Firefighters in Surrey BC help develop software to combat overdose crisis

first_imgSURREY, B.C. – Firefighters in Surrey, B.C., have turned to technology in the battle against opioid overdoses.The fire department has partnered with Vancouver-based software developer GINQO to create a program that mines data from dispatch calls in real-time to identify clusters of overdoses.Those clusters can be a sign that a batch of tainted drugs is circulating on the streets and the program can alert first responders to a potentially escalating situation.The software kicks in automatically when data from emergency calls corresponds with specific criteria, such as more than three overdoses within one square kilometre in a four-hour period.The Surrey Fire Service started using the program late last June and has since received 10 alerts about overdose clusters.Fire Chief Len Garis says when the department gets an alert, they can make sure they have the resources available to respond properly.“We were basically sitting and waiting for things to happen and now we can see the surges coming and we can adapt to it,” he said.The department was inspired to take action after 17 overdoses over a 72-hour period in December 2016, Garis said. The overdoses were later linked to what appeared to be tainted batches of crack cocaine and pure cocaine, he said.The firefighters responded to an average of 7.5 overdose calls per day in Surrey last year.“There’s a huge strain on our first responders because we’ve been running pillar to post trying to address this,” Garis said.The department has also formed a partnership with Statistics Canada aimed at trying to determine a typology on individuals who are overdosing.Officials and software developers are working to make the alert program predictive so it can say when and where overdoses may occur.That will help first responders become proactive instead of reactive, allowing them to prevent overdoses, Garis said.“It’s giving us some hope that we’re trying to get in front of this thing,” he said.The Surrey Fire Service said government and public health officials from across North America began requesting information and presentations about the alert program within months of its development.The latest figures from the British Columbia coroner’s service show there were 1,208 illicit drug overdose deaths across the province between January and October last year.The data shows the powerful opioid fentanyl was detected in about 83 per cent of the deaths.last_img read more

In the news today Jan 17

first_imgFive stories in the news for Thursday, Jan. 17———U.S. DENOUNCES DEATH PENALTY AGAINST CANADIAN The U.S. has denounced a death sentence imposed on a Canadian man in China as “politically motivated,” adding heft to Ottawa’s effort to intensify international pressure on Beijing to spare his life and to release two other detained Canadians. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland conferred Tuesday and “expressed their concerns about the arbitrary detentions and politically motivated sentencing of Canadian nationals,” U.S. deputy spokesman Robert Palladino said in a statement Wednesday. Earlier this week, a Chinese court applied the death penalty to Robert Lloyd Schellenberg, who was originally sentenced in 2016 to a 15-year term for drug smuggling. The court delivered the new sentence after reconsidering his case.———JUDGE TO INSTRUCT JURY IN ONTARIO TERROR CASEAn Ontario judge is expected to give his final instructions today to jurors weighing the case of a Toronto-area woman facing terror charges in an attack at a Canadian Tire store.  Rehab Dughmosh was arrested in July 2017 on allegations she tried to attack employees with a golf club and a butcher knife at a location at a mall in east Toronto. She initially faced a total of 21 charges, but court documents filed this week show she now faces four. They include two counts of assault with a weapon and one of carrying a weapon — all in the name of ISIS. Dughmosh is also charged with leaving Canada for the purpose of committing a criminal offence in connection with an attempted trip to Syria in April 2016.———MORNEAU OPTIMISTIC ABOUT CANADIAN ECONOMY Finance Minister Bill Morneau painted a rosy picture of Canada’s economic future Wednesday, despite diplomatic and political upheavals around the world that could disrupt global trade and impede growth just as this country prepares to head to the polls in October. Morneau’s upbeat assessment came as he arrived for the start of a three-day cabinet retreat — the first meeting of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s cabinet since he conducted a small shuffle earlier this week. The retreat is taking place against a backdrop of chaos engulfing the British government as it tries to extricate the United Kingdom from the European Union and escalating diplomatic tensions between Canada and China.———ONTARIO SET TO ANNOUNCE TUITION CUTS TODAYThe Ontario government is set to announce a 10 per cent cut to tuition fees in the province, but critics and others worry the announcement will be paired with cuts to student grants. Documents indicate that Merrilee Fullerton, the Progressive Conservative government’s minister of training, colleges and universities, will announce the mandated drop in tuition for colleges and universities today. The Canadian Federation of Students wrote on Twitter that it was concerned about the government’s intentions, and whether the move would truly make education more affordable in Ontario.———FOUR TRUDEAUS, A CANOE AND A KENTUCKY BILLBOARDYou might think the last thing you’d stumble onto on a rural road in central Kentucky is Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. But there about two hours south of Louisville is a giant billboard advertising the Mammoth Cave Canoe and Kayak operation with a photo of a smiling family of four in a canoe. It clearly shows the Canadian prime minister, his wife, Sophie Gregoire Trudeau, and their two oldest children, Xavier and Ella-Grace. A call to Mammoth Cave Canoe and Kayak went unreturned Wednesday, but a man who owns a cabin rental operation across the street from the billboard confirmed its existence. He said he hadn’t looked at it that closely before and was surprised to learn it featured Trudeau.———ALSO IN THE NEWS:— First Nations leaders from northwestern Ontario will hold a press conference to ask the Government of Ontario to prevent unnecessary delays to an important electricity transmission project.— Renee Allison Webber is scheduled to be sentenced today in Halifax on pimping-related charges, including trafficking a person under the age of 18.— Toronto Mayor John Tory will be making a transit announcement today.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

UN And Gates Foundation Present Vision To Eradicate Malaria By 2040

first_imgA new report released by the United Nations and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation presents a vision to eradicate malaria by 2040 that involves new strategies, tools and financing and urges world leaders to expand their commitments to fight a disease that still kills about one child every minute.The report – From Aspiration to Action: What Will It Take to End Malaria? – urges major donors and malaria-affected countries to expand their commitment to the fight against the disease, noting that eradication could save 11 million lives and unlock $2 trillion in economic benefits.“Over the past 15 years, we have seen tremendous progress in reducing the burden of malaria globally – a direct result of our collective action – and we now stand in the unique position of putting an end to this disease forever,” said Ray Chambers, the Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for Financing the Health Millennium Development Goals and for Malaria.“The next five years are vital for setting in motion an ambitious-yet-achievable plan to eradicate malaria by 2040. We must double down on our commitment and move with deliberate haste to bring in new investments, develop new tools, and implement new regional strategies to see our unified goal of a malaria-free world become a reality.”According to a news release on the report, global investment in malaria has jumped in recent years by 2,000 per cent annually – from just $130 million in 2000 to $2.7 billion in 2013 – fundamentally transforming the fight against the disease.Malaria deaths have fallen dramatically – saving an estimated 6.2 million lives and averting 663 million cases of the disease since 2000 – and more than half of the world’s nations are now malaria free. These gains have accounted for 20 per cent of the total progress that the world has made in reducing maternal and child mortality under the Millennium Development Goals, and they have helped convince Asian and African leaders to commit to malaria elimination by 2040.The challenge, according to Mr. Chambers and Bill Gates, is that one billion people remain infected with the malaria parasite, and half of the world’s children remain vulnerable to death and disability caused by the disease. Malaria still kills about one child every minute.They argue that eradication is ultimately the only feasible solution to this challenge, and assert that the alternative to eradication – controlling the disease forever without eliminating it – is biologically and politically untenable.The report envisions a new approach to eradication that will draw important lessons from past eradication efforts and apply innovative strategies, tools and financing.“Eradication is the only sustainable solution to malaria,” said Mr. Gates. “The alternative would be endless investment in the development of new drugs and insecticides just to stay one step ahead of resistance. The world can’t afford that approach.”last_img read more

Wirtgen launches two new compact surface miners for both hard soft rock

first_imgWith the introduction of the 220 SM/220 SMi surface miner, Wirtgen says it is unveiling a new machine designed especially for use in small and medium-sized mining operations as well as for routing work and infrastructure projects; while the new 220 SM 3.8/220 SMi 3.8 surface miner is designed specifically for soft-rock mining. Both machines feature the LEVEL PRO PLUS leveling system which has a proven track record in road construction and mining and is intuitive and easy to operate. A flat or inclined formation level can be created with absolute precision thanks to side plate scanning and the cross-slope sensor. The machine is also ready to be equipped with GPS or laser control.The 220 SM 3.8/220 SMi 3.8 selectively mines raw materials up to a cutting depth of 350 mm and a uniaxial compressive strength of 35 MPa. Thanks to its 3.8 m wide cutting drum designed specifically for soft-rock, this compact surface miner “achieves maximum productivity at low operating costs and is perfect for use in small to large mining operations.”With a cutting width of 2.2 m and a cutting depth of up to 300 mm, the 220 SM/220 SMi can extract raw materials up to a uniaxial compressive strength of 50 MPa. The extracted material is deposited behind the machine in a windrow and then loaded onto trucks with wheel loaders. Selective extraction makes it possible to mine raw materials with a high level of purity. The use of surface miners also reduces the amount of equipment, maintenance, and time required compared to drilling and blasting or rip-and-stack mining. In addition, refraining from drilling and blasting makes it possible to efficiently mine materials close to industrial sites and other infrastructure like pipelines or high-voltage power lines, which ultimately results in the optimized exploitation of the deposit. Thanks to its compact dimensions and smooth, hydraulic, all-track steering, the smallest Wirtgen surface miner has a tight turning radius, which is particularly beneficial in small mining fields.The heart of the 220 SM/220 SMi is the optimised cutting drum unit. Specially designed for challenging windrow applications, the cutting drum turns the power delivered by the engine into maximum cutting power, and as a result, increased productivity. In this process, the high, narrow sides of the holder base ensure that material flows smoothly and energy consumption is kept to a minimum. This results in reduced wear and tear on the housing, holders, point-attack cutting tools, and scraper blade – even when mining hard, abrasive material. All of the 220 SM/220 SMi’s components are designed for extremely demanding open-cast mining applications. This also applies to the massive track units with strong dual-bar base plates for excellent advance, even in difficult conditions.The safety of operating and maintenance personnel is the highest priority in open-cast mining. In the 220 SM/220 SMi ROPS/FOPS operator’s cabin, the operator is protected from external hazards. The cutting drum is easily and safely accessible from the rear through the scraper blade, which opens hydraulically. Pick changes are only carried out when the engine is off. Plenty of space to move, a hydraulic pick ejector, and a milling drum rotation device further simplify this process. Unintentionally switching on the miner can be prevented mechanically by locking the battery and starter isolator, which allows maintenance work to be carried out safely when the machine is shut down. The rear view camera offers excellent visibility for fast, safe maneuvering. When reversing, Reverse Assist offers the operator added support.The 220 SM 3.8/220 SMi 3.8 also meets occupational safety requirements in surface mining thanks to the standard-equipped ROPS/FOPS operator’s cabin. The cabin features additional soundproofing and vibration isolation, allowing the operator to work for several hours without the risk of fatigue. The ergonomically designed and clearly arranged controls are integrated into the armrests of the driver’s seat, and all of the machine’s key functions are logically incorporated into the multifunctional joysticks. This means that the operator can operate the machine intuitively in just a few steps and fully concentrate on high-precision mining. The state-of-the-art, fully air-conditioned, large-capacity cabin also features generously sized windows, giving the operator a direct view of the cutting edge and with it, the results of their work.last_img read more

Anonymous IRC servers hacked by a splinter group

first_imgWhile Sony is busy pointing the finger at the hacker group Anonymous for the on-going PSN and SOE hacks, Anonymous has problems of its own. This weekend AnonOps, an IRC network where some of the members congregate and plan operations, found itself under a denial-of-service attack. That attack finally ended with a number of its IRC servers being taken over.The culprit: one of their own, a former IRC Operator (IRCop) named “Ryan.” Depending on who you believe, Ryan was power-hungry and wanted control over AnonOps for himself, or he was tired of the autocracy of the few Anonymous members who made up the group’s loose leadership structure.AdChoices广告The story is far from clear, and may never be, but the fact of the matter is that a good number of the IRC servers used by AnonOps were seized in the attack, and one of the most popular channels was all but shut down. Ryan also owns a number of AnonOps and Anonymous-related domain names, as well.This schism in leadership at AnonOps is due to two big issues: one of power, and the other of authority. Some believe that Ryan favored a more “prove your mettle” approach to internet activism, where people had to prove they were worthwhile and actually had a cause worth attacking for before they could leverage tools like the infamous Low Orbit Ion Cannon (LOIC) denial-of-service tool. LOIC is the utility used to control botnets and give them targets to attack. At AnonOps, virtually anyone could come in, tell the LOIC who to target next, and just sit back and wait for the attack.The second issue was leadership: a number of Anonymous members argued that the owners of the AnonOps IRC servers and their tools were starting to get a little power-mad as their names were circulated around the Internet. Some members accused the small group of making all of the decisions about who Anonymous would attack, when, and what operations they would engage in without involving the rest of the group in them.Whether or not they had the right to act as leadership is up for debate. Most of the people in the tiny group of IRC moderators at AnonOps were the people responsible for paying to keep the domains registered and the servers up.What this means for the group is unclear, and it’s very likely that the amorphous and fluid nature of a group like Anonymous means that any lack of specific leadership will ultimately go unnoticed by the larger collective. At the same time, unless something changes, AnonOps will likely shutter and the group of IRC operators that used it will be forced to gather somewhere else to plan their activities.via Ars Technicalast_img read more

Google shows off apps for Glass

first_imgWe’ve all seen the Glass demonstration videos from Google, but the app driven ecosystem we live in today demands that there be a little more than Google juice flowing through the headset. During a recent SXSW presentation, Google took to the stage to show off early app partners for the launch of Glass.The core concepts surrounding Glass focus on being able to deliver short bursts of information as the core content system. Similar to how notifications are delivered in Android, Glass can only display small blocks of text or icons in the tiny projector screen. This design also ensures that there’s never enough information on the screen to take your attention off of things, like the road in front of you. Google has made it clear in the past that the bulk of Glass apps would be based on RESTful services, so almost everything you’ll be doing with those apps will require a data connection. Google’s presentation gives a deeper look at what you can expect from the experience in general.Photos and video are an integral part of Google Glass. Using your voice or just touching the side of the headset, you an capture the world around you from the perspective of your eye. Once the photo is taken, you can share it through services like Skitch or Path. Instead of forcing you to do those things right when the photo is taken, the option is added to your timeline. These apps are stripped down, super simple versions of the those used on smartphones and tablets today. You can share to existing groups, or in the case of Path, you can interact with shared photos through Path emoticons that now take up the whole screen.When text messages and emails come in to Glass, you are offered a brief pop up on the headset with the information. You can choose to have the text read to you by Glass, or hover for a moment while you scan over it. When you want to reply, you can use your voice to populate the fields. This same setup can be applied to any service that displays text on the headset. For example, when demonstrating The New York Times app for Glass, the user is shown the headline for the article with the featured image in the background. When you find an article you like, you can tap and have it read to you. Sharing options from here are similar to Path or Skitch, with simple minimal feature sets.In their presentation for developers, Google made it clear that this was the way they expected all apps to function. Their presentation focuses on distraction free presentation setup where the information is made available to the user as a timeline based on when the events occurred. If you have too many notifications or do something to pollute the user’s timeline, your service will likely be uninstalled quickly. So it will be interesting to see how many developers use or abuse Glass for their app.last_img read more

Gabi hopes final will not be Griezmanns last game for Atletico

first_imgAtletico Madrid captain Gabi is hoping that tonight’s Europa League final against Marseille will not be Antoine Griezmann’s last game for the clubThe French forward has been strongly linked with a move to Barcelona in the summer and is looking increasingly likely to end his four-year association with Atletico.Since arriving from Real Sociedad in 2014 for the then-Champions League finalists, Griezmann has yet to win any silverware at the club.Tonight’s final in Lyon will be his first chance at finally ending that drought with Atletico aiming to win a record-equalling third Europa League crown.While acknowledging that a player of Griezmann’s calibre will always want to win, Gabi remains hopeful that he will remain at the Spanish capital.“We’ve been talking on Antoine [Griezmann] the whole year,” said the Spaniard, according to SportsKeeda.Gerard Pique, Neymar, BarcelonaLa Liga Betting: Match-day 4 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Despite it being very early into La Liga season, both Barcelona and Real Madrid have had unprecedented starts to their campaigns. With this in…“He is fine.“I see him very good, physically very good, focused in this game because it is very important for him to win a title.“With his level, he just wants to win titles. I wish it won’t be his last final with Atletico. Because we need him, and he knows that we all want him to stay.”After turning down a move to Manchester United last summer, Griezmann initially struggled to hit top form this season.But since January, he has put doubts over his uncertain future to one side and has now netted an impressive 27 goals in 47 appearances for Atletico this term.last_img read more

Bhattacharya says India had an unfortunate day

first_imgThe India national team lost 2-0 against the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in their second match of the 2019 AFC Asian Cup.After winning 4-1 against Thailand in their first match on the 2019 AFC Asian Cup, many thought India would qualify to the next round without a problem.But today the Indian national team failed to win against the United Arab Emirates (UAE), losing at the end 2-0.“We were unfortunate today. We wasted silly chances and we had to pay for it. We created more chances than UAE and yet we lost the game,” India goalkeeper Atanu Bhattacharya told Goal.AIFF wants to change the face of Indian football Manuel R. Medina – August 7, 2019 The All India Football Federation (AIFF) is working closely with FIFA in order to fix the state of football in the country that has two first division football leagues.“We had scored from those chances on previous occasions but we failed today. (Sunil) Chhetri missed two chances, Ashique (Kuruniyan) also a couple. Then (Sandesh) Jhingan’s header went wide by a few yards.”“The strikers should have been more clinical. India started well but I felt the thrust went missing in the second half,” he added.“It was not Chhetri’s day. He had converted these chances on numerous occasions. He jumped well between two defenders and credit must be given to the keeper as well for that save (in the first half).”last_img read more

Britain will reportedly allow Huawei limited access to 5G infrastructure

first_img 0 1:11 Share your voice 40 Photos The decision could frustrate the US, which earlier this year pressured its European allies not to adopt Huawei 5G equipment, citing fears that it could be used to spy for China.Huawei has continued to deny ties to the Chinese government involving its technology. “While we await a formal government announcement, we are pleased that the UK is continuing to take an evidence-based approach to its work and we will continue to work cooperatively with the government, and the industry,” a Huawei spokesperson said in an emailed statement.At a press event Wednesday, members of the Homeland Security Department’s supply chain task force pointed out that even if Huawei was building only “noncore” parts of the UK’s 5G infrastructure, it could still pose security risks. Robert Mayer, senior vice president of cybersecurity at the trade group US Telecom, referred to the UK’s report released in March criticizing Huawei’s security shortcomings. The report said that the company’s approach to software development brings “significantly increased risk to UK operators.””They state very specifically that they can still only provide limited assurances that there’s not a national security issue,” Mayer said. “Are we at a point in time when major allies are saying ‘we can only provide limited assurances?’ Is that the bar that we are going to set? I don’t believe that’s the bar the US government is setting.” The DHS task force is an effort between the US government and private industries to manage supply chain risks like the ones Huawei could pose. Bob Kolasky, director of the DHS’ National Risk Management Center, noted that foreign adversaries have shifted from direct cyberattacks to long-term tactics through supply chain attacks.”The framework we’re trying to build is to have as much understanding of how much risk we’re taking, and then continue to monitor the risk,” he said. UK lawmakers have also spoken out against this decision. Norman Lamb, the chair of the Science and Technology Select Committee, noted there’s “significant disagreement” over the reported decision and that ministers will be questioned in an evidence session.”It is vital that this country makes its own decisions regarding matters of national security, rather than bowing to pressure from others,” Lamb wrote in a statement. “However, protecting our national security is non-negotiable. Judgements must be based on evidence and a robust evaluation of risk.”Originally published April 24, 2:49 a.m. PT.Updates, 3:43 a.m.: Adds government response; 9:33 a.m.: Includes remarks from the US Department of Homeland Security. Now playing: Watch this: FBI director slams Huawei and ZTE phones Post a comment Internet Services Politics 5G Huawei British Prime Minister Theresa May isn’t opposed to giving Huawei a bit of 5G-related work. Leon Neal/Getty Images British Prime Minister Theresa May apparently gave Huawei the thumbs-up to help build the country’s 5G infrastructure, in a limited way.The National Security Council, which May chairs, agreed on Tuesday to let the scandal-scarred Chinese telecommunications giant work on “noncore” parts of the infrastructure, the Telegraph reported.Huawei has been a frontrunner for developing 5G infrastructure at this crucial early stage of the evolution of the technology. But the company comes with a security warning — including from the British government. In February, the GCHQ’s chief criticized Huawei over security threats it poses from the Chinese government. The US has continually warned its allies about security concerns with Huawei, and it was banned for 5G by the Australian government last August. The concerns stem around the Chinese government’s interference with 5G infrastructure built by Huawei.Home Secretary Sajid Javid, Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson, International Trade Secretary Liam Fox and International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt expressed concerns about the agreement, the paper noted.A government spokesperson said via email that the council’s decisions are “confidential” and that the security of the country’s telecoms network is “of paramount importance.””As part of our plans to provide world-class digital connectivity, including 5G, we have conducted an evidence based review of the supply chain to ensure a diverse and secure supply base, now and into the future,” the spokesperson wrote, adding that the conclusions drawn from the review would be reported “in due course.” Huawei P30 Pro’s four rear cameras from every angle Tagslast_img read more

AL founded to bring back independence of Bangla Hasina

first_imgPrime minister Sheikh Hasina. BSS File PhotoPrime minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday reiterated her determination to build a hunger and poverty-free ‘Sonar Bangla’ as dreamt by Bangabandhu.She said this during inaugurating the 70th founding anniversary programmes of Bangladesh Awami League (AL) in front of Bangabandhu Bhaban in capital’s Dhanmondi area this morning, reports BSS.“On this historic day, it’s our pledge to build a hunger-and-poverty-free and prosperous ‘Sonar Bangla’ as dreamt by father of the nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman,” she said.Sheikh Hasina, also the AL president, said Bangladesh is marching towards socio-economic development and the Bangalee nation achieved dignity in the entire world after the Awami League came to power.“The nation lost this dignity after the assassination of Bangabandhu on 15 August in 1975,” she said.The prime minister said the Awami League was founded to bring back the lost independence of Bangla.“Today is the founding anniversary of that Awami League,” she said, adding, “Whenever Awami League comes to power, it gives (something) to the country and people.”At the outset of her speech, the AL president narrated the history of establishment of the country’s oldest and biggest political party.She also paid tributes to Bangabandhu and four national leaders as well as numerous party leaders and workers who sacrificed their lives for establishing rights of the people.Earlier, the prime minister inaugurated the 70th founding anniversary programmes of the Awami League by hoisting the national flag and releasing pigeons and balloons, while AL general secretary Obaidul Quader raised the party flag.The national anthem was sung on the occasion.Earlier, Sheikh Hasina placed a wreath at the portrait of the father of the nation in front of Bangabandhu Bhaban marking the party’s founding anniversary.After laying the wreath, the prime minister stood in solemn silence for sometime as a mark of profound respect to the memory of Bangabandhu, the architect of independence.Flanked by senior leaders of the party, Sheikh Hasina placed another wreath at the portrait of Bangabandhu on behalf of her party.The Awami League was founded on this day in 1949, which was later transformed into the biggest political party of the country by leading all the democratic-political-social-cultural movements including the long arduous struggle for freedom and the liberation war.last_img read more

Researchers from the Johns Hopkins University, Thomas Jefferson University, Boston University and University of Washington presented abstracts focusing on use of novel radiotracers, new clinical applications as well as low-dose imaging with PEM. Mathew Thakur, M.D., from Thomas Jefferson University presented results of an ongoing head-to-head comparison of 18F-FDG with a novel low-dose radiotracer Cu-64-TP3805 (NuView Life Sciences, Park City, UT) demonstrating concordance. This is significant since the dose from Cu-64 is similar to one mammogram and does not require fasting indicating a potential for PEM to be used in a screening capacity. Richard Wahl, M.D. of Johns Hopkins University presented results on feasibility of using the technology for metabolic assessment and evaluation of treatment response for patients with osteoarthritis. Gustavo Mercier, M.D. from Boston University and Lawrence MacDonald from University of Washington shared clinical and research validations of performing PEM imaging using 50 percent less radiation. PEM imaging shows the location as well as the metabolic phase of a lesion. This information is critical in determining whether a lesion is malignant and influences the course of treatment by providing an ability to distinguish between benign and malignant lesions, what researchers term “specificity.” Recent studies have demonstrated that PEM has similar sensitivity and higher specificity than breast MRI. The scanner is the only U.S. Food and Drug Administration-cleared, CE-certified 3D molecular breast imaging (MBI), device on the market with biopsy-guidance. For more information: www.naviscan.com  FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Qlarity Imaging’s software is used to assist radiologists in the assessment and characterization of breast lesions.
