Quotes

"Currently there is no diagnostic test for PD, so we rely on clinical findings" first author Charles H Adler, MD, PhD, from the Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders Center at the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona, told Medscape...
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Reducing the CT radiation dose does not negatively impact patient safety or biopsy diagnostic rates in PNB."
Dr Benita Tan, senior consultant at Department of General Surgery at Singapore General Hospital, said: "We choose surgery for patients when fibroadenomas are large or when they are symptomatic, meaning patients feel some discomfort."
