Automated system identifies dense tissue, a risk factor for breast cancer, in mammograms

Published: Tue, 16 Oct 2018 13:19:33 EDT

Researchers have developed an automated model that assesses dense breast tissue in mammograms -- which is an independent risk factor for breast cancer -- as reliably as expert radiologists. This marks the first time a deep-learning model of its kind has successfully been used in a clinic on real patients, according to the researchers. With broad implementation, the researchers hope the model can help bring greater reliability to breast density assessments across the nation.

A new cancer weapon: Antibodies

Published: Thu, 11 Oct 2018 10:36:39 EDT

Engineers haVE proposed a novel approach to antibody-based imaging of cancer, using ultrasmall silica nanoparticles -- better known as 'Cornell dots' (or C dots).

Club drug GHB associated with brain and cognitive changes

Published: Mon, 08 Oct 2018 10:46:28 EDT

Scientists have discovered that regular use of the party drug GHB, and especially unconsciousness following GHB use, is associated with brain changes including negative effects on long-term memory, working memory, IQ, and higher levels of stress and anxiety.

AI could predict cognitive decline leading to Alzheimer's disease in the next five years

Published: Thu, 04 Oct 2018 15:54:21 EDT

A team of scientists has successfully trained a new artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm to make accurate predictions regarding cognitive decline leading to Alzheimer's disease.

New study evaluates efficacy of PET imaging to manage chronic liver diseases

Published: Thu, 04 Oct 2018 13:16:46 EDT

While liver biopsies are powerful and reliable, they are also invasive, painful, limited and subject to complications. These effects may soon be a thing of the past for some patients thanks to new research showing PET imaging with the 18F-FAC radiotracer can be used as a non-invasive substitute.

Researchers develop combined data model to better evaluate for mild cognitive impairment

Published: Thu, 04 Oct 2018 11:00:32 EDT

A new study has shown that by combining imaging and neuropsychological testing, one can more accurately assess the cognitive status of individuals.

Insomnia therapy may slow or reverse cortical gray matter atrophy in fibromyalgia

Published: Tue, 02 Oct 2018 12:39:27 EDT

Preliminary findings from a pilot study suggest that cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) may slow or even reverse the atrophy of cortical gray matter in patients who have co-morbid fibromyalgia.

Irreversible damage to color vision linked to popular erectile dysfunction drug

Published: Mon, 01 Oct 2018 13:03:36 EDT

Color vision problems caused by retinal damage on a cellular level can result from a high dose of sildenafil citrate, new research shows.

A 3-D-printed phantom head

Published: Fri, 28 Sep 2018 10:45:06 EDT

Phantoms are not just ghostly figures of our imagination, they are also numerical or physical models that represent human characteristics and provide an inexpensive way to test electromagnetic applications. A bioengineering researcher has developed a realistic phantom head for magnetic resonance studies.

Research teams find widespread inflammation in the brains of fibromyalgia patients

Published: Thu, 27 Sep 2018 12:29:46 EDT

A study has documented for the first time widespread inflammation in the brains of patients with the poorly understood condition called fibromyalgia.
