Lower Dose, Lower Contrast Possible for CTA Scans

2015 26 Dec

A CTA scan (a scan of the arteries) can be performed with a contrast medium volume reduction of up to 75 percent and up to 50 percent reduction in radiation dose, according to a new study from the University of Twente in Enschede, Netherlands. Researchers say the study's results can almost directly be applied in hospitals today, thus providing enormous... Read more

RSNA 2013: New Blood Vessels Network Emerges Post Face Transplantation Surgery

2013 04 Dec

For the first time, researchers have found that the blood vessels in face transplant recipients reorganize themselves, leading to an understanding of the biologic changes that happen after full face transplantation. The results of this study were presented at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA).Face transplantation... Read more
