Multi-layered security against medical IoT cyberattacks

As practitioners increasingly rely on remote patient monitoring, telemedicine, and other IoMT-based remote care modalities, the chronic safety issue of connected medical devices is now a progressive systemic disease during the pandemic. Threats within hospitals also abound, including those associated with traditional wired Ethernet medical systems, from anesthesia machines and MRIs to ventilators and infusion […]

MRI scan accident analysis

Recently, auntminnie Europe reported the latest investigation and analysis data on MRI scanning accidents. The survey covered more than 18000 MRI scans lasting for one year. The analysis results showed that hospitalized patients were more prone to MRI accidents, which was largely due to clinical problems during transportation and the lack of identification and data […]

MRI can quantify liver response in patients with nonalcoholic steatohepatitis

Researchers at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine found that a non-invasive form of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for measuring liver fat density in patients with nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) corresponds to a histological response. The findings, published in the journal progress in gastroenterology treatment, indicate that the imaging technology can be used […]

Medical research found the negative effects of VA overuse

According to a study by medical school and Virginia researchers, 30 to 50 percent of lumbar MRI examinations performed by the Department of Veterans Affairs are inappropriate. The study, published online February 2 in the American Journal of management medicine, looked at all lumbar MRI requirements for the entire VA system in fy2012. “It’s widely […]

MRI electronic scan can help doctors identify the causes of memory loss

A UCLA led study found that using MRI scans can distinguish between memory loss and brain injury caused by Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers at UCLA and colleagues at Washington University in St. Louis say the finding is important because it can help prevent misdiagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease, which is devastating to patients and their families. As […]
