Could an MRI-Based Machine Learning Model Facilitate Enhanced Detection of Alzheimer's Disease?

June 22, 2022

New research suggests that an emerging predictive biomarker, derived from a combination of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) brain scans and a machine learning algorithm, has significantly greater accuracy than previously established measurements for diagnosing Alzheimer’s disease.

Is Whole Body Imaging Warranted for Thrombocytopenia Caused by a COVID-19 Vaccine?

June 14, 2022

In what may be the largest study to date to examine the use of whole-body imaging to assess multisystem thrombosis in patients with COVID-19 vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia, researchers found multiple sites of thrombosis in 83 percent of patients who had additional CT, MRI and/or ultrasound imaging beyond the area of their primary complaint.
