This is what we know--colorectal cancer screening works. Despite this, screening rates remain problematic. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about one in three adults ages 50 to 75, haven't been tested for colorectal cancer as recommended by the United States Preventive Services Task Force.
The global diagnostic imaging market is poised for significant growth over the next four years, a new report shows.
Researchers at the Mayo Clinic have developed an algorithm that can help diagnose appendicitis in children and reduce the need for computed tomography.
Proton beam therapy has a significant advantage over intensity modulated radiation therapy when it comes to improving disease free survival and tumor control in patients with head and neck cancers, according to a study by Mayo Clinic radiation oncologists.
The use of a new imaging technique--quantitative computed tomography texture analysis (QTA)--could help provide lung cancer patients with improved treatments and better track their progress, according to a study in the journal PLOS ONE.
The United States Preventive Services Task Force has published a final recommendation on screening elderly adults for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA).
A study published this month in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology Cardiovascular Imaging shows the value of coronary artery calcium scoring--an imaging technique using CT scanning--in assessing the risk of heart attack.
Researchers at Beaumont Health Systems have found that the use of advanced CT scanners can significantly reduce patient radiation dose and lower patients' lifetime risk of cancer from radiation exposure.
The cost of imaging tests--specifically lower-back MRI and CT scans of the head--varies widely across U.S. cities, according to data from Castlight Health.
Gamma and neutron imaging could be higher quality imaging options than existing techniques like X-ray and computed tomography, while delivering safety levels on par with conventional imaging, according to a study in the June issue of Medical Physics.
