PET imaging tracks Zika virus infection, disease progression in mouse model

Published: Tue, 19 Sep 2017 16:41:25 EDT

For the first time, scientists have used Positron Emission Tomography (PET) imaging to study brain inflammation following Zika virus infection in mice, according to a study. Traditional methods of infectious disease research using animal models provide limited information about disease progression until the study's endpoint, when investigators can analyze tissues from those animals. Imaging studies allow longitudinal studies of the same animal during the course of infection.

Decreased glucose metabolism in medial prefrontal areas is associated with nutritional status in patients with prodromal and early Alzheimer's disease

Published: Fri, 15 Sep 2017 14:41:35 EDT

A new study shows that hypometabolism in the medial prefrontal areas is specifically associated with Alzheimer's disease-related nutritional problems, and decrease in fat mass may have a key role.

New software turns mobile-phone accessory into breathing monitor

Published: Wed, 13 Sep 2017 19:31:24 EDT

Researchers have developed new software that makes it possible to use low-cost, thermal cameras attached to mobile phones to track how fast a person is breathing. This type of mobile thermal imaging could be used for monitoring breathing problems in elderly people living alone, people suspected of having sleep apnea or babies at risk for sudden infant death syndrome.

Medicine of the future: New microchip technology could be used to track 'smart pills'

Published: Tue, 12 Sep 2017 13:48:44 EDT

Chemical and electrical engineers team up to create a new breed of microdevices for medical diagnostics.

Patients to benefit from new 3-D visualizations of the heart

Published: Mon, 11 Sep 2017 12:26:23 EDT

In the future heart surgeons will have access to a new type of 3-D visualization of the cardiac conduction system. This technique could provide improved safety for patients and improve surgical outcomes in patients suffering from heart disease and cardiac malformations, explains a new report.

Eye changes may signal frontotemporal lobe degeneration

Published: Fri, 08 Sep 2017 20:55:20 EDT

Frontotemporal degeneration (FTD) is a progressive neurodegenerative condition that is present in tens of thousands of Americans, but is often difficult to diagnose accurately. Now a study has found evidence that a simple eye exam and retinal imaging test may help improve that accuracy.

New guidelines discourage use of brain imaging as a 'lie detector' for chronic pain

Published: Fri, 08 Sep 2017 20:54:50 EDT

A task force consisting of researchers from around the world has released a set of recommendations that advise against the use of brain imaging as a test for chronic pain.

New dental imaging method uses squid ink to fish for gum disease

Published: Thu, 07 Sep 2017 10:24:22 EDT

Squid ink could one day make getting checked for gum disease at the dentist less tedious and even painless. By combining squid ink with light and ultrasound, a team led by engineers has developed a new dental imaging method to examine a patient's gums that is noninvasive, more comprehensive and more accurate than the state of the art.

Common cerebral white matter abnormalities found in children with autistic traits

Published: Wed, 06 Sep 2017 13:56:02 EDT

White matter structural changes in children correspond to severity of autistic traits, a brain imaging study shows.

Quantum tech has its sights set on human biochemistry

Published: Wed, 06 Sep 2017 10:36:34 EDT

Scientists have developed a new tool for imaging life at the nanoscale that will provide new insights into the role of transition metal ions such as copper in neurodegenerative diseases.
