  • New X-ray imaging lets researchers see 'live' the effectiveness of cystic fibrosis treatments August 15, 2014
    Scientists have developed an X-ray imaging system that enables researchers to see 'live' how effective treatments are for cystic fibrosis. Cystic fibrosis affects many of the body's systems, but most severely the lungs, and currently it can take several months to measure how effective treatment is for the early-fatal lung disease.
  • Double vision: New imaging agent improves surgeon's ability to find, remove cancer August 14, 2014
    It’s a question that both cancer surgeons and patients ask after the removal of a malignant tumor – did the procedure “get” all of the cancer? Scientists have now engineered a hybrid imaging agent that maps out tumors before surgery, and causes cancer cells to glow during surgery – improving the surgeon’s ability to find and remove cancerous lesions while pr […]
  • New non-invasive technique controls size of molecules penetrating the blood-brain barrier August 14, 2014
    The size of molecules penetrating the blood-brain barrier can be controlled using acoustic pressure -— the pressure of an ultrasound beam -— to let specific molecules through, a new technique has demonstrated for the first time. This innovative method may help improve drug delivery to the brain. Most small -- and all large -- molecule drugs do not currently […]
  • Imaging system guides brain tumor removal to improve patient outcomes August 12, 2014
    NIBIB-funded researchers have developed an imaging system that rapidly and accurately detects a molecular marker found in brain gliomas. It promises to improve the precision of these difficult surgeries by enabling the complete removal of the tumor, while reducing residual damage to brain tissue and neural function.
  • Prostate cancer diagnosis improves with MRI technology August 12, 2014
    MRI technology has been melded with a traditional ultrasound prostate exam to create a three-dimensional map of the prostate that allows physicians to view growths that were previously undetectable. "With an ultrasound exam, we are typically unable to see the most suspicious areas of the prostate so we end up sampling different parts of the prostate tha […]
  • Robotic-assisted ultrasound imaging: From trans-Atlantic evaluation to help in day-to-day practice August 11, 2014
    While in Germany a surgeon used a computer to perform a robot-assisted trans-Atlantic ultrasound examination on a person in Boston. In another study, a scientist showed how a cardiologist’s video e-consultation, coupled with a remote robot-assisted echocardiogram test, dramatically reduces the waiting time for a diagnosis faced by heart failure patients.
  • Medicinal oil reduces debilitating epileptic seizures associated with Glut1 deficiency, trial shows August 11, 2014
    A rare metabolic disease that caused hundreds of seizures daily for a 6-year-old is now significantly under control as part of a clinical trial that uses a medicinal oil for treatment. Within hours, treatment with an edible oil dramatically reduced the number of seizures for then-4-year-old.
  • Pictures in five seconds: Digital x-ray imaging August 8, 2014
    Wanting to replace the medical equipment for taking X-rays, experts in Mexico have created a system of digital x-ray imaging, which replaces the traditional plaque by a solid detector, which delivers results in five seconds. Analog equipment take six minutes to develop the traditional film.
  • Bone tumor destroyed using incisionless surgery: First in North American child August 6, 2014
    A Canadian child is the first in North America to have undergone a specialized procedure that uses ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to destroy a tumor in his leg without piercing the skin. Doctors used an MRI to guide high-intensity ultrasound waves to destroy a benign bone tumor called osteoid osteoma. The lesion had caused 16-year-old Jack C […]
  • Most kids with blunt torso trauma can skip the pelvic X-ray August 6, 2014
    Pelvic x-rays ordered as a matter of course for children who have suffered blunt force trauma do not accurately identify all cases of pelvic fractures or dislocations and are usually unnecessary for patients for whom abdominal/pelvic CT scanning is otherwise planned. A study casts doubt on a practice that has been recommended by the Advanced Trauma Life Supp […]
