Using imaging to determine depth of DIEA recent study determined that magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and rectal endoscopic sonography (RES) are of significant, but different value in determining the presence and depth of deep infiltrating endometriosis (DIE).
Fetal anomalies in multiple gestation pregnanciesEarly imaging is key to detecting anomalies, some of which are unique to multiple gestations and some that also occur with singletons. Any anomaly that occurs in singletons can occur in 1 fetus in a multifetal pregnancy.
Researchers image single cell deaths in glaucoma patientsA new imaging technique can show the deaths of individual cells in people with glaucoma by labelling the cells with fluorescent dye, according to researchers. The approach might eventually be used to diagnosis the disease in its early stages or measure its progression.
Confocal scanner gives ophthalmologists valuable new toolMost ocular structures become luminescent for a short time when exposed to a light source of appropriate wavelength; this phenomenon is known as autofluorescence (AF). AF is due to the presence of fluorescent substances called fluorophores.
Optimal approaches to fibroid managementFibroids are extremely common in women of reproductive age. One large study reported that 70% of Caucasian and 80% of African-American women had at least one ultrasound- or pathology-confirmed fibroid by the end of their reproductive years. While many of these women experience no negative effects of fibroids on their reproductive function, a significant number are at increased risk of infertility, miscarriage, or poor obstetric outcomes.
How to do the Z technique in imagingFind out how to do the Z technique in ultrasound while looking for an IUD.
OCT + OCTA capable of imaging both structure and functionA new dual-modality imaging system adds optical coherence tomography angiography to conventional OCT to rapidly visualize blood flow in the retina and layers of choroidal neovascularization.
Hospitals vary widely in rate of CT scanningTertiary pediatric institutions differ greatly in how often they use computed tomography (CT) imaging, whether for emergency department (ED), inpatient, or observation encounters, and regardless of body region.
