Abstract Positron emission mammography (PEM) has higher detection sensitivity for breast cancer compared with whole-body positron emission tomography (PET) due to higher spatial resolution. We have developed a new PEM device with high resolution over a wide field of view. This PEM device comprises novel scintillation crystals, praseodymium-doped lutetium aluminum garnet (Pr:LuAG). In the present study, the clinical use of the newly developed PEM for the detection of small breast cancer was compared with that of the conventional PET-computed tomography (PET/CT). Eighty-two patients with breast cancer less than 20 m...

Conclusion: The results from this NMA indicate that the diagnostic value of the BSGI, MG + SMM, MRI and CE-MRI methods for BC were relatively higher in terms of sensitivity, specificity and accuracy.Cell Physiol Biochem 2018;46:2041 –2055

Conclusion: In colonic metastases, tumor markers might not be totally reliable. In asymptomatic cases, clinical conditions might be underappreciated, missing local or distant recurrence. CT and PET/CT scan might be useful in diagnosing small volume diseases, and steering endoscopist toward GI metastasis originating from the breast. CESM represents a tolerable and feasible tool that rules out multicentricity and multifocality of breast localization. Moreover, particular patients could tolerate it better than magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Silicon Valley-based tech giant, NVIDIA presented its new medical imaging supercomputer, CLARA at the company’s yearly GPU Tech Conference last week. The artificial intelligence-powered platform is able to take even 15-year-old ultrasound images and augment them with visualized, 3D information in order to provide better insight for diagnosticians and advance the process of finding and curing diseases. Using the power of artificial intelligence to modernize medical imaging Jensen Huang, NVIDIA’s CEO said in his keynote speech how the company is aiming for „revolutionizing modern medical imaging using compu...

Siemens (NYSE:SI) Healthineers said today that it won FDA clearance for its Somatom Edge plus computed tomography machine. The company said the newly cleared device features its FAST integrated workflow and FAST 3D camera, which it claims is the first patient positioning system powered by artificial intelligence. The scanner also includes automated scan preparation and customized patient dosage capabilities, Siemens said. Siemens said that the FAST 3D camera uses infrared technology and AI to recognize anatomical landmarks and correctly position the system for more accurate patient scanning, which it claims impro...
