Ground-breaking MRI Scan Shows Brown Fat in Tissues

 

The first MRI scan to show “brown fat” in a living adult could prove to be an essential step towards a new wave of therapies to aid the fight against diabetes and obesity. Researchers from Warwick Medical School and… Read more →

Technique Allows Whole-Brain Imaging with Single-Cell Resolution

Understanding the relationship between cellular phenomena and activity at the organism level has been difficult, particularly where the brain is concerned. Whole-brain imaging at single-cell resolution could help.

As scientists aim to clarify how neural activity translates into consciousness and… Read more →

Nidek ophthalmic OCT system receives FDA clearance

Ophthalmic equipment developer, maker, and distributor Nidek (Fremont, CA) has received FDA approval for the company’s RS-3000 Advance optical coherence tomography (OCT) system, which incorporates a scanning laser ophthalmoscope to evaluate the retina and choroid. The system provides detail of… Read more →

Automatic Tool Detects Ischemic Stroke from CT Scans

 

Detecting an embolic stroke quickly and accurately is a challenge that requires an experienced radiologist to analyze CT scans. Since time is of the essence in these situations, an automated computer system that can identify stroke can help patients… Read more →

Functional brain imaging reliably predicts which vegetative patients have potential to recover consciousness

A functional brain imaging technique known as positron emission tomography (PET) is a promising tool for determining which severely brain damaged individuals in vegetative states have the potential to recover consciousness, according to new research published in The Lancet.

Seno Imagio Opto-Acoustic Breast Cancer Imaging System Cleared in Europe

Seno Medical Instruments (San Antonio, Texas) received European CE Mark approval for its Imagio opto-acoustic breast imaging system. It’s currently being investigated in the U.S. in a study to determine whether it can help avoid unnecessary biopsies by identifying whether… Read more →

New fiber-optic device helps clinicians diagnose cancer at early-stage

An engineering researcher at the University of Arkansas has developed an inexpensive, endoscopic microscope capable of producing high-resolution, sub-cellular images of tissue in real time. The fiber-optic device, which is portable, re-usable and easily packaged with conventional endoscopes, will help… Read more →

High-Field MRI-Guided Linear Accelerator Brings Together Imaging, Radiotherapy to Zap Tumors

Radiation therapy using linear particle accelerators can be a bit a hit or miss process, since imaging of tumors and the therapy are done separately. A new system being installed at University Medical Center Utrecht in The Netherlands aims to… Read more →
