More Precise Lung Cancer Imaging, Radiation Results

2015 31 Dec

To improve precision of lung cancer imaging, researchers have developed a new technique that uses mathematical modelling to capture images of a patient's lung when it is depressed — the stage that offers the best picture of a cancerous site.The new approach monitors respiratory gating, or a patient's motion breath-by-breath, and uses the data collected...

Multimodality Imaging in Cancer Management

2015 17 Dec

Using PET/CT with whole-body MRI (WBMRI) is effective in detecting extraskeletal disease, according to Stanford University researchers who suggest that this technique may change the management of high-risk breast and prostate cancer patients. The researchers also found that the combined administration of F-18 sodium fluoride (NaF) and F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose... Read more

PET/CT Method Can Help Detect ‘Hardening’ of the Arteries

2015 14 Jul

University of Cambridge researchers have developed an imaging technique — combining positron emission tomography (PET) and CT — that uses sodium fluoride radiotracer to detect the build-up of unstable calcium deposits in arteries, a process that can cause heart attack and stroke. The new method, reported in the journal Nature Communications, could help... Read more

PET/CT Captures Hidden Source of Neuroendocrine Cancer

2015 11 Jun

Determining the origin of cancer becomes difficult when tumour cells have already spread to other tissues (metastases). An investigational molecular imaging technique — combining positron emission tomography and computed tomography (PET/CT) — could be the key to finding the elusive primary tumour, according to a new study presented at the 2015 Annual...
