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

Published: Thu, 15 Aug 2019 16:04:26 EDT

Researchers have taken a key step forward in developing a new, possibly safer contrast agent for use in MRI exams.

Screening for cervical spine risk factors could reduce CT scans by half

Published: Thu, 15 Aug 2019 12:23:05 EDT

Study finds identifiable risk factors ED staff can use for evaluation, avoiding over 100,000 unnecessary scans annually.

Greater blood pressure control linked to better brain health

Published: Tue, 13 Aug 2019 13:04:35 EDT

For adults with high blood pressure, greater blood pressure control than what's currently considered standard is associated with fewer adverse changes of the brain, which could mean lower risks of dementia and cognitive impairment.

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

Researchers describe minimally invasive new tool for viewing differences in the nasal airways of cystic fibrosis patients in vivo at a cellular level.

Amyloid is a less accurate marker for measuring severity, progression of Alzheimer's

Published: Tue, 06 Aug 2019 12:11:33 EDT

Researchers find fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) PET is a better indicator of cognitive performance when compared to PET scans that detect amyloid protein.

Blood pressure monitoring may one day be easy as taking a video selfie

Published: Tue, 06 Aug 2019 08:34:16 EDT

Future blood pressure monitoring could become as easy as taking a video selfie. Transdermal optical imaging is a smartphone-based technology that accurately measured blood pressure from a video of a person's face in a recent study.
