Artificial intelligence may fall short when analyzing data across multiple health systems

Published: Fri, 09 Nov 2018 10:14:11 EST

A new study shows deep learning models must be carefully tested across multiple environments before being put into clinical practice.

Hypertonic saline may help babies with cystic fibrosis breathe better

Published: Fri, 09 Nov 2018 07:30:59 EST

Babies with cystic fibrosis may breathe better by inhaling hypertonic saline, according to a randomized controlled trial conducted in Germany.

Healing kidneys with nanotechnology

Published: Thu, 08 Nov 2018 14:23:15 EST

Researchers have developed a new method for treating and preventing acute kidney injury. Their technique involves the use of tiny, self-assembling forms measuring just billionths of a meter in diameter.

Traditional glaucoma test can miss severity of disease

Published: Thu, 08 Nov 2018 11:17:50 EST

The most common test for glaucoma can underestimate the severity of the condition by not detecting the presence of central vision loss, also known as macular degeneration, according to a new study.

How beatboxers produce sound: Using real-time MRI to understand

Published: Wed, 07 Nov 2018 17:29:01 EST

Beatboxing is a musical art form in which performers use their vocal tract to create percussive sounds, and a team of researchers is using real-time MRI to study the production of beatboxing sounds.

Ultrasound releases drug to alter activity in targeted brain areas in rats

Published: Wed, 07 Nov 2018 11:18:50 EST

Scientists have developed a noninvasive way of delivering drugs to within a few millimeters of a desired point in the brain. The method, tested in rats, uses focused ultrasound to jiggle drug molecules loose from nanoparticle 'cages' that have been injected into the bloodstream.

Artificial intelligence predicts Alzheimer's years before diagnosis

Published: Tue, 06 Nov 2018 10:42:49 EST

Artificial intelligence (AI) technology improves the ability of brain imaging to predict Alzheimer's disease, according to a new study.

Chronic exposure to excess noise may increase risk for heart disease, stroke

Published: Mon, 05 Nov 2018 08:17:49 EST

Exposure to environmental noise appears to increase the risk of heart attacks and strokes by fueling the activity of a brain region involved in stress response.

Genetic factors tied to obesity may protect against diabetes

Published: Fri, 02 Nov 2018 10:59:59 EDT

Some genetic variations associated with obesity actually protect against Type 2 diabetes, heart attack and stroke, new findings suggest.

High-resolution MRI imaging inspired by the humble antenna

Published: Wed, 31 Oct 2018 14:15:05 EDT

Radio frequency (RF) probes designed like by microstrip patch antennas create uniform and strong magnetic field in high frequency MRI machines, unlike convention coil and bird cage shaped coils used today. These probes also showed smaller radiation losses, making them competitive, even advantageous to conventional methods.
