...o received four injections of BHT-3009. Magnetic resonance
imaging (MRI) and other safety evaluations were performed at the beginning of the study, and again after five, nine, 13, 26, 38 and 50 weeks. BHT-3009 was safe and well tolerated, provided favorable trends on brain MRI and produced beneficial antigen...

...riences chest pain or has a heart attack. Magnetic resonance
imaging (MRI) was used to look for early signs of atherosclerosis in the walls of the aorta. Researchers then examined the relationship between body shape and early signs of arterial disease. They found that the likelihood of calcium being found in...
Waist-to-hip ratio may better predict cardiovascular risk than body mass index
...led clinical exam complete with abdominal magnetic resonance
imaging and coronary artery calcium scans. Calcium was more likely to be found in the arteries of patients with the greatest waist-to-hip ratio, the researchers discovered. People with the largest waist-to-hip ratio had a twofold increase in the inc...
MRI finds breast cancer before it becomes dangerous
...iagnosis of breast cancer. It states that magnetic resonance
imaging (MRI) is substantially more accurate than mammography in diagnosing very early stages of breast cancer . Up to now MRI was thought to be hardly suited for the detection of such 'ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) . Researchers at the University ...
Using MRI for diagnosis could help prevent breast cancer progression
Using magnetic resonance
imaging (MRI) to diagnose breast cancer in its intraductal stage could help prevent the development of invasive cancer, conclude authors of an Article in this weeks edition of The Lancet. And an accompanying Comment says that the findings show that ...
