Bug Busters: Hopkins to Host Symposium On Infection Imaging

Release Date: August 23, 2011

Doctors can peer inside the human body to look for tumors, detect a blockage in an artery or see a crack in a bone, but common afflictions like bacterial and viral infections are far more difficult to track, and even the most sophisticated imaging devices can only offer a less-than-definitive answer.“Although CT scans and MRIs can spot disease, they can’t always reliably tell a physician if that suspicious shade they see on the screen is a tumor or a hotbed of bacteria,” says imaging innovator and infectious disease specialist Sanjay Jain, M.D., of Johns Hopkins Children’s Center.
