New AI imaging technique could improve quality, speed—without collecting more data

Researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) have developed a machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI)-based technique that may generate higher quality images without having to collect additional data.

Preoperative axillary ultrasonography can prevent unnecessary lymph node surgery

South Korean researchers found that preoperative axillary ultrasonography (US) can decipher which patients are least at-risk for non-sentinel lymph node (SLN) metastasis—possibly resulting in fewer unnecessary lymph node dissections.

Tissue-clearing method for 3D imaging brain tissue may offer new health, disease insights

A team of international researchers has developed new tissue-clearing protocols for the 3D imaging of human brain tissue that may help answer questions around microstructural anatomy.

How Huntington’s disease alters whole-brain connectivity

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.

Gates Foundation partnership to bring affordable, durable ultrasound to developing countries

Draper, a not-for-profit research and development company, announced an agreement with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to bring ultrasound imaging systems to developing countries to help address high-risk pregnancies.

Augmented reality could turn surgery into 3D experience, increase patient safety

Applying augmented reality (AR) to surgery may ultimately decrease medical errors made both inside and outside the operating room, according to an article published online by Harvard Business Review.

Brain scanner helmet ideal for children who can't keep still

A neuroimaging helmet may be a breakthrough for children with epilepsy, babies or patients with physical disorders, according to a March 21 article published by Reuters.

MRI may help limit unnecessary prostate cancer biopsies in UK

An immediate MRI scan given to all men suspected of having prostate cancer may reduce the number of excessive biopsies by 28 percent, according to a March 19 article from The Telegraph.
