Distinguishing between healthy and cancerous cells just might be the biggest hurdle in cancer care physicians have encountered. A new MRI technique developed by radiologists at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas have fixed that problem using zinc.
Early detection is crucial when treating breast cancer—and to that end, researchers have turned to our own bodies to help. A study from Provista Diagnostics looked at two different protein biomarkers to find if they could improve early detection.
Researchers have found patients with high-risk prostate cancer who are treated with a high portion of radical local treatment (radiotherapy or prostatectomy) have half the mortality risk of those who were treated with the lowest proportion.
Scientists from the RIKEN Center for Life Science Technology (CLST) have developed a new PET scan that is able to analyze neuron proliferation in the brain's subventricular and subgranular zones of the hippocampal dentate gyrus, the areas most affected by depression.
Oxygen, the air we breathe and the foundation of life, remains mysterious in terms of seeing it working through our tissues. That is until researchers developed a new tool to show us just how oxygen travels to our tissue.
