MRI Study Finds Men, “Blushing Individuals” More Sensitive to Alcohol

According to the reports of research conducted at China’s Shantou University, the findings of which were published in the American Journal of Neuroradiology, March edition, men are more sensitive to alcohol consumption with viewable signs like blushing. Scanning report from different types of MRI techniques shows that regular alcohol intake correlated with certain regional changes […]

Imaging Technique Provides Insight into Speech Development

Our speech development is affected by numerous factors, including the pathway of the brain. What we hear and derive affects individual language development significantly. A research team from New York University used different imaging techniques to determine the effect of the brain’s pathways and its contribution to speech development. Published on March 4, the research […]

Can CDS Reduce Waste?

There is a growing concern about the overuse of healthcare resources, which includes imaging. Researchers are on a mission to determine if a clinical decision support (CDS) tool can help less experienced clinicians reduce inappropriate use of imaging. A study conducted by a single institution analyzed over 5000 CT and MRI imaging orders collected before […]

Is CDS the answer for Ordering Appropriately?

It is a common practice to overuse healthcare resources, which includes imaging. House staff physicians have been overusing resources leading to concerns arising repeatedly. Researchers have recently developed a clinical decision support (CDS) tool that helps clinicians with less experience to reduce inappropriate imaging orders. The study team analyzed over 5000 CT and MRI orders […]

MRI Used to Check for Psychosis

A recent study published in the ‘Proceedings of the National Academy of Science’, has interdenominational-sensitive MRI (NM-MRI) as a potential biomarker of psychosis. The test is a marker of dopamine function in patients of schizophrenia. It indicates the severity of various psychotic symptoms. The test was initially used to detect neuron loss in neurodegenerative patients. But, […]

Imaging Proximity and Convenience Matter

Follow-up imaging is an important requirement for patients to ensure complete healing. However, when it comes to the location of imaging facilities, new research found that patients usually come back to the same place for follow-up imaging where they had gone for initial imaging. In the research, authors included over 1000 cases of abdominal ultrasound, […]

fMRI and Consciousness

In the past few years, Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) of the human brain has been harnessed as an innovative tool to study consciousness. Functional MRI examinations now offer an integral source of valuable insights pertaining to the “modeling of integrative brain functions.” The human brain in its fully conscious, partially conscious, and vegetative conditions […]

Radiologist Base Pay At 371K and 5th Most Needed Specialty

Radiologists or radiologic technologists are in huge demand. It is evident from many latest reports that place radiology among the top medical specialties year after year. Here’s what the 2018 Report of Merritt Hawkins presents: Another citation is from the Medscape Radiologist Compensation Report 2018 that shows: All these reports confirm that more numbers of […]

10.5 Tesla MRI and More

Introduction – 10.5 Tesla MRI Innovations change medical practices and healthcare in an ever-evolving dimension. Medical history was made by the University of Minnesota when scientists performed the world’s first magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the whole human body at 10.5 Tesla using a Siemens MAGNETOM 10.5 Tesla MRI, developed in 2013 and funded by […]
