Biologist leads pioneering study on stress

Published: Fri, 19 Jul 2019 17:35:47 EDT

A biologist conducted a pioneering research study that could help us to better understand the role of dopamine in stress resilience in humans through analyzing wild songbirds. This study could lead to increased prevention and treatment of stress-related disorders.

Low doses of radiation promote cancer-capable cells

Published: Thu, 18 Jul 2019 15:09:33 EDT

New research finds that low doses of radiation equivalent to three CT scans, which are considered safe, give cancer-capable cells a competitive advantage over normal cells.

A single measurement may help determine kneecap instability risk

Published: Wed, 17 Jul 2019 10:52:49 EDT

Knee injuries can be a scourge to collegiate and pro athletes alike, but Penn State researchers say a single measurement taken by a clinician may help predict whether a person is at risk for knee instability.

Ultrasound-assisted optical imaging to replace endoscopy in breakthrough discovery

Published: Wed, 17 Jul 2019 09:03:42 EDT

New research introduces a novel technique which uses ultrasound to noninvasively take optical images through a turbid medium such as biological tissue to image body's organs. This new method has the potential to eliminate the need for invasive visual exams using endoscopic cameras.

How artificial intelligence can be used to more quickly and accurately diagnose breast cancer

Published: Fri, 12 Jul 2019 15:19:28 EDT

Breast ultrasound elastography is an emerging imaging technique used by doctors to help diagnose breast cancer by evaluating a lesion's stiffness in a non-invasive way. Researchers identified the critical role machine learning can play in making this technique more efficient and accurate in diagnosis.

Arthroscopy more effective than MRI for chondral defects of the knee

Published: Thu, 11 Jul 2019 15:17:10 EDT

Using arthroscopy to stage a lesion in the chondral area of the knee is more accurate than magnetic resonance imaging, according to researchers.

Light touch to improve rheumatoid arthritis diagnosis

Published: Mon, 08 Jul 2019 20:18:31 EDT

A new way of detecting rheumatoid arthritis using infrared light could offer an objective way of diagnosing the disease and monitoring treatment effectiveness, a new study shows.

New probe could help surgeons more accurately remove tumours

Published: Mon, 08 Jul 2019 17:24:27 EDT

A new study has the potential to help surgeons more accurately remove tumors and detect cancer in lymph nodes during surgery.

Gadolinium deposition occurs in early MS

Published: Mon, 08 Jul 2019 17:24:10 EDT

A commonly used imaging linear contrast agent, gadodiamide, does accumulate in the brain early in MS but there is no discernible clinical impact.

On the way to nanotheranostics: Diagnosing and treating diseases simultaneously

Published: Mon, 08 Jul 2019 13:12:03 EDT

Nanotheranostics is a cutting-edge field of medicine that uses nanoparticles to simultaneously diagnose and treat diseases. Chemical engineers have now developed a novel nanotheranostic system that uses tunable light to activate or image nanoparticles, thus opening a new path for the field.
