Women who experience a “false positive” result after mammograms are twice as likely to end up developing cancer as those who get a negative result, research suggests.
All news from Radio Diagnosis
Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a new technique that allows them to assess radiation exposure in about an hour using an insulator material found in most modern electronics. The technique can be used to triage medical cases in the event of a radiological disaster.
The growing prevalence of obesity among Americans may be adversely affecting the health of physicians by exposing them to greater amounts of radiation during coronary angiography, new research suggests.
Bruin Biometrics, LLC (“BBI”) has been granted U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) marketing authorization for the SEM Scanner, becoming the world’s first FDA-authorised device to objectively alert clinicians to specific anatomical areas of a patient’s body at increased risk for developing pressure damage.
The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and 4D pharma today announced a strategic collaboration to evaluate 4D's live biotherapeutic oncology pipeline across a range of cancer settings.
Women between the ages of 30 and 39 who have at least 1 of 3 breast cancer risk factors may benefit from starting their annual mammography screening at age 30, according to results from a large-scale study that was presented at the 2018 Radiological Society of North America Annual Meeting.
Many surgeons participate in the management of superficial soft tissue masses, and a preoperative incorrect diagnosis frequently results in dismal oncological outcomes. The aim of this study was to identify distinguishing magnetic resonance imaging features between malignant and non-malignant lesions.
There is no decrease in the number of breast cancer deaths if screening mammography is performed in women aged <40 years. However, NCCN guidelines recommend screening mammography in young women at risk of hereditary breast cancer. Therefore, more accurate screening mammography for young women is needed.
A recent study by researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) found that when it comes to making financial decisions under risk, older adults will regard the financial outcomes of others' as their own and make choices that they would have selected for themselves.
Breast cancer is one of the major causes of death for women. Temperature measurement is advantageous because it is non-invasive, non-destructive, and cost-effective. Temperature measurement through infrared thermography is useful to detect changes in blood perfusion that can occur due to inflammation, angiogenesis, or other pathological causes.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans of people watching the same clip from a dramatic film show that holistic thinkers all have similar brain responses to the scene, whereas analytical thinkers respond differently to each other.
The burden of liver disease continues to increase in the UK, with liver cirrhosis reported to be the third most common cause of premature death. Iron overload, a condition that impacts liver health, was traditionally associated with genetic disorders such as hereditary haemochromatosis, however, it is now increasingly associated with obesity, type-2 diabetes and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
