Molecular Imaging

 

Physical activity sustains gray matter volume in the brain of older adults, according to recent findings from Rush University Medical Center researchers in Chicago.  

Researchers from King's College London's Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience and the University of Roehampton in London have found a way to suppress verbal hallucinations in individuals with schizophrenia through video games. 

Researchers from the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center used 3D imaging to show molecular transactions that occur during the earliest stages of pregnancy, according to a recent Cincinnati Children's release.  

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced it has approved domestic production of technetium-99m (Tc-99m), the most commonly used radioactive imaging isotopes.

The sound of music can speak to one's soul in myriad ways. Musical genres can also affect the brain in varying ways.

Molecular imaging may streamline drug development, reduce costs

Cancer drug development is rapidly expanding. Although crucial for treatment, it also eats up healthcare dollars and resources. A study published in the Journal of Nuclear Medicine found molecular imaging can play a role in providing critical information to develop these drugs and potentially save money spent on failed clinical trials.

Radiologic technologists more exposed to cataracts risk from nuclear medicine
