New GoPro For Studies Of Brain Disease In Living Mice

Working with mice, a team of Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers has developed a relatively inexpensive, portable mini microscope that could improve scientists’ ability to image the effects of cancer, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease and other conditions in the brains of living and active mice over time. The device; which measures less than 5 cubic centimeters, is…

Ultrasonography Does Not Improve Breast Cancer Detection

Rates of breast-cancer detection are similar after screening mammography with or without screening ultrasonography, according to an observational study. Several states have mandated insurance coverage for screening ultrasonography in women with dense breasts, but the effect of supplemental screening on breast cancer outcomes remains unclear. Screening mammography Dr. Janie M. Lee from Seattle Cancer Care…

Internal View Of Patient Anatomy During Treatment

Immersive virtual reality (VR) may enable interventional radiologists to improve treatments using real-time 3-D images from inside a patient’s blood vessels. New research presented today at the Society of Interventional Radiology’s 2019 Annual Scientific Meeting shows that the interactive technology could provide faster; more efficient treatment, with less radiation exposure and greater precision, ease and…

New Technique Measures Frequency Of Sounds

Did you know that music and diagnostic imaging have something in common? Sounds have a lower or higher pitch depending on the size of the object that creates them. Tubas and double basses are big and produce deep low-pitch sounds; while flutes and violins are small and produce high-pitched sounds. What’s interesting is that the…

Nano scale Protein Micelles Can Tracked By MRI

A team of researchers from New York University has engineered nanoscale protein micelles capable of both delivering chemotherapeutic drugs and of being tracked by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The innovation falls into the category of “theranostics,” meaning that it combines diagnostic capability and drug delivery, allowing researchers to administer therapy while also non-invasively monitoring the…

Ultrasound Serve as An Early Bone Density Screening Tool

A small study has suggested that ultrasound of the heel bone could be a reasonable alternative to dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) to distinguish individuals with low bone mineral density (BMD). “Using ultrasound to scan the heel won’t give us all the information we could gather with a full DEXA scan,” lead author Carolyn Komar, PhD,…

New Ways To Treat Musculoskeletal Pain

A new study led by The University of Western Australia has identified 11 recommendations to help health professionals and patients better manage musculoskeletal problems. The study comes after the team found many musculoskeletal problems were not being managed effectively. Musculoskeletal conditions including back and neck pain, osteoarthritis and shoulder pain affect nearly 7 million Australians with around…

Use Of Ultrasound To Inflammatory And Metabolic Response

GE Research and Feinstein Institute for Medical Research bio electronic medicine teams have demonstrated potentially breakthrough non-invasive methods to regulate dysfunction in the body’s metabolic or inflammatory control systems using ultrasound. Because The findings were reported in this week’s edition of Nature Communications. This article follows a medical first from The Feinstein Institute and GE…

A Peek Into Lymph Nodes

The vast majority of cancer deaths occur due to the spread of cancer from one organ to another, which can happen either through the blood or the lymphatic system. However, it can be tricky to detect this early enough. Researchers at Tohoku University have developed a new method that would allow doctors to detect cancers…

Iron Measurements With MRI Reveal Stroke's Impact

A simple MRI method that measures iron content can provide a more comprehensive picture of the consequences of stroke-related damage to the brain, according to a study published in the journal Radiology. Researchers said the findings point to a role for MRI brain iron measurements in monitoring recovery from stroke. Complex networks. Strokes can result in…

CT Scans Used In Cancer Diagnostics Provide Valuable Clues

An imaging procedure commonly performed before starting cancer treatment can provide valuable clues about a patient’s risk for heart problems in the months and years after treatment. However, this information is not always report and is rarely act upon in current practice; according to research being present at the American College of Cardiology’s 68th Annual…
