  • MR images confirmed that women with the condition, known as Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome, may have large uteri with no conventional structure (defined as rudimentary uteri in this study) that can mimic normal postpubertal uteri. Show Preview
  • A new study of Medicare beneficiaries shows that patients with vascular dementia and Parkinson’s disease who are first misdiagnosed as having Alzheimer’s disease (AD) generate substantial excess costs until they are finally accurately diagnosed. Show Preview
  • Physicists and neuroscientists from The University of Nottingham and University of Birmingham have unlocked one of the mysteries of the human brain, thanks to new research using functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) and electroencephalography (EEG). Show Preview
  • PET images show that neural reserve and neural compensation allows highly educated patients with prodromal Alzheimer’s disease to cope better with the disease than their less educated peers, according to a study published in The Journal of Nuclear Medicine. Show Preview
  • More physicians are using electronic health records (EHRs), but a significantly smaller proportion of eligible physicians say they have met the first stage of meaningful use criteria, a study found. Show Preview
  • Digital chest tomosynthesis (DT) detected a comparable number of noncalcified lung nodules as low-dose CT during lung cancer screening, according to a study published in the Journal of Thoracic Oncology. Show Preview
  • Physicians weighing the benefits and risks of CT scans for detecting lung cancer now have more information to help with the decision. A new analysis of a 2010 U.S. study finds that low-dose CT scans pick up significantly more lung tumors than chest X-rays do. Show Preview
  • Because it’s noninvasive and doesn’t require anesthesia, CT postprocessing offers significant advantages over the gold standard of bronchoscopy for evaluating pediatric airways. Show Preview
