Using smaller vessels that allow access to shallow, nearshore waters, researchers from Stony Brook University and the Southwest Fisheries Science Center conducted the first multi-year survey of the population of Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba) in coastal waters near Livingston Island and discovered that nearshore waters had significantly higher krill biomass density than offshore waters. They also found that the nearshore waters had less interannual variation than offshore waters. These findings were published in the July 2010 issue of the Canadian Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences. Antarctic krill are tiny shrimp-like organisms that are an integral part of the Southern…

Ensuring the safety of pediatric cardiovascular and vascular patients who require computed tomographic angiography (CTA) for diagnostic purposes means that employing methods of low dose CTA is essential, according to Jeffrey C. Hellinger, M.D., a pediatric imaging specialist at Stony Brook University Medical Center. Dr. Hellinger expands on these methods in a review article in the early online edition of Radiologic Clinics of North America. Dr. Hellinger has developed CTA protocols that he has lectured on nationally that balance lower doses of radiation and clear diagnostic images when using CTA on infants and children. As Principal Author of “Pediatric Computed…

Stony Brook University is ranked three times in the August 22, 2010 edition of PARADE Magazine’s “College A-List” highlighting schools that often “fly under the radar.” “No disrespect to Harvard, Yale, and Princeton,” the magazine’s editors wrote, “but you don’t need to attend a fabled Ivy to get a big-league education.” The lists are based on “the recommendations of 43 top counselors across the country.” The three lists on which Stony Brook is cited include large state schools, premed, and flexible scheduling, about which the panel comments, “SUNY Stony Brook provides many options for students across all disciplines, which is…
