Does Tc-99m SPECT damage DNA?
In a pilot study, researchers studied the effect of ionizing radiation on patients who underwent MPI exams, also known as nuclear stress tests. They used a comet assay, a standard lab test for detecting DNA damage in cells, to analyze patient blood samples before and after they underwent imaging, with results suggesting a small yet likely irrelevant amount of damage.

3D microscope may replace biopsies with real-time imaging
The system, called MediSCAPE (Swept Confocally Aligned Planar Excitation microscopy), is capable of capturing images of tissue structures that can guide surgeons to navigate tumors and their boundaries without needing to remove tissues and wait for pathology results. If proven in the field, the technology could eventually replace conventional biopsies and histology with real-time imaging within the living body.

Insightec to launch new trials of Exablate Neuro
One study will evaluate the use of Exablate Neuro to treat patients with primary non-small cell lung cancer that has metastasized to the brain in conjunction with Keytruda, a humanized antibody immunotherapy. Exablate Neuro could be used to open up the blood-brain barrier to make immunotherapy agents like Keytruda more effective.

AI of chest x-rays finds TB when lab tests fall short
As part of the End TB strategy, the World Health Organization (WHO) has recommended the use of chest x-ray as a screening and triage tool where bacteriological diagnostic tests are unclear. Inconclusive TB tests are common in children due to their lower bacteria counts, according to the WHO. The strategy also states that lateral chest x-ray views may be needed in cases of a challenging bacteriological confirmation in younger children.
