Predicting Neurologic Outcome in Cardiac Arrest Patients

2017 11 Jul

Researchers in South Korea previously reported that diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI) could be used to predict neurologic outcomes before targeted temperature management (TTM) after return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) from cardiac arrest. In a new study, the same team of researchers compared the efficacy of brain computed tomography... Read more

Surge in CT for Minor Injuries in California

2016 19 Jan

A new study shows increased use of CTs in patients with non-serious injuries, such as fractures or neck strain, treated in emergency departments at California hospitals. The UCSF-led study, which tracked the use of the imaging from 2005 to 2013, found that CTs were more likely to be ordered in hospitals that were designated high-level trauma centres.Some...
