Silent Health risks are no longer a secret

A new study led by some researchers at a university in UK are quite close to conclude that silent health risks can be found if the blood pressure is measured in both the arms. According to them, if the pressure difference between the two arms is more than 10 mm of hg or 15 mm of Hg then the health risks can be calculated and patients can be put for further diagnosis of vascular diseases like- peripheral vascular disease (narrowing and hardening of artery system), cerebrovascular (affecting blood supply to brain), cardiovascular (disease arising from arterial disfunctioning affecting the heart).

PET/CT Scans Valuable for Follow-ups in Cancer patients

A study presented at the Multidisciplinary Head, Neck Cancer Symposium, sponsored by AHNS, ASCO, ASTRO and SNM says that the use of positron emission (PET/CT) tomography /computed tomography scans in head and neck in cancer patient’s follow-up can detect local recurrences before they become clinically apparent. These PET/CT scans might also improve the outcome of the subsequent salvage therapy. Whenever recurrence is suspected in a patient, most head and neck cancer follow-up studies use (FDG-PET) Fluorodeoxyglucose-PET scans and PET scan is a relatively new test. The use of this as a routine follow up for head and neck cancer patients is highly controversial.
