    A PET scan can compare brain activity during periods of depression (left) with normal brain activity (right). An increase of blue and green colors, along with decreased white and yellow areas, shows decreased brain activity due to depression.

    Marie Curie (1867-1934) Two-time Nobel laureate Marie Curie discovered polonium and radium, founded the concept of radiology and — above all — made the possibility of a scientific career seem within reach for countless girls and women around the world. The first woman to receive the Nobel Prize and the first female Professor of General Physics in the Faculty of Sciences at the Sorbonne in Paris, Curie was beloved by her colleagues for her calm, singular focus, lack of pretense and professional drive. Her work with radiation is now part of the most sophisticated cancer-treatment protocols in the world, though she herself succumbed to leukemia after decades of daily radiation exposure.

    Technetium is the chemical element with atomic number 43 and symbol Tc. It is the lowest atomic number element without any stable isotopes; every form of it is radioactive. It is a by product of nuclear fission and natural uranium decay. Applications are in the Nuclear medicine and nuclear biology industry and the chemical industry as catalyst to form anti-corrosive coatings.

    MR/PET imaging is feasible for the staging of lung cancer, w diagnostic image quality sufficient for assessment of pulmonary masses & similar lesion characterization as with PET/CT, according to a study published in the Aug issue of Radiology. The results indicate MR/PET could provide an alternative modality in thoracic imaging, w approximately a quarter of the radiation dose as compared with PET/CT.

    Cocaine Vaccine Gets a Boost With Molecular Imaging | ITN Online: Addicts unable to kick a cocaine habit could one day be vaccinated against cocaine and see proof with a molecular imaging technique that shows how the vaccine prompts antibodies to whisk away the drug before it can reach the brain, said researchers at the recently concluded 59th Annual Meeting of the Society of Nuclear Medicine, held in Miami Beach, Fla.

    Rosalyn Sussan Yalow, co-recipient of the Nobel Prize in Medicine/Physiology in 1977, although both her M.S. and Ph.D. were earned in nuclear physics for the development of radioimmunoassay. She wanted to go to medical school but she was a woman and Jewish and was advised to become a secretary. She and Dr. Solomon Berson, discovered radioisotopes for diagnosis to measure minute quantities of biologically active molecules. Both researchers refused to patent the method and gave it to the world.
