New magnetic field detector could improve medical imaging

new imaging sensorResearchers at MIT say they've designed a hyper-sensitive magnetic field detector that could be used to improve medical imaging technologies and more effectively identify contraband at security checkpoints.

The dangerous Medicare loophole of 'observation status'

Medicare loopholeOn the morning of Sept. 23, 2014, Caroline Giada woke up in her home in coastal New Jersey. She rose from bed, walked over to the bathroom and fainted, hitting her back on the sink cabinet on the way down. When she came to, she couldn’t move. So she called 911.

The 76-year-old was taken to the emergency room, where the attending nurses looked her over and booked her into a bed. Over the next six days, she was given every kind of test imaginable: X-rays, electrocardiogram, CT scan, ultrasound, MRI. Nurses came and went. So did doctors. Finally, a week later, the problem was uncovered: a fracture in the L5 segment of Giada’s lower spine. They called in a specialist, but he said he couldn’t operate until the following Thursday.
