German researchers have recently reported that patients with ankylosing spondylitis, detected by MRI is predictive of major response to anti-TNF therapy with etanercept or infliximab

German researchers have recently reported that patients with ankylosing spondylitis, detected by MRI is predictive of major response to anti-TNF therapy with etanercept or infliximab



Dr. Martin Rudwaleit of Deutsches Rheumaforschungszentrum hospital in Berlin and his colleagues examined Magnetic Resonant Images (MRI) from various patients with active disease. Out of these patients 46 had inflammatory lesions in spine, around 40 in the sacroiliac joints and twenty six had inflammation… Continue

NEJM: Meniscus is a very common observation, among middle aged and elderly persons

Researchers have reported in the September issue of “New England Journal of Medicine” that damage to meniscus is a very common observation, among middle aged and elderly persons, who come for knee MRI’s and this stands true irrespective of their knee symptoms.



This research was primarily done to determine the existence of meniscal damage and the association of the same with knee pain and stiffness.



Dr. Martin Englund of the Boston University School of Medicine… Continue

CT image summation boosts accuracy of RF ablation targeting

Merging multiple CT images (summation of CT scans) increases the accuracy of probe repositioning during radiofrequency ablation treatments of various lesions, according to a recent study performed at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.

"During radiofrequency ablation, the probe often needs to be repositioned in order to effectively treat an entire lesion," said author Dr. John M. Gemery, an assistant professor of…

A new patient-friendly MRI is unveiled...

St. John’s Regional Medical Center recently unveiled a new MRI machine which is built to counteract almost all the common complaints with MRI testing.



The new equipment is from Toshiba in the market since eight months ago. The large opening or “bore” is quieter than all the previous machines, and also provides more detailed imaging as it does not use the intravenous dye to which many people are allergic.



Lewis Ware, director-medical of radiology for St. John’s Medical… Continue
