PET/CT Improves Assessment of Oesophageal Malignancy

Esophageal carcinoma is the eighth most common cancer globally. It occurs in the inside lining of the esophagus, and is diagnosed by biopsy using Endoscopic Ultrasound. Treatment includes surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, or palliative care. Radiotherapy is often used for both curative and palliative treatment. The outcomes of treatment are often poor because of late diagnosis, and can result in a 5-year survival rate of only 13%‒18%.  More...

Image: Molecular Breast Imaging (right) detected 3.6 times as many invasive cancers as digital mammography (left) in the latest study of more than 1,500 women with dense breast tissue. About half of screening-age women have dense breast tissue, which digital mammography renders the same whitish shade as tumors. Results are published in the American Journal of Roentgenology (Photo courtesy of the Mayo Clinic / AJR).

New Screening Method Can Significantly Improve Detection of Breast Cancers in Dense Breast Tissue

A large percentage of women of screening age have dense breast tissue. Dense breast tissue is difficult to distinguish from and obscures tumors in X-ray mammography images.  More...

Neuroimaging Devised to Help Predict Future Behavior

A review article has focused on a number of recent studies showing that brain imaging can help predict an individual’s future learning, criminality, health-related behaviors, and response to drug or behavioral treatments. The technology may offer new strategies for customizing educational and clinical practices.  More...
