Smallest 3-D camera offers brain surgery innovation

Published: Thu, 27 Aug 2015 15:11:11 GMT

To operate on the brain, doctors need to see fine details on a small scale. A tiny camera that could produce 3-D images from inside the brain would help surgeons see more intricacies of the tissue they are handling and lead to faster, safer procedures.

Do antipsychotic medications affect cortical thinning?

Published: Thu, 03 Sep 2015 12:17:59 GMT

People diagnosed with schizophrenia critically rely upon treatment with antipsychotic medications to manage their symptoms and help them function at home and in the workplace. But despite their benefits, antipsychotic medications might also have some negative effects on brain structure or function when taken for long periods of time.

Risk of cognitive impairment in children born prematurely may be predicted using MRI after birth

Published: Wed, 02 Sep 2015 13:13:41 GMT

School age children who are born prematurely are more likely to have low mathematical achievement, thought to be associated with reduced working memory and number skills, according to a new study.

New technology transforms cell phone into high-powered microscope

Published: Tue, 01 Sep 2015 22:59:01 GMT

New technology that transforms a cell phone into a powerful, mobile microscope could significantly improve malaria diagnoses and treatment in developing countries that often lack the resources to address the life-threatening disease, says a biomedical engineer who has created the tool.

Accuracy of dementia brain imaging must improve

Published: Tue, 01 Sep 2015 15:35:33 GMT

MRI scans and other tools to detect and diagnose dementia are helpful but not definitive. A new report evaluates how well different types of brain imaging tests work to detect Alzheimer's and predict how the disease will progress.The results show that the accuracy of brain imaging must be improved before it can be rolled out on a scale that could be useful to healthcare providers and patients.

Treatment with life-saving drugs increases but still suboptimal in ischemic heart disease

Published: Tue, 01 Sep 2015 15:34:19 GMT

Treatment with life-saving medications has increased over the past 10 years in ischemic heart disease but levels are still suboptimal, according to the first results a new study. Statin prescriptions markedly increased from 48 percent to 67 percent before admission and reached 93 percent at discharge.

Surprise cardiac finding predicts future risk

Published: Sun, 30 Aug 2015 19:02:35 GMT

In patients with chronic ischemic heart disease, a small left ventricle with thick walls, is the strongest predictor of morphologic remodelling, which is generally considered a first step towards heart failure, according to unexpected findings.

Important steps toward developing a blood test to catch pancreatic cancer early

Published: Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:23:39 GMT

Pancreatic cancer is the fourth most common cause of cancer-related death in the United States and has a 5-year survival rate of only 6 percent, which is the lowest rate of all types of cancer.  This low survival rate is partially attributed to the difficulty in detecting pancreatic cancer at an early stage.

New embryo image processing technology could assist in IVF implantation success rates

Published: Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:23:01 GMT

Biologists and engineers have developed a new non-invasive image processing technique to visualize embryo formation. Researchers were able to see, for the first time, the movement of all of the cells in living mammalian embryos as they develop under the microscope. This breakthrough has important implications for IVF treatments and pre-implantation genetic diagnosis. In the future, this approach could help with embryo selection to improve IVF success rates.

Brain scans predict response to antipsychotic medications

Published: Fri, 28 Aug 2015 12:10:34 GMT

Investigators have discovered that brain scans can be used to predict patients' response to antipsychotic drug treatment.
