This imaging procedure has the same basic aim as an X-ray: to see inside the body. Unlike an X-ray, however, PET scans use radioactive tracer drugs to ena...

Importance of Radiology Procedures
The branch of medicine that deals with diagnosis and providing treatment for a specific injury or illness with the help of imaging technology is called Radiology. It is also called radioscopy or clinical radiology. The term ‘imaging’ in radiology refers to the picture creation of the internal pattern of the human body with the help of radiation.Two common branches of the radiology field are - Diagnostic radiology and Interventional radiology. For cancer treatment, therapeutic radiation is used. The process of providing direct cancer treatment through radiation is called as radiat...

Advancements in infrared and its applications for Inspire FLIR Gimbal Cameras
FLIR stands for ‘forward looking infrared’ and the cameras made with FLIR technology are popularly known for enhancing night imaging with clarity. Mostly used by the defence or military personnel for effective surveillance, the Inspire FLIR Gimbal cameras are known for multiple advantages. They are also referred as thermal imaging cameras as they optimize the infrared radiation from various sensors to enhance visibility and clarity required for best quality imaging. Though they were initially used a lot by the defence professionals, today many other industries prefer them and there...

PET Scans Are Precise and Accurate for the Best Treatment Outcomes
In oncology, nuclear imaging tests have played a significant role in cancer treatment. Oncologists prefer using PET scans to determine the course of treatment because of their accuracy. The main advantage of a PET scan over an X-ray is that it can show how a specific part of the patient’s body is working, and not just how it looks.

Amyloid PET Scans Could Improve Dementia Diagnosis and Care
A new type of scan known as Amyloid PET imaging may be the key to better care and diagnosis of dementia. This PET scan can detect changes related to Alzheimer’s disease occurring in the brain. Researchers arrived at this conclusion after carefully analyzing results from a study of 11,000 people with dementia symptoms. When doctors saw the results of these scans, about two-thirds of them altered medications and related medical decisions. Over a third of the cases had their doctors changing the cause of the symptoms. The study was the first phase of a trial aimed at finding out the clini...

MRI Finds Breast Cancer Mammograms May Miss
Early detection of breast cancer is critical for opening the door on appropriate, potentially life-saving treatment. Mammograms serve as an important tool on the diagnostic front, but they may not offer the full insights doctors need to properly gauge full cancer presence and the severity of lesions. Research is finding that MRIs may prove superior on this front. Magnetic resonance imaging offers a more in-depth look inside breast tissue than a standard mammogram. It is especially useful in helping detect lesions in dense breast tissues. A recent study, in fact, showed that MRIs were ...

Your Doctor Ordered a PET-CT Scan? Here?s What You Need to Know
Most people have heard of positron emission tomography scans, or PET for short. Even more have probably heard about computerized tomography (CT) scans or have even had them. Many, however, may be a little confused when their doctors order PET-CT scans. This routine imaging test combines the benefits of both the PET and CT scans into a single procedure. This test is designed to provide information that is much more highly detailed than either test can provide on its own.A CT scan is designed to take X-rays from a number of points around the body. The PET scan uses a low-dose radioactive trace...

What are the diagnostic techniques to diagnose the bladder cancer?
What is the cancer grade level and how it is determined?Diagnosis of bladder cancer can be done in many ways. These include the normal imaging techniques and other as well. The cancer grade determines the extent of cancer. Therefore, it is important to determine the grade level to get the proper treatment for bladder cancer.Bladder cancers are of three types. It occurs mostly in the USA. Cancer can be easily treated in the early stages while in the last stages it can lead to death as well. So, it is important to treat it. But more than treatment, it is first important to diagnose the disea...

PET Scans Enable More Targeted Cancer Treatments
In the fight against cancer, knowledge is often the key to putting a patient on a path that will lead to successful treatment. While CT scans and X-rays can help determine that tumors are present and provide some valuable information, they lack in the ability to provide real-time, actionable data meant to tailor treatments directly to a patient. As positron emission tomography, or PET scans, become more sophisticated, it is these tests that are shining in providing the type of information doctors truly need to make potentially lifesaving decisions on a case-by-case basis.PET scans are design...
