Medical Imaging News -- ScienceDaily

Low doses of radiation used in medical imaging lead to mutations in cell cultures

Published: Thu, 16 Jan 2020 14:17:31 EST

Common medical imaging procedures use low doses of radiation that are believed to be safe. A new study, however, finds that in human cell cultures, these doses create breaks that allow extra bits of DNA to integrate into the chromosome.

Peering into the genome of brain tumor

Published: Thu, 09 Jan 2020 10:08:23 EST

Scientists have created a machine learning method for classifying the mutations of glioma brain tumors based on MR images alone. Thus far, classification has only been possible by tissue sampling during surgery. The new method is noninvasive, may remove the need for a tissue sample and help accelerate delivery of treatment for patients.

Children frequently receive unnecessary medical care regardless of insurance type

Published: Tue, 07 Jan 2020 16:50:48 EST

Children with public insurance are slightly more likely to receive medical services that they don't need than those with private insurance, a new study finds.

Scientists capture for first time, light flashes from human eye during radiotherapy

Published: Tue, 07 Jan 2020 14:23:09 EST

People have long reported seeing flashes of light during brain radiotherapy. Until now, no one has been able to capture evidence of this sensation in humans, and only theory, models, and speculation exist to explain it. Scientists, for the first time, have not only caught real-time observation of this phenomenon, but explain how the light is produced in the eye when radiation passes through it.

False negatives: Delayed Zika effects in babies who appeared normal at birth

Published: Mon, 06 Jan 2020 22:24:59 EST

Colombian infants exposed to Zika virus in the womb showed neurodevelopmental delays as toddlers, despite having 'normal' brain imaging and head circumference at birth, a finding that underscores the importance of long-term neurodevelopmental follow-up for Zika-exposed infants.

New radiotracer offers opportunities for earlier intervention after heart attack

Published: Thu, 02 Jan 2020 18:48:27 EST

A new radiotracer can effectively image fibroblast activation after a heart attack, identifying a window of time during which cardiac fibrosis can be prevented and the disease course altered.

Alzheimer 'tau' protein far surpasses amyloid in predicting toll on brain tissue

Published: Wed, 01 Jan 2020 14:40:12 EST

The results support researchers' growing recognition that tau drives brain degeneration in Alzheimer's disease more directly than amyloid protein, and at the same time demonstrates the potential of recently developed tau-based PET (positron emission tomography) brain imaging technology to accelerate Alzheimer's clinical trials and improve individualized patient care.

Super-resolution at all scales with active thermal detection

Published: Mon, 23 Dec 2019 12:29:05 EST

A research team found the temperature increase caused by the probe beam could be utilized to generate a signal per se for detecting objects. Notably, this so-called 'active thermal detection' enables super-resolution imaging at all scales.

Researchers produce first laser ultrasound images of humans

Published: Fri, 20 Dec 2019 15:05:53 EST

Engineers have come up with an alternative to conventional ultrasound that doesn't require contact with the body to see inside a patient. The new laser ultrasound technique leverages an eye- and skin-safe laser system to remotely image the inside of a person.

Possible link between cannabis use and structural changes to heart

Published: Wed, 18 Dec 2019 15:35:11 EST

Regular cannabis use could affect the structure and function of the heart.
