Researchers boost sensitivity and speed of Raman microscopy technique

Published: Wed, 17 Aug 2022 11:42:28 EDT

Researchers have developed a label-free and non-invasive Raman spectroscopy approach that can acquire microscopic images of biological samples and identify a wide range of biomolecules with unprecedented speed and sensitivity. The new technique is based on coherent anti-stokes Raman scattering (CARS) microscopy. The method could eventually make it easier and faster to diagnose cancer by allowing the visualization of the chemical constituents of human tissues and cells.

Smartphone video motion analysis detected narrowed neck arteries that may lead to stroke

Published: Wed, 17 Aug 2022 10:40:18 EDT

In a small study, motion analysis of video recorded on a smartphone accurately identified narrowed neck arteries in adults, which are a risk factor for stroke. The smartphone video motion analysis technology may be an early screening tool for detecting narrowed arteries in the neck, which may improve patient outcomes.

Using sound and bubbles to make bandages stickier and longer lasting

Published: Fri, 12 Aug 2022 13:47:38 EDT

Researchers have discovered that they can control the stickiness of adhesive bandages using ultrasound waves and bubbles. This breakthrough could lead to new advances in medical adhesives, especially in cases where adhesives are difficult to apply such as on wet skin.

PET scan visualization can measure effects of STING-activating drugs

Published: Wed, 10 Aug 2022 16:10:32 EDT

A new study suggests that readily available PET scanning could enable a whole-body analysis of the effects of systemic STING-activating therapy in humans, potentially providing a diagnostic tool to guide clinical development of this treatment approach.

Pairing imaging, AI may improve colon cancer screening, diagnosis

Published: Thu, 04 Aug 2022 10:25:42 EDT

Researchers have combined optical coherence tomography (OCT) and machine learning to develop a colorectal cancer imaging tool that may one day improve the traditional endoscopy currently used by doctors.

Cool room temperature inhibited cancer growth in mice

Published: Wed, 03 Aug 2022 11:26:17 EDT

Turning down the thermostat seems to make it harder for cancer cells to grow, according to a new study in mice. The study found that chilly temperatures activate heat-producing brown fat that consumes the sugars the tumors need to thrive. Similar metabolic mechanisms were found in a cancer patient exposed to a lowered room temperature.

Sound of music: Ultrasound exposure improves depressive behavior in rodents

Published: Mon, 01 Aug 2022 10:29:47 EDT

It is well known that whole-body exposure to high frequency ultrasound increases brain activity in humans. However, little is known about its impact and associated mechanisms on emotional states like depression. Now researchers have recently demonstrated the anti-depressant effects of ultrasound exposure in a rodent model of depression. Their findings shed light on the potential of ultrasound exposure as a non-invasive treatment for mental disorders.

Engineers develop stickers that can see inside the body

Published: Thu, 28 Jul 2022 14:29:25 EDT

Engineers designed an adhesive patch that produces ultrasound images of the body. The stamp-sized device sticks to skin and can provide continuous ultrasound imaging of internal organs for 48 hours.

High-tech imaging reveals details about rare eye disorder

Published: Thu, 28 Jul 2022 10:24:27 EDT

Using a new imaging technique, researchers have determined that retinal lesions from vitelliform macular dystrophy (VMD) vary by gene mutation. Addressing these differences may be key in designing effective treatments for this and other rare diseases.

AI performs as well as medical specialists in analyzing lung disease, research shows

Published: Wed, 27 Jul 2022 21:19:21 EDT

Researchers have developed an AI algorithm that accurately and quickly diagnoses idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, a lung disease. The algorithm makes its diagnosis based only on information from non-invasive examinations, including lung images and medical information collected during daily medical care.
