The U. S. Preventive Services Task Force, made up of 16 medical experts appointed by the federal government's Department of Health and Human Services, has recently recommended that former and current smokers, ages 55 to 80, receive annual CT scans to test for lung cancer. If the recommendation is put into effect, insurers, as a result of Obamacare, would be required to cover the procedure for around 10 million Americans who would qualify. To be sure, the requirement, as compared with chest rays and illustrated by a study by the National Cancer Institute, could result in a 20 percent decrease in deaths from smoking.

No illegal drugs or tobacco was found during a drug dog scan at Fallston Middle School Tuesday. The scan, done as part of the school system's commitment to keeping illicit drugs out of the schools, was done using a police dog under the direction of the Harford County Sheriff's Office. The building scan involved 344 lockers. The 25-minute scan (8:25 to 8:50 a.m.), supervised by four deputies from the Harford County Sheriff's Office, one drug dog, two school administrators and the school system's Coordinator of Safety and Security, resulted in two alerts that produced no controlled dangerous substances or tobacco.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Before the Orioles' final Grapefruit League game Thursday night, manager Buck Showalter said one of his main goals for the day was to get out of Florida having avoided an injury. The Orioles appeared to dodge a major scare in the fourth inning of their spring finale against the Tampa Bay Rays when designated hitter Nelson Cruz left the game after he was hit in the batting helmet by a pitch from Alex Cobb. Cruz was taken to a local hospital for a precautionary CAT scan, which came back negative, according to the club.

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. - Orioles right-hander Jake Arrieta sparkled in his Grapefruit League debut - his first spring outing since undergoing right elbow surgery last August - throwing two hitless innings in Baltimore's 3-3 10-inning Grapefruit League tie with the Rays. Arrieta's performance, however, was overshadowed by a very scary moment in the top of the first, when Orioles left fielder Nolan Reimold was hit in the left side of his jaw by an Alex Cobb fastball. Reimold fell to the ground holding his face and was carted off the field.

BOSTON -- After he was hit in the head in the ninth inning of Friday night's game, Orioles second baseman Robert Andino was out of the starting lineup for this afternoon's game. Andino, who took a 94-mph fastball to the back of his helmet from Mark Melancon, went to a local hospital after Friday's game to get a CT scan, the results of which were negative. He was scheduled to take a concussion test before today's game. He'd have to pass that before he's cleared to play. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he's optimistic that if cleared Andino would return to the starting lineup on Sunday.

An influential U.S. health care panel's recommendation for lung cancer screening of high-risk patients could fortify Baltimore-area hospitals' efforts to prevent deaths from the disease, which kills more each year than the next four deadliest cancers combined. Patients ages 55-80 who are or have been heavy smokers will likely be able to get insurance coverage for preventive CT scans examining their lungs for abnormalities. Some patients have been paying up to $300 out-of-pocket for the procedures, and several local hospitals have invested in performing them more frequently as research indicated a possible benefit.

They're calling it the fitting room of the future, an enclosed kiosk in a mall common area that shoppers step into for a free, full (and fully clothed) body scan. After 10 seconds, a shopper emerges, then gets printed recommendations on size, style and brand and a list of stores offering the apparel. Me-Ality, the New York-based company behind "Measured Reality" body scanning stations, says the days of trying on four different sizes to find the best fit could be over.  Inside the scanning station, a vertical wand moves around a person's body, emitting low-power radio signals - not X-Rays or radiation  - similar to, but weaker than, signals sent by a cell phone.

Sometimes living in the future is awesome.  Crate & Barrel just launched its new registry app. Similar to a QR code, you hold your phone up to an item, scan it and it automatically populates in your online registry. From this app, you can monitor the registry, too. You can track which gifts have been purchased, edit your list, and - to make it cooler - you can do all this through voice command. As I discussed before, we're using myregistry.com and asking primarily for wine, though if this app had been invented a few months ago we would have considered going with Crate & Barrel.

Baltimore's Afro-American newspaper has a rich photo archive - 1.5 million images dating from the Depression, World War II and the civil rights era up to today. But one of the nation's oldest African-American newspapers didn't have the hundreds of thousands of dollars needed to digitize its historic images for the Internet age. Now, thanks to a little robot built by a former Johns Hopkins student, the effort has gotten a lot cheaper. Using off-the-shelf electronics, Thomas Smith, a 2011 Hopkins graduate, built Gado, a swiveling, motorized arm with a nozzle that uses vacuum suction to "grab" photos and place them on a scanner.

I have an HP 4100C Scanjet scanner. When I scan and print, the system works perfectly. But when I scan and download to Paint or Wordpad, the material is greatly enlarged. There is a way to change the size of each scanned piece, but how can I easily reproduce material in its original size?The easiest way to shrink those huge images that scanners make by default is to load those large files into that Paint program in Windows and shrink them.Scan a picture and then use the File/Open command in Paint to load it. Then use the command marked Image at the top of the screen and pick Stretch/Skew.
