New tech takes radiation out of cancer screening

Published: Mon, 24 Feb 2020 11:14:15 EST

Researchers have developed a new, inexpensive technology that could save lives and money by routinely screening women for breast cancer without exposure to radiation. The system uses harmless microwaves and artificial intelligence (AI) software to detect even small, early-stage tumors within minutes.

Directing nanoparticles straight to tumors

Published: Mon, 24 Feb 2020 11:13:32 EST

Modern anticancer therapies aim to attack tumor cells while sparing healthy tissue. A team of researchers has now produced tiny nanoparticles that are designed to specifically target cancer cells. They can navigate directly to the tumor cells and visualize those using advanced imaging techniques. Both in Petri dishes and animal models, the scientists were able to effectively guide the nanoparticles to the cancer cells. The next step is to combine the new technique with therapeutic approaches.

New tool for an old disease: Use of PET and CT scans may help develop shorter TB treatment

Published: Mon, 24 Feb 2020 08:28:04 EST

Experts believe that tuberculosis, or TB, has been a scourge for humans for some 15,000 years, with the first medical documentation of the disease coming out of India around 1000 B.C.E. Today, the World Health Organization reports that TB is still the leading cause of death worldwide from a single infectious agent, responsible for some 1.5 million fatalities annually.

Surgeons successfully treat brain aneurysms using a robot

Published: Fri, 21 Feb 2020 16:07:31 EST

A robot was used to treat brain aneurysms for the first time. The robotic system could eventually allow remote surgery, enabling surgeons to treat strokes from afar.

Iron in brain shows cognitive decline in people with Parkinson's

Published: Thu, 20 Feb 2020 19:34:47 EST

A cutting-edge MRI technique to detect iron deposits in different brain regions can track declines in thinking, memory and movement in people with Parkinson's disease, finds a new study.

Researchers develop label-free microscopic techniques to visualize extracellular vesicles

Published: Thu, 20 Feb 2020 18:27:52 EST

Medical researchers can now use label-free microscopic techniques to visualize extracellular vesicles, which are associated with cancer.

Therapeutic cooling effectively targets site of brain injury

Published: Thu, 20 Feb 2020 14:17:15 EST

Investigators successfully measure brain temperature in newborn babies undergoing therapeutic cooling, showing that the treatment effectively targets the core of the brain.

Lensless on-chip microscopy platform shows slides in full view

Published: Wed, 19 Feb 2020 11:37:42 EST

Biomedical engineers have demonstrated a lensless on-chip microscopy platform that eliminates several of the most common problems with conventional optical microscopy and provides a low-cost option for the diagnosis of disease.

First glimpse of body's 'steering wheel' joint sparks hope

Published: Tue, 18 Feb 2020 10:47:25 EST

For the first time, scientists have found a way to reveal the mechanics of the human body's 'steering wheel' -- the subtalar joint.

Brain inflammation in veterans with Gulf War illness

Published: Thu, 13 Feb 2020 17:59:19 EST

In a new discovery, researchers have detected widespread inflammation in the brains of veterans diagnosed with Gulf War Illness.
