No matter how much safety planning and training occur in a radiology department, accidents can still happen in the MRI suite and they are often dramatic and unpredictable.
The use of an MRI-adjusted risk calculator for high-grade prostate cancer could reduce the need for repeat prostate biopsies by more than a third, researchers from the Netherlands report.
Heart scans for patients with chest pains could save thousands of lives in the UK, research suggests. The life-saving scans helped to spot those with heart disease so they could be given treatments to prevent heart attacks.
Children with certain types of brain tumors who undergo radiation treatment are less likely to recall the specifics of events they experienced after radiation than to remember pre-treatment happenings, according to a Baylor University study comparing them to children with healthy brains.
Researchers at Ruhr-Universität Bochum have analyzed why certain people tend to put tasks off rather than tackling them directly. Using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), they identified two brain areas whose volume and functional connectivity are linked to an individual's ability to control their actions. The research team published the results in the journal Psychological Science.
The new treatment will serve as both diagnosis and treatment of malignant tumors. This breakthrough in the technologies of cancer diagnosis and treatment was made by an interdisciplinary Russian-German collaboration of chemists, physicists, and biologists from NUST MISIS, Lomonosov Moscow State University, Pirogov Russian National Research Medical University (RNRMU), and the University of Duisburg-Essen (Germany).
Scientists have developed a system that can pinpoint the location of ingestible implants inside the body using low-power wireless signals. Medical processes like imaging often require cutting someone open or making them swallow huge tubes with cameras on them. But what if could get the same results with methods that are less expensive, invasive and time-consuming?
Ultrasound surveillance is more effective and less costly than immediate biopsy for patients with intermediate-suspicion thyroid nodules, according to a new model study
An artificial intelligence (AI) platform accurately identifies acute neurologic events, such as stroke, from CT scans in as little as 1.2 seconds, new research suggests.
Higher PIRADS scores are associated with a higher likelihood of a diagnosis of prostate cancer, according to a retrospective study. The Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System (PIRADS) score classifies MRI lesions on a scale from 1 to 5.
In the first such clinical trial in the United States, physician-scientists with the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM) are investigating the use of MRI-guided focused ultrasound to open the blood-brain barrier.
