"These products are advertised as not harmful, and many e-cigarette users are convinced that they are just inhaling water vapor," said researchers in a recent article published by Radiology.

Grey matter atrophy impacts localized brain regions that are functionally connected in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS), according to a new study published in Clinical Radiology. The results may serve as a framework for developing imaging biomarkers.

A team of researchers backed by a division within the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has created a novel MRI technique that can image a thinking brain 60-times faster than traditional methods.

A season of football can significantly damage a player’s brain, even if they did not experience a concussion. The results bolster evidence that suggests even repeated hits to the head can cause impactful brain damage.

“We hope these results will help test the effectiveness of new therapies for this form of MS and reduce the suffering patients experience,” said lead author of the study published in JAMA Neurology.

A recent fMRI-based study found that learning via electronic devices such as smartphones or tablets can inhibit the brain’s ability to understand scientific texts, according to a recent study published by Scientific Reports.

A commonly prescribed drug used to treat attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) disproportionately affects the development of children’s brains compared to adults with ADHD, according to a new study published in Radiology.

Physicians who used ultrasound to guide the placement of intravenous (IV) lines in young patients had better first-attempt success rates than those who used traditional methods, according to a study published in the July issue of Annals of Emergency Medicine.

MRI and CT scans of infants exposed to the Zika virus in the womb revealed a range of brain abnormalities, reported authors of a recent study published in JAMA Network Open. The findings place neuroimaging as an important step in evaluating such patients.

Increasing daily physical activity may help older adults delay their progression to Alzheimer’s disease (AD), according to research published July 16 in JAMA Neurology.  

“Our multicenter study found that 4D flow MRI provided a promising way of measuring blood flow in the superior and inferior caval veins and right heart, which may provide further insight into physiologic and pathologic blood flow patterns in individuals with COPD and emphysema,” wrote researchers in a July 24 Radiology study.

New research published July 23 in JAMA reported neurological differences in several areas of the brain, including white matter volume, among U.S. government personnel involved in a 2016 auditory attack in Cuba compared to healthy controls.
