July 31, 2018 The diagnosis of diseases based in internal organs often relies on biopsy samples collected from affected regions. But collecting such samples is highly error-prone due to the inability of current endoscopic imaging techniques to accurately visualize sites of disease. The conventional optical elements in catheters used to access hard-to-reach areas of the […]Continue Reading ...
July 24, 2018 A new study, presented today at the Society of NeuroInterventional Surgery’s (SNIS) 15th Annual Meeting, found that new stroke imaging technology could decrease delays in care by up to 60 minutes, giving patients a better chance at making a full recovery. The study, New Multiple CT Assessment of Acute Stroke Patients: Are […]Continue Reading ...
July 18, 2018 BioTek Instruments, Inc., a leader in life science instrumentation, was recently issued a patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office for their “User-Trained Autofocus” feature in the Gen5™ Microplate Reader and Imager Software, which is integrated with their advanced cell imaging systems. This autofocus method allows users to overcome imaging […]Continue Reading ...
July 10, 2018 A new positron emission tomography (PET) imaging method more fully evaluates the extent of rheumatoid arthritis by targeting translocator protein (TSPO) expression in the synovium (joint lining tissue). The study is featured in the July issue of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine. PET radioligands that target TSPO, which is highly expressed on […]Continue Reading ...
June 27, 2018 Tommy John surgery, or reconstruction of the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in the elbow, has been dubbed an epidemic among Major League Baseball pitchers. A mechanical engineer at Washington University in St. Louis plans to develop a bioinspired imaging technique to study how damage accumulates in the UCL during loading, or the […]Continue Reading ...
June 26, 2018 A novel, intelligent theranostic agent for precise tumor diagnosis and therapy has been developed that remains as small molecules while circulating in the bloodstream, can then self-assemble into larger nanostructures in the tumor, and be activated by the tumor microenvironment for therapy guided by photoacoustic imaging. The research was presented at the […]Continue Reading ...
June 20, 2018 Helping drive research forward at a faster rate, Olympus cellSens 2.1 speeds up image analysis with improved capabilities for flexible camera and microscope control. The updates ensure cellSens remains a powerful tool covering a wide range of applications and benefiting routine microscopy users as well as advanced imaging facilities. A fluorescent image […]Continue Reading ...
June 21, 2018 An interactive preclinical PET-MR workshop with demonstrations of a new 7T integrated PET-MR multi-modality imaging system from MR Solutions and presentations from participants was held in Dijon last week. The Cancer Center Georges François Leclerc (CGFL) organized the event in partnership with the UK based PET-MR supplier MR Solutions to launch a […]Continue Reading ...
July 18, 2018 The Pediatric NEXUS Head Computed Tomography (CT) Decision Instrument (DI) reliably identifies blunt trauma patients who require head CT imaging and could significantly reduce the use of CT imaging. Those are the findings of a study to be published in the July issue of Academic Emergency Medicine, a journal of the Society […]Continue Reading ...
July 13, 2018 Follow-up imaging for women with non-metastatic breast cancer varies widely across the country, according to a new study led by researchers at UC San Francisco. Some patients go without the annual mammograms that experts recommend, while others with the same cancer diagnosis receive full-body scans that expose them to significant amounts of […]Continue Reading ...
July 2, 2018 While ultrasound is one of the most common medical imaging tools, conventional electronic ultrasound devices tend to be bulky and cannot be used at the same time as some other imaging technologies. A new ultrasound system that uses optical, instead of electronic components, could improve performance while giving doctors significantly more flexibility […]Continue Reading ...
June 27, 2018 Researchers have scaled up a powerful fluorescence imaging technique used to study biological processes on the cellular level. Previously limited to samples just millimeters in area, the expanded approach can analyze samples with areas up to 4 square centimeters. With further development the new approach could find use in the clinic as […]Continue Reading ...
June 26, 2018 The new VECTor6 imaging system is packed with exclusive preclinical PET imaging features including 0.6 mm 18F resolution, the elimination of positron-range blurring for e.g. 124I, simultaneous multi-isotope PET and PET/SPECT tomography, and α- and β-radiotherapy imaging. At the 2018 Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI), June 23-26, MILabs announced […]Continue Reading ...
By Sally Robertson, BScJune 18, 2018 A team of engineers, physicians and radiologists, led by The University of Cambridge, have developed an algorithm to monitor arthritis that could change the way that the severity of the disease is assessed and treated. Image Credit: Bluskystudio / Shutterstock The technique could enable a better understanding of how […]Continue Reading ...
