CT angiography steps up role in interventional planning
MR agent targets PE-CAM-1 molecule to see transitory myocardial infarction
CONTEXT: In acute myocardial infarction (AMI), the culprit thrombus sometimes dissolves before the patient arrives in the emergency room, leaving the cardiologist with few clues as to the source of the chest pain.
Labeling studies follow human stem cell therapies
Molecular imaging is playing a central role in shaping the future of cell-based therapies. Even as human studies near approval by the FDA, critical questions remain to be answered in preclinical work. Researchers rely on MI to produce those answers.

Comfort lasts months, with option for further treatments as needed
Perhaps even more than death itself, many cancer patients fear spending their final months in excruciating pain. New research points to radio-frequency ablation as a source of fast and lasting relief that works when other methods of pain control fail.
