[04/05/2015] Whether it is a mammogram, colonoscopy or a skin cancer screening – after a certain age, we are subject to various early cancer detection screenings. Yet many of us don’t know that these screening tests are also associated with risks. This is something what Dr. Sylvia Sänger from the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf discovered in a study.Early cancer detection: "Physicians and patients need a good database" - Read more

Spinal surgery: Right on target

To avoid this, Johns Hopkins researchers have developed a software program that works seamlessly with currently available procedures to assist a surgeon's determination of which vertebra is which.Spinal surgery: Right on target - Read more

Used to treat a variety of medical conditions, including autoimmune diseases and allergies, glucocorticoids are known to cause rapid deterioration in bone strength. Scientists explore a new parameter of bone quality that measures strength instead of density.Good bone, bad bone - Read more
