MRI Accuracy Raises Hope For Pain Sufferers

The researches find that the A new MRI scanning technique for analysing degenerated spinal discs improves accuracy from 70% using current methods to 97%, raising hope of better diagnoses of back pain. Because The exact causes of an individual’s back pain may be better understood after UNSW Sydney researchers improved the accuracy of MRI scans…

Reporting Makes Radiation Studies Impossible To Replicate

The researches find that the radiation oncology studies funded by the National Institutes of Health involve investigating the effects that radiation has on tumor cells and healthy tissue in pre-clinical settings, such as experiments done in cell cultures or mice. A majority of these radiation biology studies; however, have serious flaws in how their irradiation…

Developments In Radiation Detectors Enhance Global Nuclear Security

Nuclear power plants can withstand most inclement weather and do not emit harmful greenhouse gases. However; trafficking of the nuclear materials to furnish them with fuel remains a serious issue as security technology continues to be developed. Two physicists working out of the University of Florida and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory; Paul Johns and Juan…

Neuroimaging Neurofeedback For Pain After Spinal Cord Injury

The researches find that the management of neuropathic pain in individuals with spinal cord injury. Because This will be the first study to examine neuroimaging mediated by functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) for facilitating the learning of self-management strategies for neuropathic pain post-spinal cord injury. Dr. Zanca is senior research scientist in the Center for…

Lung Cancer Screening: False Positives and True Benefits

The researches find that the decision-making with patients eligible for low-dose CT scans for lung cancer screening. At that time, few patients were being screened, and only one study, the National Lung Screening Trial (NLST), had shown that screening saved lives. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services had just begun paying for CT scans…

Use of CT Scans During Pregnancy in US and Canada

The study find that the ordering CT for women who are pregnant, a new study suggests. During the past 2 decades, rates of exposure to ionizing radiation from medical imaging during pregnancy has increased dramatically in the United States and Canada, report Marilyn L. Kwan, PhD, from the Division of Research, Kaiser Permanente Northern California,…

Size And Weight Of Medical MRI Equipment By More Than Half

The study find that the Electrotechnology Research Institute has developed a superconducting insulation technology that can significantly reduce the size and weight of medical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) equipment. MRI transmits a high-frequency magnetic field of thousands of hertz to the human body and displays the image signals generated from atomic nuclei in the body…

Analyses Of EEG Recordings Provide Understanding Of Epileptic Seizures

The researches find that the statistical analyses of EEG recordings can improve our understanding of epileptic seizures. A statistical approach squeezes more detailed information out of a current method of measuring brain signals in epileptic seizures; adding new insight into how these signals originate and spread. Visual inspection of electroencephalography (EEG); recordings of epilepsy patients…

Novel PET Staging System Help Monitor Alzheimer Disease

The study find that the staging system for AD using amyloid positron emission tomography PET with data from 741 persons: 304 without cognitive impairment, 384 with mild cognitive impairment, and 53 with AD dementia. Therefore Early, intermediate, and late regions of Aβ accumulation are determine using cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) Aβ42 and fluorine 18-labeled florbetapir data.…

Low Doses Of Radiation Promote Cancer-Capable Cells

The study find that the Low doses of radiation equivalent to three CT Scans, which are considered safe, give cancer-capable cells a competitive advantage over normal cells in healthy tissue, scientists have discovered. Researchers at the Wellcome Sanger Institute and the University of Cambridge studied the effects of low doses of radiation in the oesophagus…

EEG Helps Predict Cardiac Arrest Outcomes In Comatose

To provide evidence that early electroencephalography (EEG) allows for reliable prediction of poor or good outcome after cardiac arrest. In a 5‐center prospective cohort study, we included consecutive, comatose survivors of cardiac arrest. Continuous EEG recordings are starte as soon as possible and continue up to 5 days. Therefore Five‐minute EEG epochs are assess by…
