Researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee have used a new imaging technique to visualize cellular damage to the retina caused by diabetes. The method, tested in a mouse model, may aid in understanding diabetic retinopathy—a leading cause of blindness.
German researchers have developed a new method for creating three-dimensional (3D) images of cells that utilizes photoacoustic imaging and a phytochrome protein to provide in vivo looks at tumor growth.
MRI, for all it can do, has many design limitations—but an NYU School of Medicine team recently created an MRI device that users can slip on like a glove to produce high quality images of moving joints.
A group at Vanderbilt University in Nashville is developing a helmet that would use ultrasound brain technology to produce real-time images with novel implications for surgery guidance and robotics, according to a university press release.
A team of U.S. researchers utilized brain imaging to find problems in white matter connectivity in infants with the genetic neurodevelopment disorder Fragile X syndrome (FXS), pointing to the areas as possible targets for intervention.
A team of researchers found that postmortem computed tomography (CT) angiography detects more lesions in a human corpse than a standard CT or autopsy examination, according to a forensic multicenter study published May 1 in Radiology.
The emergence of advanced breast screening technologies has helped lower mortality rates. But some question if existing disparities among vulnerable populations will only get worse, according to a recent study published in the May issue of Academic Radiology.
3D ultrasound (US) was determined to be as accurate as 2D US in diagnosing development dysplasia of the hip (DDH), a recent study found, with the 3D variety reducing the need for follow-up imaging by more than two-thirds.
A group of researchers at Thomas Jefferson University utilized super-resolution live-cell microscopy to visualize connections between neurons strengthening in real-time that produced structural changes in the brain.
Contrast-enhanced subharmonic imaging (SHI)—a new technique for imaging of microbubble ultrasound contrast agents—detected prostate cancers not identified by traditional MRI, according to a recent study presented at the American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS) 2018 Annual Meeting.
Researchers at MIT and Massachusetts General Hospital found indocyanine green, an FDA-approved and commercially available fluorescent dye, ideal in short-wave infrared (SWIR) imaging—a discovery that may allow clinicians to create clearer biological images, MIT News reports.
Researchers from the University of Southern California (USC) Viterbi School of Engineering are making radiofrequency ablation safer and faster with real-time thermal imaging and an associated probe device, according to a recent USC news release.
Researchers from New York and California recently used MRI to determine prenatal exposure to commonly used antidepressants in pregnant women may be associated with impacted fetal brain development—particularly in areas crucial to emotions.
A team of international researchers published a study in Radiology that found surface regularity taken from high-resolution contrast-enhanced pretreatment volumetric T1-weighted MRIs to be an accurate predictor of survival in patients with specific malignant brain or spine tumors.
A team of physicists in China has used ghost imaging to make detailed x-ray images they claim has lowered the radiation dose by a “million times" compared to previous attempts using the technique, Science Magazine reports.
