Nanodiamond tech lights new path in medical diagnostics

Earlier this month TechCrunch featured a look at a company that wants to make a difference in finding cancer before it spreads using nanodiamond-based technology. The idea is that nanodiamonds can detect molecular abnormalities at an early stage, and as… Read more →

Near-infrared imaging helps make cancer glow to improve surgical outcomes

A team of researchers at the University of Pennsylvania (Philadelphia, PA) has developed a new method to help surgeons see an entire tumor in a patient, increasing the likelihood of a positive outcome. Their approach relies on an injectable dye… Read more →

Bagasse-derived fluorescent carbon dots for bio-imaging

Carbon quantum dots (CDs) are the new stars of carbon nanomaterials. This is thanks to their numerous potential applications in biomedical imaging, photocatalysis, sensing and optoelectronic devices. Despite numerous achievements in this area, finding alternative, simple and low-cost routes to… Read more →

Researchers establish new strategy to help surgeons see entire tumor in patient

The best way to cure most cases of cancer is to surgically remove the tumor. The Achilles heel of this approach, however, is that the surgeon may fail to extract the entire tumor, leading to a local recurrence.

With a… Read more →

New self-assembling nanoparticle helps doctors diagnose cancer earlier

Scientists have designed a new self-assembling nanoparticle that targets tumours, to help doctors diagnose cancer earlier.

The new nanoparticle, developed by researchers at Imperial College London, boosts the effectiveness of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanning by specifically seeking out receptors… Read more →

Review proposes imaging tools to help visualize peripheral nerve regeneration process

Researchers at the Institute of Polymer Science and Engineering in Taipei, Taiwan, led by Dr. Hsu have been involved in peripheral nerve regeneration research for more than ten years. Dr. Hsu and her team have focused on development of polymeric… Read more →

Eden licenses Sandia’s technology to develop radioactive isotope for medical diagnostic tests

An Albuquerque startup company has licensed a Sandia National Laboratories technology that offers a way to make molybdenum-99, a key radioactive isotope needed for diagnostic imaging in nuclear medicine, in the United States. Known as moly 99, it is made… Read more →

Antibody-based molecular imaging agent offers hope for novel breast cancer treatments

For years researchers have been developing molecular imaging techniques that visualize hormonally active breast cancer cells-specifically those testing positive for human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2). A recent innovation in breast cancer biomarkers seeks the HER3 receptor instead, which… Read more →

NIR fluorescence imaging method enables improved lymphatic system imaging

A team of researchers at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) Medical School has developed a new technology involving a fluorescent dye, commercially available laser diode, and military-grade night vision device that can noninvasively image the… Read more →

Tracking cancer cells circulating in the blood using florescent proteins

After cancer spreads, finding and destroying malignant cells that circulate in the body is usually critical to patient survival.

Now, researchers reporting in the Cell Press journal Chemistry & Biology have developed a new method that allows investigators to label… Read more →
