New biological evidence reveals link between brain inflammation and major depression

Published: Wed, 28 Jan 2015 16:38:24 GMT

The measure of brain inflammation in people who were experiencing clinical depression was increased by 30 per cent, researchers have discovered. These findings have important implications for developing new treatments for depression.

Targeted MRI/ultrasound beats standard biopsy to detect high-risk prostate cancer

Published: Tue, 27 Jan 2015 17:12:01 GMT

Targeted biopsy using new fusion technology that combines magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with ultrasound is more effective than standard biopsy in detecting high-risk prostate cancer, according to a large-scale study.

Novel radioguided brain surgery technique could help pinpoint cancerous tissue

Published: Tue, 27 Jan 2015 16:09:44 GMT

A novel radioguided surgery technique could quickly and effectively identify residual cancer cells during brain tumor surgery, with low radiation exposure for both patients and surgeons. The study reports that Y-90 DOTATOC, a beta-minus-emitting tracer, can effectively delineate the margins of meningiomas and high-grade gliomas.

Study of former NFL players reveals specifics of concussive brain damage

Published: Mon, 26 Jan 2015 18:51:40 GMT

Results of a small study of nine men provide further evidence for potential long-term neurological risk to football players who sustain repeated concussions and support calls for better player protections.

Cell imaging gets colorful

Published: Mon, 26 Jan 2015 17:47:25 GMT

The detection and imaging of protein-protein interactions in live cells just got a lot more colorful, thanks to a new technology. The new method converts biochemical processes into color changes that are easily visualized. This method is a new tool for cell biologists and neuroscientists to use to address questions ranging from fundamental mechanisms in cell biology, to the underlying causes of mental illness, to the discovery of novel therapeutics.

Initial diagnostic test in ED for chest pain did not affect low rate of heart attack

Published: Mon, 26 Jan 2015 17:46:08 GMT

Patients seen in the emergency department for chest pain who did not have a heart attack appeared to be at low risk of experiencing a heart attack during short- and longer-term follow-up and that risk was not affected by the initial diagnostic testing strategy, according to a study.

Majority of primary care physicians find that medical imaging improves patient care

Published: Mon, 26 Jan 2015 14:53:16 GMT

Large majorities of primary care physicians believe that advanced medical imaging, such as computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET), provides considerable value to patient care.

Medical radiation may be reduced to one-sixth with new mathematical discovery

Published: Mon, 26 Jan 2015 13:40:15 GMT

One of this century's most significant mathematical discoveries may reduce the number of measuring points to one-sixth of the present level. This means reduced exposure to radiation and faster medical imaging diagnostics.

Testosterone helps bind antidepressants in brain

Published: Mon, 26 Jan 2015 13:38:16 GMT

Female sex hormones have a strong effect on the psyche. This has been confirmed by numerous scientific studies and by phenomena such as the "baby blues", a bout of low mood following childbirth, or recurrent mood swings that occur prior to menstruation. However the male sex hormone testosterone also affects our mood and emotions, as well as our libido - and in a positive way.

Cherenkov emissions provide investigators real-time tool for quality assurance in radiation therapy

Published: Sat, 24 Jan 2015 00:01:41 GMT

Using a simple camera and water tank, investigators demonstrated that induced Cherenkov light can be imaged and used to confirm that the complex spatial dose distribution imparted in dynamic treatment plans is being delivered correctly.
