The purpose of this study was to explore the value of FDG PET combined with high-resolution CT (HRCT) in predicting the pathologic subtypes and growth patterns of early lung adenocarcinoma. Read more.
In this single-center observational cohort study of 68 patients and 27 control participants, early ischemia was common in patients, but hyperemia coexisted in different brain regions. Cerebral blood volume was consistently increased, despite low cerebral blood flow. Read more.
Chronic noise exposure associates with increased cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk; however, the role of confounders and the underlying mechanism remain incompletely defined. The amygdala, a limbic centre involved in stress perception, participates in the response to noise. Higher amygdalar metabolic activity (AmygA) associates with increased CVD risk through a mechanism involving heightened arterial inflammation (ArtI). Accordingly, in this retrospective study, we tested whether greater noise exposure associates with higher: (i) AmygA, (ii) ArtI, and (iii) risk for major adverse cardiovascular disease events (MACE).

Researchers at Kanazawa University report a promising combination of radioisotope-carrying molecules for use in radiotheranostics—a diagnosis and treatment approach based on the combination of medical imaging and internal radiation therapy with radioactive elements. Read more.
Understanding this process could lead to innovative and improved therapies
Prostate cancer often becomes lethal as it spreads to the bones, and the process behind this deadly feature could potentially be turned against it as a target for bone-targeting radiation and potential new therapies. Read more.
