Longer gestation during normal pregnancy is associated with significantly greater development of white matter in babies’ brains. However, similar associations are no longer present by the time children are 8 years old. The lack may confirm that white-matter development in the brains of preemies tends to catch up as these children grow.

The National Sleep Foundation recommends seven to nine hours of shuteye per night for adults between 26 and 64. Using functional MRI, researchers at Japan’s National Institute of Mental Health in Tokyo have shown why getting less often leads to bad moods and poor emotional health.

Following percutaneous interventions for malignant liver lesions, patients are ably assessed with a combination of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) and perfusion-imaging software, according to the authors of a study published online September 25 in Ultraschall in der Medizin/European Journal of Ultrasound.

Researchers have demonstrated an automated bone-removal algorithm that works with dual-energy CT to let physicians see, unobstructed by the skull, what’s going on in the brains of patients with intracranial hemorrhage following head trauma.

A task force convened by the International Association for the Study of Pain is warning against the use of neuroimaging in legal cases involving patients who claim they’re living with chronic pain.

A new study featuring 3D CT imaging has shown how bird skulls evolve differently than relatives and ancestors. Instead, they develop more like young dinosaurs and crocodiles.

Functional MRI shows cognitive rehab aiding mildly impaired elderly minds

The cognitive therapy called Attention Process Training-II (APT-II) provides worthwhile benefits to elderly patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) who have cerebral small vessel disease and are therefore at heightened risk for dementia.

Ultrasound, other tests point to chronic shoulder problems for swimmers

The finding isn’t likely to sway Katie Ledecky or other swimmers from training for the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, but a small study at Henry Ford Health System in Detroit has shown that long competitive careers in the pool can saddle these athletes with chronically reduced mechanical properties in muscles and tendons of the shoulder, heightening the likelihood of rotator cuff damage.

Brain MRI just one ‘algorithm feeder’ for new Alzheimer’s calculator

Researchers at Case Western Reserve University have demonstrated a machine-learning algorithm that combines neuroimaging with neurophysiological, proteomic and genomic diagnostics to predict Alzheimer’s disease early on in its advance.
