Not Remembering, and Not Knowing ItPeople who will develop dementia may begin to lose awareness of their memory problems two to three years before the actual onset of the disease, according to a new study by researchers at Rush.
The look at prostate cancer is changing in the urological field. The prostate has been a very difficult organ to image. Now we can look inside the prostate with an MRI [magnetic resonance imaging]. So, now if a patient has an elevated PSA [Prostate-Specific Antigen] at their primary care doctor, and he sends them to the urologist who will say, ‘Oh, we have to do a biopsy.’ The answer is, ‘No, we don’t.’ We’re going to now do an MRI. If we don’t see anything, you’re okay. We’ll see you in a year. If we do see something, we’ll be able to target exactly what the MRI shows us and get to the spot that isn’t right.
