Intraprostatic Fiducials Compared with Bony Anatomy and Skin Marks for Intensity-modulated radiotherapy
Image guided radiotherapy (IGRT) improves the accuracy of the target volume position during treatment. The patient’s set-up can be verified daily on bony anatomy with orthogonal kV-kV portal images. However, bony anatomy verification doesn’t take into account target volume and normal tissue shaping . Several techniques could improve the position verification during external-beam radiotherapy of patients with prostate cancer.
Radiology images can reveal critical clues about a patient's current injuries, as wells as the patterns of violence a person may be experiencing. A new study led by the Investigators from Brigham and Women's Hospital, reveals that radiologists can be involved in the care of victims of intimate partner violence (IPV). The team found common clinical and radiologic patterns that could alert radiologists of potential IPV, to spark a conversation with the referring physician and multi-disciplinary care team to get patients the help they need.
In a study of about 400 preschool children, only one child adhered to obesity prevention guidelines over the course of a single day at child care and at home. The study is published online in Preventive Medicine Reports.
Indiana University School of Medicine has identified a way to block the ability of parasites that cause malaria to shield themselves against drug treatments in infected mice – a finding that could lead to the development of new approaches to combat this deadly disease in humans. The study was published in the December issue of Cell Host & Microbe .
Two Johns Hopkins materials science graduate students and their professors played a key role in a multi-institution research project that pinpointed how a tiny protein seems to make the deadly Ebola virus particularly contagious.This finding, published recently in the Journal of Virology, could steer scientists toward a treatment targeting the protein, called a delta peptide.
A new study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine revealed that treatment plans that set individualized blood sugar goals for diabetes patients, tailored to their age and health history, can save $13,546 in health care costs over their average lifetime when compared with treatment strategies that stick to a uniform national standard.
Researchers have chemically imprinted polymer particles with DNA strands, a technique that could lead to new materials for applications ranging from biomedicine to the promising field of "soft robotics." This study is published in Nature Chemistry.
Researchers found an Italian family might have a different genetic configuration that could be altering their response to pain. This includes a 78-year-old woman and her two daughters and their three children. According to them, this could be a new path to developing medications for chronic pain. The study appeared in the latest edition of the journal Brain.
According to researchers, drinking a cup of hot tea every day might be linked to a significantly lower risk of developing the serious eye condition, glaucoma. However, hot coffee, iced tea, and soft drinks don not seem to make any difference. The study findings were appeared in the British Journal of Ophthalmology.
Results obtained from the University of Utah Health, they compelled that U.S. Olympic and Paralympic athletes and staff who travelled to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. They went in 2016 for playing summer games and did not get infected with Zika virus. When they did the test, it showed positive for tropical, mosquito-borne viral infections. Also gave a positive test for West Nile Virus, Dengue Fever, and Chikungunya.
A novel research proposes that taking folic acid in late pregnancy may increase the risk of allergies in offspring affected by intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR). The study was published in the American Journal of Physiology — Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology.
