Global nuclear medicine community shares COVID-19 strategies and experiences

Published: Wed, 01 Apr 2020 15:08:15 EDT

In an effort to provide safer working environments for nuclear medicine professionals and their patients, clinics across five continents have shared their approaches to containing the spread of COVID-19. This compilation of strategies, experiences and precautions is intended to support nuclear medicine clinics as they make decisions regarding patient care.

How dopamine drives brain activity

Published: Wed, 01 Apr 2020 13:08:23 EDT

Using a specialized magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sensor that can track dopamine levels, neuroscientists have discovered how dopamine released deep within the brain influences distant brain regions.

New quantum technology could help diagnose and treat heart condition

Published: Tue, 31 Mar 2020 13:00:59 EDT

The conductivity of living organs, such as the heart, could be imaged non-invasively using quantum technology, which has the potential to revolutionize the diagnosis and treatment of atrial fibrillation.

Ultrasound solves an important clinical problem in diagnosing arrhythmia

Published: Wed, 25 Mar 2020 14:38:28 EDT

Researchers have used an ultrasound technique they pioneered a decade ago -- electromechanical wave imaging (EWI) -- to accurately localize atrial and ventricular cardiac arrhythmias in adult patients in a double-blinded clinical study. They evaluated the accuracy of EWI for localization of various arrhythmias in all four chambers of the heart prior to catheter ablation: the results showed that EWI correctly predicted 96% of arrhythmia locations as compared with 71% for 12-lead ECGs.

Radiation drugs with longer shelf life brings hope for cancer patients globally

Published: Sat, 21 Mar 2020 09:32:10 EDT

Victorian researchers and industry combine expertise to develop radiation drugs with longer shelf life.

Coronavirus testing kits to be developed using RNA imaging technology

Published: Thu, 19 Mar 2020 14:46:47 EDT

Researchers will use a pioneering imaging technology -- called Mango, for its bright color -- to develop coronavirus testing kits.

Why is appendicitis not always diagnosed in the emergency department?

Published: Mon, 16 Mar 2020 17:35:18 EDT

A new study examines the factors associated with a potentially missed diagnosis of appendicitis in children and adults in the emergency department.

Experts stress radiology preparedness for COVID-19

Published: Mon, 16 Mar 2020 14:53:28 EDT

A new article outlines priorities for handling COVID-19 cases and suggests strategies that radiology departments can implement to contain further infection spread and protect hospital staff and other patients.

Getting groundbreaking medical technology out of the lab

Published: Mon, 16 Mar 2020 14:14:49 EDT

New medical technologies hold immense promise for treating a range of conditions. Despite the pace of innovation in the medtech field, however, most discoveries never make it out of the laboratory. New research could fast-track the route to clinical translation.

Tomosynthesis outperforms digital mammography in five-year study

Published: Tue, 10 Mar 2020 10:15:44 EDT

A new study has found that the advantages of digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) over digital mammography (DM), including increased cancer detection and fewer false positive findings, are maintained over multiple years and rounds of screening. In addition, research showed that DBT screening helped detect a higher proportion of poor prognosis cancers than DM.
