Prostate cancer is the second prevent type of cancer that exists. Prostate cancer is usually a slowly progressing disease but it can sometimes manifest as an aggressive cancer. Prostate imaging is the primary way to diagnose the disease and this necessity drives its demand in the clinic. This review covers traditional and new imaging methods […]Continue Reading ...
An interview with Dr Susan Tappan, explaining MBF’s partnership with Huron Digital Pathology allows researchers to achieve large-scale, repeatable whole slide imaging, conducted at SfN 2018 by Alina Shrourou, BSc. What is meant by “whole-slide” imaging? Whole slide imaging is the capability to scan at high resolution an entire glass slide that has multiple histological […]Continue Reading ...
Using MRI to study the brains of young female athletes has helped researchers develop an objective way to monitor a concussion injury. By using a technique that combines both structural and functional MRI information, Western University researchers were able to identify three unique signatures – one that shows acute brain changes after an athlete has […]Continue Reading ...
The SP8 FALCON Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging (FLIM) solution from Leica Microsystems, has been recognized with a prestigious R&D 100 Award. The annual award is presented to the 100 most exceptional innovations in science and technology introduced during the previous year. The lifetime of a fluorescence signal carries information on cellular microenvironment and molecular interactions. The […]Continue Reading ...

WEDNESDAY, Dec. 5, 2018 — Subsequent imaging is required for 10 to 15.5 percent of women who undergo mastectomy, according to a study published in the December issue of the Annals of Surgical Oncology. Soojin Ahn, M.D., from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City, and colleagues conducted a retrospective […]Continue Reading ...
Please can you tell us a bit about Photon’s etc preclinical infrared imagers? What sets them apart from others on the market? Photon Etc.’s (IR VIVO™) system is the first and only turnkey hyperspectral preclinical imager optimized for imaging in the second biological window of the infrared (NIR-II) / short-wavelength infrared (SWIR) range available on […]Continue Reading ...
By combining two imaging modalities–adaptive optics and angiography–investigators at the National Eye Institute (NEI) can see live neurons, epithelial cells, and blood vessels deep in the eye’s light-sensing retina. Resolving these tissues and cells in the outermost region of the retina in such unprecedented detail promises to transform the detection and treatment of diseases such […]Continue Reading ...
A team of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign researchers led by Professor Stephen Boppart has successfully visualized the tumor microenvironment of human breast tissue shortly after it was surgically removed from a patient in the operating room. The researchers achieved this using a new portable optical imaging system developed in Boppart’s lab. This work, which […]Continue Reading ...
Home News Professional Novel Breast Imaging Technique Might Cut Unnecessary Biopsies THURSDAY, Dec. 13, 2018 — A novel technique, quantitative three-compartment breast (3CB) image analysis of dual-energy mammography combined with mammography radiomics, could reduce unnecessary breast biopsies, according to a study published online Dec. 11 in Radiology. Karen Drukker, Ph.D., from the University of Chicago, […]Continue Reading ...
In the world of biological imaging, there are few technologies that can crisply capture structure (of a body part or tumor, for instance) and molecular detail at the same time — especially in a live animal. But scientists in the lab of Adam de la Zerda, PhD, assistant professor of structural biology, have married a well-established […]Continue Reading ...
Today, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) announced funding for open-source software efforts to improve image analysis and visualization in biomedicine. Microscopy — critical to modern cell biology — generates large volumes of complex data that pose significant challenges for analysis and visualization. The funding will support developers (“Imaging Software Fellows”) from three projects to develop […]Continue Reading ...
Nov 29 2018 Technology innovators in super-resolution microscopy, Amsterdam-based Confocal.nl,reports on the implementation of a new turnkey confocal imaging system in the laboratory of Professor Markus Sauer at the University of Würzburg. Andreas Kurz with the RCM confocal/dSTORM system located in Professor Markus Sauer’s laboratory at the University of Würzburg Professor Markus Saueris the Chair […]Continue Reading ...
The International Contrast Ultrasound Society (ICUS) applauds the announcement of dramatic changes in payment for contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) imaging of the abdomen. The changes, which will go into effect in the U.S. on January 1, 2019, include a new “Category I” CPT code to support the use of CEUS for non-cardiac abdominal imaging. ICUS, an […]Continue Reading ...
A new special edition of the International Journal of Radiation Oncology* Biology* Physics (Red Journal) focuses on the roles of imaging in radiation oncology. 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 ...
