Simple X-Ray Method Can Diagnose Vertebral Compression and Prevent Spinal Fractures

New research suggests that a simple X-ray method should be introduced as a routine procedure in healthcare so that more elderly patients with vertebral compression fractures can be diagnosed and given the most efficacious drugs. More...

Chest CT Scans of COVID-19 Patients Could Help Distinguish Between SARS-CoV-2 Variants

A new study has found that the SARS-COV-2 Omicron variant is associated with fewer and less severe changes on chest CT compared with the Delta variant. The study also found that patients with Omicron had greater frequency of bronchial wall thickening but lower clinical severity and improved hospital outcomes than those with Delta. More...

New Diagnostic Ultrasound Reimagines POC Systems

A new Point of Care (POC) ultrasound system adopts a novel way of applying ultrasound called X-Link to synchronize the patient's other physiological information on the same screen, enabling clinicians to have a holistic view of a patient's course of disease, to perform monitoring by timeline, and monitor multiple states of the patient simultaneously.

MRI and CT Predicts Flap Failure After Head and Neck Reconstructive Cancer Surgery

When a patient with head and neck cancer has surgery to remove it, they often need reconstructive surgery in the form of a “free flap”, which is skin and tissue taken from a different part of the body and connected to the blood vessels of the wound in need of repair. Now, a study has found that early postoperative CT scans and MRIs can help predict whether a flap will fail, which could allow surgeons to intervene earlier. More...
