Case against lawyer illogical, says defence

first_imgThe Central Bureau of Investigation’s arrest of advocate Sanjeev Punalekar, counsel for the fringe right-wing outfit Sanatan Sanstha, in connection with the 2013 murder of rationalist Dr. Narendra Dabholkar was “illogical”, his lawyers argued on Tuesday.A special court was hearing the bail applications of Mr. Punalekar and his aide, Sanathan Sanstha member Vikram Bhave, who were arrested by the CBI on May 26.Mr. Punalekar and Mr. Bhave have been alleged to have participated in the conspiracy to murder Dr. Dabholkar, especially in destruction of evidence and in aiding and abetting Sachin Andure and Sharad Kalaskar — named by the CBI as the assailants.Arguing for bail, defence counsel, Advocate Virendra Ichalkaranjikar, said it made no sense to name his client in 2018 as part of a conspiracy for a murder that occurred in 2013.“The CBI says that advocate Punalekar had allegedly advised Kalaskar [the shooter] on destroy the murder weapon in July 2018. But if Dr. Dabholkar’s murder took place in 2013, then logically, any conspiracy must have been hatched prior to the crime, i.e. in 2013. So, how can the agency implicate advocate Punalekar for ‘conspiracy’ in 2018?” he submitted.He further pointed out the anomalies in terms of the murder weapon and the alleged assailants in the two charge sheets filed by the CBI in the case, first in June 2016 and the second supplementary charge sheet in February 2019.“In the first indictment, the CBI had named Sarang Akolkar and Vinay Pawar [absconding Sanstha activists] as the two shooters. Then, in 2019, it named Sachin Andure and Sharad Kalaskar without providing any logical reason as to this change,” he added.Advocate Dharmraj Chandel, another defence counsel said the agency could not post-date Mr. Punalekar’s role in the crime.“In this event, section 120 B [criminal conspiracy] and 302 [murder] of the Indian Penal Code [IPC] cannot be invoked against the accused. And if these cannot be invoked, then the UAPA, invoked against advocate Punalekar, too, is not tenable,” he said.Mr. Chandel further said that even if the CBI’s allegations were taken at face value, then the role assigned to advocate Punalekar – section 201[causing disappearance of evidence] of the IPC – was a bailable offence.Additional sessions judge R.M. Pande posted the next hearing on the bail pleas on June 17.On June 4, the court had remanded both accused to judicial custody.In September last year, seeking an extension of Mr. Kalaskar’s custody, the CBI had further disclosed to the court that in July 2018, the accused had allegedly dismantled four country-made pistols and thrown the firearms in the creeks of Greater Mumbai and Thane, while suggesting that one of the firearms could be the murder weapon used to kill Dr. Dabholkar.In his statement to the CBI last year, Mr. Kalaskar had allegedly said that Mr. Punalekar, known for his defamatory statements against Dr. Dabholkar, had asked him to destroy the weapons.According to the CBI, Mr. Kalaskar had further revealed that it was Thane-based Mr. Bhave who had allegedly planned the reconnaissance, pointed out Dr. Dabholkar to the assailants and even planned the getaway route for the shooters after the crime.Besides the arrests of Mr. Andure, Mr. Kalaskar and Dr. Virendra Tawde — said to be the alleged mastermind of the murders of Dr. Dabholkar and veteran Communist leader Govind Pansare — the CBI has arrested Amol Kale, Amit Digvekar and Rajesh Bangera in connection with the conspiracy to kill the two rationalist-thinkers.last_img read more

(RPTNG AFTER MAKING CORRECTION IN PARA TWO)

first_imgMohun Bagan say wont submit ISL bid document Kolkata, May 24 (PTI) Mohun Bagan today said that they would not submit the bid document unless their three demands are met in order to be inducted into the Indian Super League. The former I-League champions collected the Invitation To Bid document on the last day and tomorrow is the deadline to submit it. “The Indian constitution has been amended many times after its formation, and similarly here, the dates for a private organisation can also be changed,” Mohun Bagan general secretary Anjan Mitra said, taking a dig at Football Sports Development Limited, a subsidiary of IMG-Reliance that runs the ISL. “We did not want to give any scope to IMG-R who cannot deny that we have not bought the documents. The date of submission of the bid documents is not a factor to us,” Mitra said after their executive committee meeting. East Bengal are expected to follow suit as the Maidan heavyweights were bolstered by the backing of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. “We are extremely grateful to the chief minister. We have already sent her a letter to show our gratitude,” Mitra said as Mamata had asked them to not bow down under pressure. The two clubs main demand is the waiver of franchise fee of Rs 15 crore. “Apart from this we also need the money of the central pool and would like to play the tournament in Kolkata. These three demands have been brought up in our executive meeting today and has been agreed by all the officials of the club.” Throwing an open challenge to the ISL organisers, finance secretary Debasish Dutta said: “The revolt has already started and would spread all over Bengal. We would like to see how well the tournament progresses if the two most popular teams of the state, Mohun Bagan and East Bengal, are not allowed to participate.” PTI TAP AH AHadvertisementlast_img read more

Apple may announce an iPhone with LCD display, metal case in 2018

first_imgApple unveiled this year’s iPhones, aka iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X which with no doubt gained wide popularity. It seems, the Cupertino major doesn’t wish to waste any time and has already started working on the next year’s iPhones. Reports about the upcoming iPhones have already started surfacing the web suggesting that Apple may — yet again– enveil three iPhones next year — one of which will reportedly be the successor of the iPhone X — and may be called iPhone X Plus. Now a new report reveals that out of the three iPhones next year — one will come with an LCD display onboard.Apple hasn’t confirmed any details about these next-gen iPhones. However, reports, rumours, and renders have already started going viral on the internet. A new report coming from industry insiders in Japan reveal that one iPhone — to be announced next year — will come with an LCD display, while the other two iPhone may boast iPhone X-like OLED displays.All iPhones launched earlier – including this year’s iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus come with LCD displays — but considering iPhone X is a special phone — Apple partnered with Samsung to use an OLED display for the phone. The scenario could be the exact same next year as well — as a new report suggests that out of three — one iPhone may come with an LCD display while the other two may feature OLED displays.Also Read: Apple working on in-house power management chipsets for future iPhones: ReportadvertisementIf that’s really the case, and the report is accurate — this comes in as a good news for Sharp and Japan Display, two of the main LCD manufacturers in the market. Both Sharp and Japan Display’s shares reportedly dropped massively after the iPhone X came out with an OLED screen, supplied by Samsung.This report comes in from Nikkei Asian Review. Alongside the display details, the report further confirm that the LCD iPhone will come with 6.1-inch screen, while the other two OLED iPhones will come with 6.3-inch and 5.8-inch display respectively. “The 6.1-inch LCD model will probably sport a metal back [like older iPhones] available in several colors,” the report notes.Meanwhile, Apple is reportedly developing a new power management chip that it will use in the future iPhone models to give users more and better battery life. This new chip, designed in-house, will be ready for the use in the iPhone in the next two years. This in-house chips will supposedly be “the most advanced in the industry,” paving way for future iPhone models to have a better performance and battery life balance.last_img read more

Flags Lowered at Province House for Corporal Stannix

first_imgFlags at the legislature are lowered to half mast out of respect for Cpl. Christopher Paul Stannix, a reserve member of the Halifax-based Princess Louise Fusiliers. Cpl.

MP claims govt bias on FYROM

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram In a speech made this week in federal parliament, Perth MP Luke Simpkins accused successive Australian governments of taking a “biased” position in relation to the renaming of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, and moreover, the Greek government – supported by Australia’s stance – of seeking “instability” in the Balkans.“Australians of Greek heritage have bigger issues in their lives than [the naming issue]” Luke Simpkins MPAlluding to Australia’s long-held position on the FYROM naming issue, Mr Simpkins told the House of Representatives during an adjournment debate that “the failure of successive federal governments to call the Republic of Macedonia by its constitutional name” was because both sides of politics were fearful that a decision in favour of Skopje would “galvanise the Australian Greek community into a block vote against whoever makes this change.”Mr Simpkins went on to suggest that Australia’s position “to stand with a very small group of nations [who] remain committed to the UN-sponsored process that aims to achieve a mutually accepted agreement over the name issue” was “a smokescreen that is good for hiding behind for a perceived domestic political advantage”.While the Liberal MP’s support for Skopje’s position has been widely known and reported on in recent years, his latest appeal for the Abbott Government to alter its policy in regard to the naming issue was marked by offering his personal insights into Greek Australians.“Australians of Greek heritage have bigger issues in their lives than [the naming issue] and they vote like any other Australians on issues that really affect them, such as the economy and opportunities for them and their families,” he said, before adding that there were “a handful of Australians of Greek heritage who do contact members of parliament” but that not enough Greek Australian voters would vote only according to the issue. In a statement that is likely to enrage many in the Greek Australian community, Mr Simpkins said it was “tragic that literally a handful of nationalists can exert such power as to control the foreign policy of this nation.”“Those of Greek heritage are pretty much like every other ethnic community…they are not locked into some false and paranoiac belief that Australia officially uttering the words ‘Republic of Macedonia’ will somehow lose territory of the Hellenic Republic. “Mr Simpkins said that following Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s reported declaration last year that Skopje’s request to the bilateral name change was “fair enough”, Australia should now “do the right thing and recognise the Republic of Macedonia by its constitutional name.”The MP added that the Australian Government – by being “unwilling to seek progress” on the naming issue – was responsible for hurting FYROM’s economy.Unsurprisingly, reaction to the Perth MP’s latest comments on the matter has been immediate and robust.Professor Anastasios Tamis, President of the Australian Institute for Macedonian Studies, described Mr Simpkins’ statements as “superficial and provocative” and that the name issue “has nothing to do with politics and diplomatic recognitions; it is an anthropological and ethnographic one.” “The Greeks as a nation – both within Greece and the five million of the Hellenic diaspora – will never compromise their historical and cultural rights as Macedonian Hellenes – hence the name of Macedonia will always remain well rooted within their history…” he told Neos Kosmos.Professor Tamis added: “The entire population of 550,000 Australian Hellenes are committed devotees of the Macedonian Hellenic legacies, and will never compromise their patriotism to offer to another ethnicity – for unilateral usage, a name which is well-related to their national identity and attested with their history and culture over the last 3,000 years.”“To claim that a small group of Greek ‘nationalists’ are only keen and sensitive on the issue of ‘Macedonia’ is absurd and fallacious”.last_img read more

Watch Thanos Finally Wipes Out The Simpsons

first_img Finally, a ‘Simpsons’ Esports EpisodeTop Thanksgiving TV Episodes to Stream Right Now Stay on target A few years ago I woke up angry that The Simpsons was still on the air. It’s downright criminal that a cartoon that spent a decade being absolutely perfect then spent the next two decades being a shell of itself. The fact that they were even ready to replace one of the (still-living) iconic voice actors is almost personally insulting. And let’s not get into the whole Apu problem.That’s why I found it so cathartic to watch Thanos, fresh off of wiping out half of the population in Avengers: Infinity War and preparing for Avengers: Endgame, turn his sociopathic sights to my favorite but played-out yellow cartoon family (all except baby Maggie and her pacifier Infinity Stone of course). See for yourself.This Thanos couch gag comes from “The Girl on The Bus,” the latest episode in the 30th(!) season of the show. That episode also references a beloved Simpsons GIF (Homer sinking into the bushes) from an older and better episode. And honestly, even wiping out half of all Simpsons episodes would still leave you with about five years worth of fat before reaching perfect balance. The entire Marvel Cinematic Universe has happened within the span of The Simpsons being bad. Ay caramba, I don’t feel so good!Besides, as entertaining as this couch gag is, it’s just a trendy and slightly late reference. Gimmicky couch gags like this are the only thing that get people to pay attention to modern Simpsons episodes anyway. Because it’s not like people are watching the episodes. You might remember this Simpsons/Adventure Time crossover but you definitely don’t remember what happened next.For more on The Simpsons, we’ve got plenty of content that’s frankly way better than watching the show. Check out how the Internet and Twitter have kept The Simpsons weird and good. Watch this Metal Gear Solid-themed Steamed Hams spoof or listen to our own Steamed Hams Thriller cover. Remember the nightmare that is this live-action Futurama fan film. And find out what we thought about Simpsons-creator Matt Groening’s new (and not great) Netflix cartoon Disenchantment.Or just look at this picture.center_img View as: One Page Slides1/241. Bart With MusclesMost of the characters on The Simpsons have the same undifferentiated yellow, rubbery body, but sure Bart could probably get swole if he worked at it. Special mention to the confused, slightly horny looking Sideshow Bob in the background.2. CGI SimpsonsRemember that one episode where Homer went into the computer-generated 3D world? This is the Azerbaijani bootleg of that.3. Linkin Park DuelThe two major pairings the Internet loves for Bart Simpson are Sideshow Bob (what’s known as “Bort” in the fandom) and Fry from Futurama. Here’s a piece depicting the two suitors dueling to the strains of Linkin Park4. Black VeinsI can’t do this one justice, so I’m just going to quote from its DeviantArt description: “The scars in Lisa’s heart becomes infected with a plague of trauma. It Eats away at her heart and begins to move through her veins, infecting them with the blackened agony that plagued her heart. Her veins become blackened as her body and soul begins to degrade from the inside out. The infected blood attacks her wings and rots away her freedom. As the sickness reaches her mind, it distorts all of her senses, including her sense of judgement. She is forever changed by the horrid experiences she has had over the 8 years of her life. And no amount of therapy can treat this plague that has taken over our dear Lisa Simpson. (I can be quite dark sometimes, why do you think I CALL MYSELF “THE BLOODY ARTIST”?)”5. Black SimpsonsWe’ve all seen the bootleg shirts that re-imagine Bart Simpson as an African-American, but this piece does the same for the whole family. Lisa’s hair is sort of freaking me out, is that racist of me to say?6. Smithers DogThere’s a woman on DeviantArt who draws hundreds of pieces of art featuring Waylon Smithers as a dog. It’s kind of hard to wrap your brain around.7. Sexy LisaThe Internet has conflicting opinions about Lisa Simpson. Some people consider her a humorless scold who ruins episodes with petty moralizing, while others apparently think she’s a Bud Girl waiting to happen.8. BazingaBazinga indeed, my friends. What more can we even say?9. In The Pit Of DuffsnakeEven the most minor characters on The Simpsons have plenty of pervy art cranked out for them. Case in point: here’s a shot of reprobate Snake sucking greedily on an unmasked Duffman’s armpit. As you do.10. Moe DisguiseApu and Manjula have eight kids. I’m really having a hard time figuring out what Moe’s endgame is here. Please don’t tell me in the comments.11. Lisa FeetTime to make a detour into the fetishy side of Springfield, where very specific perverts work out their issues with, say, a giant Lisa Simpson threatening to crush her father with her feet.12. Sideshow Bob & Cecil FeetOr how about this shot of Sideshow Bob’s brother Cecil giving his massive four-toed foot a luxurious tongue bath?13. Marge Ticklish FeetWhy would you do this.14. Milhouse VoreVore – getting off on getting eaten – is also pretty big in the Simpsons fetish art world. Twins Sherri & Terri as well as, for some reason, Milhouse’s mom are big eaters.15. Van Houten FusionAnd then there’s the brave soul with a pack of colored pencils and a dream – to discover what it would look like if both of Milhouse’s parents were fused into one organism.16. Lunch Lady Doris FacesittingCan you imagine coming to a point in your life where you sit down and say “OK, time to draw a multi-panel cartoon about the lunch lady sitting on Bart’s face so hard it flattens?” Dark days, my friends.17. Bart The MurdererThere’s always been an undercurrent of barely-repressed violence in the Simpson home, so it’s not surprising that many artists choose to depict the fatal end result of that climate.18. Lisa The GluttonEver since the episode where an adult Bart washes himself with a rag on a stick, fan artists have been obsessed with the concept of grotesquely overweight Simpsons.19. Lisa Loves SlendermanIt’s actually terrifyingly feasible that Lisa Simpson would fall in love with creepypasta antagonist Slenderman. There are only so many ideas for shows, after all.20. AbartionYes, this masterwork is called “Abartion.” Some things defy description.21. Pregnant MaggieAlternate future timelines for the show are popular in the fan world, such as this one where Maggie appears to be a pregnant toddler who lost her arm in some sort of industrial accident.22. Homer FeetAh crap, we have a containment breach in the foot fetish area. Get your hazmat suits on, this one’s a dripper.23. Saiyan Sponge HomerWhy wouldn’t there be a Simpsons / Spongebob / Dragonball crossover? There’s literally no reason not to at this point.24. Homer Subject To Marge’s Experiments 2This one is called “Homer Subject To Marge’s Experiments 2.” I didn’t include “Homer Subject To Marge’s Experiments 1” because the artist drew his penis in it.

And his oratory skills were on full display at a San Diego shipyard: “My philosophy is very simple,” he said.“It’s in keeping with the dream of America, if you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, you have a moral obligation to stand up, say something speak up and speak out. We’re one people, one family, not just American family, but world family.”When not in front of the camera, the Oscar-nominated and Emmy-Award winning Woodard has been a tireless advocate for human rights. So it was only appropriate that she be the ship’s sponsor.

Perry, Sesame Workshop’s Vice President and Publisher, North America Media Products. “We are excited to work with Arts Music to take Sesame Street Records into the future with new and classic songs, which will help kids learn and families wiggle and giggle for years to come.”Arts Music is WMG’s new division dedicated to underserved genres including Broadway, classical, jazz and children’s music. “I watched the first episode, owned their first album, shared this music with my kids,” said Arts Music President Kevin Gore. “I can’t think of a better brand or mission as our foundation in this space.”This will be the first time in over 20 years that Sesame Street songs have received a consistent schedule of new releases. Arts Music Vice President Product Development, Creative & Operations Andrea Craig said, “They’re songs about letters and numbers, and so much more: friendship, community, joy, and heart.” For today’s youngest generation the revitalized label will inspire new ways to learn and share online, with their parents’ help of course. The results are likely to become unforgettable.Muppets creator and puppeteer Jim Henson received his first nomination at the 13th GRAMMY Awards when “Rubber Duckie” was nominated for Best Recording For Children. He had a total of 23 nominations and 5 wins, culminating at the 29th GRAMMY Awards when “The Alphabet” won in the same category.We Say Goodbye To The Original Big Bird, Caroll SpinneyRead morelast_img read more

Haines ski manufacturer lands its own storefront

first_imgA small business in Haines has taken a big step forward by opening a shop and storefront in Dalton City. Fairweather Ski Works moved into the Haines Brewing Company’s old location in late October. The move happened about a year after the company won the Southeast entrepreneurial competition Path to Prosperity.Download AudioGraham Kraft and Lindsay Johnson in their new Fairweather Ski Works location. (Emily Files/KHNS)It still says ‘Brewery’ on the outside, but on the inside there isn’t beer brewing, but skis being pressed. Graham Kraft and Lindsay Johnson are pressing paper birch wood, fiberglass, epoxy resin and other materials into skis.“It’s exciting,” said Johnson. “You want to see how it turns out, if it looks different than how it went in there.”Johnson and Kraft are the co-owners and craftsmen of Fairweather Ski Works. The skis are handmade out of local birch and Sitka Spruce trees and adorned with wood veneers and Alaskan artwork.Kraft started the business a couple years ago with Ian Seward. He says he started making skis as a hobby about eight years ago.“Well at first it was just a miracle that they worked,” Kraft said. “To take it from the raw material to the ski, that’s pretty rewarding.”“And then you get to go to the places that you love the most and look down on the forest and the ocean and the vast wild, I think that’s what Graham likes more than anything,” Johnson adds. “That’s why he does this.”Making a business out of hand-crafted skis hasn’t been easy.“It’s been a roller coaster ride,” said Kraft. “Just the business side of things, mostly. The ski-building side of things, I’ve been doing that for a lot longer than I’ve been doing any kind of business.”Lindsay Johnson and Graham Kraft examine a newly pressed pair of skis. (Emily Files/KHNS)Fairweather Ski Works was selected as one of two winners for the 2014 Path to Prosperity competition. The contest for entrepreneurs in Southeast Alaska is sponsored by Haa Aani and the Nature Conservancy. The ski business along with the Haines distillery won the contest at the beginning of this year.“I think the biggest things that we got from them was the emotional support, in saying ‘we actually think this is a good idea,’” Kraft said. “And they’re business professionals and for them to have some kind of faith in us, a fair bit of faith, that’s pretty good.”They also got financial support – up to $40,000 in seed funding for consulting and technical assistance. Kraft and Johnson say they’re using that money for a range of things, including website improvements, marketing videos, travel to a trade show in Colorado, and consulting with an engineer.But one of the most exciting things that’s happened in the past year is this move.“It’s just a perfect spot for it,” Kraft said. “‘Cause it’s traditionally been a building where a lot of good stuff is made.”The Haines Brewery operated in this Dalton City shop at the fairgrounds for about 16 years. It moved to a new location on Main Street in September. Before this, the ski shop operated out Mud Bay. Kraft and Johnson hope an in-town location will boost business.“There really hasn’t been any point of stasis since this business started three years ago,” Johnson said. “But this feels like a big evolutionary leap to be in here and have a dedicated ski shop.”Other exciting things are happening. They recently got a few online orders from people they had never heard of before. Johnson calls it ‘a miracle.’The ski makers will continue to find their way through the business side of this. But they say what’s really fulfilling is not the marketing or the numbers, it’s this:“To be able to go skiing on something that’s made out of the place that you’re walking through,” Johnson said. “This wood looks pretty good on the snow.”Fairweather Ski Works will be open through the winter and on cruise ship days during the summer.last_img read more

Filmmakers publishers bridging the gap

first_imgTranslating literature into cinema is not new for the Hindi film industry. Now with the emergence of digital platforms and a shift in audience tastes, publishers and content providers are increasingly looking to chart a more streamlined roadmap to bring compelling narratives to screen. “This idea of adapting a book to a movie is becoming more commonplace as compared to five years ago,” Anish Chandy, who heads business development and sales at Juggernaut Books, told during an interview. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”Around five years ago, there was no demand…. So we were on a zero base. But now, there’s a significant demand, where people are getting in touch with us and asking what else is there,” said Chandy, who describes over-the-top (OTT) platforms Amazon Prime Video and Netflix as “rich uncles” who have given a boost to the word-to-screen format.Netflix has already commissioned “Sacred Games”, based on author Vikram Chandra’s book, and “Selection Day”, based on the book by author Aravind Adiga, for the Indian market. These apart, there are a string of books being made into films or web series. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveActor Sonam Kapoor, who has confirmed that she is featuring in a screen adaptation of Anuja Chauhan’s 2008 novel “The Zoya Factor”, said at the gala: “Books were my respite when I was growing up and then films became my profession. I think the marriage of both is very important, especially because for a consumer who can’t consume books as well, it’s easier to consume films.”Filmmaker Kanu Behl said: “Books seem to be disappearing off desks and the hard copy versions of books are going out of people’s minds. So in today’s time, it’s even more important that books are talked about.” While the filmmaking world has become more receptive to the idea of adapting from books, publishers and authors are trying to decode the ‘right pitch’ apart from looking for the red flags while dealing with content producers.Chandy says 20 per cent queries from content providers turn into deals, and according to him “that’s huge for now. We are hoping for it to increase on a rapid pace,” he said. Arpita Das of Yoda Press said: “The writers are back in the centre. The writer had been relinquished or sidelined for sometime, and I think the next step would be to look towards literature and the stories that it has because that’s a better source.”Smriti Kiran, Creative Director, Jio MAMI is trying to put in place a skeletal system that can help filmmakers, publishers and authors in recognizing the best content and in striking the right deals. Commenting on the same, she says, “This broken, sporadic relationship that the film industry and literature share in this country needs fixing. Cinema needs stories and literature has plenty to offer. We are trying to enable these two worlds to forge friendships, collaborations and find these untapped narratives.”last_img read more

first_imgApril 14, 2011 – Interim results from a randomized study on the impact of a SPECT imaging system on clinical management and diagnosis of adult patients who exhibit signs or symptoms of parkinsonian syndromes (PS) have been released. The study used GE Healthcare’s DaTscan system.The results, presented at the 2011 American Academy of Neurology Meeting, are an important step in documenting the value of the system as an adjunct diagnostic tool for use in differentiating between PS and disorders such as essential tremor (ET) that have similar symptoms. DaTscan was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in January 2011. It is a radiopharmaceutical imaging agent that works by binding to dopamine transporters (DaT) in the brain.This multi-center, open label, randomized clinical trial compared the management, diagnosis, confidence of diagnosis (CoD), and quality of life (QoL) at four, 12 weeks and 52 weeks after randomization to either undergo DaTscan SPECT imaging (N=1331 randomized; 119 dosed and scanned) or not (N=136). The full study will evaluate patients through one year from baseline. Interim results showed more patients in the DaTscan group had changes from baseline (pre-DaTscan) diagnosis and their physicians had a higher mean CoD compared with the control group at both four and 12 weeks post-randomization. Additionally, in patients with a management plan at baseline (N=113 DaTscan and 125 control), significantly more DaTscan patients had management changes 12 weeks after randomization (49 percent vs. 31 percent) compared to the control group (p=0.004). “Interim clinical results show that DaTscan can be useful in providing objective evidence for patients with diagnostic uncertainty,” said Frederick Weiland, M.D., Sutter Medical Group Diagnostic Medical Imaging co-director of nuclear medicine. “In addition, physicians of patients participating in the study had more confidence in their diagnosis and recommended treatment when they had a DaTscan image.”Fifty thousand to 60,000 new cases of Parkinson’s disease (PD), a form of PS, are diagnosed in the United States each year, but an accurate diagnosis can take up to six years. Many people mistakenly attribute the first symptoms of PD to the normal aging process, and many have misconceptions about diagnosis. Use of DaTscan imaging may enable appropriate management for adult patients who have signs or symptoms of PS, through timely, appropriate diagnosis. PS occurs when the brain does not get enough dopamine to perform certain functions. This affects the ability of the brain to control movement and other muscle functions.
