Study Shows Long-Term Alcohol Abuse Causes Brain Injuries
Study Shows Long-Term Alcohol Abuse Causes Brain Injuries. A recent study has shown that long-term alcohol abuse can severely damage the outer lining of the brain. The injured layer is the cerebral cortex and is involved in all processes of higher level reasoning and in the processing of emotions. The researchers used advanced nuclear magnetic resonance imaging to evaluate the brain of 65 adults. About half were alcoholics who had stopped drinking. The rest had never been alcoholics.
Diagnostic Imaging Services shares a six minute video that thoroughly explains breast ultrasound. The primary use of breast ultrasound today is to help diagnose breast abnormalities detected by a physician during a physical exam (such as a lump or bloody or spontaneous clear nipple discharge) and to characterize potential abnormalities seen on mammography or breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
