Though guidelines dictate a standard set of radiographic projections that should be collected in each case when a child presents to a hospital with suspected physical abuse, an update to those recommendations suggests a more fragmented method of imaging that could ultimately slash time and radiation ...
Using optoacoustic (OA) imaging combined with conventional ultrasound (US) can help downgrade benign masses classified as BI-RADS 4A or 4B, according to a new study from Dutch researchers published in Radiology. This, the authors noted, could reduce the number of biopsies negative for cancer.

Ally Lewis ended up taking her favorite class completely by accident. “I had listed several choices for alternate classes, like Greenhouse was one I listed,” the North Stafford High School junior said. “Then when I got my schedule and saw Graphics 1, I thought, 'what is that?' ” But after attending the class for a ...
Airbus, Bill Gates and Japanese billionaire Masayoshi Son have joined to back a spinoff from Bellevue-based Intellectual Ventures that aims to launch a constellation of imaging satellites “that will deliver real-time, continuous video of almost anywhere on Earth.” Russell Hannigan, founder and chief ...
There's new technology to better detect breast cancer, and it's now at McLaren Flint's Imaging Center. This new genius 3D mammogram machine is able to give doctors a much clearer image. For some patients, detecting breast cancer is much more difficult. Those patients are women with dense breast tissue, a personal ...

It may be possible to distinguish infection from inflammation with maltodextrin imaging agents, according to one rat study looking at these tracers to catch infections early on for implanted cardiac devices. One such tracer, maltohexaose conjugated with fluorescent dye, accumulated at 1 hour after injection in ...
A team of researchers examined diagnostic imaging utilization trends in Massachusetts from 2009 to 2013 for a recent study in the Journal of the American College of Radiology. “Prior studies noted that utilization growth for diagnostic imaging began to decline around 2009, perhaps a reflection of the ...

Hancock Health, in Hancock County, Indiana, plans to build a 20,000-square-foot low-cost diagnostic imaging center for residents unable to afford imaging prices at the institution, according to the Greenfield Daily Reporter. The building, set to open in 2019, is geared toward working adults with high ...
The imaging agent, a tracer called F-MPG, can find a specific protein mutation found in non-small cell lung cancer, binds to it and emit gamma rays in PET scans. The tracer can also reveal weak spots in the cancer where therapeutic drugs can counteract mutations. Specifically, the F-MPG tracer floats ...
T2 weighted-based radiomics proved superior in classification performance than qualitative assessment and diffusion-weighted (DW) imaging for diagnosing pathologic complete response (pCR) in patients with rectal cancer who received therapy prior to their main treatment, according to a March 8 study in ...
Dasher Heart Center at South Georgia Medical Center (SGMC) in Valdosta opened a new state-of-the-art operating room combining top surgical care with advanced medical imaging, the Valdosta Daily Times reports. “Hybrid operating rooms combine the most advanced operating room and medical ...
Doctors contemplating the best therapy for lung cancer patients may soon be able to predict the efficacy of a widely used lung cancer drug based on an imaging agent and a simple scan, according to the findings of a new clinical trial co-led by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine.
University of California, Irvine-led researchers, however, have found that high-resolution functional magnetic resonance imaging of the brain can be used to show some of the underlying causes of differences in memory proficiency between older and younger adults. The study, which appears today in the ...
"Molecular imaging with PET shows the potential for non-invasively detecting cancer biomarkers in primary or metastatic tumors, and therefore for identifying patients who are likely to respond to specific treatments." Shen said. "We wanted to develop a novel strategy with PET imaging for non-invasively ...
