  Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is a significant global health issue, constituting a sizable portion of cancer cases and presenting challenges in early detection due to its asymptomatic nature. Imaging techniques like CT and MRI are crucial for diagnosing and staging RCC, but they may miss small or low-grade metastatic lesions. As a result, there's...Read more

Gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs), used during MRI scans, enhance brain tissue contrast. GBCAs are crucial for brain tumour care because they highlight areas with abnormal blood-brain barrier permeability that tumours cause.  This permits monitoring of treatment response and also guide surgical tumour removal.  Disadvantages to using GBCAs include...Read more

One of the major problems which is commonly attributed to affect patient outcomes is the failure to follow-up diagnostic imaging in time. It is critical to follow-up diagnostic imaging findings in order to have access to and receive high quality and vital care. Patient location at the time of undergoing imaging is directly related with how likely a...Read more

A novel nondiamond-based contrast agent has been developed by a team of scientists from the National University of Singapore. The chemical "dye" can be used to enhance the visibility of internal body structures in MRI and can improve the visualisation of liver cancer tumours. This in turn can facilitate earlier detection and improved treatment strategies....Read more

Variation in provider ordering preferences and lapses in care coordination are key factors affecting high-cost cancer imaging utilisation, according to a study published in Journal of Cancer Policy. In particular, high-ordering oncologists were found to be substantial drivers of imaging utilisation, with 58 percent more per patient imaging than their...Read more

A new non-invasive, image-based tracking of stem cell signals in living animals could provide a strategy to arrest pancreatic cancer growth, especially the most common pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma, which is extraordinarily lethal, with a 5-year survival rate of just 6 percent. Chemotherapy treatments are poorly effective, in part due to a high...Read more

Having radiotherapy once a day for six and a half weeks or twice a day for three weeks – when combined with chemotherapy – is equally good at treating small cell lung cancer that hasn’t spread. These results – from a Cancer Research UK-funded clinical trial presented at the ASCO cancer conference in Chicago – mean patients and doctors...Read more

Radiographic images, such as x-rays, mammograms and computed tomography (CT), help detect diseases like cancer in its early stages when treatment can be most effective. As these images are in black and white, detecting the difference between healthy tissue and abnormalities can be difficult.  Now, a new technology called spectral (colour) computed tomography...Read more
