New biomarker assay detects neuroblastoma with greater sensitivity

Published: Thu, 22 Jun 2017 14:30:37 EDT

Investigators have developed and tested a new biomarker assay for quantifying disease and detecting the presence of neuroblastoma even when standard evaluations yield negative results for the disease. Researchers provide the first systematic comparison of standard imaging evaluations versus the new assay that screens for five different neuroblastoma-associated genes and determine that the new assay improves disease assessment and provides prediction of disease progression.

Does MRI plus mammography improve detection of new breast cancer after breast conservation therapy?

Published: Thu, 22 Jun 2017 12:19:38 EDT

A new article compares outcomes for combined mammography and MRI or ultrasonography screenings for new breast cancers in women who have previously undergone breast conservation surgery and radiotherapy for breast cancer initially diagnosed at 50 or younger.

Alzheimer's disease study links brain health, physical activity

Published: Thu, 22 Jun 2017 10:38:18 EDT

People at risk for Alzheimer's disease who do more moderate-intensity physical activity, but not light-intensity physical activity, are more likely to have healthy patterns of glucose metabolism in their brain, according to a new study.

New spectral eye video database SPEED revolutionizes eye-tracking

Published: Thu, 22 Jun 2017 08:28:21 EDT

Techniques to acquire spectral data have been static for a long time - until now. Exciting and novel spectral video technologies are emerging, allowing us to extract increasingly dynamic knowledge from light. Using a spectral video device in eye-tracking, computational spectral imaging and eye-tracking researchers have created a novel - first of its kind - combined spectral video/spectral image database: the SPectral Eye vidEo Database, SPEED.

New technique makes brain scans better

Published: Wed, 21 Jun 2017 12:53:21 EDT

To help scientists take advantage of huge numbers of low-quality patient brain scans, a team of researchers has devised a way to boost the quality of these MRI scans so that they can be used for large scale studies of how strokes affect different people.

Diagnosing obesity by mathematically estimating abdominal fat

Published: Tue, 20 Jun 2017 09:32:13 EDT

Abdominal obesity, or fat that accumulates around one's stomach and abdomen, has long been considered to pose a high health risk in individuals. Hence, measurement of abdominal fat helps predict propensity to disorders caused by excess weight in the abdominal area. In a new paper, researchers propose a new technique to evaluate abdominal obesity by estimating the thickness of subcutaneous fat.

Nanoparticle based contrast agent developed for dual modal imaging of cancer

Published: Tue, 20 Jun 2017 09:31:21 EDT

Dual modal imaging which shares the advantages of two imaging modalities such as magnetic resonance imaging and optical imaging, has the ability to produce images with higher spatial resolution and higher sensitivity. Contrast agents having both magnetic and optical properties identifies the cancer cells efficiently. Europium doped gadolinium oxide nanorods were synthesized and subsequently coated with silica to improve the biocompatibility.

Why is one twin smaller than the other? Answer could lie in the placenta

Published: Fri, 16 Jun 2017 08:37:13 EDT

When a baby is born small, it's often attributed to genetic factors or maternal risk factors like poor nutrition or smoking. But a twin study now finds that slower transport of oxygen from mother to baby across the placenta predicts slower fetal growth, as well as a smaller brain and liver.

Why do those with autism avoid eye contact?

Published: Thu, 15 Jun 2017 21:32:52 EDT
