In a race against time Ridley Scott cuts out Kevin Spacey

first_imgNEW YORK, N.Y. – Matt Damon walked onto the set of “The Martian” one morning to find Ridley Scott speaking into multiple walkie-talkies and directing an army of camera operators.“He was shooting four cameras at a time. I was skeptical about it, and each frame is, like, a Ridley Scott frame — beautiful,” Damon recalled in 2015. “I said, ‘God, Ridley, each of those shots is perfect.’ He says, ‘They’ve been perfect for a long time!’”Scott’s madman feats of efficiency have long been legend. Now, the director is attempting what could be his greatest trick yet, and all of Hollywood is eagerly watching.Scott on Wednesday summarily decided to cut Kevin Spacey out of the already completed movie “All the Money in the World,” reshoot the actor’s many scenes using Christopher Plummer — the man Scott originally wanted for the role of oil tycoon J. Paul Getty — and still, somehow, make a release date just six weeks away.It is, to say the least, an unprecedented move that most filmmakers (and studios) wouldn’t even consider. With Spacey suddenly deemed toxic following a flood of sexual harassment and assault allegations, Scott — in one of the more audacious acts of damage control in recent memory — simply opted to be rid of him.It’s as if the maker of the epic “Exodus” took to heart the Bible’s advice: “And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off and cast it from thee.”Scott even caught the film’s distributor, Sony Pictures, by surprise. But once word got out Wednesday, the studio opted to support the plan. Saying no to Ridley is an unenviable task.“I’m good at pushing the pace and suddenly everyone is running,” the director, now 79, told the Guardian in 2007. “It’s very easy to do only 10 shots a day. On ‘American Gangster,’ we were doing 50 setups a day. We wouldn’t have got through it otherwise.”“I was always fast,” he added. “Now I’m really fast.”The new film is slated for release Dec. 22, and trailers highlighting Spacey’s role are already in theatres. Its premiere at the AFI Fest this month has been scuttled out of concern the scandal around Spacey would spoil the event.Can Scott pull it off? That was the question captivating both moviegoers and Hollywood.Scott has his work cut out for him. Spacey’s scenes were shot over eight days, in multiple locations and a period setting. The movie recounts Getty’s refusal to pay the ransom when his 16-year-old grandson was kidnapped in 1973. The boy’s mother (Michelle Williams) and Getty’s adviser (Mark Wahlberg) work to win his release.While Spacey donned extensive prosthetics for the role of the elderly Getty, that won’t be an issue for the 87-year-old Plummer. Wahlberg and Williams are set to participate in the reshoots.It’s unclear if some shots will be digitally manipulated to erase Spacey or if every shot with him in the frame will be restaged. Sony declined to comment on how the reshoots will be carried out. Advances in digital effects have made such image scrubbing increasingly easy for filmmakers, though they come with ethical questions of their own.“Apparently Spacey’s harassment was well known, yet he still got big acting gigs,” wrote Jeet Heer, an editor at the New Republic. “To edit him out kind of whitewashes complicity of Hollywood.”Films are generally considered finished only once they’re released, and tinkering often continues right up until a movie hits theatres. A World Trade Center scene was removed from the 2002 movie “Spider-Man” after the Sept. 11 attacks, even though the twin towers had been featured in a trailer for the film.But there are few examples in film history that would rival the recasting of a major role of a movie on the cusp of release. Endings have been flipped, scenes removed and lines redubbed, but most major casting changes happen, at the latest, early in production.Eric Stoltz was replaced by Michael J. Fox after shooting began on “Back to the Future,” and Paul Dano was a late addition to “There Will Be Blood” when the initial actor was judged a poor fit. Harvey Keitel was fired after two weeks of shooting “Apocalypse Now.”Late switching has more commonly happened in voice-over roles. In Spike Jonze’s “Her,” Scarlett Johansson replaced Samantha Morton during post-production as the computer operating system’s voice. Ben Whishaw took over for Colin Firth to give the lead voice in “Paddington” a younger sound.More often, post-production creativity becomes necessary because of a death, such as that of Paul Walker of “The Fast and the Furious” movies. When the British actor Oliver Reed died in 1999 during the making of Scott’s “Gladiator,” Scott filmed with a double and digitally mixed it with outtakes of Reed.The director has also made liberal use of “director’s cuts” and reshaped films like his “Blade Runner” and “Alien” years after the fact — sometimes crafting more beloved versions, sometimes not.___This story has been updated to correct the spelling of Ben Whishaw’s name.___Follow AP Film Writer Jake Coyle on Twitter at: http://twitter.com/jakecoyleAPlast_img read more

But today a new filmmaking diaspora is spreading across the globe to places like Vancouver, London and Wellington, New Zealand.Fueled by politicians doling out generous tax breaks, filmmaking talent is migrating to where the money is. The result is an incentives arms race that pits California against governments around the world and allows powerful studios —with hundreds of millions of dollars at their disposal— to cherry-pick the best deals.The most recent iteration of the phenomenon came earlier this month when James Cameron announced plans to shoot and produce the next three “Avatar” sequels largely in New Zealand. What Cameron gets out of the deal is a 25 per cent rebate on production costs, as long as his company spends at least $413 million on the three films.___Hollywood poised for best-ever box-office yearLOS ANGELES (AP) — Despite a string of summertime flops, Hollywood is expected to have a banner year at the domestic box office, coming in just shy of $11 billion, the largest annual take ever. But because of higher ticket prices, actual attendance at North American theatres remained flat after a decade of decline.With the current domestic box-office tally nearly 1 per cent ahead of last year at this time, 2013 could surpass 2012’s overall haul of $10.8 billion by more than $100 million, according to box-office tracker Rentrak.___Target: Customers’ encrypted PINs were stolenATLANTA (AP) — Target said Friday that debit-card PINs were among the financial information stolen from millions of customers who shopped at the retailer earlier this month.The company said the stolen personal identification numbers, which customers type into keypads to make secure transactions, were encrypted and that this strongly reduces risk to customers. In addition to the encrypted PINs, customer names, credit and debit card numbers, card expiration dates and the embedded code on the magnetic strip on back of the cards were stolen from about 40 million credit and debit cards used at Target stores between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15.Security experts say it’s the second-largest theft of card accounts in U.S. history, surpassed only by a scam that began in 2005 involving retailer TJX Cos.Gartner security analyst Avivah Litan said Friday that the PINs for the affected cards are vulnerable and people should change their codes since such data has been decrypted, or unlocked, before.___Predictions from market experts for 2014NEW YORK (AP) — It is an understatement to say stock market investors had a good year in 2013. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index soared 29 per cent, its best year since 1997. Including dividends, it gained 32 per cent.What lies ahead? The AP asked leading market analysts and investment managers where they see the Standard & Poor’s 500 index winding up by the end of 2014 and why.___GE study: No need to expand Hudson River cleanupALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — General Electric Co. said Friday a study requested by New York state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli shows no need for it to voluntarily expand dredging already underway in a portion of the upper Hudson River contaminated with PCBs.GE said the scientific and legal analysis shows wildlife in the area is healthy, and any concern about the company getting hit with future liabilities for environmental damage is speculative.DiNapoli had asked for the review in a shareholder resolution as trustee of the state pension system. He withdrew the resolution after Fairfield, Conn.-based GE agreed to the study earlier this year.Environmentalists have long been pressing for additional dredging of contaminated sections outside the current Superfund cleanup site north of Albany.___CEO of Hyundai’s North America operations resignsJohn Krafcik, the president and CEO of Hyundai Motor America, is stepping down next week after five years at the helm, the company announced Friday. He will be replaced by David Zuchowski, the current executive vice-president of sales who joined the company in February 2007.When Krafcik became CEO of American operations in 2008, the South Korean automaker’s cars were ugly and often broke down. During his tenure, he pushed through quality, style and fuel efficiency improvements to help drive up sales. Hyundai Sonata midsize cars and Elantra compacts became top sellers and multiple models garnered the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s Top Safety Pick designation.Hyundai had already started to change before Krafcik arrived, offering a 10-year, 100,000 mile warranty with its cars. But the transformation from joke to juggernaut accelerated under his watch. Krafcik didn’t just focus on the engine but how people used their cars as personal living spaces.___1.3 million losing unemployment benefits SaturdayWASHINGTON (AP) — More than 1 million Americans are bracing for a harrowing, post-Christmas jolt as extended federal unemployment benefits come to a sudden halt this weekend, with potentially significant implications for the recovering U.S. economy. A tense political battle likely looms when Congress reconvenes in the new, midterm election year.Nudging Congress along, a vacationing President Barack Obama called two senators proposing an extension to offer his support. From Hawaii, Obama pledged Friday to push Congress to move quickly next year to address the “urgent economic priority,” the White House said.For families dependent on cash assistance, the end of the federal government’s “emergency unemployment compensation” will mean some difficult belt-tightening as enrollees lose their average monthly stipend of $1,166.___GM to recall 1.5M cars in China to replace bracketBEIJING (AP) — General Motors Co. and its main Chinese partner will recall almost 1.5 million cars to replace a bracket that secures a fuel pump, China’s product quality agency said Friday.The agency said the recall affects 1.2 million Buick Excelles made from 2006 through part of 2012 and 250,000 Chevrolet Sails produced between April 2009 and October 2011 and some made last year.The bracket to be replaced might crack and in extreme cases cause a fuel leak, the Administration for Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine said in a statement.The recall is GM’s second this year in China. In May, the government announced a recall of 2,653 imported Cadillac SRX sport utility vehicles to adjust nuts on wheels that said might loosen due to torque.___By The Associated Press=The Dow Jones industrial average closed down 1.47 points, or 0.01 per cent, to 16,478.41.

Ohio State field hockey set to hit the road for opening Big

Senior forward Peanut Johnson (3) surveys the field during a game against St. Louis on Aug. 28. OSU won, 5-0.Credit: Kevin Stankiewicz / Asst. Sports EditorThe Ohio State field hockey team is set to hit the road this week for East Lansing, Michigan, to face off against Michigan State.The Buckeyes and Spartans are scheduled to step on the field on Friday at 3 p.m. in the Big Ten opener.After last Friday’s 3-2 home win against Ball State, OSU (3-2) is now on a two-game winning streak with an offense that has come on strong recently. However, OSU coach Anne Wilkinson said she is cautious about getting too confident heading into conference play.“Once you get the Big Ten, it’s a whole new ballgame, and they know that,” Wilkinson said.Following in the footsteps of last week’s recipient, sophomore goalie Liz Tamburro, senior forward Peanut Johnson was named Big Ten Player of the Week on Tuesday for her strong performance last week against Ball State. Johnson earned her team five points by scoring twice and adding two assists, which brought the Dayton, Ohio, native’s season total to 10 points.Johnson said she looks to the individual accolade as a welcome recognition, but she still sees the team as a support system and large factor in her triumph.“It’s such an honor,” Johnson said. “But it’s definitely a team effort in the end, and I’m just really grateful.”Johnson and her co-captain, senior back Emma Royce, said they see Friday’s first conference game as a chance for the Buckeyes to truly shine following their winning streak.Royce said that when going up against the Spartans, the team has to be in the right mindset above anything else.“The skills are all there, it’s a lot about mentality at this point,” Royce said. “We just know that Michigan State is a very passionate and aggressive team so we’re looking to win our individual matchups and 50-50 balls.”Wilkinson said she looks for Friday’s game to be an opportunity for the Buckeyes to work on locking down the ball.“Possession is really going to be key,” Wilkinson said. “Michigan has a style where they really like to break up your plays…because we’re a fast team, they like to break that up so we need to work on playing small but opening up also.”Michigan State will go into the game tied for sixth place in the Big Ten alongside Maryland after their loss to Columbia last Sunday, bringing them to 3-3 overall on the season.Last meetingLast season’s matchup between the Buckeyes and Spartans ended in overtime at 4-3, with Michigan State taking the victory on a goal by forward Abby Barker.Players to watchWhile Tamburro and Johnson hold the consecutive titles of Big Ten Player of the Week, sophomore forward Maddy Humphrey holds team leads for Buckeyes with 12 points (five goals, two assists). read more

That Atlantic salmon farm was on its last legs — and Washington

first_imgA wild Pacific salmon, left, next to an escaped farm-raised Atlantic salmon, right, on Aug. 22 at Home Port Seafoods in Bellingham. (Photo by Megan Farmer/ KUOW)More information is coming to light about the failure of a fish farm operation in Puget Sound that led to the escape of thousands of Atlantic salmon.Washington state officials knew at least six months ago that the salmon farm that collapsed last month was on its last legs.Corrosion and metal fatigue had weakened the floating steel structure.Listen nowEven so, they agreed to fill the damaged structure with a full load of 3.1 million pounds of Atlantic salmon in an area regularly swept by strong currents.The end result: approximately 162,000 fish from another ocean breaking out and spreading throughout Puget Sound and into Canadian waters. Some have swum up to 150 miles away, into the Pacific Ocean off the outer coast of Vancouver Island. Tribes and environmental groups fear the sudden influx of aquatic predators could mean trouble for the region’s already-beleaguered Pacific salmon.Cooke filed for a permit from the Washington Department of Natural Resources and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in February to replace and reposition the aging fish farm it had purchased from Icicle Seafoods a year before. In the application, Cooke describes the farm, one of three it owns off Cypress Island’s steep, rocky shores, about 60 miles north of Seattle:The existing steel net pen structure has been in service for approximately 16 years in the marine environment and is due for complete replacement. Steel net pen systems located in the marine environment are subject to the corrosive effects of salt water and to metal fatigue from the constant wave energy, storm events and the extreme forces that are exerted on them from tidal currents. The corrosion on the metal walkway grating and substructures is accelerating and some metal hinge joints show signs of excess wear. Repairing the rusted steel walkways and replacing fatigued metal components of the existing cage system structure in place is not cost effective or practical.At least seven different agencies, from county shoreline planners to the U.S. Army, regulate some aspect of salmon farms in Washington. Cooke’s application says the company had been in touch with officials at Skagit County Planning and Development Services, the state’s Natural Resources and Ecology departments and the Army Corps of Engineers in January.“Everybody’s looking at these facilities as they’re permitted and moved and upgraded,” Joe Smillie, spokesperson for the Department of Natural Resources, said.None of them kept Cooke from operating a fish farm, known to be structurally damaged, full to the gills.The waiting is the hardest part.Farmed salmon begin as eggs hatched in a freshwater hatchery. Later, tiny smolts, weighing about a quarter-pound each, are transferred to floating, 40-foot-deep saltwater pens where they grow for a year or more before being harvested.In March, two months after applying for its permit to replace its aged fish farm, Cooke applied for a water quality permit from the Washington Department of Ecology, seeking to raise up to 3.1 million pounds of salmon.“That stocking number would be very normal for that site,” Chuck Brown, Cooke Aquaculture spokesperson, said.By July, the Cypress Island salmon were approaching their full-grown weight of 10 to 12 pounds each when a fast tidal current surged down Bellingham Channel and into Cypress Island’s Deepwater Bay, where Cooke’s three farms are located.Currents of similar or greater speed had pulsed through Bellingham Channel all year long, according to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration data.What was different this summer was the extra million pounds the floating farm had put on since January for the current to push around.The Cypress Island fish farms, originally installed in the 1980s, were designed with the strong tidal currents of the Salish Sea in mind. The net-pen structure that collapsed in August had beefy anchoring systems: the floating grid of 10 pens was held in place by two dozen anchors weighing as much as three tons each and tethered by synthetic lines nearly as thick as the business end of a baseball bat.But those restraints weren’t up to the task on at least two occasions this summer as the fish held by the nets grew and grew. In July, with an estimated 2.8 million pounds of salmon crowded within the grid of heavy, square cages, the fish farm anchors slipped. The entire farm moved with the current.Brown said the company was able to quickly make repairs to the mooring system. No fish escaped.“Once we had that work done, we were pretty confident that the site was stable and that it would be fine for the next few months until we harvested that farm out,” Brown said.Instead, a month later, after the 305,000 salmon swimming inside put on more weight and were nearly ready for market, another strong current tore the aging pen apart.Smillie, the Department of Natural Resources spokesperson, said Cooke’s February application to replace the net pens – describing them as fatigued, corroded and near the end of their life — didn’t cause the department to rethink its approvals for this year’s operations.“In their application, they said they weren’t planning to replace these until after this year’s harvest,” Smillie said. “They asked us to relocate and replace these facilities and didn’t make it in time, obviously.”When asked if it was prudent, given what the state knew about the farm’s structural problems, to let Cooke load it to its full 3.1 million pound capacity, Smillie said: “That’s something we’re investigating with our sister agencies right now.”Brown said they know a lot more than they did when the incident happened, but “we had full confidence in the system.”When Cooke lost 20,000 Atlantic salmon from its farm off Newfoundland, Canada, in 2013, it blamed “high tide and unusually strong currents,” according to CBC News. The company gave the same explanation for its recent salmon spill into Puget Sound.Aquaculture oversight: broad, not deepThe Department of Natural Resources inspected the Cypress Island farm in September 2016. Smillie said DNR does fairly perfunctory inspections, checking on things like whether emergency response kits are well-stocked.“We don’t have a whole lot of structural engineers on staff to go out and inspect our lease facilities,” Smillie said.DNR’s 5,000 aquatic lease holders include everything from marinas to oyster farms. “We rely on them to make sure that their facility is in good shape and doesn’t fall apart,” Smillie said.Smillie said the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife inspects salmon farms, but not for structural integrity, just to make sure the fish are healthy.The U.S. Coast Guard inspects boats as well as floating and waterfront facilities that use hazardous materials, but not fish farms.“Fish are not considered hazardous,” Coast Guard Commander Darwin Jensen said.Brown, Cooke’s spokesperson, said the company has been evaluating and auditing all eight of its Washington fish farms since it bought them a year ago, with the goal of bringing them up to Cooke’s standards. The Cypress site that collapsed was top of the company’s list because of its poor condition as well as its orientation, sitting broadside to the main current.“It was definitely ready for replacement,” Brown said.Brown said the company’s other fish farms were not at risk of a similar disaster.“We certainly don’t feel that way,” Brown said.Brown could not provide details, such as the age or condition of other farms.“Our team here is so busy and focused on the recovery effort,” Brown said from Anacortes.The company is participating in the incident command structure set up by Gov. Jay Inslee on Aug. 26 to respond to the salmon spill on an emergency basis.Smillie said DNR has told Cooke it expects structural inspections of the company’s remaining fish farms, with DNR staff observing, “as soon as the situation at the failed Deepwater Bay structure is under control.”last_img read more

HUGE After India crush Bangladesh Virat Kohli identifies best OneDay player

first_imgVirat Kohli led Indian team became the second side to officially seal their spot in the semi-finals of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup after they defeated a spirited Bangladesh side by 28 runs in Birmingham. It was more or less a comprehensive performance by the Indian side and the skipper said that they had to work hard to get the Q sign in front of their names.”We had to work hard for the win but very happy that we saw ‘Q’ (Qualified) in front of the team name in the table now. Another game as an opportunity for us to do the same things we have done so far in the tournament, and I think that will keep us in the frame of mind heading towards the semi-final. And as I said, we are really really happy that we qualified for the semi-final with one more game to go,” Kohli said after the match.The skipper won the toss and elected to bat first on a used pitch and his openers vindicated this decision. Rohit Sharma continued on his rampant run and smacked his fourth ton of the World Cup. The skipper acknowledged the contribution and even proclaimed the opener to be the best One Day player in the world.’Rohit is the best ODI player’ Virat KohliGetty images”I have been watching it for years now, I have been saying it publicly, in my opinion, Rohit is the best One-day player. When he plays, we are heading towards a big score and really happy with the way he’s playing,” the skipper further added.Bangladesh have been a side in form and they gave a great indication of their batting as they never allowed India to breathe easy during the run chase. However, Hardik Pandya and then Jasprit Bumrah ensured there were no scares as they kept chipping away at the wickets. Kohli said Hardik always wants the ball as he thinks like a batsman and this helps him in making up his plans. Also, he praised Jasprit Bumrah for his relentless pressure. Indian sideTwitter/BCCI”Bumrah’s overs were always going to be crucial, you can bank on him. He’s the number 1 bowler at the moment and he can execute his plans,” Kohli said.India will now face Sri Lanka in their final group stage game.last_img read more

Sony wants exclusive games for PSN has 20 million to spend

first_imgGames that are exclusive to a platform used to be the norm. Back in the days of the Gamecube and PSOne it was a pretty common occurrence, but that soon changed when games got more expensive to develop and cross-platform engines got to a point where they made shipping a game to Xbox, PS2, then Xbox 360, PS3, and PC much simpler.Buy a PS3 or 360 and most games you pick up will exist on both systems, with a few exceptiuons such as God of War, Ratchet & Clank, or Yakuza on the PlayStation side. Sony now wants exclusivity to increase again, but it is targeting digital games this time round.In order to make a game exclusive to your platform, a publisher needs to make a developer an offer that outweighs the sales lost from shipping for other systems. That can come in the form of a multi-game deal, the promise of increased advertising on release, or a big cash incentive. Sony is going the cash route and has set aside $20 million to spend over the next 3 years securing PSN a number of exclusive titles.This is good news for developers who manage to get an exclusive publishing deal as they can be quite lucrative. For gamers it’s a double-edged sword. On the one hand you get a game that is tailored specifically to a single console’s capabilties, but then if you don’t own that console you will never get to play it.I’m going to remain positive on this one as it could see a few more developers pop up offering the same quality titles as Q Games’ PixelJunk series or Thatgamecompany’s Flower. But I am in that happy place of owning both a PS3 and 360. For those who only own a 360 this may be altogether bad news.Read more at PlayStation.Bloglast_img read more

3D Printer With Eyes And Brains Can Print New Products That Werent

first_img ENDS IN Search Close Inkbit, a start-up founded by researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, is granting industrial 3D printers new capabilities.The company is updating multimaterial inkjet 3D printer by pairing it with machine vision and machine learning technologies, essentialy endowing it with eyes and brains.This will enable industrial printers to be used to produce products that have never been printed before. Wow facts 1Share this videoCopyPausePlay00:00% Buffered0PreviousPausePlayNextLive00:00 / 00:00UnmuteMuteExit fullscreenFullscreenCopy video urlPlay / PauseMute / UnmuteReport a problemLanguageBackMox PlayerDefaultEnglishEspañolУкраїнськаРусскийA 3D Printer With Eyes And A Brain”Everyone knows the advantages of 3D printing are enormous. But most people are experiencing problems adopting it,” stated David Marini, co-founder and CEO of Inkbit, to MIT News. “Our machine is the first one that can learn the properties of a material and predict its behavior. I believe it will be transformative because it will enable anyone to go from an idea to a usable product extremely quickly.”Inkbit’s 3D printer is based on the machines that Marini and colleagues created back in 2015 at MIT. The group developed a relatively low-cost and precise 3D printer by leveraging machine vision. The project allowed the researchers to print a record of 10 materials at once.Matusik dramatically improved the “eyes” of Inkbit’s first 3D printer by using an optical coherence tomography scanner, a technology usually used by ophthalmologists. They built their own OCT scanner that they claim is 100 times faster than anything that is currently in the market.Inkbit claims that the machine vision and machine learning systems of their 3D printer can automatically correct any errors in real-time, opening it up for a larger range of materials that the company can use to print without the usual rollers and scrapers of other 3D printers.A 3D Printer That Can Do AnythingCurrently, Inkbit’s industrial 3D printer has 16 print heads that create multi-material parts and a print block large enough to produce hundreds of fist-sized items per year.The researchers reported that Johnson & Johnson is already on the process of acquiring a printer.However, Matusik and colleagues will continue to improve Inkbit’s 3D printer. Next year, they shared that a propriety system for mixing two materials before printing will be added to the printers.”Some of this is so far ahead of its time,” commented Matusik. “I think it will be really fascinating to see how people are going to use it for final products.” TAG 3D Printing, Inkbit, MIT, Machine learning, Machine Vision ⓒ 2018 TECHTIMES.com All rights reserved.

(Seno Medical) reported results of a study demonstrating that morphologic and functional opto-acoustic (OA/US) features provide a non-invasive approach to helping distinguish breast cancer molecular subtypes. The data were presented at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2018 annual meeting, Nov. 25-30 in Chicago, and the abstract was featured as one of three High Impact Clinical Trials selected for this special session.There are four distinct main molecular subtypes of breast cancer, which are defined based on the presence of hormone receptors (estrogen [ER] and progesterone [PR]) with or without human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) protein overexpression or extra copies of the HER2 gene, and elevation of the ki67 proliferation marker. The four subtypes are: Luminal A (LumA; ER+/HER2−negative, ki67<14%); HER-2 amplified or positive (HER2+; ER-negative, HER2+); and News | Neuro Imaging | August 16, 2019 ADHD Medication May Affect Brain Development in Children A drug used to treat attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) appears to affect development of the brain’s... read more Of 532 patients with available pathologic molecular subtype, 186 (35 percent) were LumA, 244 (45.9 percent) were LumB, 79 (14.8 percent) were TNBC and 23 (4.3 percent) were HER2+; Images of regions of interest (colored lines) in the white matter skeleton representation.

The mean RInt/Ext was significantly higher in TNBC (1.7, SD ± 0.7) compared with LumB (1.3, SD ±0.5) and LumA (1.2, SD ± 0.5) subtypes (p<0.001), but not significantly different from HER2 (1.5, SD ±0.6); and News | PACS | August 09, 2019 Lake Medical Imaging Selects Infinitt for Multi-site RIS/PACS Infinitt North America will be implementing Infinitt RIS (radiology information system)/PACS (picture archiving and... read more The data demonstrate that morphologic and functional OA/US features may provide a non-invasive approach to help distinguish breast cancer molecular subtypes. The study authors conclude that data from such subtype analyses could potentially facilitate clinical management decisions."The exciting finding in this study is OA/US imaging features may serve as imaging biomarkers that predict molecular phenotypes. This not only helps establish the diagnosis of breast cancer, but also distinguishes cancers with poor prognosis from those with good prognosis non-invasively – using no radiation, contrast or a need for biopsy," said Basak E. Dogan, M.D., University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, presenter at RSNA and the first author of the study. "This is an important step forward to non-invasively optimize treatment regimens in keeping with the unique molecular profile of each woman's cancer. Furthermore, it is a great opportunity to assess the cancer three dimensionally instead of making treatment decisions based on small biopsy samples.
