New scientist profile: Dr. Nicola Schieda aims to improve imaging diagnosis of prostate, kidney cancers
October 5, 2022 - Radiologist Dr. Nicola Schieda works on algorithms to improve the non-invasive diagnosis of kidney and prostate cancers using MRI and CT scans.
Researchers at The Ottawa Hospital awarded 18 CIHR grants worth more than $11 million
February 5, 2022 - These projects will advance science and improve health in areas such as tuberculosis, blood disease, prostate cancer, heart disease, muscle repair, sleep apnea, brain cancer, medical imaging, virtual care, prehab, intellectual disability, sarcoma, CA
Bone-modulating drugs can be given less often during cancer treatment, reducing side-effects and saving time and money
November 28, 2020 - When cancer spreads to the bones, it can cause pain, reduce mobility and increase the risk of fractures. Bone modulating drugs can help, but a new study suggests that to maximize the value of these drugs, it may be better to give them less often.
