound-guided 12-core biopsy.

The verdict, delivered in June, concluded it did not.

10: Defining the risks of repeat Gadolinium exams 6/26/2015

The research, conducted on rats, could have major implications on the future of MR imaging.
