Reprogramming Stem Cells May Suppress Cancer after Radiotherapy

The body has developed strategies of purging defective stem cells. A new study has revealed that one of these ways is a “program” that makes stem cells damaged by radiation differentiate into other cells that can no longer survive forever.   More...

International Trial Shows Non-Contrast Renal MRA Accurate in Detecting Renal Artery Stenosis

Since a US Food and Drug Administration warning in 2006 about the risks associated with the use of gadolinium-containing contrast agents in patients with acute renal failure, chronic kidney disease, or end-stage renal disease, companies have been trying to develop Magnetic Resonance Angiography techniques that do not rely on contrast agents.  More...

Electromagnetic Positioning and Real-Time Surface Tracking System for Radiotherapy Approved for Use in Europe

An electromagnetic positioning and real-time surface transmitter can be used anywhere on the outside of the body, where motions during radiation treatment needs to be detected or monitored. An example for use of the device is during respiratory motions, which are important to monitor during radiotherapy of, for instance, left-sided breast cancer.  More...
