George the unstoppable conquers leg-length discrepancy
I stand here today with two legs the same length, thanks to Dr. Kasser, but I am grateful to him for so much more. People tell me all the time that I have a positive attitude. Perhaps that’s because, thanks to Dr. Kasser, I believe that anything is possible. George Davies, a senior at Bancroft School in Worcester, Massachusetts, faces every challenge, every obstacle and every situation with a sense of what’s possible.

Here's Why We Struggle To Make Connections With Our Physicians -- And Why It Matters
Americans don’t always trust their doctors, and here’s the proof: a 2012 survey found that just 34 percent of U.S. adults said they had “great confidence in the leaders of the medical profession” -- a significant drop from 76 percent in 1966. A 2015 study from ZocDoc confirms this widening distrust of medical professionals. According to the study, 30 percent of women and 23 percent of men have lied to their doctors through omission, or by telling “white lies” -- most often in response questions relating to diet and fitness routines and smoking and alcohol use -- due to embarrassment or ...

Your Dentist Is More Important to Your General Health Than You May Realize
Most people view their twice-yearly visits to the dentist as little more than a cleaning and a check-up. But in reality, those visits are much more important than you probably realize. That's because your dentist is looking inside your mouth for a lot more than cavities. Plenty of medical conditions -- including some alarming ones! -- manifest in the mouth, which is the part of your body your dentist knows the most about. In fact, it's possible that your dentist is able to alert you of a potentially serious condition long before you even think about going to a primary care doctor. Here's a list of some of the medical cond...

Breast Cancer Screening and Digital Mammography
Digital mammography compares well with film mammography -- both use x-rays to take images of your breast. This is an effective way to screen for breast cancer. Women who are under 50, premenopausal, and have dense breast tissue will benefit the most from digital mammograms. (Source: About.com Breast Cancer)

Eight-year-old Annabel Beam was on a quest to find the perfect gift.

Colon Cancer Screening: What Are the Options?
By Stacy Simon No one looks forward to a colonoscopy, or the bowel prep that goes with it. But colon screening – testing to look for cancer before symptoms start – helps saves lives. Screening can find colon cancer early when it’s small and easier to treat, or even prevent it altogether. Colonoscopy, however, is just one of many tests that can be used to look for colon cancer.

A scientific advisory panel for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has begun weighing possible upgrades to four of the nation's top sources of high-energy x-rays and neutron beams. For years, the giant machines—two x-ray synchrotrons, an x-ray free electron laser, and a neutron accelerator—have given thousands of scientists unparalleled close-up views of the molecules that make up materials and living organisms. Recently, however, researchers say the facilities have been losing ground to counterparts in Europe, Asia, and South America.

BU researchers examine how spinal structure affects fracture rate
A Boston University mechanical engineering professor is attempting to improve spinal fractures predictions using an unusual set of tools – the same used for analyzing stress and strain on bridges and buildings. Spine fractures affect approximately 20% of men over 50 and 40% of women over 80, according to a report from Boston University. Despite the high rate of occurrence, spine fractures are difficult to predict and get less attention than hip fractures, despite being far more common. Currently, spine fracture risk is assessed through bone density scans which measure how much bone a patient has and how dense it...

Shoulder Pain: It May Be an Easy Fix
Shoulder pain at night, pain when lifting a briefcase, pain with overhead activities -- even pain while brushing your hair can be caused by shoulder impingement. To understand shoulder pain, you first have to know a bit about how the shoulder is held together: In large part by the rotator cuff and acromion. The rotator cuff is made up of tendons from the muscles that lift and guide shoulder motion. The acromion is the bone on top of the shoulder; it acts as a roof to the shoulder joint. When the space between the tendons and the bony roof narrows--which can be caused by bone spurs or inflammation--impingement oc...

In recent years, the American public has clamored for a more integrative and holistic medical model, in which doctors are equipped not only to write prescriptions and perform procedures, but also to guide patients in a whole-being/whole-life approach to health. We actually need a medical culture that can support doctors, as well as patients, in this regard. Medicine is one of the most demanding environments in which to work. For starters, the hours can be brutal, especially early on. By way of example, it was only a decade ago that medical residency workload was decreased to 80 hours a week.

Solving the 5,000-Year-Old Murder of Otzi the Iceman
In 1991, the mummified body of a 5,000-year-old murder victim was discovered in melting ice at a rock-gully crime scene high in the Italian Otzal Alps. Nicknamed "Otzi", the estimated 45-year-old man and his possessions were incredibly well preserved. His skin, hair, bones, and organs were cryopreserved in time, allowing archeological researchers a phenomenal insight into human life in the Copper Age. The frozen corpse also gave modern science the opportunity to forensically investigate and positively determine how Otzi the Iceman was killed. The story began on a sunny September day, when two hikers were traversi...

Follow me at @ashishkjha Half a century ago, physicians had few options for diagnostic tests to obtain images of the body. Worried about a brain tumor? A physician might order a pneumo-encephalogram (PEG), which entailed injecting air into the spinal cord and taking x-rays of the head, hoping to spot an abnormality. Tests like these were painful and ineffective, leading physicians to shy away from excessive imaging.
