UCLA scientists made the early diagnosis using what’s called pseudo-continuous arterial spin MRI, pinpointing patients who had low blood flow to their placentas

University of Pennsylvania scientists are piloting the use of special imaging markers to track the movement of CAR T cells within the body. 
 

If such technology is made available commercially, it could revolutionize magnetic resonance imaging, noted Stephan Anderson, a Boston Medical Center radiologist and BU School of Medicine professor of radiology. 

Those involved said that such access is crucial for early cancer detection, and will hopefully help to avoid any unnecessary, duplicative testing in the future. 

E-cigarette or vaping product use-associated lung injury has already stricken more than 1,600 individuals across the country, killing 34. 

Experts with Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin have developed a new diagnostic technique to let doctors visualize liver tumors using “tomoelastography,” which combines tomography and elasticity.

“It is evident from today’s report that these lung injuries are disproportionately affecting young people,” said Director Robert Redfield, MD. 

As part of the collaboration, Yale New Haven Hospital has been using the MRI system for a two-year study involving the American Heart Association. Results of the preliminary research will be announced early next year.

18 fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) PET/CT imaging can help predict outcomes of patients who have been newly diagnosed with multiple myeloma, according to a study published in the American Journal of Roentgenology.

Those results have been proven true regardless of tumor type, size or grade of cancer, Brigham and Women's researchers found. 

GE Healthcare is teaming up with Premier Inc. to create America’s first one-stop breast cancer diagnostic center, where women can receive their imaging results the same day as testing. 

The aggressiveness with which some low-risk cancers are surveilled has more to do with the preferences of the patient than the state of the disease. Consequently, patients who want more scans and tests tend to raise their costs and risks of overtreatment without improving their outcomes.
