Week in review: PET/MRI for pediatric cancer survivors | MRI reveals dementia risk | UltraCon coverage

Pediatric cancer patients who receive high-dose methotrexate (HDMTX) treatment may develop a brain injury due to damaging inflammation resulting from activation of microglia cells.

In a recent pilot study, a research team used PET/MRI to diagnose HDMTX-induced injury in pediatric cancer survivors and correlate these results with cognitive impairment. Using quantitative measures, they were able to tie methotrexate administration to the degree and location of specific brain injuries. Get all of the details in our most highly viewed story of the week.

Hearing loss has long been known as a risk factor for dementia. But MRI has revealed that the dementia risk from hearing loss is distinct from those that tend to be found with conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease. Click here to learn more.

Coverage of the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine's UltraCon conference in Austin, TX, also attracted considerable attention from AuntMinnie.com members this week. Our most popular article from UltraCon featured a video interview with industry veteran Omar Ishrak, PhD, on the future of ultrasound technology.

You can also listen to a discussion on ultrasound’s role in imaging dense breasts and learn how harmonic motion imaging can track breast tumor response to chemotherapy. Of interest to sonographers, work-related musculoskeletal disorders have been associated with burnout.
