Adding two non-invasive imaging tests to traditional cardiovascular disease risk factor assessment more precisely predicts a healthy patient’s future risk of heart attack, stroke, or premature death, according to a new study. The study was led by...

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced its latest efforts in supporting the Bonn Call for Action, an international list of priorities for radiation protection in medicine for the next decade.

A new study published online in the journal Radiology found a substantial gap between patient expectations and current practices for providing information about medical imaging tests that use radiation. Researchers said the findings highl...

Scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory  have uncovered new clues about the risk of cancer from low-dose radiation. In this research, low-dose is defined as equivalent to 100 millisieverts or roug...
