first_img Share AP Photo/Evan VucciPresident Donald Trump talks with Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, left, and Gov. Greg Abbott, R-Texas, after arriving at Ellington Field Joint Reserve Base, Thursday, May 31, 2018, in Houston.President Donald Trump spent more than an hour Thursday offering private condolences to some of the families affected by Santa Fe school shooting, the latest spasm of mass violence in a year marred by assaults on the nation’s schools.While Trump was in Texas, his newly formed school safety commission met outside Washington, part of the president’s chosen solution to combat the rising tide of bloodshed after his brief flirtation with tougher gun laws went nowhere.A White House spokesman said Trump was “moved” by the May 18 shooting at Santa Fe High School, which left eight students and two substitute teachers dead. A student faces capital murder charges in the attack.“These events are very tragic, whenever they happen. And you know, the president wants to extend his condolences and talk about the issue of school safety,” spokesman Raj Shah told Fox News Channel.Trump, who at times has awkwardly embraced his role as the national comforter-in-chief, did not publicly share what he told the grieving families and local leaders during a meeting at a Coast Guard base outside Houston. Reporters were not permitted to witness the meeting, and the White House did not immediately identify the people with whom Trump met or what they discussed.“He’s the president of the United States, but he’s also a father. He’s also a husband, and he obviously understands what it’s like, you know, to love someone and then lose someone,” Shah said in the interview, adding that Trump approaches situations like these as a human being and a parent, not necessarily as a politician.“I think he just, you know, he talks to families, he listens and he wants to learn,” Shah said.Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, both Republicans, greeted Trump on the tarmac after he stepped off of Air Force One at a Houston military base. Abbott joined Trump for the short ride in the presidential limousine to a Coast Guard hangar where the meeting took place.Trump then headed to a fundraiser at a luxury hotel in downtown Houston, the first of his two big-dollar events across Texas on Thursday. A White House official did not immediately respond to requests for details about how much money was to be raised, and who was benefiting, from the fundraising events.After 17 teachers and students were killed during a February shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, Trump said he would work to improve school safety, but has not called for new gun control legislation. He created a commission to review ways to make schools safer and named Education Secretary Betsy DeVos to chair it. The panel on Thursday was making its first field trip, to a Baltimore-area elementary school.Trump briefly strayed from gun-rights dogma after the Parkland shooting, but quickly backpedaled. Abbott, a Republican and a staunch gun-rights supporter, has called for schools to have more armed personnel and said they should put greater focus on spotting student mental health problems. He’s proposed a few small restrictions on guns since the shooting.Classes at Santa Fe High School resumed Tuesday for the first time since the shooting. Investigators say student Dimitrios Pagourtzis, 17, carried out the attack with a shotgun and pistol that belonged to his father.As the Parkland students became vocal advocates for gun control, embracing their public positions as few school survivors had before, Trump quickly became a rallying cry for their anger. In Trump’s visit to Florida in the wake of the shooting, aides kept him clear of the school, which could have been the site of protests, and he instead met with a few victims at a local hospital and paid tribute to first responders at the nearby sheriff’s office.To this point, there has not been a similar outcry for restrictions on firearms from the students and survivors in deep-red Texas.Displaying empathy does not often come naturally to Trump, who has been criticized for appearing unfeeling in times of tragedy, including when he attacked a mayor in Puerto Rico in the aftermath of a deadly hurricane and fought with a Gold Star military family.But there have been moments when Trump has displayed a softer side. On Wednesday, he reciprocated a hug from a 8-year-old boy with muscular dystrophy and attended a White House event marking legislation to give patients the right to try experimental treatmentsThat same day, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders grew emotional when, during the daily press briefing, she was asked by a young student journalist about what steps the administration was taking to safeguard schools.Before Thursday, Trump was most recently in the Lone Star State on May 4, when he attended the annual NRA convention and pledged that the attendees’ Second Amendment rights “will never ever be under siege as long as I am your president.”He also touted the administration’s “aggressive strategy on community safety” and mentioned armed guards, armed teachers, mental health and metal detectors, but did not mention assault rifles likes the one used in Parkland.last_img

Featured in the GEMINI LXL are workflow improvements and the availability of a couch motion enabler. Streamlined workflow is also included for cardiac scanning, from easier cardiac gating setup and data storage to a cardiac alignment application which simplifies the process of cardiac re-alignment.The GEMINI LXL features new crystal and detector technology and is designed with enhanced sensitivity and higher image quality through reconstruction and image processing. It also enables improved accuracy with patient motion management due to its 4D PET/CT imaging capabilities.Modern crystals and detector technology used for the GEMINI LXL are engineered to improve image quality and lead to a faster output of scans. Not only can it be used for imaging in the oncology field but it can also be adjusted with various cardiac applications such as Emory Cardiac Toolbox and Cedars AutoQuant.High definition PET reconstruction and 4D PET/CT imaging, which is optional, are included to enhance the image quality, reconstruction and accuracy with patient motion management.The GEMINI LXL PET / CT scanner will be released in the second quarter of 2010.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | March 11, 2010 New PET/CT Targets Radiology, Oncology Needs Technology | PET-CT | January 23, 2019 FDA Clears United Imaging Healthcare uExplorer Total-Body Scanner January 23, 2019 — United Imaging Healthcare (United Imaging) announced U.S. read more X-ray images such as the one on the left fail to indicate many cases of advanced bone destruction caused by multiple myeloma, says the author of new guidelines on imaging for patients with myeloma and related disorders.
