Seeing areas of the brain rarely seen

Radiologists are now able to look at parts of the brain using diffusion tensor imaging that are rarely visible with any other imaging method.

MR Enterography eliminates unnecessary radiation exposure

MR enterography is an effective tool to evaluate and guide treatment of patients with Crohn's Disease without exposing them to radiation.

Examing pregnant patients

Magnetic Resonance Imaging gives physicians a safe and accurate tool for the diagnosis of appendicitis in pregnant patients without the increased risks of radiation to the patient and foetus.

Benefits and risk of advanced imaging

Unnecessary advanced imaging can be significantly reduced by providing a simple intervention of education to ordering physicians of the risks, benefits and alternatives of various imaging modalities.

Evaluating possible pulmonary emboli

The 64-slice CT scanner delivers the most efficient radiation dose to pregnant patients with possible pulmonary emboli providing less risk to the foetus.

Scrambled light, sharper image

An imaging method developed by Princeton researchers could lead to lenses that show all parts of the scene at once in the same high detail.

Hirox-USA, Inc. S-HDR

The S-HDR function, a ground-breaking observation technology based on a Hirox original algorithm, reproduces a dynamic range as a visual image in ways unheard-of until now.

KH 7700 Digital Microscope

KH-7700 is the HIROX's newest most advanced development, the digital camera, light source, integrated LCD monitor, integrated computer and software come all together as one unit.

Triple Rule-Out coronary CT angiography

Physicians can dramatically reduce the radiation dose delivered to patients undergoing coronary CT angiography in a triple rule-out protocol by simply using tube current modulation.

Lower cardiac CT radiation doses

Radiologists can now lower the radiation dose delivered by cardiac CT angiography by 39 per cent in adult patients weighing 185 pounds or less, according to a recent study.

Diagnosing breast cancer

Radiologists have developed a computer based model that aids them in discriminating between benign and malignant breast lesions, according to a recent study.

CT scan danger

Patients who undergo numerous CT scans over their lifetime may be at increased risk for cancer, according to a study recently published.

CT reveals hidden face in Nefertiti bust

Using CT imaging to study a priceless bust of Nefertiti, researchers have uncovered a delicately carved face in the limestone inner core and gained new insights into methods used to create the ancient masterpiece.

Brain network complexity

A brain network linked to introspective tasks -- such as forming the self-image or understanding the motivations of others -- is less intricate and well-connected in children.

MRI/PET Scanner

Two kinds of body imaging -- positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) -- have been combined for the first time in a single scanner.

Classifying dementia

Researchers involved in a large, multi-institutional study using PET imaging with the radiotracer fluorodeoxyglucose were able to classify different types of dementia.

Diagnosis of heart disease

A research team reports their initial experience with a novel imaging technique that enables comprehensive diagnosis of heart disease based on a single CT scan.

Imaging Runner's high

In an imaging study researchers were able to show, for the first time, increased release of endorphins in certain areas of the athletes' brains during a two-hour jogging session.

Cystic fibrosis visualised

Researchers from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have identified a key molecular mechanism that may account for the development of cystic fibrosis.

Arsenic aids tumour imaging

Arsenic linked to a drug that binds to the blood vessels of cancerous tumours provides a powerful imaging agent that could one day allow physicians to detect hard-to-find tumours.
