MRI may predict neurological outcomes for cardiac arrest survivors

Published: Wed, 18 Oct 2017 09:02:24 EDT

MRI-based measurements of the functional connections in the brain can help predict long-term recovery in patients who suffer neurological disability after cardiac arrest, according to new research.

Machine learning identifies breast lesions likely to become cancer

Published: Wed, 18 Oct 2017 09:01:35 EDT

A machine learning tool can help identify which high-risk breast lesions are likely to become cancerous, according to a new study. Researchers said the technology has the potential to reduce unnecessary surgeries.

New imaging approach maps whole-brain changes from Alzheimer's disease in mice

Published: Tue, 17 Oct 2017 11:00:34 EDT

A new imaging system that offers a better way to monitor the brain changes indicative of Alzheimer's in mouse models of the disease could help speed new drug development.

'Magic mushrooms' may 'reset' the brains of depressed patients, study suggests

Published: Fri, 13 Oct 2017 09:10:18 EDT

Patients taking psilocybin to treat depression show reduced symptoms weeks after treatment following a 'reset' of their brain activity.

Gold 'nanoprobes' used to track blood flow in tiny vessels

Published: Tue, 10 Oct 2017 20:01:17 EDT

Scientists have designed gold nanoparticles, no bigger than 100 nanometers, which can be coated and used to track blood flow in the smallest blood vessels in the body.

Study challenges long-standing concept in cancer metabolism

Published: Thu, 05 Oct 2017 16:11:29 EDT

Scientists have discovered that lactate provides a fuel for growing tumors, challenging a nearly century-old observation known as the Warburg effect.

Novel PET tracer identifies most bacterial infections

Published: Thu, 05 Oct 2017 11:11:11 EDT

Medical scientists have developed a novel imaging agent that could be used to identify most bacterial infections.

Newborns with congenital heart disease show signs of brain impairment even before cardiac surgery

Published: Thu, 05 Oct 2017 10:27:35 EDT

Using a novel imaging technique, researchers demonstrate for the first time that the brains of high-risk infants with congenital heart disease already show signs of functional impairment even before they undergo corrective open heart surgery.

Brain damage caused by Zika exposure in utero can be detected by both fetal MRI and ultrasound

Published: Wed, 04 Oct 2017 08:49:10 EDT

Magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasound provide complementary data needed to assess ongoing changes to the brains of fetuses exposed to Zika in utero.

New cardiac catheter combines light and ultrasound to measure plaques

Published: Tue, 03 Oct 2017 14:45:09 EDT

Biomedical engineers have combined intravascular ultrasound with fluorescence lifetime imaging in a single catheter probe that can image the tiny arteries of a living heart. The new catheter can simultaneously retrieve structural and biochemical information about arterial plaque that could more reliably predict heart attacks.
