Serious injury or death can occur when patients with implanted neurological stimulators undergo MRI procedures. The FDA ( Food and Drug Administration ) has received several reports of serious inju ...


A biomarker has shown great promise in predicting brain atrophy in patients with Alzheimer's disease. According to John DeBernardis, President and CEO of Applied NeuroSolutions and a co-author of t ...


A non-invasive magnetic resonance imaging ( MRI ) technique called arterial spin labeling is just as accurate as invasive scanning techniques in distinguishing Alzheimer's disease from frontotemporal ...


Researchers at Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions have used a magnetic resonance imaging ( MRI ) technique called diffusion-weighted MRI ( DWI ), a technique that images the movement, or diffusion, of ...


An obstacle to early detection of type 1 diabetes has been the lack of direct, non-invasive technologies to visualize inflammation in the pancreas, an early manifestation of disease. Instead, clinici ...


A study has shown that a special type of MRI scan that measures the movement of water molecules through the brain can help physicians determine halfway through treatment whether it will successfully s ...


The use of positron emission tomography ( PET ) with the radiotracer fluorodeoxyglucose ( FDG ) is “underutilized” in diagnosing and treating cancer of the reproductive organs — the cervix, uterus, ov ...


Using a novel application of an fMRI ( functional magnetic resonance imaging ) technique, researchers at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine have, for the first time, visualized the effe ...


Researchers may have discovered a new way that may assist in the early diagnosis of schizophrenia by utilizing MRI ( magnetic resonance imaging ) to study the patient's brain. Researchers at the Univ ...


A study led by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley has found that brain scans may detect neurological changes in people who exhibit no outward signs of cognitive decline but who late ...


Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford have developed a way to scan young cancer patients' bodies for tumors without exposing them to ...


Imaging tests are essential for staging of children with cancer. However, computed tomography ( CT ) and radiotracer-based imaging procedures are associated with substantial exposure to ionising radia ...


The FDA ( Food and Drug Administration ) is investigating the risk of brain deposits following repeated use of Gadolinium-based contrast agents ( GBCAs ) for magnetic resonance imaging ( MRI ). Rece ...
