UW–Madison center continues to offer accurate radiation treatment

As radiation sources used to map disease and attack cancer grow in number and complexity, a University of Wisconsin-Madison center continues to offer the last word on accurate radiation doses. [More]
Research points to potential use of radiotherapy in treating systemic cancer

Research points to potential use of radiotherapy in treating systemic cancer

An international team of researchers lead by the University of Granada has proven that mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) may be used as enhancer agents of local and systemic effects of radiotherapy, that is to say, those which affect the irradiated tumour and tumour cells located at a certain distance of the irradiated ones.

Children with sensory processing disorder have altered pathways for brain connectivity

Children with sensory processing disorder have altered pathways for brain connectivity

Researchers at UC San Francisco have found that boys and girls with sensory processing disorder (SPD) have altered pathways for brain connectivity when compared to typically developing children, and the difference predicts challenges with auditory and tactile processing. [More]

New imaging test detects prostate cancer much better than any other tests in use today

New imaging test detects prostate cancer much better than any other tests in use today

Researchers at Thomas Jefferson University have found the method they developed to image the prostate appears to be much better at detecting prostate cancer than any other test — radiographical, biopsy or blood — in use today. [More]
New method could improve accurate diagnosis of ovarian cancer before surgery

New method could improve accurate diagnosis of ovarian cancer before surgery

In a landmark study, investigators from Europe propose a new and simple method to assess the risk of malignancy of women with an adnexal mass. The method identified between 89-99% of patients with ovarian cancer using the results of ultrasound examination, which can be obtained in referral and non-referral centers. [More]

Biennial mammograms starting at age 50 very safe for women

Biennial mammograms starting at age 50 very safe for women

In a comprehensive modeling study, researchers from UC Davis and other institutions have found that breast cancer screening with digital mammography poses only a small risk of radiation-induced breast cancer for most women. However, the research showed increased risk for women with large breasts or breast implants, who must often receive extra screening views, increasing their radiation exposure. [More]
New USPSTF breast cancer screening recommendations may result in lethal consequences for women

New USPSTF breast cancer screening recommendations may result in lethal consequences for women

If followed, new U.S. Preventive Services Task Force breast cancer screening recommendations will result in thousands of unnecessary deaths each year and thousands more women enduring extensive and expensive treatment than if their cancer had been found early by an annual mammogram. [More]
Innovative recovery program for colorectal surgery patients could reduce lengths of hospital stay, save money

Innovative recovery program for colorectal surgery patients could reduce lengths of hospital stay, save money

The cost of implementing an innovative quality improvement program that helps colorectal surgery patients recover faster is more than offset by savings from their reduced lengths of stay at hospitals of any size. [More]
