Better Imaging for Prostate Cancer Patients?
The objective [of LOCATE] was to access the impact of positron imaging for patient management,” Peter Gardiner, Blue Earth Diagnostics CMO, told MD+DI. “These were men with recurrent prostate cancer.” For the LOCATE trial 213 men with biochemically recurrent prostate cancer were evaluated with 18F-fluciclovine PET/CT after having negative or equivocal findings on conventional imaging, such as a bone scan, CT or MRI. This first prospective multi-center study was conducted at 15 sites in the U.S., including both private practices and academic settings. It focused on the association between scan positivity a...

Reinventing the Healthcare Continuum with Machine Data Analytics
As healthcare delivery organizations navigate the dual challenges of providing high-quality medical care while facing tougher cost control measures from insurance carriers and government entities, one strategy they are turning to is optimization of both expensive equipment, as well as the entire ecosystem in which these assets operate. This is no small task, as capital expenditures for these machines totaled more than $350 billion in 2016.[1] Innovators in many industries have adopted asset optimization strategies for several years. Now, leaders in healthcare equipment manufacturing are turning to this approach by implemen...

Personalized Lung Cancer Screening Tool Adds Asbestos Exposure
A University of Michigan and Veterans Affairs research team has developed a novel, personalized lung cancer screening tool that accounts for past asbestos exposure. Asbestos exposure is best known as the primary cause of mesothelioma, but it also significantly increases the chance of developing lung cancer. Adding asbestos to the lung-cancer screening tool also should help identify mesothelioma in its earliest stages, when it is most treatable. Mesothelioma is not usually diagnosed until it has progressed into stage 3 or stage 4, when treatment is more palliative than potentially curative. The tool is designed to better i...
