IMAGING Management

2019 28 Feb

Noninvasive MRI digital physical exam provides a Whole Body approach for personalised health. The scarcity of radiologic expertise and resources (hardware, personnel, quality, and other radiology services) impacts up to 4.7 billion people worldwide. Unfortunately, two-thirds of the world's population has no access to basic radiologic... Read more

Imaging Biomarkers Roadmap: Bridging the Translational Gap

2016 18 Oct

A paper published in Nature Reviews Clinical Oncology recommends a global standard for scanning biomarkers in cancer, in a move designed to bring research closer to clinical practice. “New imaging bioamrkers need to be established either as useful tools for testing research hypotheses in clinical trials and research studies, or as clinical decision-making...

Imaging Test May Identify Biomarker of Alzheimer’s Disease

2015 27 May

A new study published in Radiology reveals that degeneration of the brain's white matter may be an early marker of specific types of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), including early-onset AD. Researchers used diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) to assess the white matter tracts in 53 patients with three types of AD: early-onset AD and two atypical types of AD... Read more

Blood Test for Brain Injury Could Cut Need for Scans

2015 21 May

A simple blood test to measure brain-specific proteins released after a person suffers a traumatic brain injury (TBI) has been shown to predict both evidence of TBI on radiographic imaging and injury severity. A multicentre study, published in Journal of Neurotrauma , describes the potential benefit of adding detection of glial fibrillary acidic protein... Read more

Radiogenomic Imaging Could Replace Biopsy

2014 07 Sep

High-throughput biological techniques have reshaped the perspective of biomedical research allowing for fast and efficient assessment of the entire molecular topography of a cell’s physiology, providing new insights into human cancers. However, a main limitation of these techniques is the need to acquire tissue for gene expression profiling through... Read more
