Highlight The Need For Effective Pregnancy Screening Measures

The researches find that the Some women may be inadvertently expose to gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs) early in pregnancy; a study has found. The results highlight the need for effective pregnancy screening measures before conducting advanced imaging studies, the researchers say. “Give the potential risks of gadolinium exposure during pregnancy, we sought to examine the…

Detection of Clinically Significant Prostate Cancer With MRI Plus

The researches find that the Prebiopsy multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging mpMRI combined with targeted biopsy is associated with improved detection of clinically significant prostate cancer compared with transrectal ultrasonography-guided systemic biopsy alone, a systematic review and meta-analysis reveals. “Prostate cancers usually diagnosed by taking 10 to 14 systematic samples from the prostate guided by ultrasound,”…

An Algorithm Aids In Diagnosing Cancer Early, Accurately

Diagnosing Cancer; breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death among women, and it is difficult to diagnose. Nearly 1 in 10 cancers is misdiagnosed as not cancerous; on the other hand, the more mammograms a woman has, the greater the chance; but she will see a false positive result and face an unnecessary…

PE Admissions Up But Short-Term Mortality Down

The researches find that the rate of hospitalization for pulmonary  embolization  PE among older US adults increased during the past 15 years, according to a study published online August 13 in JAMA. However, at the same time, “LOS [length of stay], readmission rates, and short-term and 1-year mortality rates declined,” write Behnood Bikdeli, MD, from Columbia University…

Bimodal Contrast Agent Suits Both MRI And Photoacoustic Imaging

The study find that the Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) visualizes internal body structures, often with the help of contrast agents to enhance sensitivity. A Belgian team of scientists has now developed a bimodal contrast agent suited for two imaging techniques at once, namely; MRI and a technique called photoacoustic imaging. The use of only one…

MRI Assisted Biopsies More Effective At Detecting Prostate Cancers

The study find that the Using MRI scans to target biopsies is more effective at detecting prostate cancers that are likely to need treatment than standard ultrasound guided biopsies alone, according to research published in JAMA Network Open. The research; led by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR); and Universities of Bristol, Ottawa, Exeter…

Dense Breasts May Mask Small Cancers On Mammography

The study find that the women with dense breasts to be told about the benefits of further imaging after mammography may not lead more women to get extra screening, a U.S. study suggests. Roughly half of U.S. women in their 40s and 50s have dense breast tissue; which increases their risk of breast cancer and…
