The Penn PET Addiction Center of Excellence (PACE) will harness the minds of radiology and psychiatry researchers to better understand opioid use disorder and develop improvement treatment options.

A novel blood test can identify mild traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) that don’t exhibit normal concussive symptoms on CT scans, according to new research published Aug. 23 in The Lancet Neurology.

A new paper published in Neurophotonics details improvements made to near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS)-based imaging that may enhance brain imaging research.

"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.
