Diagnostic Imaging Tests Ordered by General Practitioners in Australia Nearly Double in 10 Years

A 45% increase in diagnostic imaging tests ordered by Australian GPs is being fueled by increasing GP visits, an escalating number of problems managed at doctor visits, and a higher probability that GPs order imaging tests for these problems, according to a new study.   More...

Image: Because Fourier-domain OCT is fast, it is possible to acquire multiple B-scans, register (align) them and construct a three-dimensional (3D) view of regions of interest.  One can “slice” the image in any orientation such as through the top of the retina to obtain C-scans, which provide the view that is similar to that obtained with fundus cameras or scanning laser ophthalmoscopes (Photo courtesy of UC, Davis).

Optical Coherence Tomography Used to Image Pain Management in Labor and Diabetic Retinopathy and Glaucoma

Researchers are using established imaging technology called optical coherence tomography and integrating it with other devices for cutting-edge imaging of women in labor and individuals with diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma.   More...
