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.

Better diagnosis for focal epilepsy

3T MRI is better at detecting and characterising structural brain abnormalities in patients with focal epilepsy than 1.5T MRI, leading to a better diagnosis and safer treatment of patients.

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.
