Imaging: Cell infected by virus viewed

A recently published article describes the researchers' findings about the life cycle of the Sulfolobus turreted icosahedral virus.

Non-traditional imaging technique

Researchers used a special optical device called a nonlinear crystal, rather than an ordinary lens, to capture an image.

Imaging accurately depicts deep endometriosis

Using magnetic resonance imaging, radiologists may be able to diagnose deep endometriosis and accurately locate lesions prior to surgery, according to a new study published online.

New frontier of modern light microscopy

A team of researchers has rendered three-dimensional images through at least six millimeters of tissue, allowing whole-body visualization of adult zebra fish.

MRI scan effectiveness challenged

A study demonstrates that, despite the lack of evidence of their benefit, routine use of MRI scans in women newly diagnosed with breast cancer increased significantly between 2004 and 2005.

Brain mapping and soft tissue imaging

Carl Zeiss has developed a unique series of solutions addressing the different methods for brain mapping and soft tissue imaging.

Reducing radiation in CT imaging

Emergency physicians who evaluate patients with non-specific chest pain using whole chest multi-detector CT combined with retrospective electrocardiogram gating can reduce the patient radiation dose.

Single protein dimers wavering observed with imaging technology

Researchers have used a very sensitive fluorescence technique to find that a bacterial protein thought to exist in one natural three-dimensional structure, can actually twist itself into a second form.

Imaging advance: Cellomics ToxInsight IVT Platform

Cellomics ToxInsight Solution offers a unique combination of imaging hardware and analysis software, and couples pre-validated panels of...

Imaging obvserves memories being made

A recent study has captured an image for the first time of a mechanism, specifically protein translation, which underlies long-term memory formation.

Brain energy use key to understanding consciousness

High levels of brain energy are required to maintain consciousness, a finding which suggests a new way to understand the properties of this still mysterious state of being, researchers report.

Prototype Breast Cancer Imaging System

A prototype breast imaging system combining positron emission tomography and magnetic resonance imaging technologies could greatly improve breast cancer imaging capabilities, according to researchers.

High-Quality Images of Small Tumours

A new study shows that combining high resolution and high sensitivity collimation provides better quality images when using single photon emission computed tomography scans, said researchers.

Hybrid scanner imaging breakthrough

A major barrier to developing a hybrid positron emission tomography/magnetic resonance imaging system could be removed by using a novel approach for reconstructing data

New chemistry techniques improves imaging

A new PET/MR imaging system has been developed that can successfully provide whole-body images of rats and other small animals and could greatly improve imaging capabilities and advance research in many areas.

3-D structure of key nuclear pore block

In new research, scientists have for the first time glimpsed in three dimensions an entire subcomplex of the nuclear pore complex, an innovation fundamental to the development of nearly all multicellular life on earth.

Determining cancer therapy success

A simple magnetic resonance imaging test involving breathing oxygen might help oncologists determine the best treatment for some cancer patients, report researchers.

Assessing breast cancer treatment

Non-invasive imaging can measure how well patients with breast cancer respond to standard aromatase inhibitor therapy after only two weeks.

Past experience is invaluable for decisions

Researchers have shown that past experience really does help when we have to make complex decisions based on uncertain or confusing information.

Visualizing virus replication in 3D

Scientists at the Hygiene Institute at Heidelberg University Hospital were the first to present a three-dimensional model of the location in the human cell where the virus is reproduced.
