Recent study findings from Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) researchers may increase the number of stroke patients who can safely be treated with tissue plasminogen activator (tPA ), or alteplase, according to an MGH release.
Researchers at CalTech are developing "erasable" contrast agents that can "blink off" on command during an MRI to reveal their exact location inside the body, according to an April 25 press release from the California Institute of Technology.
A sinus infection is no fun for most—but when 7-year-old Layla, a 2,300-pound black rhinoceros, was suffering from the condition, veterinarians needed a better understanding of her skull to guide treatment.
A team of researchers out of China found the CT-based radiomic signature of primary tumors can be used to quantitatively and noninvasively predict the spread of a common form of lung cancer to lymph nodes.
A group of Dutch researchers found a general practitioner’s MRI referral for patients with traumatic knee symptoms led to increased healthcare costs without any improvement in outcomes, according to a study published in Radiology.
Neurological and psychiatric disorders may be diagnosed through functional connectivity MRI (fcMRI) by detecting differences in neural networks, according to a release from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.
Frederik Barkhof, MD, PhD, a professor of neuroradiology at VU University Medical Center in Amsterdam, has won the 2018 John Dystel Prize for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Research for his work using MRI to improve diagnosis and understanding of the disease.
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.
The American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) released an update to its clinical guideline for the use of palliative-intent radiation therapy for patients with incurable non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
Researchers in the U.K. are preparing to study whether an MRI can be used to diagnose prostate cancer in men earlier and more accurately than prostate-specific antigen (PSA) tests, which could potentially replace prostate biopsies, according to a release from the Medical Research Council in the U.K.
By 2030, some 3.5 million Americans are expected to be living with total knee replacements. The price of performing total-knee arthroplasty (TKA) revision surgery continues to rise, costing 60 percent more than the initial replacement. Researchers set out to identify a more cost-effective method.
New research has found that brains of preschoolers who show symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) may have smaller brains and differences in neural connectivity compared to their peers.
Gordon Memorial Hospital in Sheridan County, Nebraska, recently added a digital x-ray machine, and two years ago bought a CT scanner. Since then, diagnosis and overall care has been steadily improving, the Scottsbluff StarHerald reports.
Researchers have linked specific gene mutations and brain function in Huntington’s disease (HD) patients by comparing trinucleotide (CAG) repeats with whole-brain connectivity via functional MRI (fMRI). Examining disease carriers and health controls, the researchers found CAG repeat length inversely correlates with an individual’s age at onset.
A new portable brain imaging system developed at the University of Calgary in Canada uses infrared light sensors and computational assistance to determine the extent of damage and long-term consequences of concussions, according to a recent university news release.
