Sometimes, a non-invasive procedure will suffice

Published: Tue, 25 Jun 2019 18:19:43 EDT

When a patient complains about chest pain, diagnosis will usually involve catheter angiography to evaluate the adequacy of blood supply to the heart. Researchers have now established that, in certain cases, the diagnostic reliability of non-invasive coronary computed tomography (CT) angiography is as good as that of coronary angiography - thereby dispensing with the need for invasive procedures.

Interim scan during prostate cancer therapy helps guide treatment

Published: Mon, 24 Jun 2019 16:11:53 EDT

New prostate cancer research shows that adding an interim scan during therapy can help guide a patient's treatment. Prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) positron emission tomography (PET) imaging of patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer after two cycles of lutetium-177 (177Lu)-PSMA radioligand therapy has shown a significant predictive value for patient survival.

Non-invasive view into the heart

Published: Mon, 24 Jun 2019 11:14:52 EDT

The non-invasive measurement of blood flow to the heart using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is on par with cardiac catheterization.

Scientists discover new method for developing tracers used for medical imaging

Published: Thu, 20 Jun 2019 15:35:05 EDT

Researchers discovered a method for creating radioactive tracers to better track pharmaceuticals in the body as well as image diseases, such as cancer, and other medical conditions.

A miniature robot that could check colons for early signs of disease

Published: Wed, 19 Jun 2019 14:25:23 EDT

Engineers have shown it is technically possible to guide a tiny robotic capsule inside the colon to take micro-ultrasound images. Known as a Sonopill, the device could one day replace the need for patients to undergo an endoscopic examination, where a semi-rigid scope is passed into the bowel - an invasive procedure that can be painful.

Antidepressants can reduce empathy for those in pain

Published: Tue, 18 Jun 2019 10:37:18 EDT

Depression is a disorder that often comes along with strong impairments of social functioning. Until recently, researchers assumed that acute episodes of depression also impair empathy, an essential skill for successful social interactions and understanding others. Novel insights show that antidepressant treatment can lead to impaired empathy regarding perception of pain, and not just the state of depression itself.

New imaging modality targets cholesterol in arterial plaque

Published: Thu, 13 Jun 2019 12:37:11 EDT

Researchers demonstrate a new imaging modality that successfully identifies the presence of cholesterol in the arterial plaque.

Increase in resolution, scale takes CT scanning and diagnosis to the next level

Published: Thu, 13 Jun 2019 10:31:38 EDT

Researchers have developed a new, 3D tissue imaging technique, called X-ray histotomography. The technique allows researchers to study the details of cells in a zebrafish tissue sample without having to cut it into slices.

Promising treatment for shoulder pain in wheelchair users with spinal cord injury

Published: Wed, 12 Jun 2019 14:13:58 EDT

Researchers have reported the first case of successful, long-term relief of chronic refractory shoulder pain in a wheelchair user with spinal cord injury following a single injection of autologous, micro-fragmented adipose tissue.

New metamaterial can improve MRI quality and reduce scan time

Published: Mon, 10 Jun 2019 11:15:36 EDT

New magnetic metamaterial could be used as an additive technology to increase the imaging power of lower-strength MRI machines, increasing the number of patients seen by clinics and decreasing associated costs, without any of the risks that come with using higher-strength magnetic fields.
