Precision-Targeted Low-Dose Treatment for Large Clots in the Lungs

Interventional Radiology and Cardiology are using a new transcatheter treatment for patients with large emboli: ultrasound-enhanced lysis that drives thrombolytic agents directly into the clot. The approach is rapidly emerging as a more efficient and safer alternative to traditional catheter-based treatment or high-dose intravenous clot-busting therapy for massive emboli.

MRI Based On A Sugar Molecule Can Tell Cancerous From Noncancerous Cells

Imaging tests like mammograms or CT scans can detect tumors, but figuring out whether a growth is or isn’t cancer usually requires a biopsy to study cells directly. Now results of a Johns Hopkins study suggest that MRI could one day make biopsies more effective or even replace them altogether by noninvasively detecting telltale sugar molecules shed by the outer membranes of cancerous cells.

New Johns Hopkins University Center Brings Imaging Therapies To Pets

Recent years have seen breakneck innovation in the field of radiology, from MRI-guided biopsies, to image-guided stenting, to ways to lower radiation dosage while preserving image quality. Now, a dedicated center at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine is making those innovations available to our four-legged — and even winged — friends.

A Novel Approach to Bladder Exstrophy Closure Yields Insights

A team of pediatric radiologists, urologists and orthopedic surgeons has developed a new way to identify important anatomic features in preparation for bladder exstrophy repair. A pre-operative MRI of the pelvis is combined with computer technology to create a 3-D image of the anatomy, allowing for better coordination and precision during surgery.
