PET/CT superior to MRI for detecting spinal bone metastases
Gallium-68 (Ga-68) DOTATATE PET/CT appears to be the best approach for detecting spinal bone metastases in patients with certain neuroendocrine tumors, according to researchers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, MD. In a study of patients with pheochromocytomas and paragangliomas (PPGLs), the group found the approach was superior to F-18 FDG-PET/CT, MRI of the spine, whole-body CT, and whole-body MRI. The finding is significant regarding efforts to prevent serious complications in these patients, noted lead author Abhishek Jha, MD, and colleagues. “Bone metastases weaken and destroy skeletal tissue...

Novel risk prediction model improves LCS uptake
A novel risk prediction model used in the Ontario Lung Cancer Screening Pilot increased the uptake of lung cancer screening among eligible Canadians, researchers have found. A team led by Martin C. Tammemägi, PhD, of Brock University in St. Catharines, Ontario, reported that use of the model translated to an adherence rate to annual recall and early surveillance scans and clinical investigations of more than 85%. The findings were published April 19 in Nature Medicine. Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death around the world, and research has shown that low-dose CT (LDCT) lung cancer screening of high-risk indi...
