The Butterfly Network, makers of the innovative iPhone ultrasound-on-chip named Butterfly iQ, announced it has raised $250 million to start shipping to 40 million healthcare practitioners globally, according to a report published Sept. 26 by Business Insider.

For patients with wrist movement abnormalities, four-dimensional CT imaging during radioulnar deviation could improve diagnosis of suspected scapholunate ligament tears and injuries, according to research published online Sept. 25 in Radiology.

Swedish researchers have used a novel CT imaging technique to study the soft tissue of an ancient Egyptian mummy’s hand at microscopic levels, according to a Sept. 25 study published in Radiology.

MRI scans produce mounds of unused data. Now, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have created a new method of utilizing that information to determine how many and where cells have been lost due to injury or disease.

Novel computer simulations of the female body developed by researchers from Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana, may help predict how more than 20 different breast tissue ratios will respond to MRI varying in radiofrequency.

Chinese researchers developed a flexible photoacoustic imaging technique by modifying fiber optic sensors and combining laser light and ultrasound to image biological tissue, detailed in a release from The Optical Society.

Researchers from Tel Aviv University in Israel created a new microscopy method that utilizes an add-on for laser scanning microscopes to improve the quality of 2D and 3D brain imaging, according to research published Sept. 13 in Optica.

Engineers from the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Canada who developed a new ultrasound transducer say it could lower the cost of ultrasound machines to just $100. The probe is portable, wearable and can be powered by a smartphone.

Brain MRI scans of concussed university hockey players showed the protective tissue insulating brain cell fibers became jarred loose two weeks after injury—despite being cleared to return, research published in the Frontiers in Neurology revealed.

A new algorithm that can automatically map CT scan locations of patients on computational human phantoms may trump manual mapping techniques for patient dose monitoring, clinical trials and epidemiologic studies, detailed a study published online Sept. 5 in the Journal of Digital Imaging.

Why do some people feel more pain than others? Using fMRI, researchers at Wake Forest School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, found the answer may lie in mindfulness, according to recent research published in PAIN.

Medical imaging may reach a higher dimension with the development of a compact hyperspectral imaging system able to measure an object’s shape and light reflection properties through so-called "5D," high-speed imaging.
