DNA-based test can spot cancer recurrence a year before conventional scans
‘Liquid biopsy’ diagnosed cancer recurrence up to a year before CT scans are able to in major lung cancer trial, and could buy crucial time for doctorsA revolutionary blood test has been shown to diagnose the recurrence of cancer up to a year in advance of conventional scans in a major lung cancer trial.The test, known as a liquid biopsy, could buy crucial time for doctors by indicating that cancer is growing in the body when tumours are not yet detectable on CT scans and long before the patient becomes aware of physical symptoms.Continue reading...

Study Finds That EMS Activation of Stroke Cases Using Pulsara Stop Stroke Is Associated With Faster Treatment Times Than Activation in the Emergency Department
April 24, 2017   Bozeman, MT — Duke University School of Medicine researchers found that patients with stroke received faster treatment when emergency medical services (EMS) activated the stroke team from the field than patients who presented by other methods of arrival. The researchers conducted a retrospective analysis of 12 major medical centers that used Pulsara’s Stop Stroke, a mobile application that allows EMS transporting a stroke patient to notify emergency department staff and stroke specialists with the tap of a button on a smart phone.

Uninsured Americans Are Just 1 Traumatic Injury Away From Financial Ruin
This study shows that someone who is in a car accident, or is mugged, or experiences sudden trauma for some other reason, risks being driven to financial ruin,” he added. “In essence, unless you’re Bill Gates, you could be at risk of financial catastrophe if you fall seriously ill,” said Himmelstein, who was not involved with the study. The uninsured are not the only ones suffering the consequences of catastrophic health expenditures, Scott said. When hospitals fail to collect, they pass the costs onto paying customers and health-insurance companies, he said. “More uncompensated care leads to ...

Best way to diagnose head injuries in children and minimize CT scans
In a trial involving more than 20,000 children, researchers compared the sensitivities of three clinical decision rules for head injuries. The researchers found that only one, the PECARN from the US, did not miss a single child requiring neurosurgery. The study will help inform the use of the clinical rules by clinicians and hospitals and could help minimize the use of CT scans to detect brain injuries. (Source: ScienceDaily Headlines)

Simplify Medical launches pivotal study of MRI-conditional cervical disc
Simplify Medical said today that it launched a pivotal study of its eponymous cervical disc, which is designed to be safe during magnetic resonance imaging scans. Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Simplify said the implant is “optimized” for MRI scans in that it’s designed to eliminate the imaging artifact created by the metals used in some artificial disc replacements, using a PEEK-on-ceramic construction. The aim is to eliminate the need for computed tomography scans after implantation and the attendant patient exposure to ionizing radiation. The Simplify disc won CE Mark approval in the European U...

Patients at hospital-based primary clinics are more likely to get unnecessary tests and services
People with back pain, headaches and upper respiratory infections are more likely to receive tests and services of little diagnostic or therapeutic value — so-called low-value care — when they visit primary care clinics at hospitals rather than at community-based primary care clinics.A national study led by researchers at theDavid Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and Harvard Medical School found that the key factor driving the disparity appears to be the location of the clinic, rather than whether the clinic is owned by a hospital or a physician. In fact, aside from referring patients to specialists slightly m...
