Radiogenomic Correlations in CT Imaging and MicroRNAs

2019 29 Oct

Finding new molecular biomarkers could help improve the diagnosis and treatment of clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC). A recent study in Italy compared quantitative parameters obtained from computed tomography texture analysis and microRNAs expression profile of ccRCC looking for correlation between them.   Results of this pilot study indeed...

Monitoring Peripheral Circulation

2016 27 Sep

Even though systemic haemodynamic variables may be normalised, ‏there could be regions with inadequate regional oxygenation at the tissue ‏level. The most recent developments of noninvasive monitoring of the ‏peripheral circulation have helped physicians to early identify patients ‏at high risk for tissue hypoperfusion, organ failure and poor outcome....

Noninvasive CT Scan for Heart Disease

2015 23 Aug

Loyola University Medical Centre is the first hospital to offer a new and noninvasive technology to test for coronary artery disease.  The technology offered by the centre uses noninvasive CT scans and calculates the amount of blood that flows through diseased coronary arteries that have narrowed due to plaque buildup. The procedure is completely... Read more

Noninvasive Imaging Detects Genetic Mutations In Lung Cancer

2014 05 Jul

A recent study has found that patients with lung cancer could benefit from a high-tech, noninvasive imaging analysis called quantitative computed tomography based texture analysis (QTA). The new method was shown to be a safe alternative to surgical biopsy, which can be dangerous for lung cancer patients. QTA has the ability to non-invasively detect... Read more
