Kamran Avanaki, PhD, will use the money to continue developing a point-of-care, 3D neonatal imaging system.

The findings may offer new targets for researching and treating patients with the condition.

Scientists from New Mexico-based Los Alamos National Laboratory believe their work could pave the way for new strategies in regenerative medicine for heart conditions.

Achieving a quality MRI of a patient’s head is difficult, but a radial gradient-recalled echo imaging protocol is a step in the right direction, researchers wrote Jan. 8 in the American Journal of Roentgenology.

The new approach can diagnose brain tumors similarly to humans, but in a fraction of the time.

The laser-based method produces the same quality images as conventional ultrasound, but may benefit patients, such as burn victims, who can't tolerate direct skin contact.

The concept derives image-based biomarkers from MRI scans to produce a heat map for surgeons to better pinpoint cancers.

More than 6.1 million children were diagnosed with ADHD in 2016. Despite these numbers, there is no single test or imaging exam that can confidently diagnose a patient.

Duke researchers have used micro CT to peer deep into medicine’s past.

Infants exposed to such drug use suffer from withdrawal when they are born, also called neonatal abstinence syndrome. The condition requires lengthy hospital stays with severe situations calling for opioid treatment.

Brain regions that had been dedicated to more specific tasks adapted to take on more general functions, according to a report from the New York Times.

A pair of Penn researchers will scan 100 awake 3-5 year old children, comparing the quality of traditional MRI methods to those taken using a motion-correction technology to better understand the connection between opioids and brain development.
