The findings, published in Scientific Reports, may be particularly helpful for dementia patients, who have been shown to preserve some form of musical memory while most other recollections fade.

“Although this study evaluates a small subset of astronauts, it's significantly larger than any previously published study of its kind involving astronauts or Russian cosmonauts," study author Donna R. Roberts said.

The researchers analyzed 39 consecutive patients with 44 pathologically confirmed cirrhotic nodules who first received a CEUS exam, followed by a traditional follow-up ultrasound every three or four months for their study.

“This technology has incredible potential to improve care, whether it is by better training doctors to perform procedures or helping patients know what to expect when they arrive at the hospital,” Ziv Haskal, creator of the technology said.

Pairing multispectral optoacoustic tomography with ultrasound provided biomarker information that may better diagnose patient's with autoimmune diseases and thyroid nodules.

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 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.
