  • The 2012 Summer School of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) focused on optimization of the use of ionizing radiation in medical imaging. Show Preview
  • Researchers from Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich found that patients with detectable vascular changes on whole-body MRI faced a 20% chance of a major adverse cardiac and cerebrovascular event (MACCE) in three years. Show Preview
  • Researchers from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) developed the Dementia Prognosis Index (DPI) software as a way of quantifying information derived from PET scans and improving the modality’s ability to predict whether a patient will develop Alzheimer’s disease. Show Preview
  • The outcomes of a 2011 Medical Imaging & Technology Alliance (MITA) conference helped shape considerations about what might be the most appropriate pathways for the regulatory and payment considerations of new PET radiopharmaceuticals. Show Preview
  • 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
  • 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
  • Using a surface-based MRI method to measure cortical thickness, Italian researchers have found that migraine headaches may be related to brain abnormalities present at birth and other abnormalities that develop over time. Show Preview
