Obesity Linked to Poor Brain Health in Children
Higher weight and body mass index are associated with poor brain health in children. Researchers observed structural brain changes in overweight children between the ages of 9 and 10, including significant impairment to the integrity of the white matter.Source: RSNA
Researchers Identify Brain Markers of ADHD in Children
Researchers analyzing MRI data on nearly 8,000 children have identified biomarkers of ADHD. Patients with ADHD had abnormal connectivity in the brain networks involved in memory processing and auditory processing, brain cortex thinning and significant white matter microstructural changes. MRI provides an objective means of identifying children with ADHD.Source: rsna.org
To Better Understand the Brain, Look at the Bigger Picture
Researchers evaluated various approaches to fMRI and found that zooming out and taking a wider field of view captures additional relevant information that a narrow focus leaves out, offering greater understanding of neural interplay.Source: YaleNews
Benefits of Digital Breast Tomosynthesis Holding Steady After 10 Years
Ten years after its adoption, digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) continues to provide better cancer detection with fewer false positives than 2D digital mammography, according to a major study presented at RSNA 2021.Source: RSNA Daily Bulletin
DBT maintains screening benefits over time
Digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) has shown itself to be a valid, beneficial breast imaging technology over a decade after it first became commercially available, according to research presented Sunday at the RSNA 2021 annual meeting.Source: AuntMinnie.com
Low-Cost Low-Field MRI Has Arrived: What Does It Mean for Radiology?
A few years ago, one of our MRI technologists went into a supply closet in the neurosciences intensive care unit (NICU) and discovered a portable head-only 0.064-T MRI scanner that uses a resistive magnet powered by a standard power outlet.Source: Science Direct
Collaborative Treatment by Urology and Radiology Holds Promise for Prostate Cancer Patients
A promising new treatment for prostate cancer that poses little risk of injury to organs surrounding the prostate gland will soon be providing Yale urologists and interventional radiologists with a new tool for treating patients, who often must weigh the benefits of invasive procedures that can result in a diminished quality of life.
