Tiny lensless endoscope captures 3D images of objects smaller than a cell

Published: Thu, 15 Aug 2019 18:06:31 EDT

Researchers have developed a new self-calibrating endoscope that produces 3D images of objects smaller than a single cell. Without a lens or any optical, electrical or mechanical components, the tip of the endoscope measures just 200 microns across, about the width of a few human hairs twisted together.

Non-invasive electrical stimulation alters blood flow in brain tumors

Published: Thu, 15 Aug 2019 16:04:29 EDT

Scientists demonstrated that applying low-intensity electrical stimulation to the brains of patients with tumors resulted in decreased blood flow within tumors while leaving the rest of the brain unchanged. Although further study is needed, the findings suggest that a series of such treatments could modify tumor growth and progression.

New contrast agent could make MRIs safer

Evaluating blood flow is key to early diagnosis and treatment for people with critical limb ischemia

Published: Mon, 12 Aug 2019 07:55:18 EDT

The strengths and limitations of non-invasive and other imaging techniques used to diagnose critical limb ischemia are reviewed in a new statement. Sex and ethnic disparities exist in the diagnosis and treatment of critical limb ischemia.

Two-in-one contrast agent for medical imaging

Published: Thu, 08 Aug 2019 10:03:47 EDT

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) visualizes internal body structures, often with the help of contrast agents to enhance sensitivity. Scientists have now developed a bimodal contrast agent suited for two imaging techniques at once, namely, MRI and a technique called photoacoustic imaging. The use of only one contrast agent for two imaging techniques improves the sensitivity of both, with only little impact on the patient's body.

New intra-nasal imaging to study airways in patients with cystic fibrosis

Published: Wed, 07 Aug 2019 14:22:45 EDT

'Sniff-cam' to detect disease by analyzing bad breath

Published: Wed, 31 Jul 2019 12:54:26 EDT

Having bad breath can mean someone ate a smelly lunch, but it could indicate that the person is sick. Various scent compounds have been linked to illnesses such as diabetes, lung cancer and Parkinson's disease, leading scientists to develop technology that measures these substances. However, the challenge is creating instrumentation that can detect low, diagnostic levels of these disease biomarkers. Now, scientists report a highly sensitive 'sniff-cam' that fits the bill.

Lymph nodes can predict survival in patients with esophageal cancer

Published: Mon, 29 Jul 2019 11:12:47 EDT

It is difficult for physicians to estimate recurrence and survival in patients with esophageal cancer. Researchers have found that the response of lymph nodes, as opposed to that of primary tumors, to neoadjuvant chemotherapy is more effective in predicting disease recurrence and patient survival in individuals with metastatic esophageal cancer. This finding is likely to enhance the accuracy of predictions regarding treatment outcome, and may lead to improved treatment approaches.
