Lack of studies regarding benefit / Only few comparative studies on diagnostic accuracy For patients with bone and soft tissue tumors, the study data currently available allow no robust conclusions as to the advantages and disadvantages of using positron emission tomography (PET), alone or in combination with computed tomography (CT). This is because no studies have directly compared the benefit of these imaging techniques with conventional diagnostics. And the few available studies on...

People with multiple sclerosis (MS) who have cognitive problems, or problems with memory, attention, and concentration, have more damage to areas of the brain involved in cognitive processes than people with MS who do not have cognitive problems, according to a study published in the March 6, 2013, online issue of Neurology, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology. The study used a type of MRI brain scan called diffusion tensor imaging along with regular MRI scans to...

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online An international team of researchers led by Cornell University reveals that it is possible to tell who a person is thinking about by analyzing images of his or her brain. Nathan Spreng, assistant professor of human development in Cornell's College of Human Ecology, and his colleagues demonstrate that our mental models of people produce unique patterns of brain activation, which can be detected using advanced imaging techniques....
