The collection explores topics such as improving accuracy with patient positioning, defining radiation therapy volumes using imaging, imaging of functional biomarkers, the role of imaging in post-treatment care, machine learning and […]Continue Reading ...
Nov 6 2018 At the 2018 Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuroscience, Bruker announced the release of the Luxendo MuVi SPIM CS light-sheet fluorescence microscope for imaging optically cleared samples. The MuVi SPIM technology allows fast, long-term imaging of large samples with highest resolution and optical sectioning, as well as minimized photodamage. By means […]Continue Reading ...
Advances in real-time hyperspectral imaging gives neurosurgeons new precision when operating on the brain, improving patient outcomes Identifying healthy from diseased tissue poses a unique problem for cancer surgeons. Even the smallest bits of a tumor left behind during surgery can regrow and spread to other organs, a deadly phenomenon called metastasizing. To guard against […]Continue Reading ...
JBI is a peer-reviewed publication that aims to provide high quality, evidence-based content for the global breast imaging medical community. The journal seeks to advance the field of breast imaging, with particular focus on improving patient care and outcomes. JBI will publish original research, as well as reviews of important scientific, educational, and clinical topics. […]Continue Reading ...
The proportion of breast cancer patients who are eligible for breast conservation therapy, yet opt for mastectomy, is increasing, for reasons that include the desire to eliminate future screening and/or biopsy of the remaining breast tissue. A new study led by researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai has determined that having […]Continue Reading ...
While liver biopsies are powerful and reliable, they are also invasive, painful, limited and subject to complications. These effects may soon be a thing of the past for some patients thanks to new research showing PET imaging with the 18F-FAC radiotracer can be used as a non-invasive substitute. The study is featured in the October […]Continue Reading ...
Sep 20 2018 Logos Biosystems has released the all-new CELENA® X integrated High Content Imaging System, providing the complete solution for rapid high content image acquisition and quantitative analysis. The new CELENA® X produces powerful digital imaging in four modes, while laser autofocusing and motorized positioning of the XYZ stage ensures rapid, reproducible and clear […]Continue Reading ...
Current standard imaging techniques for initial staging of prostate cancer often underestimate the extent of disease beyond the prostate. A study featured in The Journal of Nuclear Medicine’s November issue demonstrates that prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) can pinpoint prostate cancer locations with superior accuracy. More accurate detection makes more precisely […]Continue Reading ...
Nov 5 2018 At the 2018 Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuroscience, Bruker today announced the release of the Ultima 2Pplus next-generation multiphoton, all-optical stimulation and simultaneous imaging platform for neurobiology applications. The Ultima 2Pplus features the best commercially available combination of advanced photostimulation experiments, including holographic stimulation, combined with simultaneous wide-field, enhanced-sensitivity imaging. […]Continue Reading ...
The fast-moving advancement in medical imaging technology has revolutionized health care science. When information technology is integrated with imaging technology, it takes health care to new horizons. On the other hand, there is an increase in the number of health care workers to meet the need of growing population and requirement of quality health services. […]Continue Reading ...
A Research and Development group led by Professor Yoshifumi Saijo of Tohoku University and Noriyuki Masuda of Advantest has succeeded in developing in vivo skin imaging technology that can simultaneously generate dual-wavelength photoacoustic images and ultrasound images. The research is part of the “Innovative Visualization Technology to Lead to Creation of a New Growth Industry” […]Continue Reading ...
A team of Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) Hollings Cancer Center researchers received a three-year, $1.2 million grant from the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) to test a potential therapeutic antibody that could block breast cancer growth with fewer side effects, opening up potential for future drug development. The team will deploy innovative molecular […]Continue Reading ...
Robert Gillies, Ph.D., chair of the Department of Cancer Physiology and vice chair of Radiology Research at Moffitt Cancer Center, was awarded the World Molecular Imaging Society’s highest honor. The 2018 Gold Medal Award recognizes his contributions to the field of molecular imaging. The award was presented to Gillies earlier this month at the World […]Continue Reading ...
