Molecular Imaging

 

For years now, research has emerged to show the effects of playing football—including repetitive concussive and sub-concussive hits—may lead to major brain damage. Now, a new study further explores the topic and affirms that players in the National Football League (NFL) could be at a higher risk for brain injuries.

Putting assumptions to rest in neuroscience, a group of researchers used an MRI approach and found that the connectivity patterns in your brain are unique to you.

Ionizing radiation from medical scans may be implicated in Alzheimer’s disease, according to a Danish study published in Oncotarget.

Katrina Pitas, vice president of business development for SHINE Medial Technologies, is in St. Louis this week to speak at the 2016 Mo-99 Topical Meeting. While preparing for her presentation, she spoke with Health Imaging about what SHINE has been up to this year and what she will be discussing at the meeting. 

Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals announced Aug. 24 it has reached an agreement to sell its nuclear imaging business to IBA Molecular (IBAM) for $690 million.
