production of skin cells. Before treatment, the antigen, PCNA, was present in all layers of the skin, Dr. Hsu says. Typically, PCNA is only found in the basal layer, the innermost layer where skin cells continually divide and new cells push the old...
Speeding up CT scans with cellphone technology, ultrasound warning signal for breast cancer

increase by hundreds of times, leading to better images, faster imaging procedures, and potentially lower x-ray exposures. A University of North Carolina team has pioneered a method that collects images from many sources at once, instead of the curr...
