New CT scan method lowers radiation exposure

The technique, demonstrated on a small sample in a micro CT scanner, could potentially be adapted for medical scanners and used to reduce the amount of radiation millions of people are exposed to each year. A computerised tomography (CT) scan is a form of X-ray that creates very accurate cross-sectional views of the inside of...

Keeping medical imaging safe for children

“The risks of the radiation are incredibly small, but still, we try to eliminate them when we can,” Methratta said. Because the cells in children’s bodies are not fully mature, they can be more sensitive to radiation in contrast to adults. Children also have more years ahead of them in which long-term effects of radiation...

No more biopsy? Handheld device could painlessly identify skin cancers

Source: A new device uses millimeter-wave imaging (the same technology used in airport security scanners) to scan a patient’s skin to detect if they have skin cancer. Millimeter-wave rays harmlessly penetrate about 2mm into human skin, so the team’s imaging technology provides a clear 3D map of scanned skin lesions.

Quantitative MRI can detect subtle differences in the brain structure of premature babies

Source: Premature babies who develop abnormalities like autism and cerebral palsy as teenagers have subtle differences in brain structure that can be detected on quantitative MRI (qMRI), according to a new study in the journal Radiology. These findings show the potential for qMRI, which obtains numerical measurements, to help improve outcomes for the growing numbers of...
