A new nuclear medicine imaging method could help diagnose widespread tumors, such as breast, colon, pancreas, lung and head and neck cancer better than current methods, with less inconvenience to patients and with equal or improved accuracy. The study is featured in the September issue of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine. The new imaging method, […]Continue Reading ...
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 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 ...
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 ...
Sep 6 2018 MILabs announces that it has successfully completed the installation of its next-generation Adaptive U-CTXUHR at Sydney Imaging, a Core Research Facility of the University of Sydney. Recognizing that excellence in research is increasingly linked to excellence in infrastructure capability, Sydney Imaging selected MILabs X-ray CT system for its unprecedented dose-efficiency for in […]Continue Reading ...
Purdue University researchers are developing a novel biomedical imaging system that combines optical and ultrasound technology to improve diagnosis of life-threatening diseases. Photoacoustic tomography is a noninvasive technique that works by converting absorbed optical energy into acoustic signal. Pulsed light is sent into body tissue, creating a small increase in temperature that causes the tissue […]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 ...
