Study challenges routine use of MRI

A new study suggests women with newly-diagnosed breast cancer who receive an MRI after their diagnosis face delays in starting treatment and are more likely to receive a mastectomy.

When multitasking works best

A new brain imaging study led by a cognitive neuroscientist at the University of New Hampshire finds that there are optimal times when we are better suited to multitask.

PET scans identify mood changes

Brain scans taken at different times of year suggest that the actions of the serotonin transporter-involved in regulating the mood-altering neurotransmitter serotonin-vary by season..

Chronic insomnia linked to cognitive deficits

Cognitive processes related to verbal fluency are compromised in people with insomnia despite the absence of a behavioural deficit.

Mass Spec to aid proteomics

Princeton University is utilizing mass spectrometry for research on virus-host protein interactions and on chromatin.

Sleepless night increases dopamine

Just one night without sleep can increase the amount of the chemical dopamine in the human brain, according to new imaging research.

Determining membrane protein structure

By various methods, a team has developed a unique means for probing protein chemistry and structure through the use of solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy.

MagnaRay Spectrometer

Thermo Fisher Scientific announced the launch of the first intelligent Wavelength Dispersive X-ray spectrometer, the Thermo Scientific MagnaRay WDS Spectrometer.

Rare mutant cells seen

MIT biological engineers have developed a new imaging system that allows them to see cells that have undergone a specific mutation.

Differentiating between ulcers

Multidetector CT using virtual gastroscopy and post contrast enhanced multiplanar reformation images can be useful in differentiating between malignant and benign gastric ulcers.

Muscles in action

Researchers are now able to look at tiny fibres of working muscles in live humans, with minimum discomfort to the patient-a development patients are sure to welcome.

Pocket-sized MRI

Scientists have developed a small portable MRI scanner that performs its services in the field: for instance to examine ice cores.

Very small, very clear

At the core of TIGA, an imaging robot scans the tissue slices and displays them on the monitor for researchers at ultra high resolution and in various planes.

Probing protein interactions

MIT researchers have designed a new type of probe that can image thousands of interactions between proteins inside a living cell.

Grief tied to pleasure in brain

Scientists at UCLA suggest that such long-term or "complicated" grief activates neurons in the reward centres of the brain, possibly giving these memories addiction-like properties.

Blood supply to medial and lateral breast tumours

The use of MRI is effective in differentiating the blood supply to medial and lateral breast tumours, which is important in treatment planning and prognosis.

Detecting prostate cancer with MRI

The use of MRI without endorectal coil can detect prostate cancer and provide undistorted images with diagnostic image quality and accurate tumour localisation.

Visualising magnetic fields

Researchers have succeeded in a direct, three-dimensional visualisation of magnetic fields inside solid, non-transparent materials.

Genes in action

Researchers describe the development of gene probe eye drops that make it possible to monitor and detect tissue repair in the brain of living organisms using MRI.

MRI charts blood volume

A special type of magnetic resonance imaging can depict changes in blood volume in the brain that often precede cancerous transformation of brain tumours.
