Texting and driving getting worse says CAA survey

first_imgOTTAWA – A survey suggests most Canadians believe texting and driving is getting worse despite police crackdowns and extensive public education efforts.In the November survey conducted by the Canadian Automobile Association, 83 per cent of respondents said they believe texting while driving is a bigger problem now than it was three years ago.The CAA survey also shows a whopping 96 per cent of respondents say drivers who text and drive are a threat to their safety on the road and that texting and driving is now tied with drunk driving as the top road safety concern among Canadians.The CAA also says other forms of distraction are increasingly an issue, such as emailing while driving, drivers talking on cell phones and drivers talking to or interacting with their in-car technologies.The survey of 2,003 Canadians has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.19 per cent, 19 times out of 20.“Despite anti-texting and driving laws in all provinces across the country and several years of public education campaigns, Canadians still don’t seem to be getting the message,” said CAA chief strategy officer Jeff Walker.“Studies show drivers are as much as 23 times more likely to get into a collision when they text and drive. It’s important we all put our devices down and stay focused on the road,” he said.last_img read more

Youth overdose is grounds for secure care treatment pediatrician tells inquest

first_imgVICTORIA — A British Columbia pediatrician who treats children and youth struggling with substance abuse issues says he supports placing young people in treatment facilities against their will if they have suffered an overdose.Dr. Tom Warshawski told a coroner’s inquest into the death of 16-year-old Elliot Eurchuk that an overdose is a life and death situation where a young person is being controlled by the potentially deadly drugs and is not in control of their thinking.Warshawski says committing young people to secure treatment facilities where they cannot leave for a time period at least allows doctors to help clean the drugs out of their systems and open their minds to the possibility of future treatment.Eurchuk died of an overdose in 2018 about two months after he was forcefully admitted to a Victoria youth treatment ward following an overdose at hospital while undergoing treatment for a blood infection common to intravenous drug users.Eurchuk’s parents, Rachel Staples and Brock Eurchuk, have testified efforts to help their son were thwarted by medical privacy laws that permitted withholding information about the teen’s addiction issues.Warshawski says he is part of a working group that has provided recent research documents about secure care treatment for young people to B.C.’s Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Mental Health and Addictions.Former B.C. provincial health officer Perry Kendall is scheduled to testify at the inquest.The inquest is expected to wrap up today after hearing from more than 40 witnesses over eight days.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Ohio State mens basketball set for top15 showdown with Louisville

OSU freshman guard D’Angelo Russell (0) dribbles the ball up the floor during a game against James Madison on Nov. 28 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 73-56.Credit: Samantha Hollingshead / For The LanternAfter securing five double-digit victories at home to begin the season, the No. 14 Ohio State men’s basketball team is set to hit the road to take on a top-five opponent.OSU (5-0) will look to pass a major test against No. 5 Louisville (5-0) in Louisville, Ky., on Tuesday.For the four freshmen in OSU’s rotation, including guard D’Angelo Russell, the game will mark the first on the road in their collegiate careers.“I’m definitely looking forward to the atmosphere,” Russell said.However, senior guard Shannon Scott said he has been stressing to the younger players to not think too much of Tuesday’s challenge.“It’s another game, really. At the end of the day, somebody’s going to have a win and somebody’s going to have a loss,” Scott said. “It’s not really a special game where we have to feel like if we lose this game we can’t play no more basketball for the rest of our lives.”Despite being an away game for OSU, the game will be played at home for Russell.Russell is a Louisville native, though he played his final three years of high school basketball at Montverde Academy outside Orlando, Fla.The freshman said he has had the game circled on his calendar all year, and is looking forward to playing in his hometown.“It’s definitely a dream come true, to either play with them or play against them,” Russell said.Russell, the leading scorer for the Buckeyes this season, said Louisville offered him a scholarship, but he preferred the “vibe” he felt when he visited OSU.OSU coach Thad Matta said Russell’s hometown school did not present a large obstacle in landing the 2014 McDonald’s All-American.“I don’t honestly remember Louisville being hot and heavy after him,” he said.Russell said he has played with several players on the Cardinals’ roster, including his former Louisville Magic AAU teammate and freshman guard Quentin Snider.Louisville comes into the game ranked fifth in the country in rebounding margin at +13.6 per game, while OSU ranks 64th.Scott said avoiding that trend would be a key for the Buckeyes.“We know Louisville’s one of the best, if not the best, rebounding team in the country, so we know we’re going to have to find a way to keep them off the boards,” he said.Matta agreed with his point guard’s assessment that a major key to the game will be the battle on the glass.“I think that they do a tremendous job of getting on the glass and not only getting put-backs but keeping the ball alive, knocking them out, those types of things. And they’re big. They have a very unique team in terms of how they play,” Matta said.Louisville has four players averaging more than 11 points per game, led by forward Montrezl Harrell.Matta had high praise for the junior, who is leading the team in points and rebounds per game.“He’s special,” Matta said. “He plays at a high level, a high motor, very energetic. He’s got a lot of different ways that he scores.”The coach had additional levels of praise for Louisville coach Rick Pitino, a two-time national champion.“I view coach Pitino as one of the all-time greats in this profession,” Matta said.However, despite the respect he has for the opponent, Matta said that the unselfishness coming from his starting backcourt of Scott and Russell has given him confidence that OSU can come out of Kentucky with a victory.“I love the fact that both D’Angelo and Shannon have had great command of our offense, and in a game like tomorrow night, they’re going to have to be able to do it,” he said. “They’re going to have to make quick reads and good decisions, and I feel pretty comfortable with their ability to do that.”Russell leads the Buckeyes in scoring with 18 points per game and has added 5.4 assists per contest, while Scott leads the nation in assists with 10.4 per game.Louisville and OSU each rank in the top-10 for longest active NCAA Tournament appearance streaks, at eight and six years, respectively. The Cardinals cut down the nets in 2013 after defeating Michigan in the championship game.Regardless of the result Tuesday night, Matta said that both playing on the road for the first time and facing an opponent as strong as Louisville will give him insight into his team moving forward.“Tomorrow night, at the conclusion of the game, we’ll know a little bit more about our team and we’ll be a better team coming out of it,” he said.Tip is set for 9:30 p.m. read more

Video shows air crash victim on the runway before she was hit

first_imgA VIDEO FROM the helmet camera of a firefighter responding to the crash landing of an Asiana Airlines flight in San Francisco shows at least one rescuer was aware someone was on the ground outside the aircraft and even warned a colleague.Yet two fire trucks subsequently ran over an injured passenger.The video, first aired by CBS News on Tuesday, shows the girl, 16-year-old Ye Meng Yuan, lying in the grass before she was struck, according to an attorney for her family. A coroner concluded she was alive at the time and died when she was later hit by a fire truck.In the video, a firefighter with a helmet camera tells the driver of a fire truck that there’s a person in front of him. A fire truck-mounted camera shows a firefighter directing the truck away from the person.What’s not clear from the video is why rescuers didn’t try to move or clearly mark the presence of the person on the ground during the chaotic aftermath of the 6 July crash at San Francisco International Airport.(AssociatedPress/YouTube)The video, which was released to The Associated Press yesterday by attorneys for the girl’s family, reflected much of what officials have said, only with more detail.About 15 minutes after the driver of the fire truck was alerted to the girl’s presence, the video shows that same truck running over her, according to CBS. Footage of her being run over was not aired in the CBS News broadcast.The helmet camera shows another truck driving over her minutes after that, according to CBS News, which said it obtained the video from a person close to Yuan’s family.The San Francisco Chronicle first reported on the video’s content, but did not release the video publicly.It’s still unknown how Yuan got out of the plane.“At least five firefighters knew of her presence before she was covered in foam. Nobody examined her, nobody touched her, nobody protected her, moved her or did anything to take her out of harm’s way, and then they abandoned her there,” said Anthony Tarricone, an attorney for Yuan’s family, which has filed a legal claim against the City of San Francisco.San Francisco fire spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge said on  she could not comment on the video because of the pending litigation.In all, 304 of the 307 people aboard the Asiana flight survived after the airliner slammed into a seawall at the end of a runway during final approach for landing.Read: Asiana chief defends ‘experienced’ pilots as investigators question themRead: Passenger survives plane crash while capturing it on cameralast_img read more

Flamethrower Gloves Look Awesome Torch Everything

first_img[via Gadjitz] If you think this is some kind of secret military project going on behind the scenes at DARPA, you’d be wrong: these how-to flamethrower gloves are actually the product of the special effects and design team at J&M Special Effects, who were interested in coming up with a system that could shoot real flame from a stage or movie set performer’s hands with very real effect. The guys at J&M note that the system is a prototype, and they’re not finished working on it: future iterations will be more compact and the hoses for the propellant will be streamlined and closer to the performer’s body so they can be hidden under clothing or a costume. The end result looks amazing, with the flame literally erupting from the palms of the wearer’s hands.

Astro the robot dog kinda sorta looks like a real dog

first_img Tags Post a comment See Spot twerk: Boston Dynamics robot dog can shake its booty Boston Dynamics robots rated by Robopocalypse threat level Enlarge ImageAstro looks ready for anything. Alex Dolce There’s a spectrum between cute and creepy when it comes to robot dogs. Sony Aibo: cute. Boston Dynamics SpotMini: creepy. We’ve finally discovered some middle ground: Florida Atlantic University’s Astro. Astro is a four-legged robodog that responds to voice commands. He can move forward, stop and sit on command and doesn’t have the urge to go chase squirrels.  Robots Sony Share your voice Sci-Tech 18 Photos 0 Astro is trying to think like a dog thanks to artificial intelligence and deep learning technology in his computer “brain.” The research team behind the robodog wants to teach him to respond to hand signals, colors and multiple languages while also recognizing different people.The uses for a robot like Astro are many. He could sniff out explosives residue for law enforcement, act as a service dog or be an assistant for first responders. The FAU team, which includes psychologists, neuroscientists, artists and biologists, hopes to make Astro so smart he can make decisions on the fly based on a database of experiences.Unlike Sony’s dainty Aibo robopet, Astro isn’t much of a lap dog. He weighs 100 pounds (45 kilograms). He’s still in the equivalent of puppy school for robots, but he could grow up to be quite a bit smarter than the average robodog.

New method for sequencing genome in a single cell

Explore further New DNA analysis thousand times more sensitive More information: Genome-Wide Detection of Single-Nucleotide and Copy-Number Variations of a Single Human Cell, Science, 21 December 2012: Vol. 338 no. 6114 pp. 1622-1626. DOI: 10.1126/science.1229164ABSTRACTKindred cells can have different genomes because of dynamic changes in DNA. Single-cell sequencing is needed to characterize these genomic differences but has been hindered by whole-genome amplification bias, resulting in low genome coverage. Here, we report on a new amplification method—multiple annealing and looping-based amplification cycles (MALBAC)—that offers high uniformity across the genome. Sequencing MALBAC-amplified DNA achieves 93% genome coverage ≥1x for a single human cell at 25x mean sequencing depth. We detected digitized copy-number variations (CNVs) of a single cancer cell. By sequencing three kindred cells, we were able to identify individual single-nucleotide variations (SNVs), with no false positives detected. We directly measured the genome-wide mutation rate of a cancer cell line and found that purine-pyrimidine exchanges occurred unusually frequently among the newly acquired SNVs. The genome of single cells has been sequenced before using a technique known as a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to produce enough copies of the DNA for sequencing. This procedure enables researchers to sequence the genome with about 40-70 percent accuracy, but greater precision is difficult because of amplification bias, in which some parts of the genome tend to be copied more readily than others. Not only does this reduce the extent of the genome that can be sequenced, but it also means segments of DNA that are copied are difficult to detect and may be missed.In a paper published in Science a US research team describe a new way of getting around the amplification bias problem. The team, led by Professor X. Sunney Xie of Harvard University in Massachusetts, has developed a new technique which they have named “Multiple Annealing and Looping-Based Amplification Cycles” (MALBAC), in which the genome from a cell is first isolated and then “primers” consisting of short segments of DNA are added. When the DNA with the added primers is copied, up to 93 percent of the genome can be sequenced because the common segments incorporated into the copies loop back on themselves.The primers are pieces of DNA with a common section of 27 nucleotides and a variable section of eight nucleotides. The shorter section binds to the cell’s DNA and the longer, common section reduces amplification bias by preventing the DNA from being copied too often.The researchers used the new technique to sequence the DNA in three closely related cells, and also the DNA of 99 sperm from a single Asian male (as described in a second paper in the same journal). They were able to identify variations in individual nucleotides and observed no false positives.The improvement in single cell genome sequencing is a big advance, but variations in single nucleotides could still be missed. The copying method can also introduce occasional copying errors.The ability to sequence the genome in a single cell could help in cancer and other research since it would allow comparisons between individual cells. It could also prove useful in applications where only a small sample of DNA is available, such as in forensic science.

Now a new technique has been developed for effectively sequencing the DNA in an individual cell.last_img read more


Atacama Desert people found to have evolved greater tolerance of arsenic

first_imgA large sample of native arsenic. Credit: Aram Dulyan/Public Domain This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Native people living in a part of the Atacama Desert in Chile (in a place known as the Quebrada Camarones, where it is drier than any other non-polar spot on the planet) are descended from settlers that moved into the area approximately 7,000 years ago. Those early settlers faced serious health problems due to very high concentrations of arsenic in the only water available. The researchers with this new effort suggest that many such settlers likely perished before they could produce offspring, leaving those that were more physically suited to dealing with the toxic metalloid to keep the population going. To find out how the modern people there are able to drink water that would seriously harm other people, the researchers collected blood from 150 of the local residents and subjected the samples to genetic testing. In particular, the researchers looked for variants of an enzyme called AS3MT—prior research has shown that people with such variants are better able to tolerate arsenic. The team reports that approximately 68 percent of the people they tested had such a variant. AS3MT breaks arsenic down into two compounds: monomethylarsonic acid and dimethylarsinic acid. Those with the stronger gene variant produce more of the latter.The researchers note that their results show that AS3MT variants are only part of the answer; 32 percent of those tested did not have the variant, which suggests there is some other factor at play. The next step, they suggest will be to sequence the whole chromosomal region around the variant that has been found to see if there are others that might be providing some sort of unknown resistance.

Human adaptation to arsenic in Andean populations of the Atacama Desert, American Journal of Physical Anthropology (2017). DOI: 10.1002/ajpa.23193AbstractObjectivesQuebrada Camarones, in the Atacama Desert, has the highest arsenic levels in the Americas (>1,000 µg/L). However, the Camarones people have subsisted in this adverse environment during the last 7,000 years and have not presented any epidemiological emergencies. Therefore, to solve this conundrum we compared the frequencies of four protective genetic variants of the AS3MT gene associated with efficient arsenic metabolization, between the living populations of Camarones and two other populations historically exposed to lower levels of arsenic.Materials and MethodsThe Chilean selected population samples come from Quebrada Camarones (n = 50) and the Azapa Valley (n = 47) in the north and San Juan de la Costa (n = 45) in southern Chile. The genotyping was conducted using PCR-RFLP. We compared the genotypic and allelic frequencies, and estimated the haplotype frequencies in the AS3MT gene.ResultsWe found higher frequencies of the protective variants in those people from Camarones than in the other two populations. The haplotype estimation showed that the combination of protective variants of CTTA is very frequent in Camarones (68%) and Azapa (48%), but extremely low in San Juan de la Costa (8%). Also, the C variant associated with toxicity risks in the SNP Met287Thr had a lower frequency in Camarones (1%) and is higher in the other populations.DiscussionThe higher frequency of protective variants in both northern Chilean populations indicates a long exposure to naturally arsenic-contaminated water sources. Our data suggest that a high arsenic metabolization capacity has been selected as an adaptive mechanism in these populations in order to survive in an arsenic-laden environment. (Phys.org)—A team of researchers affiliated with several institutions in Chile has found that some people living in a part of the Atacama Desert have evolved over time for survival despite drinking water that contains 100 times the suggested maximum safe limit of arsenic as set by the World Health Organization. In their paper published in the American Journal of Physical Anthropology, the team describes a genetic study they conducted of the people in the area and what they found. © 2017 Phys.orglast_img read more


Emerging Technologies in Prostate Cancer

first_imgFeature | Prostate Cancer | April 10, 2017 | By Jeff Zagoudis Emerging Technologies in Prostate Cancer The next frontier is in detecting and treating recurrent prostate cancer The Status of Prostate Cancer ImagingThe majority of imaging research and advancements related to prostate cancer have centered around diagnosis and detection according to Peter Choyke, M.D., FACR, program director, molecular imaging program, senior investigator, head, imaging section, Center for Cancer Research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Issues of concern here include: •        Risk assessment•        Biopsy guidance•        Staging•        Surveillance•        Focal therapy Technology | Interventional Radiology | August 16, 2019 Profound Medical Receives U.S. FDA 510(k) Clearance for Tulsa-Pro Profound Medical Corp. announced it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to… read more Following radiation, the bone marrow shows nearly complete loss of blood cells in mice (left). Mice treated with the PTP-sigma inhibitor displayed rapid recovery of blood cells (purple, right). Credit: UCLA Broad Stem Cell Research Center/Nature Communications As for metastatic disease, Choyke said advanced imaging work is just beginning in this area. Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) screening has appeared to lower metastatic disease rates (and by extension mortality rates), but currently the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends against it, saying the benefits are outweighed by the potential harms of overdiagnosis and treatment. As a result, more patients are again starting to present with metastatic disease. “This is the area that leads directly to death, so this would have a huge impact,” Choyke said. Imaging research related to detection and treatment of metastatic disease is centered on: •        Imaging sensitivity•        Disease response•        Castration News | Proton Therapy | August 08, 2019 MD Anderson to Expand Proton Therapy Center The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center unveiled plans to expand its Proton Therapy Center during a… read more Pomper noted that PSA cannot provide information related to the location or aggressiveness of cancer, and that conventional imaging has performed poorly for prognosis in castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), further supporting the use of molecular imaging. Fludeoxyglucose (F-18) is the most commonly used PET agent for prostate imaging in the United States. It was predated by carbon-11, but that molecule features a three-minute half-life, making it not clinically translatable, according to Pomper. Conversely, F-18 features a longer half-life, making it easier to transport and mass produce domestically. “It also features a short positron path range, so you get a much crisper image,” Pomper said during his RSNA presentation.  Challenges of PET/MRI. For hospitals looking to implement PET/MR for prostate cancer imaging, Choyke said the No. 1 challenge will be establishing a new workflow. “It is difficult to find technologists that are skilled in both PET and MRI,” he told his audience, “so you need two actively involved staff members.” This means that extensive training will be required for any kind of implementation, taxing critical resources of time and money. Further complicating the financial side, Choyke noted that the pay scale for technologists is often not adaptive to combined modalities. More than training differences, however, Choyke said that the culture of the two technologies is very different. “MRI typically is a modality that needs to be monitored very closely for image quality accounting for motion,” he explained, whereas PET imaging does not often require rescanning. From a safety perspective, MRI technologists are not used to working with radioactivity, while PET technologists may not be aware of the zoned safety approach required for MRI scans. “It is clearly a step forward in technology and the evolution of hybrid imaging,” Choyke said of PET/MR, “but the economic argument will have to be made for it if it’s going to be sustainable.”  The MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center expansion is expected to be completed in 2023. Rendering courtesy of Stantec. Multiparametric MRIMagnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has proven to be one of the more effective imaging modalities for prostate cancer, helping improve localization and guidance of biopsies, especially for anterior cancers. According to Choyke, T1 and T2 stage disease that is confined to the prostate is easily detectable on MRI, while extra-prostatic disease (T3 and T4) are harder to visualize. Because of the disease’s variable nature, researchers and clinicians in recent years have started using multiparametric MRI (mpMRI), combining functional and anatomic imaging via several different sequences to provide a more complete picture. mpMRI exams typically include T2-weighted imaging for anatomy, diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) for cellularity and dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI (DCE-MRI) for vascularity. A number of clinical studies have assessed the effectiveness of mpMRI for prostate cancer, and have determined it is the best noninvasive alternative for tumor detection. One study, published in the Journal of Magnetic Resonance Imaging last July, looked to assess the performance of mpMRI as described in version two of the Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System (PI-RADS). The research team found that mpMRI achieved 91 percent sensitivity in detecting clinically significant index lesions and 63 percent for all lesions across all readers.1 There has also been success in combining mpMRI with ultrasound to improve biopsy sampling. A study from the January 2015 Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) compared mpMRI/ultrasound-guided biopsy with standard biopsy; the image-guided biopsy diagnosed 30 more high-risk cancers than standard biopsy, and also diagnosed 17 percent fewer low-risk cancers, suggesting that targeted biopsies can help reduce overdiagnosis while still catching more developed disease.2  Related Content News | Radiation Therapy | August 15, 2019 First Patient Enrolled in World’s Largest Brain Cancer Clinical Trial Henry Ford Cancer Institute is first-in-the-world to enroll a glioblastoma patient in the GBM AGILE Trial (Adaptive… read more Technology | Radiographic Fluoroscopy (RF) | August 09, 2019 Shimadzu Medical Systems Receives FDA 510(k) for FluoroSpeed X1 RF System Shimadzu Medical Systems USA, a subsidiary of Shimadzu Corp., announced they have received U.S. Food and Drug… read more News | PACS | August 09, 2019 Lake Medical Imaging Selects Infinitt for Multi-site RIS/PACS Infinitt North America will be implementing Infinitt RIS (radiology information system)/PACS (picture archiving and… read more PET/MRIWhile PET and MRI each offer distinct advantages in prostate cancer imaging, many in the industry believe that combining the two can provide even greater benefits. Choyke noted that radiologists and researchers have been looking for the “killer application” for PET/MR since its inception, and prostate imaging has offered the most promising avenue thus far. “MRI is an important part of prostate cancer management, but numerous new PET agents provide high sensitivity and specificity for prostate imaging, so it makes sense to combine the two,” he told the RSNA audience.  The real question, he said, is whether enough patients need simultaneous PET/MR scans to justify the $5-7 million price tag of these machines. Choyke further supported the utility of PET/MR for prostate cancer imaging by comparing it to PET/CT (computed tomography). One study published the previous January in the Journal of Nuclear Medicine found the two combination modalities performed equally well in lesion detection and image quality. The researchers did find, however, that PET/MRI was more accurate for anatomic lesion allocation within the prostate, which could have implications for biopsy planning.4One of the advantages of PET/MRI, Choyke said, is that with the full-body scanning capabilities of today’s MRI machines, it is possible to overlay PET images on top of the MRI scans for improved visualization. The combined modality has also demonstrated improved anatomic localization of recurrent lesions. Perhaps most importantly, however, Choyke said that PET/MRI has allowed a more sophisticated PSMA scan, which he said is highly accurate for early metastatic disease. “We’ve been able to look at both primary tumors and recurrent cancers,” he told the RSNA audience. There is limited data beyond this for PET/MR with metastatic disease, but more studies are ongoing and on the horizon.   center_img References1.     Greer, M.D., et al. “Accuracy and Agreement of PIRADSv2 for Prostate Cancer mpMRI: A Multireader Study,” Journal of Magnetic Resonance Imaging.

As beneficial as multiparametric MRI has proven for visualizing prostate cancer, it does still have its challenges, according to Baris Turkbey, M.D., associate research physician, Molecular Imaging Program at National Cancer Institute’s Center for Cancer Research. For one, the technique does not entirely eliminate the variation seen in prostate cancer — Turkbey shared the experience of one patient who had three mpMRI scans in a three-month period at three different hospitals and came away with three different results.Turkbey also noted that unlike other MRI exams, the type of coil that is needed can vary for prostate exams. “Some say a phased array coil is good and some say an endorectal coil is good,” he noted. If you do use a coil, you must decide what to use inside the coil, where again, Turkbey noted there has been great variation. Apart from cost — Turkbey told his RSNA audience that mpMRI is still a fairly expensive procedure — perhaps the most significant obstacle is that its effectiveness is limited in local staging. A study from the August 2016 European Urology journal found that mpMRI achieved only 57 percent sensitivity (but 91 percent specificity) with T3 disease.3 Turkbey said that overall, mpMRI still misses approximately 10 percent of clinically significant prostate cancers.  News | Radiation Therapy | August 16, 2019 Drug Accelerates Blood System’s Recovery After Radiation, Chemotherapy A drug developed by UCLA physician-scientists and chemists speeds up the regeneration of mouse and human blood stem… read more Catalyst PT image courtesy of C-RAD Hyperpolarized C-13 MR Molecular Imaging of Prostate Cancer. Some work is also being done to increase the sensitivity of MRI through hyperpolarization of pyruvate acid. When injected into the body, it is normally converted to carbon dioxide or alanine — but in the presence of aggressive cancer it converts into lactate, according to Daniel Vigneron, Ph.D., professor and director of the Hyperpolarized MRI Technology Resource Center at the University of California-San Francisco. A phase 1 safety and feasibility clinical trial of 31 patients found that tracing these enzymatic activity changes allowed a functional look at prostate cancer metabolism.  The next frontier, where researchers are beginning to make strides, Choyke said, is in detecting and treating recurrent prostate cancer. Issues being studied in this field include: •        Locating recurring cancer•        Biopsy guidance•        Therapy direction News | Brachytherapy Systems | August 14, 2019 Efficacy of Isoray’s Cesium Blu Showcased in Recent Studies August 14, 2019 — Isoray announced a trio of studies recently reported at scientific meetings and published in medica read more CAD and mpMRI. One solution that may help improve the capabilities of mpMRI is computer-aided detection (CAD), which Turkbey briefly discussed at RSNA. According to one study he cited, adding CAD to the initial scan improved sensitivity 8.4 percent for index lesions for all readers. The research team also saw a 16 percent reduction in further unnecessary biopsies as a result.  Multiparametric MRI (MpMRI) has proved helpful in enhancing biopsy sampling for prostate cancer when combined with ultrasound. While prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers among American men — the third leading cause of cancer deaths in that group according to American Cancer Society statistics — it is a complex condition that encompasses a broad range of disease and numerous stages. As a result, imaging it for detection and management purposes has traditionally been difficult. New technologies have emerged in the last several years, however, that appear promising for improvements in these areas. Several of these technologies were highlighted during an educational session at the 2016 annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in November in Chicago. PET Imaging of Prostate CancerNuclear imaging, in particular positron emission tomography (PET), has offered another promising avenue, with several classes of imaging agents developed for prostate cancer applications. The majority of PET agents track uptake of prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA), a protein that tends to be associated with aggressive prostate cancers and also acts as a marker of androgen signaling. Monitoring PSMA uptake can serve several purposes in prostate cancer detection and treatment, according to Martin Pomper, M.D., Ph.D., Henry N. Wagner Jr., M.D., Professor of Radiology at Johns Hopkins University. Some ways that it has been used include: •        Selecting candidates for active surveillance;•        Pre-surgical staging in patients at risk of occult metastatic disease;•        Direct therapy when patients experience PSA recurrence after failing local therapy; and•        General therapeutic monitoring.  News | Patient Positioning Radiation Therapy | August 15, 2019 Mevion and C-RAD Release Integration for Improved Proton Therapy Treatment Quality Mevion Medical Systems and C-RAD announced the integration between the C-RAD Catalyst PT and the Mevion S250i proton… read more News | Medical 3-D Printing | August 08, 2019 RSNA and ACR to Collaborate on Landmark Medical 3D Printing Registry The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) and the American College of Radiology (ACR) will launch a new medical… read more Technology | Cybersecurity | August 07, 2019 ScImage Introduces PICOM ModalityGuard for Cybersecurity ScImage Inc. is bridging the gap between security and functionality with the introduction of the PICOM ModalityGuard…. read morelast_img read more

IATA to introduce central database baggage rules

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: J.L Airlines across the globe will soon have a central database for interline baggage rules, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) announced last week.IATA said it would introduce Automated Carrier Baggage Rules (ACBR) as part of its Simplifying the Business program.The central database will be hosted by the Airline Tariff Publishing Company (ATPCO) and IATA will push carriers to submit their baggage rules to ATPCO by September this year for implementation in early 2011.It will enable airlines, travel agents and passengers to know what baggage rules will apply for any given itinerary at the time of booking.”Baggage rules are becoming increasingly complex and confusing. We must improve transparency so that travellers know what to expect,” said IATA Director General Giovanni Bisignani.”Airlines have a variety of different rules and fees depending on the number of bags checked, class of travel, frequent flyer status and routings.”ACBR will put all of that information in one place so passengers can have a complete understanding of baggage fees before they buy their tickets—even for complicated journeys.” <a href=”http://www.etbtravelnews.global/click/2a59b/” target=”_blank”><img src=”http://adsvr.travelads.biz/www/delivery/avw.php?zoneid=10&amp;cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE&amp;n=a5c63036″ border=”0″ alt=””></a>last_img read more
