With MS affecting roughly 2.3 million people around the world, clinicians are detecting MS through MRI exams that correlate with prognosis and disability. Additionally, structured reporting (SR) of MRI exams from patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) provide more substantial information for clinical decision making than non-structured reporting (NSR), according to a recent study published in the American Journal of Roentgenology.  

By 2030, an estimated 65.7 million people are predicted to be affected by Alzheimer’s disease (AD), a 30 million person jump from today’s total. But, there’s increasing evidence that biomarkers coupled with the correct imaging technique may provide crucial insights into the disease.

According to a recent National Institutes of Health (NIH) press release, new research suggests that genetic variations in the lungs can differentiate between individuals who have stably low lung function early in life (that steadily declines with age) versus those who are at risk for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) due to smoking.  

Researchers from the Chinese University of Hong Kong and Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago have combined international expertise and two types of technology to predict how well a deaf child can learn language after receiving cochlear implant surgery. 

A new study published in the January issue of the Journal of Ultrasound in Medicine has shown that a 3D power Doppler ultrasound can more accurately determine altered fetal growth restriction (FGR) in fetuses vulnerable to developing abnormal cerebral vascular flow patterns than a standard 2D Doppler ultrasound.
