Clarksons Vessel Orders Take a Nosedive in Q3

first_imgzoom Overall contracting of new vessels plunged in the three-month period from July to September to a mere 88 units, according to data provided by Clarkson Research.When compared to the same period in 2015, the orders dropped by some 81 percent from 481 vessel orders.Due to an oversupply in the shipping market, accompanied by low freight rates, the owners were not eager to invest in newbuildings during the third quarter.In September, the shipbuilders received a total of 18 new orders, a 91 percent drop from the 220 ship orders placed in the same month a year earlier.During August the owners ordered 45 new ships, down from 101 reported in the same month in 2015, while July numbers reached 25 new orders, compared to 160 placed a year before.Clarksons earlier said that the shrinking orderbook has led the number of active yards, ones which have at least one vessel (1,000+ GT) on order, to decline since the financial crisis in 2009.The number of ‘active’ shipyards globally has more than halved since the start of 2009, falling to around 400 shipyards at the start of September 2016.As of start September 2016 there were 402 active yards, down 57% on the 2009 peak, Clarkson Research said.Alongside this drop in the number of active yards, newbuild output has fallen and this year is projected to stand 34% below its 2010 peak in CGT terms.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

Congress workers want Priyanka as UP CM candidate

first_imgRae Bareli: Congress workers from Uttar Pradesh are now demanding that the party should project Priyanka Gandhi Vadra as the partys chief ministerial candidate for the 2022 Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls. While party leaders, who held day-long deliberations with the Congress General Secretary in-charge of eastern part of the state, said that the party’s revival was sure if Gandhi was projected as Chief Minister in 2022. Talking to reporters after the thanksgiving dinner hosted by UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi in Rae Bareli on Wednesday night, former Varanasi MP Rajesh Misra said: “We are requesting Priyanka Gandhi to strengthen the party for the upcoming bypolls and state elections. We have also conveyed to her that she should become the chief ministerial face to challenge the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP).” Also Read – IAF receives its first Rafale fighter jet from France “Most of us believe that the main reason behind Congress’s drubbing is weak organisation in most constituencies. The same was also conveyed in the meeting. We have decided to work harder and strengthen our party at the booth level across Uttar Pradesh. “If Priyanka Gandhi starts a door to door campaign then we will definitely form the next government in the state,” he added. Congress candidate from Fatehpur constituency and former MP, Rakesh Sachan, said: “Party workers want Priyanka Gandhi to lead Congress in the Assembly polls. We have lost the elections because the BJP was able to successfully polarise the elections.” Also Read – Cosmology trio win Nobel Physics Prize Former BJP MP Savitri Bai Phule who had lost on a Congress ticket from Bahraich, meanwhile, said: “We have lost the polls because the Lok Sabha elections did not happen through ballot paper system. “The BJP has muzzled the democracy and irregularities in EVM were witnessed everywhere. I will request the leadership to start a nationwide movement demanding future polls be held through ballot paper.” Meanwhile, Sonia Gandhi’s dinner at the Bhuemau guest house was attended by local leaders and booth level workers. She thanked them for contributing to her victory for the fourth consecutive term from Rae Bareli. Priyanka, meanwhile, urged Congress leaders to be prepared for the struggle ahead and said: “Apna maan bana lijiye…kaam karna hai, dil se karna hai toh sangharsh karna padega..(make up your mind, we have to work.. work with your heart and take up the struggle).” She also said she will return to review the poll performance and would sit with individual leaders to take detailed feedback. She also pulled up party workers in Rae Bareli and cautioned them: “Yeh chunav Sonia Gandhi ne aur janta ne jitaya hai. Sachai yeh hai keh aap sab mein se jis ne dil se kaam kiya hai uski jaankari aap ko hai aur kisne nahi kiya hai uski jaankari main karungi (The truth is that this election has been won by Sonia Gandi and the people of Rae Bareli. Those who have worked for the party know this in their hearts and I will find out all those who have not).”last_img read more

UN expert urges Chad to step up efforts to protect internally displaced

11 February 2009An independent United Nations human rights expert has called on the Government of Chad to boost its efforts in protecting the tens of thousands of civilians forced from their homes to escape the ongoing violence in the African nation. Eastern Chad is suffering from a spill-over from wars in neighbouring Sudan’s Darfur region and the Central African Republic (CAR), as well as its own rebel conflict and crimes committed in the country by heavily armed bandits.The region faces an acute humanitarian challenge with over 290,000 Sudanese refugees and 10,000 refugees from CAR in the remote village of Daha, as well as over 160,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs) and a further 700,000 individuals sheltered by host communities, all in need of basic supplies for survival.“Protecting the rights of displaced persons is primarily the responsibility of the Government of Chad,” said Walter Kaelin, the Secretary-General’s Representative on the human rights of IDPs, following a week-long visit to the country.“It must engage vigorously to protect the human rights of thousands of Chadians who flee their homes in the east of the country, particularly their rights to security, food and water, health and education,” added Mr. Kaelin.The Representative urged the Government to redouble its efforts to assist displaced populations, underscoring his concerns that “violations of human rights continue to be perpetrated against IDPs, including the recruitment of children by various armed groups and gender-based violence suffered by displaced girls and women.”Mr. Kaelin also warned of the proliferation of weapons, the militarization of IDP sites, growing crime and the climate of impunity prevailing in the regions he visited, which affect the security of displaced populations and distracts attention from finding solutions to the building humanitarian crisis.Noting that some people had decided to return home despite the precarious security conditions and a lack of access to basic services, Mr. Kaelin stressed that it is up to national authorities, with the assistance of the international community, to create the conditions that enable IDPs to lead their lives whether returning home, integrating into a local shelter or moving to a safer part of the country. read more

Water Mother now on display

Michael Barber’s Water Mother is now on display in the Norfolk Arts Centre.Water Mother is a wood-and-resin sculpture that combines woodworking and sandblasting that was created in partnership with Great Art for Great Lakes. The public participated in the creation of the piece by making marks to be sandblasted into the wood.“It was difficult to come up with a concept because I wanted to come up with something that I thought was worthy,” said Barber. “I found a way to include the public by them leaving their mark. It’s satisfying to see it done now.”Barber held events throughout the summer for the public to learn about their commitment to water, and to create a mark to be placed on the installment.Close to 150 locals created marks for the piece. Before they were able to create their mark they completed a survey about their involvement in preserving the Great Lakes.“I think that we all need to do better, and I think that this is a symbol of the commitment our community has made to Lake Erie and the water in general,” said Barber. “I just hope that it serves as a reminder that we have to do better.”Early in the spring artists submitted proposals to Great Art for Great Lakes for a community-engagement project to strengthen local residents’ relationship with the Great Lakes. Barber, along with Suzanne Earls and Holly Anderson, were the artists chosen for the project.The concepts of the proposals needed to be a piece that would include members of the public, and be something that would spread awareness of water pollution and the health of the Great Lakes.Water Mother is now permanently installed in the Norfolk Arts Centre and can be viewed by the public.“This is a beautiful building in downtown Simcoe, it’s an honour to have my work included here,” said Barber.The Depths and Consequences piece created by Earls and Anderson will be unveiled at the Port Dover Harbour Museum on Oct. 8 at 7 p.m.astaylor@postmedia.com read more

Drone company demos how blood airdrops will work in Rwanda

LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Drone delivery might be years away in the U.S., but it’s becoming a reality in Rwanda this summer.A San Francisco-based drone delivery company says it’ll start making its first deliveries of blood and medicine in Rwanda in July.Zipline International Inc., backed by tech heavyweights like Sequoia Capital and Google Ventures, demonstrated its technology for journalists last week in an open field in the San Francisco Bay area.In a demo broadcast on Periscope on Friday, a staffer launched a fixed-wing plane weighing just 22 pounds off a launcher that used compressed air.Electric-powered propellers took it the rest of the way, on a flight that could extend to 75 miles round trip, using military-grade GPS and software to navigate.As it dipped low before the drop-off area, the bottom popped open, and a cardboard box with a parachute made of butcher paper and biodegradable tape burst out, plopping to the ground a few steps away from CEO Keller Rinaudo, who walked over to retrieve it.“You have a database of people. You know their lives are in danger,” he said. “Can you get them what they need fast enough? That’s been the mission from the start.”Company executives said the cost of each flight was about the same as a motorcycle trip, but far more reliable.And because deliveries of packages up to 3.5 pounds could be completed in 15-30 minutes, modest packaging eliminated the need for refrigeration along the way, which saves on wasted supplies such as blood.“We leapfrog broken refrigerators, we leapfrog the lack of roads,” said Keenan Wyrobek, Zipline’s head of product and engineering.Two hubs contained in modified shipping containers with 10 to 15 planes each are all that’s required to serve all of Rwanda, the company says. The Rwandan government announced its deal with Zipline in February.It plans to operate in other countries later this year if it proves it can operate successfully in Rwanda.Rinaudo says the company for now is focused on medical supply delivery in emerging economies where there is less air traffic and regulations are easier to deal with than in the U.S. or Europe.“The U.S. has one of the most complicated airspaces in the world and for that reason the (Federal Aviation Administration) is even more risk-averse than most regulators,” he said. “So I think where this will start is in environments where the need is incredibly high and the airspace is relatively empty.”___AP Video Journalist Terry Chea in San Francisco contributed to this report.___Follow AP Business Writer Ryan Nakashima at https://twitter.com/rnakashi .

Wasp warning as hot weather brings worst year ever for stinging insects

The problem has been particularly bad in East Anglia, experts say, because the country has had some of the warmest weather in the country this summer.  This summer is one of the worst we have had for wasps, pest controllers have said, because of the hot weather. The worst wasp behaviour is yet to come, according to experts, with a warm autumn expected, which will cause a longer lifespan for the stinging creatures.By that time, the queens will be back in hibernation, so the worker wasps will have no purpose and spend the weeks in desperate search of sugar, invading pub gardens and al fresco dinners.Natalie Bongay,  technical officer at the British Pest Control Association said pest controllers across the country are having to destroy up to 15 wasp nests a day.She told The Telegraph: “Every pest controller I see, they say ‘wow there’s a lot of wasp nests’ – last year they were doing 1 or 2 a day and this year they’re doing between 8 and 15.”All insects will thrive a lot more efficiently in weather like this because it speeds up their metabolism and egg production. Berries, their food source, are also more abundant.”Wasps tend to die off when the first frost hits. But if we’re not going to get those frosts as quickly they’ll possibly even grow in size and breed more.” Sam Devereux, the general manager JG Pest Control, one of the leading wasp and hornet removal services in London and the south east, said his business has been extremely busy.

He told The Telegraph: “It’s been a bad year for the general public but a very good year for us.”We have seen the best year in the seven years I’ve been in the industry. The busiest wasp season we have ever had.”This is because the summer started early and the hot weather has been going on for longer.”The queen wasps hibernate through winter and wake up when it’s nice and warm. They usually wake up in the middle of May, but this year woke up in April.”The worker wasps helps the queen nest and then they go into peoples properties. We’ve seen a huge increase in this, we have had to remove a lot of wasp nests. “The warmer it stays, the longer they’ll be around.”He said the problem will worsen as summer goes on, explaining: “The male wasps, the worker wasps, in a warm September and October after the queen has gone back into hibernation, have no purpose at that point.”That’s when they start coming up to you, swimming in your cider, going into your food and getting aggressive. We are anticipating huge numbers of aggressive wasps at this time.”We are anticipating being busy well into October.” Richard Pummell of Norwich and Norfolk Pest Control told the EDP the prevalence of wasps has been  “the worst in my 26-year history of doing the job”.Andrew Dellbridge of Ace Pest Control added the amount of wasps this year had been “unseasonal”, adding that the number of nests he had cleared had increased from “four or five every one or two months” to “dozens upon dozens a week.”Wasp nests can contain anywhere between 5,000 and 10,000 wasps at the peak of summer. read more

Catalans make a human chain for independence

first_imgWe have come out in our hundreds of thousands into the street to show in a democratic and inclusive way that we are capable of achieving any aim we set ourselves.She said earlier that the rally aimed to draw 400,000 people and to stretch for 400 kilometres along Catalonia’s Mediterranean coast.(AP Photo/Paco Serinelli)The chain passed by landmarks such as the Sagrada Familia basilica in Barcelona and the city’s Camp Nou football stadium.Demonstrators, many wearing yellow t-shirts bearing the slogan “Catalan Way Towards Independence”, joined hands at 5.14 pm (local time) as rain showers gave way to sunshine.The timing was a reference to the year 1714, the date of the military defeat which for many Catalan nationalists marked the beginning of oppression by the Spanish state.The  protest marked Catalonia’s national day, the Diada, which recalls the conquest of Barcelona by Spanish king Philip V’s forces that year.A giant length of material in the form and colours of a Catalonian national flag is carried through the street as people form a human chain in Barcelona. (AP Photo/ Joan Manuel Baliellas)Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy’s conservative government refuses to countenance a break-up of Spain, and has vowed to block a referendum on self-rule that Catalonia’s regional president Artur Mas has promised for 2014.A referendum would be a “unilateral declaration of independence that would have serious consequences for Spain and also for Catalonia” which would have to “bid farewell to the European Union”, Spanish Foreign Minister Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo warned.“With the strength of our unity, they can’t deny us a referendum and independence,” said Fina Agullo, 65, as she took part in the human chain in front of the Sagrada Familia basilica.In Barcelona’s Plaza de Espana square, giant yellow letters placed on the grass spelt out in English: “We want independence”.Mas, who avoids using the word “independence” in his demands, said Catalans “must be consulted next year on their political future” and vowed to use all “legal and democratic means” to that end.He confirmed that he had held covert talks on the issue with Rajoy on 29 August.“We are in dialogue with the government but I doubt very much that this dialogue will bear fruit. I do not see any political will,” he told foreign reporters in a briefing.(AP Photo/Paco Serinelli)Catalonia has long been considered an engine of Spain’s economy, but it has suffered in the economic crisis of recent years.Its unemployment rate has climbed close to 24 per cent, its debts exceed €50 billion and it had to ask Madrid for €9.07 billion from a fund to help debt-laden regions.Last year Rajoy rejected Mas’s demands to give Catalonia greater freedom to tax and spend.“That would have solved much of the problem a year ago, but now, a fiscal pact will not solve the problem,” Mas said.Any solution for Catalonia must come from the ballot box, from a consultation, from a referendum.He said that if Madrid blocked a referendum in 2014, the next regional elections due in 2016 would serve as a plebiscite on self-determination.“The referendum cannot be delayed,” said Arnau Ivern, an 18-year-old physics student, joining the rally in Barcelona FC’s Camp Nou football stadium.“The feeling is very strong now and it is not good to draw the process out. We are a democracy, we have to push ahead.”Obama: “I have a deeply held preference for peaceful solutions”Here’s what happened today: Wednesday CATALANS MASSED IN a vast human chain stretching hundreds of kilometres along the Mediterranean coast today, demanding independence from Spain in the face of fierce opposition from the national government.Hundreds of thousands of people in yellow t-shirts joined in, according to organisers, yelling “Independence!”They linked hands and raised them in the air along highways and through towns in the northeastern region, amid countless pro-independence flags bearing the red and yellow stripes of Catalonia overlaid with a white star on a blue background.(AP Photo/Paco Serinelli)Proud of their Catalan language and culture, but suffering now in a recession, many of the 7.5 million people in debt-laden Catalonia say they feel short-changed by the central government which redistributes their taxes.“We need to put an end to the cultural and economic suffocation we are suffering,” said Carme Forcadell, president of the Catalan National Assembly, the grassroots group organising the human chain.last_img read more

IBM uses custom evervigilant Roombas to protect its data centers

first_imgWe live in a time when automated robots that slink around the floor while eating all of your unswept refuse is a common, socially accepted occurrence. Yes, the Roomba provides a must-have service for those that would rather have an adorable robot slave do the housecleaning, but IBM has found another use for the cute little guy. Taking your cat’s favorite motorized toy, IBM transformed the Roomba into the watchful eye of a data center, monitoring the level of heat, which could raise cooling costs, or even damage or destroy the hardware if left unchecked.Using iRobot’s customizable Roomba platform, iRobot Create, IBM built a Roomba that moseys around a data center with sensors and a webcam attached, measuring temperature and humidity, and creating maps of their distribution. IBM uses the resulting maps to see where hot spots are developing and endangering the hardware, as well as to figure out if any cold air is being wasted and how to better distribute it. These maps not only help cool the hardware, but also help save energy via increased cooling efficiency.Along with temperature mapping, the autonomous cartographers can scan RFID tags, so they can also do a bit of inventory while they’re seeking heat. Just like menial vacuuming, the IBM Roombas alleviate a once-manual task, where people had to push a mobile cart around the data centers in order to create the temperature maps. However, as any Roomba owner knows, the little vacuums aren’t completely autonomous, as their favorite activity seems to be getting stuck under things, or falling prey to an infinite loop of bumping back and forth between tight spaces. So, the attached webcam allows an operator to pilot the device just in case it runs into any obstacles.IBM currently has nine of the Roomba cartographers up and running in its data centers, but plans to add to that population by the end of this year.last_img read more

Govt may ask troika for mobility scheme extension

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram As workers’ unions heralded industrial action to protest an overhaul of the civil service pledged by the government to the country’s troika of international lenders, Administrative Reform Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, who is overseeing the cutbacks, suggested that Athens might ask the troika for an extension to a December 31 deadline for inducting a second round of 12,500 civil servants into a mobility scheme. Mitsotakis had insisted that the government is on track for putting a first round of 12,500 public sector workers into the scheme, which puts staff on reduced pay ahead of their transfer to another post or dismissal, by the end of next month. But he appeared to concede on Tuesday that it will not be so easy to put another 12,500 employees into the same scheme a few months later, as Greece has promised the troika. “We shall see. We don’t want to make any hasty moves,” Mitsotakis said when asked by reporters on Mega TV whether he planned to broach the matter with troika mission chiefs on their scheduled return to Athens at the end of September. “We will discuss this in a month’s time,” he said. Sources indicated that such a request is only likely to be made in the event that the troika issues a positive report on Greece’s progress with economic reforms. Questioned about layoffs in the civil service, which Greece must also carry out in parallel to the mobility scheme, Mitsotakis said the majority of dismissals would involve civil servants who have been found guilty of disciplinary offences. He added however that some would come from the ranks of public sector workers put into the mobility scheme. Meanwhile, unions representing sectors of the civil service most directly affected by the overhaul were planning to scale up their protests. Members of the Federation of Secondary School Teachers (OLME) convened this week to discuss strike action which is reportedly likely to start around mid-September. Mitsotakis indicated in comments to Mega TV that authorities will fight back if teachers go ahead with planned strike action next month. “The government will not tolerate closed schools, not even for a day,” he said. “We can’t have a situation where nothing changes so that certain people can retain their privileges,” he added.

Bean bag baseball a big hit with local seniors

first_imgMaybe the cheerleaders don’t show quite as much leg as they used to, but they sure wave their pompoms and clack their blue clackers with spirit. Maybe the players are slower getting up to the pitcher’s line, but Rick Owen is there to cheer them on and then challenge them with his cries of “Hey batter, hey batter.”Maybe 102-year-old Dolly Anders can’t play anymore, but she’s still recording the scores and calculating the stats. “We take this very seriously,” she said, her smile tightening at the suggestion that anybody wouldn’t.There’s the windup — and the pitch. The blue bean bag tumbles through the air and plops directly into the “Home run” hole. The crowd erupts in hollers and applause, activity director and team coach Kathi Walko hoots through a big white megaphone, and one gray-haired champion pumps her fist in the air.Bean bag baseball fever has hit the Cascade Inn, a 186-apartment senior citizen home on Southeast Seventh Street, as well as many other retirement homes in Clark County and throughout the nation. Nobody on hand is exactly sure who got it started and how, but the game has become a popular pastime for residents looking for camaraderie and laughs, exercise and excitement.“They are competitive. They get a little rowdy. I love it,” said director of services Kathryn Merrill. The Cascade Inn once hosted a daylong tournament that drew teams from sister retirement inns and featured special courts, lunches, popcorn and other festivities; sometimes competitions are held at other facilities and even at the Firstenburg Community Center. The National Anthem is always played before the game, of course.last_img read more

Taylor, M.D., chair of the writing committee and professor of medicine, Georgetown University, Washington, D.C. “This update adds to our understanding of selecting the best candidates for cardiac CT imaging so that doctors can help perform the right test in the right patient at the right time.”The original appropriate use criteria for CCT were issued in 2006. Since then, technological advances have made it safer and easier to use, according to Taylor.“This document reflects this progress in knowledge and our desire to make the criteria more comprehensive to more closely match a patient situation to the test and help in clinical decision making,” he added, emphasizing that selecting the proper patients for testing is an essential first step in the provision of quality cardiac care. For the update, a panel assessed the appropriateness of CCT imaging for 93 different clinical scenarios, scoring each to determine if it was appropriate, inappropriate or uncertain for a given situation. “If we know a patient has existing heart problems or is at high risk for heart disease, doing the test isn’t generally going to add any valuable clinical information,” Taylor said. “Ordering a test when a patient doesn’t need it—or won’t benefit—is not quality cardiac care.” For more information: www.cardiosource.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 The CT scanner might not come with protocols that are adequate for each hospital situation, so at Phoenix Children’s Hospital they designed their own protocols, said Dianna Bardo, M.D., director of body MR and co-director of the 3D Innovation Lab at Phoenix Children’s.

CT Cancer Risk Poorly Understood by Many Healthcare Providers

first_img Image courtesy of Imago Systems News | Neuro Imaging | August 16, 2019 ADHD Medication May Affect Brain Development in Children A drug used to treat attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) appears to affect development of the brain’s… read more Related Content The CT scanner might not come with protocols that are adequate for each hospital situation, so at Phoenix Children’s Hospital they designed their own protocols, said Dianna Bardo, M.D., director of body MR and co-director of the 3D Innovation Lab at Phoenix Children’s. June 27, 2016 — A new study in the Journal of Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences surveyed doctors, radiologists and imaging technologists regarding their beliefs about radiation exposure from computed tomography (CT). The survey found that while most respondents recognized there is an increased risk of cancer from CT, many underestimated the actual radiation dose.Researchers from the University of Saskatchewan wanted to assess healthcare providers’ knowledge regarding radiation dosing from CT scans. Using a survey of medical professionals in Saskatchewan, investigators found that 73 percent of physicians, 97 percent of radiologists and 76 percent of technologists correctly identified that there is an increased cancer risk from one abdominal-pelvic CT. However, only 18 percent of physicians, 28 percent of radiologists and 22 percent of technologists were able to correctly identify the dose in relation to chest X-rays. Although 48 percent of physicians, 78 percent of radiologists and 63 percent of technologists either accurately estimated or overestimated this dose, many respondents underestimated the dose level.”Underestimating radiation dose from a CT scan is more concerning than knowing the exact dose level, particularly when it is a vast underestimation, as this may lead to minimization of the risk estimate when considering a test,” explained lead investigator David Leswick, M.D., FRCPC, Department of Medical Imaging, College of Medicine, University of Saskatchewan.The issue of radiation exposure is significant as doctors continue to order CT scans with increasing frequency. In Canada alone, there were an estimated 4.4 million CT scans conducted in 2011-2012. Measured in millisieverts (mSv), the average radiation dose from an abdominal-pelvic CT is 10 mSv, compared to 0.02 to 0.2 mSv from one chest X-ray, meaning that a radiation dose from a CT scan is best approximated as between that from 100-250 chest radiographs.”Although risk from radiation dose levels in the range of medical imaging procedures is small, it is real as evidenced from atomic bomb survivors and nuclear industry workers showing significantly increased risk of malignancy after exposure to doses in the range of diagnostic CT,” said Leswick. “The risk of fatal malignancy may be as high as 1 in 1000 for a 10-mSv exposure (approximate dose of an abdomen-pelvis CT). This risk is significant on a population basis, with up to 2 percent of cancers in the United States population possibly attributable to CT.”With such a clear risk relationship between radiation exposure and cancer, it is imperative that healthcare providers understand the facts to ensure the benefits outweigh the possible danger when ordering a diagnostic CT. The survey indicated that 93 percent of respondents were interested in radiation dose feedback when considering ordering a CT scan. Automated dose calculation software and radiology information systems can be integrated into electronic ordering, which would give doctors immediate access to information when considering ordering a scan.Another interesting aspect highlighted by the survey was some confusion regarding radiation exposure from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound. MRIs and ultrasounds do not employ ionizing radiation and yet 20 percent of physicians, 6 percent of radiologists and 7 percent of technologists attributed radiation exposure to MRIs, and 11 percent of physicians, 0 percent of radiologists and 7 percent of technologists believed an ultrasound used radiation. “Belief that ionizing radiation is utilized by ultrasound and MRI is troubling as it may result in underutilization of these imaging modalities because of unfounded radiation concerns,” added Leswick.While CT scans can be a lifesaving diagnostic tool, they also present a potential danger if they are overused or incorrectly implemented. It is vital that doctors and other healthcare practitioners fully understand the implications of ordering a CT scan and that patients are counseled appropriately about all available forms of testing and the potential radiation exposure involved.”Unfortunately, healthcare providers including physicians, radiologists and medical imaging technologists are often not aware of radiation doses for common CT scans,” concluded Leswick. “It is important for healthcare professionals (including referring physicians, radiologists and technologists) to be aware of radiation dose levels and risks from imaging tests for several reasons, including the ability to weigh the risks and benefits of tests, counsel patients on relevant risks, optimize protocols to minimize radiation dose, and select appropriate protocols to minimize radiation dose.”For more information: www.jmirs.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Mammography | August 14, 2019 Imago Systems Announces Collaboration With Mayo Clinic for Breast Imaging Image visualization company Imago Systems announced it has signed a know-how license with Mayo Clinic.

The Cardinals would allow Palmer at least a chance

first_imgThe Cardinals would allow Palmer at least a chance to be a starter. Arizona cut Kevin Kolb earlier this month and have Brian Hoyer, Drew Stanton, John Skelton, and Ryan Lindley on the roster.But Palmer’s willingness to possibly make a short trip across the Bay to San Francisco, where he would back up Colin Kaepernick, reveals his desire to be on the roster of a contending team. Palmer has enjoyed just two winning seasons in nine years with the Raiders and Cincinnati Bengals. Both were in Cincinnati. After being dealt to Oakland in October 2011, Palmer has been somewhat underwhelming for the Raiders. The former Heisman Trophy winner was 8-16 as a starter and threw 35 touchdowns and 30 interceptions in 25 appearances.
