Homeland security Among terrorism scenarios that raise the most concern are attacks involving nuclear devices or materials. For that reason, technology that can effectively detect smuggled radioactive materials is considered vital to U.S. security. To support the nation's nuclear-surveillance capabilities, researchers at the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) are developing ways to enhance the radiation-detection devices used at ports, border crossings, airports and elsewhere. The...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- A simple blood test may help prevent a serious complication associated with a contrast agent commonly used in MRI exams. Within the past five years, use of gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCA) has been linked to the development of nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF), a rare disorder mainly affecting patients with severe kidney disease. But since 2008, restrictive GBCA administration guidelines implemented by Massachusetts General Hospital have proven effective in...

A recent study shows how one medical center implemented strict protocols for administering gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs) before imaging and eliminated new cases for nephrogenic system fibrosis (NSF). Implementing this protocol is particularly important for patients with diminished kidney function says Dr. Ozden Narin, presenting author for this study. "In the past, we had some patients who developed NSF after they were given a gadolinium-based agent before imaging. We implemented...
