Research findings conducted during the Transforming Research and Clinical Knowledge in Traumatic Brain Injury (TRACK-TBI), found a new blood test can detect mild traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) missed by CT scans. The data was collected from 18 different brain trauma centers in the United States. “Blood-based biomarkers are emerging as an important tool to detect…

A new screening test has been developed to detect lung cancer in high-risk patients. This is the first test of it’s kind for early diagnoses and potential risk for lung cancer-the leading cancer killer for both men and women in the United States. According to the American Lung Association (ALA), more than half of people…

A CT Scan test is used to find calcium buildup in arteries-a sign of heart disease. Many patients diagnosed with heart disease or those who come to a hospital with a cardiac emergency have no symptoms or a previous diagnoses. A heart attack is caused by arterial blockage that prevents blood and oxygen from reaching…

Radiotherapy is a well established method for attacking tumors within the body. There are several techniques used to administer radiation to a lesion, but they all come with the risk of injuring nearby tissues and organs. Gamma beams and other directed high energy devices result in the exposure of all the tissues on the way…

A neurosurgeon at in Littleon, Colorado at Littleton Adventist Hospital is the first to ever use a new imaging device during deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery for a patient with Parkinson’s disease. During DBS, a surgeon implants electrodes in the brain to control tremor or other symptoms. DBS is also used in the treatments of…

Screening patients for early lung cancer can be made far more effective by using ancillary blood tests, new research suggests. “Screening by CT saves lives, reducing lung cancer mortality by at least 20%,” noted Stephen Lam, MD, chair, provincial lung tumor group at the British Columbia Cancer Agency in Vancouver, Canada. However, a key issue…

Compared to regular amyloid imaging, fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG PET), an imaging technique that quantifies brain function by measuring glucose levels, can better assess the progression and severity of cognitive decline in people with Alzheimer’s, and also cognitive impairment, researchers have found. Their study, “18F-FDG Is a Superior Indicator of Cognitive Performance Compared to…

head ct scans in young adults

Head CT examinations do not put younger patients at a high risk of developing cataracts, according to new research published in Clinical Radiology. The lens is not always included in such scans, the authors noted, and even when it is, the associated radiation doses “appear insufficient to induce cataracts.” The study explored data from more than 410,000 children…
