AIM's full body MRI scan is one hundred per cent free of ionizing radiation. Compare that to a CT scan which exposes the patient to radiation equivalent to 70 X-Rays. Yet, CT is still a common imaging modality in public hospitals. Children are particularly susceptible to ionizing radiation; in fact, childhood exposure to CT scans [...]

A new Canadian health study by the Fraser Institute sheds valuable light on the current state of our public healthcare system. And, according to this new research, the standard of care is nowhere near as efficient as it could be. The study, which compared 29 developed countries’ universal healthcare systems, found that although Canada is [...]

In something of a Catch-22, osteoarthritis patients are often instructed to exercise to alleviate some of their pain symptoms--but those same pain symptoms may prevent an exercise routine from being formed. Although many sufferers of osteoarthritis may wish to work out, the possibility of further injury is a daunting one. Recently, Canadian researchers tackled the [...]

Vancouver has become an international leader in cancer research! AIM's Whole Body Diffusion MRI detects cancer in its earliest stages, and the BC Cancer Agency is conducting developmental research on a blood test that should be able to detect early signals of cancer. The study will look at the blood of 1000 participants aged 55-70, all [...]

You're not hungry, you're thirsty. It's almost too easy: dieters everywhere have heard this advice for decades, but now it's been backed up by MRI science. The study, conducted by Wageningen University in the Netherlands, worked with 19 participants to collect the data. Done in three parts, the research looked at MRI scans of the stomach, [...]

To ride the elevator or climb the stairs may not seem like an important decision, but when it's a decision you make every day it could have lasting implications on not only your physical fitness, but your cognitive function as well. A new Canadian MRI study from researchers at Concordia University has found that younger-looking [...]
