Asymptomatic atherosclerosis linked to cognitive impairment

Published: Tue, 25 Nov 2014 12:48:26 GMT

In a study of nearly 2,000 adults, researchers found that a buildup of plaque in the body's major arteries was associated with mild cognitive impairment. Atherosclerosis is a condition in which fat, cholesterol and other substances collect in the arteries, forming a substance called plaque that can build up, limiting blood flow. It can occur in any artery of the body, including the carotid, which supplies blood to the brain, coronary arteries and the aorta, which carries oxygenated blood from the heart through the abdomen to the rest of body.

An inside job: Designer nanoparticles infiltrate, kill cancer cells from within

Published: Mon, 24 Nov 2014 16:18:55 GMT

Nanoparticle designs target and treat early stage cancer cells by killing those cells with heat, delivered from inside the cell itself. Normal cells are thus left unaffected by the treatment regimen.

Football players found to have brain damage from mild 'unreported' concussions

Published: Mon, 24 Nov 2014 15:32:27 GMT

There wasn't a diagnostic capability to identify mild brain injury early after the trauma until recently. In the NFL, other professional sports and especially school sports, concern has grown about the long-term neuropsychiatric consequences of repeated mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI) and specifically sports-related concussive and sub-concussive head impacts.'

In landmark study of cell therapy for heart attack, more cells make a difference

Published: Fri, 21 Nov 2014 19:12:22 GMT

Physicians from 60 sites treated 161 heart attack patients with their own bone marrow cells, selected for their healing potential and then reinjected into the heart, in an effort to improve the heart's recovery. Their conclusion? Patients who receive more cells get significant benefits.

Lighting up tumors: Fluorescent nanoprobe could become a universal, noninvasive method to identify and monitor tumors

Published: Fri, 21 Nov 2014 17:11:39 GMT

Researchers have developed a hybrid metal-polymer nanoparticle that lights up in the acidic environment surrounding tumor cells. Nonspecific probes that can identify any kind of tumor are extremely useful for monitoring the location and spread of cancer and the effects of treatment, as well as aiding initial diagnosis.

Pain, magnet displacement in MRI in patients with cochlear implants

Published: Thu, 20 Nov 2014 23:36:00 GMT

Pain, discomfort and magnet displacement were documented in a small medical records review study of patients with cochlear implants who underwent magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), according to a new report.

Medical students can learn how to use handheld ultrasound technology to improve their physical diagnosis

Published: Wed, 19 Nov 2014 15:18:50 GMT

Training medical students to use a handheld ultrasound device can enhance the accuracy of their physical diagnosis, a study shows.

Two sensors in one: Nanoparticles that enable both MRI and fluorescent imaging could monitor cancer, other diseases

Published: Tue, 18 Nov 2014 17:56:00 GMT

Chemists have developed new nanoparticles that can simultaneously perform magnetic resonance imaging and fluorescent imaging in animals. Such particles could help scientists to track specific molecules produced in the body, monitor a tumor's environment, or determine whether drugs have successfully reached their targets.

Heart muscle inflammation, swelling peak twice after heart attack

Published: Tue, 18 Nov 2014 14:13:49 GMT

Results of a new study challenge the current consensus in cardiology that peak myocardial edema, or heart muscle swelling, only occurs just after a myocardial infarction, or heart attack.

US radiology departments prepare for Ebola

Published: Tue, 18 Nov 2014 12:29:38 GMT

Radiologists have issued a special report on radiology preparedness for handling cases of Ebola virus. Healthcare administrators are placing a major emphasis on Ebola preparedness training at medical facilities throughout the U.S. Failure to have proper procedures in place to diagnose and treat patients with Ebola virus was cited as a major reason for infection of medical personnel in Dallas.
