The Senate Finance Committee approved hiring former-health commissioner Bill Streur today as a consultant on the Medicaid budget and Medicaid expansion. Expanding the program as part of the Affordable Care Act is a priority of Governor Bill Walker, but many Republican lawmakers say the state can’t afford any new spending.Download AudioSenator Pete Kelly, a Republican from Fairbanks, made the case for hiring Streur. He said he would keep an open mind on Medicaid expansion but was against the idea.“That’s not the path we’re on, we’re not headed for a Medicaid expansion,” Kelly said. “Actually, right now, if you had to ask me for a vote, I’d vote no, but my mind is completely open.”Streur was commissioner under former Governor Sean Parnell, who was resisted expanding Medicaid, saying he didn’t want to accept federal dollars that would increase the national debt.Senator Lyman Hoffman, a Democrat from Bethel, made sure the committee wasn’t hiring Streur to advocate against expansion.Hoffman: “I wanted it on the record that the purpose of hiring Mr. Streur and his contract is not specifically find ways to give us justification not to expand Medicare.”Kelly: “That’s correct.”Hoffman: “Or Medicaid.”Kelly said Streur may have ideas that would convince lawmakers that Medicaid expansion could save the state money. As health commissioner, Streur explored options for expanding Medicaid.
Bareilly (UP):Uttarakhand Education Minister Arvind Pandey’s son Ankur has been killed after the car in which he was travelling hit a truck in Uttar Pradesh’s Bareilly district, police said Wednesday. Ankur, 24, was on his to Gorakhpur on Tuesday night along with two friends to attend a wedding when the incident happened near Future College on Lucknow Road in the district’s Faridpur area. His friend Munni Giri (26) was also killed in the accident, police said.

We might be living in a mash-up soaked society, but some are just too cool to ignore. That’s the case with this free mini-game from Star Wars: Force Collection created by Konami and LucasArts that features the classic game Contra with a Star Wars overhaul for iPhones, iPads and Android devices.In the game, you run and flip through four Endor-themed levels as Chewbacca blasting Stormtroopers with your bowcaster.Star Wars: Force Collection is actually a digital collectible card game where players amass a variety of cards, build decks, design blueprints, and take on challengers while figuring out whether they will land on the dark side or not. The game takes its inspiration from the six existing feature films, but will most likely include The Force Awakens-inspired characters around the film’s December 18 release date.The Chewbacca-starring Contra is part of a new update. Beating the mini-game will earn players an exclusive trophy for the main game. Other new additions to the main game include the appearance of a boss battle mode as well as C-3PO and R2-D2.Konami launched Contra in 1987 as an arcade game that was ported over to the NES the following year. The game featured a pair of soldiers named Bill and Lance running through levels taking out enemy soldiers and larger artillery. The game was tough, but offered plenty of fun from the wild level designs to the weapon power ups.If Konami and LucasArts are looking for other games to combine with the greatness of Star Wars, may I suggest Castlevania with Boba Fett, Lethal Enforcers with Han, and Leia or Dance Dance Revolution with Sy Snootles.
OBJ also has an absolute gun that he took the time to showcase during his annual youth football camp, in front of assembled campers. With a running start, Odell unleashed a bomb from the endzone that almost traveled the entire length of the field. It’s tough to tell exactly how far the exact distance of the rip, but it’s at least 80 yards, conservatively. Obviously, the ball isn’t a regulation NFL ball, but it’s still a helluva chuck. Advertisement Odell Beckham may be a little flaky, but he might be the best all around athlete currently walking the planet. Aside from his potentially hall of fame football skill, he’s hit batting practice home runs and more than competent skill on the soccer pitch with legit pros. This is like an old Powerade commercial.
News | CT Angiography (CTA) | August 06, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Improves Heart Attack Risk Assessment When used with a common heart scan, machine learning, a type of artificial intelligence (AI), does better than… read more A study examining trends in X-ray computed tomography (CT) use in children in the United States has found that reducing unnecessary scans and lowering the doses for the highest-dose scans could lower the overall lifetime risk of future imaging-related cancers by 62 percent. The research by a UC Davis Health System scientist was published in JAMA Pediatrics. It is accompanied by a journal editorial. The 4 million CT scans of the most commonly imaged organs conducted in children each year could result in approximately 4,870 future cancers, the study found. Reducing the highest 25 percent of radiation doses could prevent 2,090 — or 43 percent — of these future cancers. By also eliminating unnecessary imaging, 3,020 — or 62 percent — of cancers could be prevented, said Diana Miglioretti, lead study author and Dean’s Professor in Biostatistics in the Department of Public Health Sciences at UC Davis Health System. “There are potential harms from CT, meaning that there is a cancer risk, albeit very small in individual children, so it’s important to reduce this risk in two ways,” said Miglioretti, who is a member of the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center. “The first is to only do a CT when it’s medically necessary, and use alternative imaging when possible. The second is to dose CT appropriately for children.” Computed tomography is a procedure used to generate cross-sectional images of the body in diagnostic and therapeutic settings. It frequently is used in young children who may have experienced trauma, for example. Miglioretti noted its use has increased dramatically because the technology is effective and offers greater convenience than other imaging methods that do not involve ionizing radiation, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which requires that a child remain still in a scanner for an extended period of time. Ultrasound imaging can be time consuming. Radiation doses delivered by CT are 100 to 500 times higher than for conventional radiography, Miglioretti said. The retrospective study was conducted in diverse male and female children under 15 who were enrolled in seven integrated health-care systems: Group Health Cooperative in Washington; Kaiser Permanente in Colorado, Georgia, Hawaii, and the Northwest; and Marshfield Clinic in Wisconsin; as well as Henry Ford Health Systems in Michigan. Miglioretti conducted the research while employed at Group Health Cooperative, where she maintains a joint appointment. The researchers examined CT utilization data from six of the health-care systems between 1996 and 2010. Radiation dosage and estimated cancer risk were calculated by examining 744 random CTs of the head, abdomen/pelvis, chest and spine conducted from 2001 through 2011 at five of the health systems. The researchers said exams from these regions of the body account for more than 95 percent of all CT scans. Estimated lifetime attributable risks of cancers were calculated using the Biological Effects of Ionizing Radiation (BEIR) VII report for breast, colon, liver, lung, ovarian, prostate, stomach, thyroid, bladder, and uterine cancers and leukemia, and using models developed with similar methods for oral, esophageal, rectal, pancreatic, kidney and brain cancers, which account for as much as 85 percent of all U.S. cancer incidence. The study found that CT use increased between 1996 and 2005. Among children under 5, CT use doubled from 11 in 1,000 in 1996 to 20 in 1,000 in 2005-2007, then decreased to 15.8 in 1,000 in 2010. Among children 5 to 14, CT use almost tripled, from 10.5 in 1,000 in 1996 to a peak of 27 in 1,000 in 2005 before decreasing to 23.9 in 1,000 in 2010. The researchers also found that patient radiation doses were highly variable for exams of the same anatomic region. The risk of radiation-induced leukemia and brain cancers are highest for head CT, the most commonly performed CT in children. While the effective dose for head CT is relatively low, the brain and red bone marrow doses are relatively high for young children, resulting in the greatest risk of brain cancer and leukemia for imaged organs. The risk of radiation-induced solid cancer is highest for CTs of the abdomen and pelvis, which also had the most dramatic increase in use, especially among older children. Breast, thyroid and lung cancers and leukemia account for 68 percent of projected cancers in exposed girls; brain, lung and colon cancer and leukemia account for 51 percent of future cancers in boys. Miglioretti explained that children’s organs are at an increased risk of cancer from CT scans because children still are growing and their cells are dividing rapidly. In addition, lifetime risk of cancer is greater among children because they are at the beginning of their lives — they have longer to live. She noted that physicians can reduce dosage amounts using a number of different strategies, including reducing scan length by focusing solely on the ‘zone of interest’ — the region requiring imaging. For example, when the zone of interest is the abdomen, physicians should avoid also scanning the pelvis. She said dosage guidelines for imaging pediatric patients should be followed closely. The Image Gently campaign, an initiative of the Alliance for Radiation Safety in Pediatric Imaging that encompasses the Society for Pediatric Radiology, American Association of Physicists in Medicine, American College of Radiology and American Association of Radiologic Technicians, aims to change practice by increasing awareness of opportunities to promote radiation protection in medical imaging of children. “A smaller person needs a lower dose to come out of the machine to create an image of adequate quality for making a clinical diagnosis,” Miglioretti said. The research was supported by grant # U19CA79689 from the National Cancer Institute Cancer Research Network Across Health Care Systems; grant #R21CA131698 from the National Cancer Institute; and grant #K24CA125036.

Image courtesy of Matthew Sherwood, Ph.D.January 11, 2018 — Researchers using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) have found that neurofeedback training has the potential to reduce the severity of tinnitus or even eliminate it, according to a study presented at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Nov. 26-Dec. 1 in Chicago.Tinnitus is the perception of noise, often ringing, in the ear. The condition is very common, affecting approximately one in five people. As sufferers start to focus on it more, they become more frustrated and anxious, which in turn makes the noise seem worse. The primary auditory cortex, the part of the brain where auditory input is processed, has been implicated in tinnitus-related distress.For the study, researchers looked at a novel potential way to treat tinnitus by having people use neurofeedback training to turn their focus away from the sounds in their ears. Neurofeedback is a way of training the brain by allowing an individual to view some type of external indicator of brain activity and attempt to exert control over it.”The idea is that in people with tinnitus there is an over-attention drawn to the auditory cortex, making it more active than in a healthy person,” said Matthew S. Sherwood, Ph.D., research engineer and adjunct faculty in the Department of Biomedical, Industrial and Human Factors Engineering at Wright State University in Fairborn, Ohio. “Our hope is that tinnitus sufferers could use neurofeedback to divert attention away from their tinnitus and possibly make it go away.”To determine the potential efficacy of this approach, the researchers had 18 healthy volunteers with normal hearing undergo five fMRI-neurofeedback training sessions. Study participants were given earplugs through which white noise could be introduced for periods of time. The earplugs also served to block out the scanner noise.To obtain fMRI results, the researchers used single-shot echoplanar imaging, an MRI technique that is sensitive to blood oxygen levels, providing an indirect measure of brain activity.”We started with alternating periods of sound and no sound in order to create a map of the brain and find areas that produced the highest activity during the sound phase,” Sherwood said. “Then we selected the voxels that were heavily activated when sound was being played.”The participants then participated in the fMRI-neurofeedback training phase while inside the MRI scanner. They received white noise through their earplugs and were able to view the activity in their primary auditory cortex as a bar on a screen. Each fMRI-neurofeedback training run contained eight blocks separated into a 30-second “relax” period followed by a 30-second “lower” period. Participants were instructed to watch the bar during the relax period and actively attempt to lower it by decreasing primary auditory cortex activity during the lower phase.The researchers gave the participants techniques to help them do this, such as trying to divert attention from sound to other sensations like touch and sight.”Many focused on breathing because it gave them a feeling of control,” Sherwood said. “By diverting their attention away from sound, the participants’ auditory cortex activity went down, and the signal we were measuring also went down.”A control group of nine individuals were provided sham neurofeedback — they performed the same tasks as the other group, but the feedback came not from them but from a random participant. By performing the exact same procedures with both groups using either real or sham neurofeedback, the researchers were able to distinguish the effect of real neurofeedback on control of the primary auditory cortex.The study represents the first time fMRI-neurofeedback training has been applied to demonstrate that there is a significant relationship between control of the primary auditory cortex and attentional processes. This is important to therapeutic development, Sherwood said, as the neural mechanisms of tinnitus are unknown but likely related to attention.The results represent a promising avenue of research that could lead to improvements in other areas of health like pain management, according to Sherwood.”Ultimately, we’d like take what we learned from MRI and develop a neurofeedback program that doesn’t require MRI to use, such as an app or home-based therapy that could apply to tinnitus and other conditions,” he said.Co-authors are Emily E.
