RFK's assassination: A medical analysis of his injuries and neurosurgical care

Published: Tue, 19 Jun 2018 12:30:56 EDT

Although much has been written about Robert F. Kennedy's assassination, to date there has been no detailed medical discussion of Kennedy's injuries and treatment. A new article addresses this subject.

'Smart stent' detects narrowing of arteries

Published: Tue, 19 Jun 2018 12:30:00 EDT

Researchers have developed a type of 'smart stent' that monitors even subtle changes in the flow of blood through the artery, detecting the narrowing in its earliest stages and making early diagnosis and treatment possible.

World's first intra-operative MRI-guided robot for bilateral stereotactic neurosurgery

Published: Tue, 19 Jun 2018 12:25:17 EDT

Scientists have recently designed the first neurosurgical robotic system capable of performing bilateral stereotactic neurosurgery inside a magnetic resonance imaging ('MRI') scanner.

Laser-sonic scanner aims to replace mammograms for finding breast cancer

Published: Mon, 18 Jun 2018 10:26:45 EDT

For women over 40, mammography is a necessary yet annoying procedure to endure every year or two. The technique, while valuable for reducing breast cancer deaths, is less than ideal because it exposes patients to X-ray radiation and requires their breasts to be painfully squished between plates. The plates flatten the breast so the X-rays can more easily pass through it and produce a clear image.

New 3D imaging analysis technique could lead to improved arthritis treatment

Published: Mon, 18 Jun 2018 10:26:08 EDT

An algorithm to monitor the joints of patients with arthritis, which could change the way that the severity of the condition is assessed, has been developed by a team of engineers, physicians and radiologists.

New nuclear medicine method shows promise for better detection of neuroendocrine tumors

Published: Wed, 06 Jun 2018 12:04:19 EDT

Researchers have shown that a new nuclear medicine procedure could safely and more effectively detect cancerous gastrointestinal and pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors than current methods.

Cancer: Microbubbles delivered via gas embolotherapy could cut off blood supply and deliver drugs

Published: Tue, 05 Jun 2018 15:41:25 EDT

Embolization -- the use of various techniques to cut off the blood vessels that feed tissue growth -- has gained traction over the past decades to treat cancerous tumors, and one specific version is gas embolotherapy. During this process, the blood supply is cut off using acoustic droplet vaporization, which uses microscopic gas bubbles induced by exposure to ultrasonic waves. Researchers have discovered that these bubbles could also be used as potential drug delivery systems.

What effect does transcranial magnetic stimulation have on the brain?

Published: Tue, 05 Jun 2018 10:35:11 EDT

Researchers have gained new insights on the question of how transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) effects functional interconnectivity of neurons. For visualization, they employed fluorescent dyes which provide information on the activity of neurons by light. Using this technique, they showed in an animal model that TMS predisposes neuronal connections in the visual cortex of the brain for processes of reorganization.

More breast cancers found with combined digital screening

Published: Tue, 05 Jun 2018 10:34:52 EDT

A combination of digital mammography and tomosynthesis detects 90 percent more breast cancers than digital mammography alone, according to a new study.

Novel PET imaging noninvasively pinpoints colitis inflammation

Published: Mon, 04 Jun 2018 12:49:25 EDT

A novel positron emission tomography (PET) imaging method shows promise for noninvasively pinpointing sites of inflammation in people with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which includes ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease.
