Doctors involved in the study, who presented during the Society of Interventional Radiology's virtual meeting, say the augmented-reality platform can help physicians and patients better understand their treatment.

With further refinement, the researchers say their convolutional neural network-based platform could help lighten sonographers’ ever-increasing workloads.

Clinicians use the device to image blood flow dynamics during retinal exams, helping them spot age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and retinal vein occlusions.

The technique—known as 3D cartilage surface mapping—detects subtle changes in a person’s knee joint that cannot be picked up via conventional x-ray or MRI.

Among more than 6,500 older adults, those with smaller pathways relative to lung size had the poorest lung function and were eight times more likely to develop the disease, researchers reported in JAMA.

"This whole sub-branch of fMRI could go extinct if we can't address this critical limitation," said one expert who has dedicated much of his professional research to the field in question.

With such a model, clinicians can implement preemptive measures for higher risk patients, experts wrote in Academic Radiology.

Colorado State University and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign teamed up to develop the harmonic optical tomography approach.

Altered mental state and stroke were the most common findings, which may help physicians better understand how the disease impacts the central nervous system.

The findings published Friday may help researchers develop new screening mechanisms to identify children who are at risk for the disorder and similar conditions.

Tauvid was developed by Avid Radiopharmaceuticals, a subsidiary of Eli Lilly, and offers clinicians a new type of brain scan to use in patients being evaluated for Alzheimer's disease.

It's all part of Georgia State University's imaging innovation hub designed to unite digital imaging research from across the institution.
