New ACH ICU

Today and tomorrow, the neo-natal intensive care unit is moving into the new south wing at Arkansas Children's Hospital.

It's part of a 258,000 square-foot expansion which adds 54 inpatient beds, updates to the heart center and neonatal intensive care unit, and a new emergency department.

The building also includes more clinic space and a new unit for children with cancer.

Psychological Abuse

Psychological abuse is one of the most difficult forms of abuse to spot in a child.

And now, researchers say this type of abuse or maltreatment can lead to severe emotional distress and developmental problems.

It's also more common in stressed households dealing with family conflict, and sometimes may not be intentional.

The new findings appear in the journal "Pediatrics."

PSA screenings

A new study suggests not screening for prostate cancer would triple the number of men in the U.S. who develop an advanced form of the disease.

Researchers compared data from prostate cancer cases from 1983 to 1985.

They created a model predicting how many advanced cancer cases there would have been in 2008 if PSA testing was not done.

Instead of the 8,000 actual late-stage cases diagnosed in 2008, the team says there would have been 25,000 cases.
