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 ...

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 ...
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 ...
Livecyte™ 2 will be available for preview at ASCB, 2018 in San Diego, USA, 8-12th December, giving event delegates the opportunity to explore the new features and additional capabilities of the live cell imaging system from Phasefocus™, prior to its launch in Q1, 2019. Livecyte revolutionised live cell imaging, as the first commercially available instrument […]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 ...
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 ...
