Magnetic resonance-based wearable technology accounts for patient movement for clearer data reconstruction and fewer imaging artifacts One of the biggest hurdles of hybrid positron emission tomography and magnetic resonance (PET/MR) imaging is the prevalence of motion artifacts–blurring and ghostly visual anomalies caused by patient motion on the table during imaging. An MR technology has now been designed for PET/MR that employs tiny radiofrequency solenoids–metal coils...

Novel approach to a molecular imaging technique helps doctors identify diabetic foot infection and rule out a non-infectious complication that develops in nerve-damaged joints Researchers are kick-starting better diabetic foot care and promoting reduced radiation dose with a new take on a hybrid molecular imaging technique. By targeting both bone cell activity and immune response and improving imaging data interpretation, doctors can better distinguish diabetic foot infection from another...

Molecular imaging technique detects arterial disease in the heart earlier and in finer detail than other leading imaging methods Coronary artery disease (CAD) is one of the world´s most prevalent and silent killers. Positron emission tomography (PET), which images miniscule abnormalities in cellular metabolism, can tip off clinicians about cardiac disasters waiting to happen– including sudden death from a heart attack–better than standard angiography, researchers revealed...

A new stress test protocol that investigates reducing the use of perfusion imaging in low risk patients undergoing SPECT myocardial perfusion imaging for possible angina symptoms was found to be diagnostically safe, revealed a US retrospective analysis. The study, reported as an abstract´ at the International Conference on Nuclear Cardiology and Cardiac CT (ICNC11) May 5 to May 8 in Berlin, Germany, predicted that using exercise ECG stress testing alone in patients with high exercise...
