Images of patients with traumatic head injuries revealed that microbleeds appear in the form of small, dark lesions and may predict worse outcomes, according to a new study published in Brain.

Researchers found measurements performed with their full-scale airway network flow model based on CT imaging data compared similarly to measurements derived from functional lung imaging. In addition to improving COPD analysis, the platform can help shed light on many forms of lung disease.

Differences in brain circuitry may indicate an individual’s risk for suicide, according to a recent fMRI-based study published in Psychological Medicine.

New research utilizing functional MRI (fMRI) has cast doubts on a commonly believed theory about dyslexia, potentially paving the way for new approaches to the learning disorder.

A newly created four-dimensional (4D) virtual catheter technique allows for reproducible, automated estimation of blood flow in patients with congenital bicuspid aortic valve (BAV), reported authors of an Oct. 8 study published in Radiology.

"Income volatility is at a record level since the early 1980s and there is growing evidence that it may have pervasive effects on health," said Adina Zeki Al Hazzouri, PhD, assistant professor of epidemiology at Columbia Mailman School of Public Health.

A new diffusion tensor imaging technique can help predict problems related to dementia in patients with stroke-related small vessel disease, according to research published in Stroke.

German researchers have found that physical fitness can actually improve brain structure and brain functioning in young people, according to a study presented at the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ECNP) Congress in Copenhagen.

A new MRI technique out of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (HUJI) can show the molecular makeup of the brain, potentially helping clinicians diagnose neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s.

Why do some dogs hunt while others herd? The connection between brain structure and function is well-known in both humans and canines, but new research published in the Journal Neuroscience offers new insight into the relationship between innate brain wiring and learned behavior.

Engineers from Duke University have harnessed the power of machine learning to increase the resolution of optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging, according to an Aug. 19 study published in Nature Photonics.

A new three-dimensional (3D) MRI technique can measure strain in the heart without using potentially-damaging gadolinium, according to new research out of the University of Warwick in the U.K.
