Molecular Imaging

Patients who practiced transcendental meditation and cardiac rehabilitation increased their myocardial blood flow by 20.7%.

Nuclear radiology is quickly evolving, but recruiting medical students into the field has been a challenge. A new study suggests young trainees aren't fully informed about the growing opportunity.

The reactor is smaller than most, operating at 2 megawatts, and requires less maintenance than larger reactors.

Radiology has undertaken many efforts to reduce patient exposure to radiation during imaging exams, and findings from a new report suggest those campaigns have made a significant impact.

The team found they could maintain the positive impact of therapy, while also minimizing its adverse effects.

The Food & Drug Administration issued a recall on Philips’ Forte Gamma Camera System Monday, Nov. 4, saying it could cause serious injury or possibly death.  

The algorithm can also reduce imaging time and improve the patient experience.

PET using a new voltage-sensitive tracer displayed promise for analyzing activity inside the mitochondria of lung cancer tumors, information that may be valuable for predicting a patient's response to treatment.

A team of Swedish researchers found that a hybrid planar and SPECT imaging method fell short in accurately measuring the absorbed treatment dose in some patients, but importantly, performed well in those with bone marrow metastases.

Canadian Nuclear Laboratories and TRIUMF, the country’s particle accelerator center, have successfully produced actinium-225—a rare isotope that can be used for novel cancer therapy treatments.

Exposure to radioiodine can lead to DNA damage in thyroid cells and other tissue, but new research suggests current radiation protection principles may not be sufficiently monitoring radiation exposure to nuclear medicine professionals.

Pairing multispectral optoacoustic tomography with ultrasound provided biomarker information that may better diagnose patient's with autoimmune diseases and thyroid nodules.
