White matter damage caused by 'skunk-like' cannabis, study shows

Published: Fri, 27 Nov 2015 15:23:33 GMT

Smoking high potency 'skunk-like' cannabis can damage a crucial part of the brain responsible for communication between the two brain hemispheres, according to a new study.

Ultrasound examinations can identify patients at risk of stroke

Published: Wed, 25 Nov 2015 13:38:25 GMT

Ultrasound, a non-invasive technique commonly used to study the presence of atherosclerosis disease in blood vessels, can be used to identify patients at increased risk of future stroke who could benefit from surgery. Since surgical treatment to prevent stroke is only considered beneficial to some, ultrasound can prove useful in preventing unnecessary surgical intervention, new research shows.

Breast MRI after mammography may identify additional aggressive cancers

Published: Wed, 25 Nov 2015 13:35:39 GMT

Additional breast cancers found with MRI are sometimes larger and potentially more aggressive than those found on mammography, according to a new study. Researchers said that in some cases MRI findings of additional cancers not seen on mammography may necessitate a change in treatment.

New method enables biomedical imaging at one-thousandth the cost

Published: Tue, 24 Nov 2015 01:34:34 GMT

A biomedical imaging system has been developed that could ultimately replace a $100,000 piece of a lab equipment with components that cost just hundreds of dollars. The system uses a technique called fluorescence lifetime imaging, which has applications in DNA sequencing and cancer diagnosis, among other things. The new work could therefore have implications for both biological research and clinical practice.

Inflammation linked to weakened reward circuits in depression

Published: Fri, 20 Nov 2015 23:29:42 GMT

Persistent inflammation affects the brain in ways that are connected with stubborn symptoms of depression, such as anhedonia, the inability to experience pleasure. The findings bolster the case that the high-inflammation form of depression is distinct, and are guiding researchers' plans to test treatments tailored for it.

First-in-human use of virtual reality imaging in cardiac cath lab to treat blocked coronary artery

Published: Fri, 20 Nov 2015 14:21:37 GMT

Virtual reality has potential to revolutionize some aspects of medicine and healthcare. Several medical specialties are already using it to train physicians and assist diagnosis and it also has potential for treatment. A group of cardiologists has now successfully used a VR device to guide the opening up (revascularization) of a chronically blocked right coronary artery.

Nanocarriers may carry new hope for brain cancer therapy

Published: Thu, 19 Nov 2015 21:10:18 GMT

A new family of nanocarriers, called '3HM,' has been developed and meets all the size and stability requirements for effectively delivering therapeutic drugs to the brain for the treatment of a deadly form of cancer known as glioblastoma multiforme.

Brains with autism adapt differently during implicit learning

Published: Thu, 19 Nov 2015 17:22:48 GMT

A crucial difference in the way learning occurs in the brains of adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) has been identified by scientists. They have examined how the brains of typical and ASD individuals gradually became adapted to visual patterns they were learning, without awareness of the pattern, or implicit learning.

New method developed to predict response to nanotherapeutics

Published: Wed, 18 Nov 2015 23:04:57 GMT

A new approach has been created that uses an FDA-approved, magnetic nanoparticle and magnetic resonance imaging to identify tumors most likely to respond to drugs delivered via nanoparticles.

Technique to more effectively diagnose, treat cancer developed

Published: Wed, 18 Nov 2015 18:10:22 GMT

A method to better trace changes in cancers and treatment of the prostate and lung without the limitations associated with radiation has been developed by researchers.
