Study finds that a combination of molecular imaging, radiography and dual imaging probes detects more cancerous bone lesions than other methods Research revealed at the Society of Nuclear Medicine's 2012 Annual Meeting describes new approaches to imaging for the detection of tumors in complex cases of bone cancer. Hybrid imaging technology combining computed tomography (CT) with molecular imaging agents targeting two different markers of disease came out on top of the list for the...

Study shows molecular imaging technique can track stem cell therapy for hair regeneration Finding a way to restore hair growth after substantial hair loss is something of an obsession worldwide. Investigators at the Society of Nuclear Medicine's 2012 Annual Meeting presented how stem cell research for the development of new hair follicles can be monitored with an optical imaging technique that uses bioluminescence, the same process that allows fireflies to light up. There is a host of...

Research finds technology combining molecular imaging and CT can cut down on patient dose by limiting the number of CT scans per imaging study Molecular imaging is effective for providing information about disease processes, and today's hybrid imaging systems have additional computed tomography (CT) technology on board for alignment and imaging structures. While this addition increases the amount of radiation dose a patient receives, research presented at the Society of Nuclear...

New molecular imaging technique compensates for breathing and heartbeat to deliver highest-quality images of the heart A development in 4D image reconstruction compensates for blurring caused by the beating of the heart, say researchers at the Society of Nuclear Medicine's 59th Annual Meeting. The new method provides sharper-than-ever images of cardiac function to help pinpoint heart defects for better diagnoses and treatment. Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer across the...

Research finds major changes in treatment planning after neuroendocine cancer patients undergo molecular imaging with a specialized imaging probe A method of molecular imaging that pinpoints hormonally active tissues in the body could change the course of treatment for a remarkable number of neuroendocrine cancer patients, say researchers at the Society of Nuclear Medicine's 59th Annual Meeting. An investigation of a molecular imaging method used to evaluate neuroendocrine patients...


Word of the Day
ween
  • To think; to imagine; to fancy.
  • To be of opinion; have the notion; think; imagine; suppose.
The word 'ween' comes from Middle English wene, from Old English wēn, wēna ("hope, weening, expectation"), from Proto-Germanic *wēniz, *wēnōn (“hope, expectation”), from Proto-Indo-European *wen- (“to strive, love, want, reach, win”).
