Unlike other multi-modality PET/SPECT/CT systems, the VECTor technology enables the acquisition […]Continue Reading ...
Researchers have developed a microscope specifically for imaging large groups of interacting cells in their natural environments. The instrument provides scientists with a new tool for imaging neurons in living animals and could provide an unprecedented view into how large networks of neurons interact during various behaviors. In Optica, The Optical Society’s journal for high-impact […]Continue Reading ...
An imaging technique used to detect some forms of cancer can also help detect preeclampsia in pregnancy before it becomes a life-threatening condition, a new Tulane study says. Preelcampsia is a hypertensive disorder that accounts for 14 percent of global maternal deaths annually and affects 5 to 8 percent of all pregnancies. Symptoms may include […]Continue Reading ...
Many types of cancer could be more easily treated if they were detected at an earlier stage. MIT researchers have now developed an imaging system, named “DOLPHIN,” which could enable them to find tiny tumors, as small as a couple of hundred cells, deep within the body. In a new study, the researchers used their […]Continue Reading ...
If traditional drug delivery were a type of painting, it might be akin to paintball. With good aim, a majority of the paint ends on the bullseye, but it also drips and splashes, carrying streams of paint across the target. If the drug needs to enter the bloodstream and circulate throughout your body for treating […]Continue Reading ...
Non-invasive imaging technique could greatly enhance cancer therapies Measuring a fever is usually pretty simple: place a thermometer under a patient’s tongue and get an accurate temperature reading within 30 seconds. But that simplicity does not translate when it comes to measuring the temperatures of specific tissues deep inside the body. Biomedical engineers at Duke […]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 ...

MILabs B.V. is pleased to announce that the Institute of Experimental Molecular Imaging (ExMI) at the RWTH Aachen University has chosen the MILabs high-resolution CT to further enhance its world-leading molecular imaging research. Together with the new MILabs optical tomography system, this unrivaled hybrid OI/CT system enables 3D/4D quantitative imaging in deep-tissues guided by high-contrast […]Continue Reading ...
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 ...
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.
