Increased use of medical imaging in North America

According to a study recently published in Journal of American Medical Association and cited by the web based radiology news channel AuntMinnie, use of MRI continue to rise in North America.

The study implies medical imaging is generally considered beneficial by treating physicians in USA and Canada. It is also clear there is awareness of benefits of MRI (e.g. no radiation exposure) but need for more precision in imaging diagnosis.

Spago Nanomedical´s project SpagoPix holds potential to increase specificity in diagnosis of solid tumors, such as breast cancer.
