Chronic adversity dampens dopamine production

Published: Wed, 13 Nov 2019 07:51:11 EST

People exposed to a lifetime of psychosocial adversity may have an impaired ability to produce the dopamine levels needed for coping with acutely stressful situations.

Why only some post-stroke survivors can 'copy what I say'

Published: Tue, 12 Nov 2019 16:02:37 EST

Researchers report that the left lateral temporal cortex must be intact in stroke patients with aphasia if they are to have their speech entrained. In speech entrainment, stroke survivors practice fluent speech production by following along with another speaker.

Low-cost, portable system takes OCT beyond ophthalmology

Published: Tue, 12 Nov 2019 13:04:11 EST

Researchers have developed a way to perform optical coherence tomography (OCT) in hard-to-reach areas of the body such as joints. The advance could help bring this high-resolution biomedical imaging technique to new surgical and medical applications.

An exception to the rule: An intact sense of smell without a crucial olfactory brain structure

Published: Mon, 11 Nov 2019 10:49:57 EST

A handful of left-handed women have excellent senses of smell, despite lacking olfactory bulbs.

To monitor cancer therapy, researchers tag CAR T cells with imaging markers

Published: Thu, 07 Nov 2019 17:05:12 EST

The researchers genetically engineered CAR T cells with molecular tags, which they were able to monitor in an animal model using position emission tomography (PET) imaging.

New X-ray technology could revolutionize how doctors identify abnormalities

Published: Thu, 07 Nov 2019 16:06:01 EST

Using ground-breaking technology, researchers are testing a new method of X-ray imaging that uses color to identify microfractures in bones. Microfractures were previously impossible to see using standard X-ray imaging.

Placenta imaging method may aid diagnosis of pregnancy complications

Published: Thu, 07 Nov 2019 09:26:02 EST

A new imaging technique to track maternal blood flow to the placenta has the potential to help diagnose several common complications in early pregnancy, according to a new study. Researchers used the technique, referred to as pseudo-continuous arterial spin labeling magnetic resonance imaging (pCASL MRI), to identify women with reduced placental blood flow who later developed one or more complications.

Most surfing injuries involve shoulder or knee, surgery usually not required

Published: Wed, 06 Nov 2019 08:55:23 EST

A new study characterizes MRI patterns of acute surfing-related injuries in patients seeking care at HSS. Researchers also report on the proportion of those injuries that required orthopedic surgical intervention. The study found that the most common injuries involved the knee or shoulder. Surgery was usually not necessary.

Zooming into cilia sheds light into blinding diseases

Published: Tue, 05 Nov 2019 13:30:41 EST

A new study reveals an unprecedented close-up view of cilia linked to blindness.

'Intelligent' metamaterial makes MRIs affordable and accessible

Published: Tue, 05 Nov 2019 11:35:03 EST

Researchers have developed a new, 'intelligent' metamaterial -- which costs less than ten dollars to build -- that could revolutionize magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), making the entire MRI process faster, safer, and more accessible to patients around the world.
