This shows that repeated CT scans provide little benefit beyond mental reassurance, the researchers suggested. Although the radiological evidence in addition to clinical stability obtained from repeat imaging that rules out possible secondary adjustments is an assuring element for the managing doctor and the patient, a common clinical practice cannot be predicated on this reassurance by itself, they wrote. In the absence of supporting data, we question the worthiness of routine follow-up imaging given the associated accumulative upsurge in risks and cost. The researchers figured in patients with minimal head injuries, neurological monitoring remains the simplest way to identify the need for further treatment. The results do not apply to cases of severe head injury, however.Block is a senior hospital advisor to the Center to Advance Palliative Treatment, and is also a consultant to the Emily Davie and Joseph S. Kornfeld Foundation. The goal of palliative care is usually to avoid and relieve suffering also to support the perfect quality of life for patients and their families, regardless of the state of the disease. The American Cancer Culture recognizes the severe shortage of researchers in this field, and the Society’s Extramural Analysis Department offers partnered with the National Palliative Care Research Center to stimulate study in palliative care by establishing a particular program to support innovative analysis in palliative treatment.
