Researchers have developed the first instrument that can provide a detailed image of the entire eye that can produce higher quality images than currently available.

Most patients with unknown spinal cord disease later given specific diagnosis, study shows

Published: Tue, 09 Jan 2018 12:46:49 EST

A study found that most patients with suspected spinal cord inflammation of unknown cause have an alternative, specific diagnosis.

Prolonged periods of sedentary time strongly associated with amount of fat around internal organs

Published: Tue, 09 Jan 2018 09:18:02 EST

Researchers have found new evidence to suggest that longer periods of sedentary time (defined as any sitting/reclining activity with low energy expenditure) are more strongly associated with the amount of fat deposited around internal organs.

Novel PET tracer clearly identifies and tracks bacterial infection in lungs

Published: Mon, 08 Jan 2018 10:58:15 EST

Researchers have demonstrated that a new radiotracer, 2-18F-fluorodeoxysorbitol (18F-FDS), can identify and track bacterial infection in lungs better than current imaging methods and is able to differentiate bacterial infection from inflammation.

Next-generation medical scanning

Published: Fri, 05 Jan 2018 14:24:56 EST

Researchers have developed a new way to magnetise molecules found naturally in the human body, paving the way for a new generation of low-cost magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology that would transform our ability to diagnose and treat diseases including cancer, diabetes and dementia.

Advances in brain imaging settle debate over spread of key protein in Alzheimer's

Published: Fri, 05 Jan 2018 08:23:19 EST

Recent advances in brain imaging have enabled scientists to show for the first time that a key protein which causes nerve cell death spreads throughout the brain in Alzheimer's disease -- and hence that blocking its spread may prevent the disease from taking hold.

Advanced MRI can detect placental perfusion abnormalities in pregnancies complicated by fetal CHD

Published: Thu, 04 Jan 2018 16:08:22 EST

In pregnancies complicated by fetal congenital heart disease, global placental perfusion was significantly decreased and regional variation of placental perfusion significantly increased as pregnancies progressed, findings that point to non-invasive imaging providing an early warning of placental dysfunction.

Milestone' for new noninvasive heart test medicare now covers FFR-CTcoronary artery test

Published: Thu, 04 Jan 2018 12:42:58 EST

On Jan. 1, Medicare began covering a new noninvasive test for heart disease called FFR-CT. "Medicare coverage is a major milestone," said Loyola Medicine cardiologist Mark Rabbat, MD. "Millions of Americans now can potentially benefit from this game-changing technology."

Bright and stable: New acid-tolerant green fluorescent protein for bioimaging

Published: Thu, 04 Jan 2018 12:03:23 EST

Fluorescent proteins (FPs) are powerful tools for visualization of molecular and cellular processes; however, most FPs lose fluorescence at a pH lower than their neutral pKa (~6). A team of researchers developed the acid-tolerant green FP -- termed Gamillus -- cloned from flower hat jellyfish. Gamillus exhibits excellent brightness, maturation speed, and photostablity, even in low pH environments, making it a feasible molecular tag for imaging in acidic organelles.

Scientists design bacteria to reflect 'sonar' signals for ultrasound imaging

Published: Wed, 03 Jan 2018 13:27:40 EST

Scientists have designed bacteria to reflect sound waves like submarines. The technology could eventually allow doctors to image therapeutic bacteria in the body using ultrasound.

Tailoring cancer treatments to individual patients

Published: Wed, 03 Jan 2018 12:30:54 EST

Researchers have developed computer models to predict how cancer will progress in a specific individual, based on tissue, cellular and subcellular protein signaling responses. The models can predict how brain tumors (gliomas) will grow with much greater accuracy than previous models. Recently, the group began a clinical study to predict how an individual's cancer will progress after one cycle of therapy, and to use that prediction to plan the course of treatment.

Total-body PET: Maximizing sensitivity for clinical research and patient care

Published: Wed, 03 Jan 2018 11:14:21 EST

The new total-body PET/CT scanner could revolutionize our understanding and treatment of disease through analysis of better imaging data from the whole body. Scientists have outlined the development and benefits of this innovative diagnostic tool and explained how maximizing PET sensitivity will advance clinical research and patient care.

State-of-the-art MRI technology bypasses need for biopsy

Published: Tue, 02 Jan 2018 17:00:11 EST

The most common type of tumor found in the kidney is generally quite small (less than 1.5 in). These tumors are usually found by accident when CAT scans are performed for other reasons and the serendipitous finding poses a problem for doctors.

Preterm infants have narrowed upper airways, which may explain higher obstructive sleep apnea risk

Published: Sat, 23 Dec 2017 13:48:01 EST

A multidisciplinary team used MRI to determine that the risk factors that lead to obstructive sleep apena are confined to the uppermost airway and do not appear to be explained by enlarged adenoids and tonsils.

Revised 'McDonald criteria' expected to speed the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis

Published: Fri, 22 Dec 2017 11:14:12 EST

The McDonald Criteria for the Diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis have just been revised in hopes of speeding diagnosis and reducing the chance of misdiagnosis.

Seasonal images reveal the science behind stem cells

Published: Thu, 21 Dec 2017 12:23:40 EST

At first glance, a new image seems to have a seasonal theme. But look more closely and you'll see that the component parts of the picture (or micrographs) of a Christmas tree are actually composed of stem cells created using innovative laser-based imaging techniques used in regenerative medicine research.

Fluorescent nanomedicine can guide tumor removal, kill remaining cancer cells

Published: Wed, 20 Dec 2017 19:57:25 EST

Scientists have developed a nanomedicine platform for cancer that can help doctors know which tissue to cut out as well as kill any malignant cells that can't be surgically removed.

Using MRI to understand why some women go into early labor

Published: Wed, 20 Dec 2017 12:17:58 EST

Scientists are using the latest imaging techniques usually used to map the brain to try and understand why some pregnant women miscarry or go into early labor.

Deadly heart rhythm halted by noninvasive radiation therapy

Published: Thu, 14 Dec 2017 10:17:57 EST

Radiation therapy often is used to treat cancer patients. Now, doctors have shown that radiation therapy -- aimed directly at the heart -- can be used to treat patients with a life-threatening heart rhythm. They treated five patients with irregular heart rhythms, called ventricular tachycardia, who had not responded to standard treatments. The therapy resulted in a dramatic reduction in the number of ventricular tachycardia episodes.

Stuttering: Stop signals in the brain disturb speech flow

Published: Tue, 12 Dec 2017 12:54:26 EST

'G-g-g-g-g-ood morning' is a daily obstacle for people who stutter. However, so far, not much is known about the causes of persistent developmental stuttering, which is the most frequent speech disorder. Scientists have recently discovered that a hyperactive network in the right frontal part of the brain plays a crucial role in this deficit. It inhibits speech movement planning and execution, thereby interrupting the flow of speech.
