  • Better way to track emerging cell therapies using MRIs September 19, 2014
    The first human tests of using a perfluorocarbon (PFC) tracer in combination with non-invasive magnetic resonance imaging to track therapeutic immune cells injected into patients with colorectal cancer have been reported by scientists.
  • MS drug candidate shows new promise September 19, 2014
    Positive new data have been released on a drug candidate, RPC1063, for relapsing multiple sclerosis. According to the results from a six-month Phase 2 study of 258 multiple sclerosis patients, the drug candidate reduced the annualized relapse rate of participants with multiple sclerosis by up to 53 percent, compared with placebo. The potential therapy also d […]
  • Down Syndrome helps researchers understand Alzheimer's disease September 18, 2014
    The link between a protein typically associated with Alzheimer’s disease and its impact on memory and cognition may not be as clear as once thought, according to a new study. Researchers looked at the role of the brain protein amyloid-beta in adults living with Down syndrome, a genetic condition that leaves people more susceptible to developing Alzheimer’s.
  • Responsible use of x-rays in dentistry for children September 18, 2014
    Radiologists and dental specialists discuss the implications of the Image Gently campaign in a new article.
  • New microscopy technique yields fresh data on muscular dystrophy September 18, 2014
    A new microscopy technique yields resolution an order of magnitude better than previously possible. Through this new technique, the researchers showed that dystrophin was responsible for regulating tiny molecular fluctuations in calcium channels while muscles are in use. The discovery suggests that a lack of functional dystrophin alters the dynamics of ion c […]
  • PET-CT predicts lymphoma survival better than conventional imaging September 18, 2014
    Positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET-CT) is more accurate than conventional CT scanning in measuring response to treatment and predicting survival in patients with follicular lymphoma, and should be used routinely in clinical practice, according to new research.
  • CT scan is no more accurate than ultrasound to detect kidney stones, study finds September 17, 2014
    To diagnose painful kidney stones in hospital emergency rooms, CT scans are no better than less-often-used ultrasound exams, according to a clinical study conducted at 15 medical centers. "Ultrasound is the right place to start," researchers said. "Radiation exposure is avoided, without any increase in any category of adverse events, and with […]
  • New non-invasive technique could revolutionize imaging of metastatic cancer September 17, 2014
    A new molecular imaging approach could revolutionize doctors’ ability to see tumors that have metastasized to other sites in the body, including the bones. Preclinical animal models of metastatic prostate cancer helped to pave the way for this new development, which uses bioluminescence, nanoparticles, gene manipulation as components of the exciting new appr […]
  • Neurobiological basis for key symptoms associated with post-traumatic stress disorder found by brain imaging research September 17, 2014
    In a novel brain-imaging study among trauma victims, researchers have linked an opioid receptor in the brain -- associated with emotions -- to a narrow cluster of trauma symptoms, including sadness, emotional detachment and listlessness. The study holds important implications for targeted, personalized treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, a […]
  • Magnetic resonance helps detect, quantify fat in liver September 17, 2014
    Excess weight causes important alterations in an organism, one of which affects liver function. Fat accumulates in the liver producing hepatic steatosis which can cause inflammation, fibrosis and cirrhosis. To date, the most reliable method for determining hepatic fat has been hepatic biopsy. Imaging techniques such as abdominal ecography detect, but are les […]
