Unpacking the Mysteries of Beatboxing

On the screen, a grainy MRI scan of a human mouth shows a tongue, leaping and curling as a sound like a snare drum rings out. This is a beatboxer in action viewed from a new perspective: inside her mouth. Once heard, never forgotten, beatboxing is a form of vocal percussion in which humans mimic…

Imaging Technique Uses a Single Pixel To Fill Terahertz Blind Spot

Images of the world at radio, microwave, infrared, visible, and x-ray frequencies But there is a blind spot in this spectrum. The technology is still in its infancy to detect radiation with a wavelength of between 1 and 0.3 millimeters and a frequency of about a terahertz. The equipment that can detect such radiation is…

New Imaging Technology Improve Embryonic Development

Soon after conception, an embryo’s circulatory system connects to that of its mother. Complications that occur at this critical time can result in miscarriage or birth defects with long-term chronic conditions. Unfortunately, limitations in imaging technologies prevent researchers from fully understanding the cellular-level events leading up to this crucial point. Developing a new technology Researchers…

PET Imaging Improves MCI, Dementia Diagnoses

Amyloid positron emission tomography (PET) imaging in patients with suspected mild cognitive impairment (MCI) or dementia results in more accurate diagnoses and alters patient management; results of a large, longitudinal study show. Overall, investigators found physicians altered treatment for about 62% of these patients following PET imaging  a percentage well in excess of the pre-specified 30%. Cognitive impairment…

Stargazing Technology Used to Spot Cancer

Cancers are often missed on traditional 2-D X-rays so are sometimes only discovered later when the disease is more advanced and difficult to treat. Now experts have been granted £1 million of UK Space Agency funding, following a competition to celebrate the NHS’ 70th birthday, to develop a pioneering portable 3-D medical X-ray machine; based…

New Imaging Method for First Time On Human Patients

A new study by biomedical engineering researchers at the University of Arkansas could significantly improve methods for detecting and diagnosing congenital heart disease in infants and small children. The researchers, collaborating with cardiologists at Arkansas Children’s Hospital in Little Rock, tested a new ultrasound technology called vector flow imaging for the first time on pediatric…

CT Scans Might Prevent Heart Problems After Cancer Treatment

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…

Artificial Intelligence Improve X-ray Identification Of Pacemakers

Researchers have created new artificial intelligence software that can identify cardiac rhythm devices in x-rays more accurately and quickly than current methods. The team believes this software could speed up the diagnosis and treatment of patients with faulty devices in an emergency setting. The software, created by researchers at Imperial College London, has been able to…
