Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses a large magnet and radio waves to look at organs and structures inside your body. Health care professionals use MRI scans to diagnose a variety of conditions, from torn ligaments to tumors. MRIs are very useful for examining the brain and spinal cord. Also called: Magnetic resonance imaging, NMR, Nuclear magnetic resonance.
The creation of a silica nanocapsule could allow treatments that use light to destroy cancerous or precancerous cells in the skin to also be used to treat other types of cancer.
Researchers at the University of Arkansas have developed a new nano drug candidate that kills triple negative breast cancer cells.
A luminescent fluid made up of nanoparticles that allows more accurate observation of different areas of the organism has been developed by a research team from the Colloidal Materials group of the Institute of Materials Science of Seville (a CSIC-University of Seville joint centre) in collaboration with the Institute of Materials Science of Aragon, the Andalusian Centre of Medicine and Biotechnology (BIONAND) and the Spanish National Accelerator Centre (CNA).
Heart Failure impacts between three to four per cent of the general population. While commonly related to heart attacks it can also be due to a condition called dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), a disease characterized by an enlarged and weak heart muscle that can't efficiently pump blood.
A new molecular imaging approach utilizing 18F-FDG positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can precisely identify the location of pain generators in chronic pain sufferers, often precipitating a new management plan for patients.
Research has shown that the tumor microenvironment (TME) can help cancers grow and evade the immune response. The TME has even been shown to inhibit cellular immunotherapy, a novel form of treatment in which the cells of a patient's immune system are re-engineered in the lab to attack cancer cells.
How does the use of mobile devices affect children's brains? A team from the Barcelona Institute for Global Health, a center supported by the "la Caixa" Foundation, has conducted the first epidemiological study to explore the relationship between brain volume in preadolescents--more than 2,500 Dutch children--and different doses of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF).
The German Institute for Quality and Efficiency in Health Care (IQWiG) used an evidence map to investigate to what extent informative evidence exists on the benefit and harm of the diagnostic procedures "non-invasive computed tomography angiography" (CTA) and "stress MRI" in people with suspected coronary heart disease (CHD).
Researchers have previously identified brain structural signatures associated with individual neurological diseases using techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Schizophrenia symptoms may be the result of increased connections between sensory and language-processing brain areas.
Marina Domracheva and Sofya Kulikova, researchers from HSE University's campus in Perm, have discovered a new approach to analyse the perceived similarity of food products, based on electroencephalography (EEG) signals.
A new federal grant will allow young scientists to delve into the mechanisms of emotional eating and preeclampsia and other disorders not considered "classic" metabolic diseases.
Researchers at the University of California, Davis offers a significant advance in using magnetic resonance imaging to pick out even very small tumors from normal tissue.
Living cells inside the body could be placed under surveillance--their location and migration noninvasively tracked in real time over many days--using a new method developed by researchers at KAUST.
Scientists have trained a computer to analyze different types of brain scan and predict the age of the human brain, according to a new study in the open-access journal eLife.
A possible new strategy for treating pancreatic cancer highlights the promise of collaboration between experts in both precision medicine and immunology.
Using night-vision goggle technology, near-infrared light, and high-resolution detectors, a wearable imaging device for awake infants with brain disorders was developed by a team of scientists and a pediatric neurosurgeon at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth).
University of Virginia researchers are pioneering the use of focused ultrasound to defy the brain's protective barrier so that doctors could, at last, deliver many treatments directly into the brain to battle neurological diseases.
Researchers have developed a computer algorithm based on Artificial Intelligence that can accurately predict the risk for and diagnose Alzheimer's disease using a combination of brain magnetic resonance imaging, testing to measure cognitive impairment, along with data on age and gender.
People who approach the front desk at Albert Einstein Jewish Hospital (HIAE) in the city of São Paulo have their temperature taken remotely by a computer vision system installed in a nearby column.
