Enabling earlier thyroid cancer treatment

In a study to determine the diagnostic value of molecular imaging in nodal staging of patients with thyroid cancer, researchers were able for the first time to accurately distinguish between cancerous cells in regional lymph nodes and...

Predicting anxiety treatment success

A new study reports that high levels of brain activity in an emotional centre called the amygdala reflect patients' hypersensitivity to anticipation of adverse events.

Predict effects of MS on optic nerve

Scientists report that an approach known as magnetic resonance diffusion tensor imaging allowed them to estimate three months in advance the chronic effects of inflammation of the optic nerve.

Differentiating colorectal polyps

Researchers compared narrow-band imaging (NBI) without high magnification to standard white light colonoscopy in differentiating colorectal polyps during real-time colonoscopy.

Immune cells intercepting parasites

Researchers may have identified one of the body's earliest responses to a group of parasites that causes illness in developing nations.

Dinosaurs were airheads

By using CT scans, the scientists were able to develop 3-D images of the dinosaur skulls that show a clearer picture of the physiology of the airways.

New technology targets cancers

Breast-specific gamma imaging (BSGI) is effective in the detection of cancers not found on mammograms or by clinical exam, according to a study.

Stressing the brain

Researchers using functional MRI (fMRI) have determined that the circuitry in the area of the brain responsible for suppressing memory is dysfunctional in patients suffering from stress-related psychiatric disorders.

3-D glimpse of bacterial cell-wall architecture

Bacterial cell walls are actually made up of a thin single layer of carbohydrate chains, linked together by peptides, which wrap around the bacterium.

Anorexia impairs adolescent bone development

Children and teenagers with even mild cases of anorexia exhibit abnormal bone structure, according to a new study appearing in the December issue of Radiology.

Novel imaging technique reveals brain abnormalities

A study reveals shape differences in the brains of children with ADHD, which could help pinpoint the specific neural circuits involved in the disorder.

Predicting multiple sclerosis progression

A new study shows that MRI scans used on multiple sclerosis patients to determine if the disease has affected gray matter in the brain can identify those at-risk for progression of disability.

Computer model improves ultrasound image

A Dutch researcher has developed a computer model that can predict the sound transmission of improved designs for ultrasound instruments.

Breast cancer identification

Three-dimensional (3-D) power Doppler ultrasound helps radiologists distinguish between malignant and benign breast masses, according to a new study.

Identifying cervical cancer early

Using high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging with a special vaginal coil, researchers may be able to identify cervical cancer in its early stages.

The Brain Imaging Centre

Recently, the University of Missouri Department of Psychological Sciences introduced an addition to their field of research with the opening of the Brain Imaging Centre.

Modelling 3D structure of amorphous materials

Researchers have accurately identified tools that model the atomic and void structures of a network-forming elemental material.

Atomic resolution hints at enzyme function

An atomic-resolution view of an enzyme found only in the eye has given researchers clues about how this enzyme, essential to vision, is activated.

Detecting high-risk carotid disease

Canadian researchers have used three-dimensional magnetic resonance imaging to accurately detect bleeding within the walls of diseased carotid arteries, a condition that may lead to a stroke.

Flexible, modular microscope

Life science research and routine applications will benefit from the outstanding flexibility and adaptability brought to the market by the Axio Scope.A1 microscope.
