Interventional radiology treatment relieves chronic plantar fasciitis

Published: Sun, 01 Mar 2015 14:21:38 GMT

Patients suffering from chronic plantar fasciitis now have a new weapon against this debilitating foot ailment. Researchers utilized ultrasound imaging and energy to penetrate, emulsify and remove diseased fasciitis tissue.

Enhancing studies on a possible blood biomarker for traumatic brain injury

Published: Fri, 27 Feb 2015 18:09:18 GMT

New technology could help advance blood biomarker capabilities for improved diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of traumatic brain injury (TBI). An estimated 1.7 million Americans suffer a traumatic brain injury each year, and an estimated 5.3 million individuals -- approximately two percent of the U.S. population -- are living with disability as a result of TBI. Traumatic brain injuries can occur from even the slightest bump or blow to the head.

Small molecule helps get stem cells to sites of disease, damage

Published: Thu, 26 Feb 2015 18:19:46 GMT

Bioengineers have identified small molecules that can be used to program stem cells to home in on sites of damage, disease and inflammation. The techniques used to find and test these small molecules may represent important tools in advancing cell-based therapy, offering a new strategy for delivering cells to the right locations in the body.

Cherenkov Effect improves radiation therapy for patients with cancer

Published: Wed, 25 Feb 2015 16:41:00 GMT

The complex parts of the blue light known as the Cherenkov Effect can be measured and used in dosimetry to make therapies safer and more effective, scientists report.

Magnetic nanoparticles could stop blood clot-caused strokes

Published: Mon, 23 Feb 2015 17:24:27 GMT

By loading magnetic nanoparticles with drugs and dressing them in biochemical camouflage, researchers say they can destroy blood clots 100 to 1,000 times faster than a commonly used clot-busting technique.

Combination of imaging methods improves diagnostics

Published: Thu, 19 Feb 2015 13:58:29 GMT

A breakthrough for the further development of contrast agents has been made by researchers, with the promise of improved diagnostics with imaging using MRI procedures.

Scientists use MRI to visualize pancreas inflammation in type 1 diabetes

Published: Wed, 18 Feb 2015 17:39:07 GMT

It is possible to use magnetic resonance imaging to 'see' the inflammation in the pancreas that leads to type 1 diabetes, a pilot study has revealed. Autoimmunity and inflammation directed against the pancreas and its insulin-producing beta cells underlie the development of type 1 diabetes, researchers note.

Research shows value of additional PET/CT scans in follow-up of lung cancer patients

Published: Wed, 18 Feb 2015 17:30:01 GMT

New research reveals a high value of scans which could lead to future change of reimbursement policies for follow-up positron emission tomography/computed tomography studies in lung cancer. The study establishes the value of fourth and subsequent follow-up PET/CT scans in clinical assessment and management change in patients with the disease.

Gold nanotubes launch a three-pronged attack on cancer cells

Published: Fri, 13 Feb 2015 02:19:49 GMT

Scientists have shown that gold nanotubes have many applications in fighting cancer: internal nanoprobes for high-resolution imaging; drug delivery vehicles; and agents for destroying cancer cells.

Instructional DVD reduces MRI scan patients' anxiety and improves scan quality

Published: Thu, 12 Feb 2015 17:22:09 GMT

A DVD designed to help people prepare for a Magnetic Resonance Imaging scan, including guidance on how to relax, led to more successful scans. The patients receiving the DVD also felt less anxious during the scan says a paper published in the British Journal of Health Psychology.
