Medical Imaging News -- ScienceDaily

Novel technique may significantly reduce breast biopsies

Published: Tue, 11 Dec 2018 19:21:53 EST

A novel technique that uses mammography to determine the biological tissue composition of a tumor could help reduce unnecessary breast biopsies, according to a new study.

Predicting leaky heart valves with 3D printing

Published: Mon, 10 Dec 2018 11:57:49 EST

Researchers have created a novel 3D printing workflow that allows cardiologists to evaluate how different valve sizes will interact with each patient's unique anatomy, before the medical procedure is actually performed. This protocol uses CT scan data to produce physical models of individual patients' aortic valves, in addition to a 'sizer' device to determine the perfect replacement valve size.

Promising diagnostic tool for Alzheimer's disease

Published: Mon, 10 Dec 2018 09:10:24 EST

Researchers have identified in live human brains new radioactive 'tracer' molecules that bind to and 'light up' tau tangles, a protein associated with a number of neurodegenerative diseases including Alzheimer's disease and other related dementias.

The naked eye alone is not enough to ensure the accurate diagnosis of skin cancer, say experts

Published: Fri, 07 Dec 2018 21:08:00 EST

The visual inspection of a suspicious skin lesion using the naked eye alone is not enough to ensure the accurate diagnosis of skin cancer, a group of experts have concluded.

New imaging tools that trace key breast cancer enzymes may help guide therapies

Published: Thu, 06 Dec 2018 12:00:59 EST

A set of emerging diagnostic tools may help identify breast cancer patients who are most likely to benefit from therapies that target important enzymes fueling a range of subtypes, including BCRA-mutated and triple negative cancers.

A new molecular player involved in T cell activation

Published: Thu, 06 Dec 2018 11:59:55 EST

Scientists have imaged live T cells to reveal the role of CLIP-170 in T-cell activation, a critical process in the immune response.

Revolutionary technology pinpoints biopsies to detect prostate cancer

Published: Wed, 05 Dec 2018 23:26:55 EST

Medical software that overlays tumor information from MRI scans onto ultrasound images can help guide surgeons conducting biopsies and improve prostate cancer detection.

Whole-brain imaging of mice during behavior

Published: Wed, 05 Dec 2018 13:41:23 EST

In a new study, researchers demonstrate how functional ultrasound imaging can yield high-resolution, brain-wide activity maps of mice for specific behaviors. The non-invasive technology has promising applications for ophthalmologic, neurologic and psychiatric diseases.

More sensitive MRI diagnostics thanks to innovative 'elastic' contrast media

Published: Fri, 30 Nov 2018 09:01:57 EST

Researchers have found a new method for obtaining high-quality images in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), that requires less contrast medium compared to current methods.

Safer and cheaper 3D medical imaging

Published: Thu, 29 Nov 2018 10:35:12 EST

A new study has discovered a promising way to significantly lower doses of X-rays that has the potential to revolutionize 3D medical imaging and make screening for early signs of disease much cheaper and safer.
