Scientists with the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) have used PET/CT with the radiotracer 18F-DPA-714 to find and longitudinally track brain inflammation in mice infected with the Zika virus.

Researchers have demonstrated an automated bone-removal algorithm that works with dual-energy CT to let physicians see, unobstructed by the skull, what’s going on in the brains of patients with intracranial hemorrhage following head trauma.

Students training to become radiologic technologists in the U.S. could and probably should join at least one professional society, organization or association at the state or national level in order to optimize their access to up-to-date learning resources and opportunities. However, many accredited rad-tech education programs either don’t mandate such participation or give it sufficient financial support.

A team of researchers have developed an algorithm that can spot structural changes in the brain related to Alzheimer’s on an MRI up to 10 years before symptoms appear.

PET/CT with fluorine-18-fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG), the most commonly used radiotracer for PET neuroimaging and cancer patient management, is effective for differentiating between tumors, metastases and lymphomas in the brain and central nervous system, according to a study conducted in India and published online Sept. 15 in Nuclear Medicine Communications.
