Speeding up CT scans with cellphone technology, ultrasound warning signal for breast cancer

the stapes, is about the length of the date on a U.S. dime. In the comparison, the researchers find details (a facial nerve canal) that are clear in the MiniCAT scan and obscured in the traditional CT. To be able to resolve such important structures may have an important impact on clinical diagnosis and treatment of temporal bone diseases. (Thursday, July 26, 2007, 11:36 AM, Paper TH-C-AUD-9.)


ADDITIONAL SESSIONS OF INTEREST

This year's President's Symposium, chaired by AAPM President Mary Martel (UT MD Anderson Cancer Center), explores the concept of using medical images as biomarkers for monitoring patient response to drug and radiation therapy (http://www.aapm.org/meetings/07AM/PRAbs.asp?mid=29&aid=8005). At the meeting's professional symposia, speakers will tackle topics such as developing medical physics technical standards, the challenges of introducing new technology into the clinic, and special issues for scientists in signing legal statements related to medical treatment. The educational symposium contains sessions on interacting with the news media, using PET and SPECT imaging in optimizing treatment plans, and efforts to increase the medical physics education of diagnostic radiology residents.
