CT imaging

Know the benefits of adopting neuroimaging
Know the benefits of adopting neuroimagingNeuroimaging can help ODs better treat patients with possible tumor, vascular disorder, or demyelinating disease. CT scans are used for bone fractures and vascular disorders as well as orbital and pituitary tumors. MRIs are best gliomas and menigiomas and screening for vascular disorders. Communicate to radiology patient history and what you are trying to rule out when ordering tests.
Cancer risk from CT low, but can be further reducedThe risk of cancer is slightly elevated in patients who undergo computed tomography scans, according to the authors of an international study, who reported that incidence was significantly increased for urinary tract cancer and six other solid tumors.
PET/MR imaging efficacious for mapping recurrent prostate cancerA relatively new imaging system demonstrates a higher capacity for mapping recurrent prostate cancer than integrated positron emission tomography and computed tomography, researchers recently reported at the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging annual meeting in Vancouver, British Columbia.
CT use in children more than doubled from 1996-2005The use of computed tomography scans of the head, abdomen/pelvis, chest, or spine in children younger than 14 years of age more than doubled from 1996 to 2005, according to a study of seven U.S. health care systems.
