NTM lung infections

NTM lung infections

Nontuberculous mycobacteria are part of a group of bacteria called mycobacteria. The non-tuberculous mycobacteria are, as the name suggests, mycobacteria that are not tuberculosis. They're also not leprosy, but they are the other members of the bacteria group termed mycobacteria. [More]
New report examines how public perceives role and responsibility of radiologists

New report examines how public perceives role and responsibility of radiologists

When it comes to visibility, radiologists, in many cases, are out of sight. They often receive and interpret images from afar, leaving a patient's referring physician or specialist to disclose the findings -- and, using the information supplied, answer questions about the diagnosis. [More]
